Vampire Weekend's Contra cover girl modeling photos unearthed

As you may recall, the cover of VW's recent album, Contra, was a photograph of an attractive woman from the '80s wearing a yellow polo shirt. About a month ago, the story broke that the woman, whose name is Ann Kirsten Kennis, was suing the band for $2 million because she hadn't given consent to use the photo. 


Today, Vanity Fair got its grubby little mitts on Kennis' modeling portfolio from back in the day. And the photos will shock you!

Not really. They are mostly just shots of her posing for jewelry, swimsuit and bath lotion ads. Like a lot of Vampire Weekend's lyrics, the photos offer a glimpse into white, monied, upper-class society. The very society that politely asks people like me to please leave without making a scene. The very society that informs people like me that the restrooms are for paying customers only. To hell with your society!
