There are many words to describe Michele Lamy – Rick Owens’ muse, wife, gypsy, eccentric, Queen of the intergalactic fashion galaxy. Whatever the word, she’s clearly an independent, marching to the beat of her own creative drum.

Another Magazine created this film for the Rick Owens furniture line. Towards the end, at 4:18, she addresses her famously stained, black fingertips.

“Who said that when you do your nails, they have to be just the size of the nails. I always do it long. It’s like the Japanese henna. It’s a little strange of course. People don’t usually ask why I do this. Perhaps they think its a disease.”

Turns out, it’s a matte, black Japanese vegetable dye used to cover grey hair.

And the line down her forehead?
She draws it on with an eye pencil every day to keep her grounded.
