Grimes Models Sculptural Dresses, Shows Off Dark Hair In Iris Van Herpen's New Campaign

She might pose for Hedi Slimane and go ladylike for T magazine, but let's be real: glimpses of Grimes doing the high fashion thing just don't come around as often as we'd like. But while Claire Boucher is (understandably) more focused on touring and recording new music these days, she HAS been taking a brief break recently to squeeze in some modeling. Wait..what?! Just a few days ago the Canadian recording artist tweeted, "i did some 'modelling' (i mean, it's me, so its sketchy lol) for Iris Van Herpen's new RTW :) ." First of all, Grimes, we love your humility. SHE might call her modeling skills "sketchy," but if you ask us, this girl pulls off Iris Van Herpen's collection of futuristic dresses, http://www.cheapfashionpromdresses.com/ leather jackets, and geometric details better than pretty much ANYONE could.
Set to a stark backdrop of bridges, chain fences, and the New York City skyline, the campaign showcases Dutch designer Van Herpen's debut Ready-to-Wear line. While the 28-year-old rising fashion star is mostly known for haute couture, she's chosen Grimes as the ideal muse for her debut RTW collection. The admiration between the two ingenues is clearly mutual, since Grimes also rocked Van Herpen's couture clothing in a recent issue of Dazed & Confused. Along with these never-before-seen pieces, Grimes shows off another something unexpected in the campaign...her new dark hair.
