You can’t help but notice M. Coleman when she struts down the street. She has a statuesque quality that makes you think she may be an incognito pink-haired goddess in modern day Durango. The woman has presence.
DGO saw her from across the street and was like, SHE LOOKS NEAT! Coleman kindly didn’t think we were creepers after hurrying to catch up with her to chat about her rad style.
“I hate pink. I’ve been trying to wash this instead of scorching my hair with bleach. Because I’m naturally blonde, even if I put a deeper red over it, it’s just going to fade and turn pink again. Red doesn’t stick very well. I want to go back to blonde, get it back to normal … I turn red very easily so I don’t need anymore red.
I go for whatever is clean and comfy. I had to do laundry before I came so this is what was in the closet. Usually, I try to go simple and classic. Mostly, I wear eyeliner and mascara. That’s pretty much it.
I’m 5-11. I don’t do heels. I have some, but when I go out with most friends, I don’t add much height.
I was probably around 19 when I started to care about fashion. I was raised very religious growing up. It wasn’t until about then that I was even allowed to think that way. Simple Plan and Evanescence were the big music names at that time, so that might be where I picked up some goth-punk style. My family jokingly calls me emo sometimes. Sometimes I throw in a flair of rockabilly when I’m going to get all gussied up. I love the classic clean lines of the makeup and hair. It’s so simple and straightforward.”
