On Wednesday morning, however, McMenamy allegedly made an unscheduled appearance at the Amanda Wakeley show. At the same time, it was confirmed that she was at the London studio of the designer Sonja Nuttall to be fitted for a coat to be worn during the Philip Treacy show. Confusion reigned, but not for long. Be, a German model - also in London for the shows - bears a very, very striking resemblance to McMenamy; it was her in the Wakeley show. But with her similar angular face, big eyes, and almost exactly the same hairstyle, it is understandable that there was some confusion. As shown above, both at the Alexander McQueen show - the two models could have been separated at birth.
It was rumoured that supermodel Kristen McMenamy was coming to London to appear in the shows of Philip Treacy, Hussein Chalayan and Alexander McQueen. Then an equally furious rumour abounded that she had decided to bypass London and go straight to Milan - leaving the designers without a star model.
