“Spend five minutes at the beginning of each day remembering we all want the same thing (to be happy and be loved) and we are all connected to one another.”
– Dalai Lama
With her incredible worldwide standing at Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011, Arizona Muse has booked her first major ad campaign, and it’s an extremely coveted signing. The “rising star” is the flawless face of Yves Saint Laurent‘s Spring 2011 ad campaign.
Arizona was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in the gardens of Bled Roknine, a ’30s style villa in Marrakech. YSL’s connection to Morocco is well known as Yves bought the Majorelle botanical gardens (in Marrakech) in 1980 with his partner Pierre Barge. The gardens served as a source of inspiration to Saint Laurent, and now house an exhibition of his Morrocan-inspired pieces along with his ashes which were scattered when he died in 2008.
