In a time where it becomes increasingly easy to shoot to the spotlight, we are witnessing the emergence of a new breed of stars with mass appeal and cult-like following! The Clermont Twins are those gorgeous identical 23-year old twins, with 40-inch blond locks and darkened honey skin and they are everywhere!! And we know you are probably wondering where on earth did they come from.
The self-proclaimed up-to-no-good pair; started out as reality TV stars and turned to modelling and Instagram. They shot to fame following Kanye’s endorsement when they starred as Kim Kardashian clones in Yeezy Season 6 campaign. They, however, go back slightly farther than that, specifically, to 2015 where Shannade and Shannon Clermont starred as themselves in season 14 of Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club. The show’s portrayal of bad girls perhaps doesn’t veer that much from reality as Shannon laughingly admits “…I feel like I’m always up to no good…(however) when I love someone,…I show it and express how I feel unapologetically.”
However, what is most interesting is that these girls have basically made something out of nothing! They have put together a certain persona and a unique sense of self and style that rendered them priceless online as well as offline. During New York Fashion week they were among the VIP invitees and front row staples at various shows such as Vaquera and VFILES. They even modelled for Gypsy Sport and Laquan Smith.
Their Instagram shared account has over 600,000 followers and they have become social media experts where they dole out their advice on the do’s and dont’s of social media. Despite being somewhat of rebels, Shannade admits to being very picky about what they post on their account, and they try not to read too much into things or they can simply block, “Our block list is extremely long, (yet we) never take things personally!!”
We feel these two are onto something here; so stay tuned to find out where these twins are going,, perhaps we can all lean a thing or two!
