Daring to Go Gray

I've never been a fan of supermodel Kristin McMenamy.  There was always something about her androgynous eyebrow-less look that I found unappealing.  But now that she has matured to the ancient age of 45, I find her more attractive, especially because she has allowed her hair go gray.
I think that she looks great

I'm not giving up my unruly long blond locks anytime soon, but I do find premature gray hair, especially when it is this long, to be striking.
Opinions?

I love grey hair if it's that really pretty silver grey (like hers) or white. When it's more dull and yellow, not so much.

I think she looks stunning, more natural

Not loving it...I don't think it enhances her skin tone at all. I'm just not a gray fan...but I'm fortunate. My grandmother is 84 and only gray around the temples.

Pseu, yes it depends totally on the color of the gray.
TWOSP, in a world obsessed with youth I find it rather amazing that she would allow herself to go gray.
Jill, what awesome genes, you are indeed fortunate. My grandmother also went gray very late in her life but my brothers are already gray and I'm just starting to go gray.

Good grief, no! This looks like Death.

I´m not liking her hair. Spooky.

I started going grey at 28, I'm now 100 percent white - hidden under 6.0 with 15% bleach. I plan to get fat in ten years time so I don't think i can do both!

she definitely look unique, in a good way. : )

I have tried, many times, to like Kristen's looks but she always projects too much of a creepy factor for me. There was one photo in Vogue, though, with her ohair pulled back in a black band and ponytailed that I liked.

I've always liked her -- and I like eyecatching looks like this. But I think extensions are involved.

And I'll stick with getting rid of grays, thanks!
