Amber Rose Wigs Out in YRB MagazineJune 17th, 2010
Model material or just a material girl?
Amber Rose put her Ford Modeling Agency contract to work for the YRB Magazine. Although she told the mag: “I’m very comfortable with my body, even in my home I’m always naked. I love being free – no hair and no clothes!” Kanye’s girl got highly stylized and went for a modern day Marilyn Monroe moment for the shoot.
What is it with everyone and these cartoony wigs right now (ahem ‘Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj’s)? I think Amber’s much more appealing and stand-out with her short fade, but about the clothes?
The model played dress up in a gaudy lace and stud detailed tutu number, short sequined mini and other embellished looks including a shoulder-detailed black dress. In the article she confessed, “I was always a ‘weirdo’ – well that’s what people would call me” when it came to her style and she continues to push the fashion envelope today wearing everything from lady-like skirt suits to spandexy video vixen get ups. “I still do my own thing!” she said. ”Whatever makes me feel good. If I want to wear clown pants and a church hat then that’s what I’m gonna wear. [Laughs] Well, maybe not that extreme, but I could definitely pull it off.”
“I have always been a fashionistaever since I was a kid, so it was a dream come true,” Amber said about her emerging modeling career. ”It’s an adrenaline rush to walk down the runway. I never thought this would happen to me… [Modeling] is just the beginning for me. I want to explore all different avenues of life and build a career for myself. But I would love to keep modeling for campaigns and magazines. It’s fun to get glammed up!”
Did she work it in this shoot?
