Leigh Lezark has come a looong way from her native Toms River, New Jersey. I guess things could’ve gone the Jersey Shore way, but instead, Lezark (1/3 of the Misshapes) is a fashion darling, mingling with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Matthew Williamson, and Galliano. Not too shabby for a girl my age!
Admittedly, she hasn’t been on my style radar for very long. But all it took was a photo of her, wearing a black and white printed bodysuit to Chanel’s Spring 2010 show (below) – now that took some serious cojones – for me to develop a raging (head over heels) girl crush! And though her style seems a tad all over the place, no one can deny that if the girl put on a garbage bag and accessorized it with some stale spaghetti – she’d still look better than 90% of the population.
I also adore Leigh’s fun-loving, devil-may-care attitude, that shines through the many candids from CobraSnake’s site. And while Gawker “lovingly” nicknamed the model/DJ “Princess Coldstare”, I can’t help but think that it’s all part of her public persona…I mean could a person making a “meow/hiss” face at a fur-coat-wearing older man really be that icy? I think not, but hopefully, I’ll find out soon enough, when she’s in Toronto for the Moon Apparel Launch Party!
What do you guys think about Leigh and her style? Let me know in the comments.
