biography

Nationality: United Kingdom
Stella Tennant was born in Scotland to Scottish nobility (her mother is Lady Emma Cavendish and grandmother the Duchess of Devonshire). Her unconventional look and attitude helped get her noticed as she was photographed by Steven Meisel in a feature, "Anglo-Saxon Attitudes" for British Vogue. She would soon be photographed by Meisel again as the face of Versace. She achieved success as the face of Chanel and appeared on magazines such as Italian Vogue, W, L’Officiel, Harper's Bazaar, and British Vogue before announcing her retirement from modeling in 1998. Though she returned to the fashion world shortly after to shoot the Burberry campaign and walk in several runway shows, she has limited her recent appearances. She has four children with husband David Lasnet and continues to live in Scotland with her family.
