Grey Matter: Model Kristen McMenamy Proves Silver Hair Is Chic

Supermodel Kristen McMenamy is taking on one of fashion's biggest taboos: grey hair. The 45-year-old model was seen on the July cover of youth culture bible Dazed and Confused, and again flaunting her grey mane in the August issue of Vogue.

Grey hair is a trend we've been tracking for a while, but it's normally fake silver tresses seen on younger women like Kelly Osbourne or Peaches Geldof. Even fashion royalty Kate Moss and Victoria Beckham have been snapped sporting a grey streak.

The amazing thing about Kristen is her silver mane is entirely natural, her grey did not come out of a bottle and we love her original and individual look.

But what do you think? Is Kristen a true trend-setter or should we leave silver off the style pages? Should fashion learn to embrace grey or sideline the slate look? Leave your comments below.
