Kyleigh Kuhn (USA): an afternoon with a Bruce Weber favorite


Kyleigh Kuhn (Next, NY) came from California to New York to model. She made the move to Next Models after a meeting with Next's founder, Faith Kates. I had the chance to shoot Kyleigh when she was new to New York, fresh off a Bruce Weber set. What follows is an afternoon in the life of a top model, highlighting things that characterize Kyleigh: not a runway, not an editorial, not a campaign. Just Kyleigh, pure and simple.


2:00 planning/scheduling her next trip to Afghanistan for her charity work


her living room wall


a close up of a piece on her wall, she decorated it all herself


those are real gun bullets she found on the street in Williamsburg


2:30 Kyleigh gets ready for a trip to the local organic market. She's an avid reader, showcasing her books alongside one of her favorite rings and pair of shoes


2:35 checking out her appearance before heading out


2:37 which included a side trip to her bedroom. I couldn't help but notice these vintage figurine cars and match boxes


2:38 and then notice this bona fide Fire Bat hanging on her wall


2:40 and all her jewelry choices


2:41 my favorites


2:45 playing around with her vintage cabinetry


2:50 Kyleigh has an interesting selection of hats to choose from. They indicate her personality as much as her choice in books and vintage card deck.


3:00 she's off to the local organic market with her boyfriend


3:15 Kyleigh comes out with a baguette, fresh cherry tomatoes, aged parmesan cheese, baby arugula, baby spinach, lemons, and basil


3:30 Kyleigh/caught sneaking a cherry tomato


4:15 dinner is served
Entree--olive oil, tomatos, basil, pasta
asparagus--fried covered on low heat for 15 minutes simmered in real butter
bread--both sides dipped in olive oil and pepper, oven baked for 8 minutes with goat cheese
salad--baby arugula, baby spinach, fresh squeezed lemon juice mixed with olive oil, pepper, and aged shaved parmesan cheese



5:15 last but not least, Kyleigh unwinds for some alone time on her fire escape, curling up with Hemingway and peace and quiet.

Love her interior decorating and choice of reading material!

Chelsea said...

She seems to have the coolest sense of style from her outfit choice, to how she decorates her house with all those interesting vintage pieces. Also that dinner looks incredible! It's nice to see a model eating a good wholesome meal.

What a fantastic apartment -- all the trinkets and odds and ends. The photos are really lovely as well!

I really like these posts that dig deeper into the lives of the models -- sort of like Altamira meets the Selby.

@Juliet--just to clarify--these photos are not meant to copy The Selby. In fact, I never go to his site. Ever. These photos are my way of going deeper into Models Off Duty, as a lifestyle as opposed to just their home.
