Note (and pics) from Grace

She's fabulous AND she's crazy!


"Hi boys. Grace Kelsey here. I've really enjoyed the posts about Season 2 and thanks to everyone for all the fine compliments. I'm flattered! I'm also pretty into the ongoing battle of the Hair Harpies. How exciting, especially in German."


"Perhaps this family was inspired by the Harpies. Ooooo-eeeee! That's just wrong. And I caught the doggie on Animal Planet's Ugliest Dog Contest. Looks like he's related too. Perhaps not a he with the pearls and all, but you never know."


"Here's my take on the era though my hair can't compete at all. This lion's half way there."


"Here... This hair's more like it, and no its not a wig. Thats my real hair, folks."


"And to think I used to look like this. Man, I can't believe I'm showing you this. This was back when some kid in my class used to call me FourEyesMonkeyTrainTracks. Wonder why? Now that's some nice hair... Wow. Knobby knees maybe? Can't accuse me of being anorexic... proof that twig's au naturale. And yes, I used to dance."


"And then I blossomed into a slimey bar fly guy. 'Can I buy you a drink?' Hey, even straight people like to cross dress sometimes! Oh, and thats one of MY favorite ways to do my hair."


"...but mostly I just sit around trying to figure out how to be more like this woman."


"At least here, I come close. Like Marilyn, my murderers made it look as suicide."

We love her now more than ever.

"...And yes, I used to dance."

That explains her fabulous walk, especially for the ice skating challenge.

Thank you for stopping by, darling, you are fabulous!

OMG!Goddess of the insane! She's fantastic! How hilarious was that! And so not afraid to show the homely years! I have newfound (as well as old found) respect for the Germanic Glamazon!

When I first saw the screen cap of the pose at the end of the runway, in the ice skating dress, I thought it was photoshopped. That was one beautiful picture. You are a great model. I love your hair braided and I like those old pulp fiction paperback covers, too.

I take back what I said. Brilliant.

Wow, that's too fabulous for words

Beauty with WIT always wins. Grace joins the list along with Laura Bennett and Myrna Loy (and they are all redheads!).

I didn't realize Grace is German, guess we never heard her talk on the show. This post is the best of the designers/models checking in - not to blow her own horn about upcoming events (of which I am sure there are plenty) but just to share the fun and fabulousness that is Grace. And I agree with sewhat, can you imagine what a team Laura and Grace would have made? To die for!

Damn 6'2", gorgeous AND a brain.

Now I understand the synergy with Chloe. My talents lie in the foodie arena, but dayum, the three of us could be BFF, over three decades.

All the best to you, Grace, you cheeky monkey. :-)

This post makes me wish that Grace got more of her personality out during season 2! Like, that she actually got to speak on camera. It would have been spectacular, I'm sure.

She's sooo fabulous. :)

I checked out her website and it's fabulous too. Not only a great model but also an artist! Loved the line drawings. Beauty, brains, talent and humor! Grace is the total package and I'm in love.

I fucking LOVE Grave. That bitch is F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!

I would go straight for her in a heartbeat.

She is so goddamn gorgeous.

What a hoot! Makes we wish they'd show more footage of the models interacting with each other and with the designers--of course, they'd have to make each episode 2 hours.

You fabulous creature!!!

How about a regular feature from Grace? Boys? Grace?

(Do you have your own blog, o Amazonia and tap-dancin' four-eyed cutie?)

You make it work. And, we just sit back and marvel.

Brains, beauty, a sense of humor, legs that go on forever, AND she doesn't take herself too seriously. Now that is a girl who will go far. Thanks, Grace. Looooved it!

Grace and Laura make me proud to be a pale redhead. Work it, ladies!

Do her legs ever stop? Damn!

I loved Grace before.

But she just shot herself so far up on the fabulous scale it's amazing.

Girl is brilliant. I can't believe we didn't get much model personality season 2!

Crow Winters said...

Love. Her.

Brandenburg3rd said...

OMG, Grace and Laura together? Watch out, world. I'd pay to see that one. (Better yet, I'd claim the concession rights.) They'd whup ass and take names--but in a fabulously glamorous way, of course.

Suzanne said...

Grace is fierce ! Love her! Can models come back for another season?

Wouldn't a PR Allstar edition be great? Bringing back , say , the favorite 10 designers who didn't make it to Bryant park and our favorite models as well??

Loved it. Beautiful and a sense of humor? Absolutely divine.

I agree with potty mouth princess. It was always a pleasure to see them working together. They're both talented, professional and good people.
