She is famous for her unconventional, androgynous gender identity.

Her modelling career mainly spanned the years 1985 to 1998, when she worked for many of the world's top designers and international fashion houses (such as Chanel, Valentino and Versace).

She has also worked with many of the top fashion photographers, including Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon, Steven MeiselJuergen Teller, and Karl Lagerfeld.

Steven Meisel cited McMenamy as one of his favourite models of the 1990s, along with Stella Tennant and Karen Elson.

In 1994, she also modeled in a famous Gianni Versace advertising campaign featuring Nadja Auermann and Elton John, photographed by Richard Avedon.

In 1997, McMenamy, then five months pregnant, married the British photographer Miles Aldridge, a brother of the fashion model Saffron Aldridge. Their first child was born four months later. She has a daughter, Lily (born 1995) from a prior relationship.
