Tennant rose to prominence in the modeling world in the early 1990s, attracting the attention of photographers such as Steven Meisel and Bruce Weber with her edgy, androgynous look. She has covered prestigious fashion magazines, including French, British, and Italian Vogue, as well as Harper’s Bazaar, and i-D.
She has been the face of Chanel, serving as Karl Lagerfeld’s muse for a time, and appeared in advertising campaigns for designers including Calvin Klein, Hermès, and Burberry.
Tennant married French photographer David Lasnet in her home town of Oxnam, Scotland in 1999. They have four children.
Fresh and fierce, strong and sexy; the Spring 2013 Color Collection introduces a vibrant, ‘90s-esque palette that sets the tone for a season of audaciously feminine looks. Created by Founder & Creative Director François Nars, the collection heralds spring’s arrival with shades ready to make a graphic statement.
