    I saw this girl in a German magazine and looked her up.
    I think she seems cool and interesting, and that she's incredibly pretty, but I'm also kind of confused where the hell she came from... Is she a model? Is she signed? There's nothing about her on wikipedia or imdb and I keep seeing pictures of her sitting at fashion shows..
    Either way, I've accidentally fallen in love with her while scouring the internet to find out who/what she is. :p
    I'm also slightly confused, as in some photos she's quite skinny, and in others (which I think are less recent?) she looks much bigger. Maybe she's only started modeling recently? :confused:
    Does anyone know anything about her?

    Good find...She's cute and I like her style. I mean, she's not high fashion material in my opinion, but I do think she's quite adorable with the dyed hair & interesting fashion choices.;) She'll work well for simple catalogs--but-- I feel like if she dyed her hair a darker color, she would look more high fashion *Shrugs* --I do like her, though.

    I agree. With a more professional hair color she would be STUNNING and defintely more serious model material. I think she has the skin tone to pull of any hair color, natural or... otherwise. :p
    That said, the fact that she sticks with the fun hair colors despite having more career potential without them only makes me love her more. I respect anyone who stays true to themselves, and her hair seems to be a strong reflection of her quirky personality and playful, lighthearted attitude. :kiss:

    She was in a relationship with Wilson Gonzales Ochsenknecht (he befriended me some time ago on German StudiVZ). They kinda went to run a fashion business together, but he didn't help her much in the end ;))

    She seemed very ambitious and alternative ;)

    She crossed my view, because of her figure, but I didn't like her outfits that much...

    A friend of mine had a shooting together with her for Jette Joop.
    Can't stand Bonnie Strange. She is annoying and tries too hard.

    She used to be a Model and even worked in Paris:) She said in a german interview that she struggled with anorexia back then and even today, she has problems looking in the mirror. Now she works as a photographer, model and she has her own clothing line. Many people say that she only got famous because of her former boyfriend(wilson gonzales).
    I personaly find her very entertaining:) She posts many things on facebook, I love many of her pictures!

    Her instagram is a great source for thinspo, but I do definitely see what you guys mean about her needing a lot of attention. :rolleyes: I can't browse there for too long before her compliment whoring gets to me. Also, she posts a LOT of pictures about food, which is something that irritates me about instagram in general, but it seems extra calculated considering her self-alleged history with anorexia. Like she's posting the junk food pictures specifically to make a point of how skinny (but not anorexic) she is?
    Shrug.

    I love that she has the guts to do fun and interesting things with her hair. She looks like a girl straight out of a Lichtenstein painting!

    I agree with you all though, she doesn't seem like she'd be quite right for runway fashion etc. But she's still quite pretty and has a decent body.

    Here is a clip where she discusses the dieting life of a Paris fashion model:
    http://www.prosieben.de/stars/video/clip/1913511-bonnie-strange-packt-ueber-modelwelt-aus-1.3325869/
    Sorry, it's in German. I can't translate word-for-word, but she basically says that she worked in Paris for a few years abd was totally turned off by the attitude towards food and body image. She was scolded for having orange juice in her bag and told that she could only drink water. She says 80% of the girls would just eat a rice cracker or salad without dressing for every meal, and she found the mentality sickening especially when so many girls were still teenagers and still have normal baby fat. She also says that, ever since working in Paris, if she gains or looses weight she doesn't see the difference at all in the mirror, and only notices when someone takes a photo of her, because her perception of her own body is still completely distorted, which she hopes will get better eventually.
    She also mentions models she knows who are thinner than her and have doctors come to their houses to give blood tests and figure out how to lose even more.

    Somehow her voice is not what I expected. Maybe because she looks so extroverted in her pictures, it's a nice surprise that her voice is so low-key. :shy: I like her.
