more than a model: arizona muse
Arizona Muse, what do you stand up for? We ask the American beauty how she's using her platform to change the world.
These are times of great social change and political unrest. With designers like Karl Lagerfeld, Olivier Rousteing and Walter Van Beirendonck using their platform to shed light on what's making the front pages, fashion and its personalities can be a powerful medium to get its audience to dig a bit deeper and question the world around them. Our More Than A Model series highlights the girls who aren't content with just being pretty faces, they are using their platform and influence to focus our attention on causes that matter. First up, a woman who needs no introduction, Arizona Muse….
