Remember Her Name – Arizona Muse

Arizona Muse has managed to kill two birds with one stone – snagging a solo editorial for the February issue of American Vogue, and having it photographed by Peter Lindbergh. Lindbergh’s shots in American Vogue thus far have mostly featured established names like Daria Werbowy and Natalia Vodianova. Aside from the solo feature, Muse was also profiled by writer Emily Holt, who wax lyrical of Muse “taking the mantle as the new face of American fashion.”

Interestingly, Muse is not really a newbie. She started her modeling career by signing with Next L.A. in 2008, before working in smaller markets like Sydney, and then taking a break to give birth to her child. The Spring/Summer 2011 show season proved to be Muse’s goldmine, where Russell Marsh casted her in the BCBG Max Azria show in New York, before the big Prada show in Milan.

Following the show season, Muse was booked for the Prada campaign, alongside veteran model Mariacarla Boscono and fellow newbie Zuzana Bijoch. Muse was also shot for the Yves St. Laurent campaign by photographic duo Inez & Vinoodh, and this is considered a major coup as past YSL campaigns have only featured supermodels like Christy Turlington and Claudia Schiffer.

Aside from scoring the solo editorial in the February issue of American Vogue, Muse can also be seen in solo editorials in several other editions of Vogue. Mario Sorrenti shot Muse for French Vogue, Josh Olins for British Vogue, and Camilla Akrans for Chinese Vogue. Could this be the dawn of a new supermodel in the making? We sure do hope so.
