A Puerto Rican-Irish American Artist, Kristin de la Renta (born Kristin aka Kris Renta), moved to South Florida in 2005 with big dreams of a music career. As a born musically centered-military brat from Tampa, Fl, it was geographically a short distance from her family’s roots as musicians and dancers, however a quantum leap toward what she dreamed of as a young girl. Shortly after and thanks to the social networking site Myspace, a South Beach fashion photographer discovered and began shooting her. It was through him she discovered her romance with the camera as both a muse and Make up Artist. A talent both in front of and behind the lens, her experience in The Industry has blossomed and continues so, morphing into a dynamic spectrum that now includes roles in network television, music videos, ad campaigns, blogging and the healing arts.
As a Music (Voice) major in high school and college and an avid fashion addict (thanks to her cameo as a Fashion Design Major, through the International Academy of Design & Technology), Kristin naturally began to integrate her visual edge and “Technohippy” spiritual essence with the Pop influences of Madonna, Prince, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and the like. “Expression comes in infinite forms. Hair is art, my body: the canvas and I get bored!” she says, as her look never stays the same for very long.
She's currently serves as an in-house model for Vidal Sassoon and has done so for salons including, Tony & Guy, Salon Sessions (America’s Next Top Model), The David K Space and many others. Alongside features in Short Hair Gallery Magazine, Salon Sessions (America’s Next Top Model) video training tutorials and various Beauty tradeshows and commercials, De la Renta can also be seen in numerous music videos for artists including Diddy Dirty Money, Adelita's Way, B.o.B, Young Jeezy, Alexandra Burke, Bobby Valentino and Timbaland.
Kristin lives part-time in both New York City and Los Angeles, while remaining true to her roots in her homebase, Miami Beach, FL, where she continues to expand her craft along her path in TV/Film and the healing arts.
