STYLELIKEU

A trailor….

…….want to see more? come on in…!

its actually funny because i had absolutely no idea i was supposed to be shooting something in my house that day… so i heard the buzzer and was like who could that be, for real i have no idea. Elisa and Lily lugged all their camera equipment up 4 floors, i open the door in boxer shorts im OBVIOUSLY in my pajamas and had no idea what was going on. oh my apartment you ask? tip top messy shape. i thought its was going to be a disaster. but with patience and teamwork with the dishes…. it was time to be interviewed about my style, i thought. but it ended up being a lot more about that. and i needed to brush my hair, i forgot.

“I express my style in how I actually feel.” Cory Kennedy

From the vulnerability with which she tells her story of struggle and triumph to her need to wear flats with an evening gown, Cory Kennedy is expressing herself as definitely as ever now that it has been over a year of sobriety since what she calls her “active party girl” days. Cory’s struggle and triumph in overcoming addiction finds her more professional and more of a woman. She is doing things like sitting up straight, wearing a clutch and a 50′s shell top in place of a tee shirt with jeans, however, she still always lets her “kid-self” peek through, like when she pairs thick jockey socks with a ladylike shoe.

Fame came unexpectedly for Cory when she was interning for Mark Hunter, whose website, “The Cobrasnake,” blew up when he started to photograph the youth culture in LA. Cory, whose appeal was as much about her unique sartorial expression as it was her non-cookie-cutter beauty, got swept up in the frenzy of some serious “IT Girl” attention at a young age, which was a huge challenge for her propensity towards introversion. The demands, including fashion magazine covers, ultimately led Cory towards too much drinking and eventually a life-defining wake up call: success in the fast lane had become a slippery slope into alcoholism. “In the end you are alone,” Cory reflects, and she felt it big time when she checked herself, solo, into Bellevue.

Coping with abstention in a world of immense social pressure we find Cory more present and thus, poised to be back into her life of modeling and DJing from a place of honesty and true strength. She is at peace with her modesty and humbled by the false illusions of popularity having gotten the better of her. Cory resonates a demure and confident edge in a classic black dress with Nike sneakers, a prim blouse and preppy tassel loafers with Obesity and Speed’s signature grommet torn shorts. When she wakes up from her occasional nightmares of the past, Cory says she is so relieved that it was only a dream and is optimistic that now she is in the right place in her life.

    Cory, I’ve watched you’re style progress and remember you in the early L.A. Years….Shocked we never crossed paths in L.A. Cuz we know a lot of the same people.
    Keep it up with your sobriety! In the industry temptation is EVERYWHERE and it takes a tough woman To face those problems head on and tackle them.
    I’ve been clean for almost 200 Days on February 22 from a severe heroin addiction.
    YOU ARE inspiring, I’m proud of you & I’m sure like I do from time to time you think “What’s one drink, or one shot!”
    But moving forward and seeing the positivity that sobriety brings out in you is WELL WORTH the hard work, and I know it’s hard work 🙂
    But, YOU CAN CONQUER ANYTHING!
    You’ve made a name for yourself since the young crazy daze in L.A.
    Your future is BRIGHT, I have NO REGRETS because I know the issues we face and conquer just make us into STRONGER MORE AMAZING PEOPLE after the fact 🙂
    Just wanted to WISH YOU WELL, STAY OPTIMISTIC, KEEP DOING YOUR THING & STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF ; )
