You may have noticed various celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Kelly Osbourne, and Kate Moss wandering around with stupid-colored hair. Turns out there’s a reason for it! And it’s also stupid. Model Kristen McMenamy’s naturally gray hair has sparked a fad, and people have latched on to it as though they wouldn’t start dyeing their own hair the second an actual grey strand showed up, not to mention shoot their faces full of Botox just in case.

McMenamy was a model back in the day with Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Cindy Crawford. She never achieved their popularity, as she didn’t have it going on as much in the traditional sense. But since fashion has run out of ways to glorify girls with toddler faces and pre-pubescent bodies, they’ve decided that old is the new beautiful, and Kristen is seeing something of a resurgence in popularity. Yay for her. Clearly, the next step is getting Betty White and Cloris Leachman on the runway. I think it goes without saying that I would absolutely support that.
