Kaila Methven, popularly known as Madame Methven, is an American, celebrity fashion and lingerie designer and supermodel.
Why Is Madame Methven Famous?
Methven is famous for her audacious and sensual lingerie designs that bring out the “Dominatrix” in every woman who wears her designs.
But, she is just as famous for being a “KFC-Heiress-Turned-Lingerie-Designer” because her maternal grandfather, Stanley Methven, owned Rainbow Chicken Unlimited, a South African Company that at one time supplied 90% of KFC’s chicken.
Date Of Birth

Methven lived with her mother, Lisa Methven until she passed away after battling liver cirrhosis and committing suicide. Afterward, Methven moved to Paris to live with her estranged dad, his new wife, and their four kids. She has no biological siblings.
Her maternal grandfather, Stanley Methven, founded the company, Rainbow Chicken Unlimited, which supplied most of KFC’s chicken in the 1980s. He died in 1986 before the family sold the company in 1991.
In a recent interview with Daily Mail, she revealed:
“I spent a lot of my time traveling, going on amazing, exotic vacations; I love to explore the world, diverse and different cultures.
“I love to learn about different people and see beautiful historical sites. I’m very into tasting food, I would say that’s one of my biggest splurges, food, spas, clothing and living a comfortable luxury lifestyle
“I spend a lot of money on my shoes; I’m addicted to Christian Louboutin, ever since I interned for him.
“I have hundreds of pairs of his shoes, and that’s with me, giving some away to charity every year. I really like to try the finest and most rare foods in the world, and I spend a lot of time taking care of myself. That’s what I splurge most of my money on, my mental health, my well-being, and my physical health. And shoes.”
