Daul Kim – Magnifique!


I remember that feeling, that intense pull from the page, a model like I’d never seen before, a creature sad but beautiful all at once Asian features, and bleach blonde hair, she was mesmerising. That magazine was iD Magazine and the issue was a tribute in recognition of Michael Jackson’s passing. The song choice that inspired the editorial was ‘Dirty Diana’ and the model was 20 year old sensation Daul Kim. Months later she was to take her own life but I will never forget how move I was by that editorial and even more so by hearing of her death. Such a talent, an honest beauty that was so natural in hr movements that she perhaps never real posed just invited us in. I prefer to think of it more along the lines of I’m glad I saw her work and that she left us with such emotive images as oppose to her having never graced us at all.

Daul Kim, I won’t forget you, I can’t.
