Such sad news on a gloomy, rainy day. According to the NY Times blog The Cut: “Model Daul Kim was found dead in Paris this morning, her agents at Next confirm. “She was a top model and a great friend to all of us at Next. Please respect her family’s privacy at this time of sadness. We will all miss her very much,” they said in a statement. The cause of death remains unknown at this time but a source tells the Cut the 20-year-old committed suicide. She will be missed.”
I was a regular reader of Daul’s Blog “I Like To Fork Myself“. I enjoyed reading her random ramblings, stories from her life, and looking at the latest photos from her many travels and fashion campaigns. Daul was an incredibly successful model, working with many well-known designers, and shooting ads for the likes of Chanel. She captured her readers’ hearts with her quirky personality and always inspiring, thought-provoking posts. And though I didn’t know her personally, the news of her death really touched me. I guess, sometimes fellow bloggers become almost like virtual friends to each other, and virtual or not, my heart goes out to Daul’s friends and family at this horrible time.
