Nastassja Kinski, 1989, by David Mcgough.
My birthday is coming so soon. I love it but it is still sending me for a bit of spin. Like walking on ping pong balls. But I love seeing more and more photos of “older women”, the street shots by The Sartorialist especially, he captures some striking, strong, sexy Italian women so well, paparazzi shots of an “older” Kate Moss [I know, I know, she is hardly “older” but any age in women has been so thoroughly hidden before and still is in her campaigns for example]. I have actually been pretty obsessed by this “older woman” idea for a while. As in “what do they know?”, “what are there lives really like?” And then just the look fascinates me.
When looking up some information on Nastassja Kinski, her birth date on Wikipedia is unconfirmed. As much as I like the truth about everything being told, I like mystery too. It is almost impossible to have an unconfirmed birth date now.
Anyway, I have been a fan of her’s forever. And wanted to share these Japanese modeling photos of her from when she was 13, and a few other photos too.
I love this softly belted oversize trench, because yes i love trenches.

Thank you to my amazing online friend nicolas cage vampire teeth for the modeling photos and reminding me how incredible Ms. Kinski is.
So… how old will I be? I’m not telling!
