NEW YORK — Lida Fox recently went from black hair to white hair and by the time I sat down with her it was a bit of both. “Basically it is just one extreme to the other. The mood might be slightly different, but it’s pretty much the same vibe.” The continuity Lida has maintained alternating between these hair colors is remarkable, almost even more Lida than Lida. The ability to adapt to whatever role she is asked to assume is something Lida attributes to her years and years of training in dance. This talent of Lida’s has served her in good stead in working with brands such as Saint Laurent and Tom Ford as well as extraordinary figures such as Carine Roitfeld. “I love working with Carine,” says Lida. “I’ve been in quite a few issues of her magazine [CR Fashion Book] and working on the dance issue was especially amazing.” Away from the modeling and dance, Lida has a growing interest in film photography as evidenced in a series of 35mm photos she recently shot using a disposable camera and of which she posted digital versions to Instagram. The grittiness of film, not to mention the portability of disposable cameras are some of what Lida finds appealing about the medium, one which she vows to further explore. For now, though Lida continues to enjoy modeling and all that it brings, whether with white hair, black hair, or something sublimely in between.
