Sweet sweet travels, beautiful soul

November 19, 2009

Model Daul Kim was found dead in Paris this morning, reportedly by suicide. She was only twenty. Her blog, kind of a depressing read even before this news came, is definitely an eerie series of thoughts now.

She questioned the worth of her career as a model and frequently referenced her loneliness – not bizarre or alarming concerns for a twenty year old jet-setting runway gem, but it’s still hard to believe those feelings drove her to such an extreme. I had the honor of writing a small post on behalf of the Refinery29 staff for Daul this evening. You can read it here.

“I’m usually very miserable, so I reward myself with a fur coat every year. ”

The title of this post is a comment that a fan left on her last-ever blog entry. Images from Model Couture.
