Arizona Muse Yves Saint Laurent
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.

Marc Jacobs Runway NYFW
It’s never just one reference with Marc Jacobs. Last night, his collection touched on ’70s glam, Yves Saint Laurent circa the Morocco era, Halston‘s brand of Studio 54 decadence with a modern twist, and colorful Missoni knits. That is what you call New York Fashion Week. It was a divine disco with accessories galore. The cool factor was high on a copper lamé blazer with short pants that I am now lusting after. Colors were bright, and many ensembles were adorned with matching fabric orchids – a refreshing tropical breeze needed in this season of stark white minimalism. View Post
