Who is Stella Tennant?
Stella Tennant (17 December 1970 – 22 December 2020) was a Scottish model. The daughter of The Hon. Tobias William Tennant, son of the 2nd Baron Glenconner, and Lady Emma Cavendish, Tennant was born in Scotland and attended St Leonards School in St Andrews. She was a grandchild of Andrew Cavendish, 11th Duke of Devonshire and The Hon. Deborah Mitford, one of the Mitford sisters.
It is revealed by the people that she attracted the attention of photographers such as Steven Meisel and Bruce Weber and soon achieved success as a fashion model, posing for magazines such as French, British and Italian Vogue as well as Harper's Bazaar and Numero.
Stella Tennant's Career
Tennant studied sculpture at Winchester School of Art. In 1993, she sent photographs of herself to a high fashion magazine, and a friend introduced her to fashion writer Plum Sykes. She had recently had her nasal septum pierced, which was an unusual look for models at the time, and Sykes was taken aback.
Meisel then used her on the cover of Italian Vogue. Soon after, Karl Lagerfeld announced Tennant as the new face of Chanel, with an exclusive contract.
