    Alexandra Richards Versus the World
    Busy Richards proves a Rolling Stone gathers no moss

    Wednesday, July 28, 2004

    Not content on just having one highly successful and lucrative advertising campaign, Alexandra Richards—daughter of Rolling Stone Keith Richards and Patti Hansen—is now the face of Versus for fall/winter 2004. Richards, who turns 18 today, most recently starred as the face of Guerlain’s Shalimar fragrance, along with her mother, Hansen, and sister, Theodora. “She’s just a smart, dedicated, and focused individual,” said Ivan Bart, a vice president and Richards’ representative at the models division of IMG (which also owns The Daily), “And she’s got a star quality to her.”

    Steven Meisel photographed Richards for the Italian line—geared towards a younger fashion crowd—producing a total of six images for the global campaign, which will debut in select September books around the world. In this particular Bill Mullen-styled image (shown at right), Richards—accompanied by models Dovile, Christoffer Fagerli, and Boyd—wears a viscose jersey ruched front turtleneck dress. “We’re excited to represent Alexandra and the Versace house apparently saw the same thing we did—that she’s painfully beautiful,” Bart added.

    Ehh...don't like her - never have...

    there's something off about her facial structure that doesn't sit well with me...the only one I vaguely like is the last one with the eyewear.

    I haven't been fond of Versace these days, either...at least, not their ads...

    I read an article in ELLE about the Proenza Schouler show, and it's model casting - Alexandra Richards showed up, and the boys rejected her.

    :innocent:

    She looks quite interesting in that last shot, although it's hard to really see her.

    She's got Keith's protruding mouth and not enough of Patti's looks.

    The ads are OK, they made her annoying "pout" look less ugly... ...which is a good thing. :wink:

    These are dumb, and so is her "look". Painfully beautiful? Um, okay.

    I don't find her, or her sister for that matter, at all attractive.....in fact, you could even say I find them ugly.

    Theodora has her dad's mouth. Alexandra has his cro-magnon forehead. They're cuter than Elizabeth Jagger, but that's not saying much.
