...if the fans of fashion ever said, "what the fuck happened to Sibyl Buck?" ...

Born in Versailles, France, Buck started her modeling career in 1992 and has worked for Yves Saint-Laurent, Chanel, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen, and many other fashion houses. She started modelling with a conservative look with long dark hair. Soon she dyed her hair bright red and had several piercings, including her tongue and septum. Her punky/grunge appearance was picked up on by the more rebellious designers of the time although she was also popular amongst more mainstream designers. She would often change her look and had her head shaved for a time, giving her a unique androgynous look.

After quitting the modelling industry in 1998, Buck became a mother and began playing rock music in bands. She played bass and sang in Champions of Sound with Chris Traynor of Orange 9mm and Helmet, and with Sergio Vega of Quicksand. Buck currently plays bass guitar for Joseph Arthur's rock band, The Lonely Astronauts.

Sibyl Buck (born May 27, 1972) is an American musician and former fashion model.

birthday in the sun
she was a pill
with a lot of licks
i wasn't sick
wanting to heal
the music seduced
her fingers weaved
-notes that spoke
to me w/ her hips
it was more luck
ah, what the fuck
today i am here
she's sybil buck
and her skin shed
fashion was dead
french punk in nyc
revival's in my head
birthday in the sun
never had such fun
a deal forever done
= today i am one ...
