Arizona Muse - Fashion Muse for the Masses | FashionTV’s Model of the Week
In 2008, a blonde girl with long hair was picked up by an agency as a model. However, scouts, photographers, and designers alike had seen way too many blondes before, and were more interested in something new.
Although this girl did land editorials in high-fashion magazines, such as Allure, it was far from what she had expected her modeling career to become. The blonde gave up modeling and a year later gave birth to a son, chopped off her hair, and dyed it brown; suddenly in 2010, Arizona Muse became one of the most-wanted models in the industry.
Rocking the Runway
Arizona Muse truly rose to the top during spring 2011 Fashion Week. The 22-year-old New Mexican model opened and closed the prestigious BCBG Max Azria show and also walked for Herve Leger, Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, and Narcisso Rodriguez. Miuccia Prada gave Muse the honor of opening and closing both the Prada and Miu Miu shows in Milan. In addition, she opened both the Kenzo and Rochas shows during Paris Fashion Week.
However, it was the fall of 2011 when Arizona Muse truly ruled the runways of Paris, Milan, and New York. After opening eight shows, including Dolce & Gabbana, Salvatore Ferragamo, Carolina Herrera, and Dsquared2, Muse landed the number one spot on FashionTV’s First Face countdown.

In Spring 2012, Arizona Muse was ranked #4 on FashionTV’s First Face Countdown. However, she was still a major presence on runways around the globe, opening key shows such as Fendi, Isabel Marant, Preen, Victoria Beckham, and Tory Burch. She also walked in the Diane von Furstenberg, Chloe, and Roberto Cavalli shows.
In 2011, it was nearly impossible to look through a magazine without Arizona Muse either gracing its cover or editorials. Vogue, W, and Dazed & Confused are just a few of the high-fashion magazines that featured Muse over and over again in their pages. She was also constantly photographed by some of the world’s best photographers, including Steven Meisel (for Italian Vogue) and Patrick Demarchelier (for British Vogue).
