The Velvet Rose by Supermodel and Swimwear Designer Susan Holmes-McKagan

The stunning and multi-talented Susan Holmes- McKagan is one of the top supermodels of the ’90s. She recently launched her premiere novel, The Velvet Rose, which quickly became a best seller.

 This book is a terrific fast-paced summer read. It is a blend of Almost Famous meets Reality Bites and Spinal Tap. Once you start this book you won’t want to put it down.

It is an Amazon Editor Pick of best books.

The novel takes you on a roller coast ride through the early nineties. The lead character Scarlet, a painter, and high fashion model finds herself working in some of the world’s most famous fashion capitals. As her adventure continues, she meets Johnny of The Westies, an up-and-coming band on the cusp of superstardom. What ensues is an unhinged ride of a novel following the audacious lead female protagonist as she navigates her life through fame, addiction, infidelity, and all the ups and downs of dating a legendary musician from one of the biggest rock bands in history. A riveting and heartfelt journey of figuring out one’s own path and championing that aspect to finding their dreams.

 As a supermodel, Susan has appeared on covers from Vogue, Glamour, Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire, and many more.  Susan has walked the runway for Versace, Chanel, Prada, Calvin Klein, Valentino, YSL, and Armani and more.

She designs a top swimwear brand, Susan Holmes Swimwear, which has been worn by celebrities and graced the pages of many issues of Sports Illustrated, Swimwear Editions.

On top of all her career success, Susan has been married for over two decades to Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver founding member and bassist Duff McKagan.  Together they have two gorgeous adult daughters. More recently, Susan has been a Huffington Post front page writer/ and continued her modeling and touring with her husband at Guns N Roses performances across the globe.

There is never a dull day in the McKagan household.
