East Britain, December 27: The news of the death of the famous British model Stella Tinnat, at the age of 50 and in mysterious circumstances, was one of the last sad surprises in 2020.
Here, we recall the most prominent milestones of its success throughout its 30 years of participation in the most famous international fashion events.
Tennant was born and raised in the Scottish aristocracy. She entered the world of fashion in the nineties of the last century, where she was famous for her features that mixed the characteristics of femininity and masculinity.
The late designer Gianni Versace considered her an inspiration to him, and she participated in many of his shows and repeatedly appeared in the shows of the most famous international designers. Stella has also participated in campaigns for Burberry, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Calvin Klein. It has appeared on the covers of top fashion magazines like Vogue and Harper's Bazaar.
In the late 1990s, Stella caught the attention of Karl Lagerfeld, the late Chanel creative director, who found similarities in her appearance to founder Gabrielle Chanel. She participated in many of the house's shows and was also chosen as the face of advertising campaigns for its cosmetic products.
In 1999, Stella Tennant married photographer David Lacente, and had four children with him, which led her to move away from the world of show. Many international roles have worked hard to bring Tennant back into fashion, including Alexander McQueen, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Chanel. She appeared at the conclusion of the 2012 Olympic Games, accompanied by the most famous British models such as Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell to represent the British fashion industry.
In 2018, Tennant participated in a show of Berluti and Alexander McQueen in 2019.
In the same year, she also participated in a show at Saint Laurent, during which she wore a bright black tuxedo. As for the last show she participated in, it was at the beginning of this year when she opened Valentino's Spring / Summer 2020 couture show. Her family mourned her in a statement: “She was a wonderful woman, and she inspired all of us. We will miss her a lot.”
