Model Daul Kim, 20, found dead in Paris

Korean model Daul Kim, 20, was found dead in Paris this morning, NY Mag’s The Cut reports. Her cause of death has not yet been confirmed, but sources told the magazine she had committed suicide.

Kim was a favorite among fashion followers for her gorgeous editorials (in i-D, Dazed & Confused, and British, Korean, and Japanese Vogue, among others) and witty, honest interviews.

She maintained a blog, I Like to Fork Myself, for over two years, in which she shared her favorite videos, pictures, and insights about the modeling industry. Daul’s last posting, on her blog, had the headline: say hi to forever, featuring a Jim Rivers video whom she thought was the “best track forever”.

Daul’s modeling agents at Next issued a statement: “She was a top model and a great friend to all of us at Next. Please respect her family’s privacy at this time of sadness. We will all miss her very much.”
