… and that’s just the guy! Wonderful to see the hearts and flowers commenting the web at the moment over Isani Griffith and her recent public appearances :: being a model and almost-celeb about town is good for a start, while blue eyes and 5ft 10in probably helps too

Model Mayhem has often stolen a scoop with its open policies and wide selection, so maybe no wonder Isani is on the books :: and where better to advertise while studying philosophy and photography :: which reflects our interest as so many potential modern amazons are focussed and intelligent, as well as fun-loving style warriors

oh, by the way, did I happen to mention the Marilyn Manson connection and that Isani and MM have been seen in lots of places and at art events, and often in rather close proximity :: a surefire profile enhancer!

previous MM beau Evan Rachel Wood had two portraits painted by Manson and exhibited :: Wood is also the inspiration behind the song Heart Shaped Glasses and appeared in the song’s music video :: last month Wood stated: ‘Manson and I both decided to take some time apart so we could concentrate on work.’
