Arizona Muse is an American fashion model born on September 18, 1988 in Tucson, Arizona to an English mother and American father and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The fashion world just can’t get enough of Arizona Muse, her inch thick brows and gamine presence. Since reinventing herself with that oft-imitated signature bob, Ms. Muse has scooped up every campaign under the sun including superstar signifiers like YSL, Chloe, Fendi and Vuitton. Throw in a few well-placed covers for the likes of i-D, Dazed & Confused, Self Service and every Vogue under the sun and you have the makings of a model moment. (by models.com)
Muse started her career as a fashion model in 2008 as a long-haired blonde. However, she received little attention from the fashion world until 2010 when she returned to modeling as a brunette with jaw-length hair after giving birth to her son, when she became the face of Next in their 2011 and 2012 campaigns.
Her sudden rise to success has been the feature of an article in American Vogue and had the March 2011 issue of Dazed & Confused dedicated to her. Vogue editor Anna Wintour has praised her, stating in the February 2011 issue: "When I look at Arizona, I see shadows of Linda Evangelista and Natalia Vodianova, but most of all I see her, a gorgeous, smart, grown-up. And how could anyone resist someone with that name?".
As of September 2012 Muse is ranked 3rd on the Top 50 Models Women List by models.com.
Muse has appeared on the cover of Vogue Italia (shot by Steven Meisel) and Numéro (shot by Karl Lagerfeld), both times alongside Freja Beha Erichsen, and Dazed & Confused. She has recently appeared on the November 2011 Cover of Vogue Australia (shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin).
Breakout season was September 2010 as a show exclusive for Prada. 2011 saw Arizona take off as one of the top modeling success stories of the year with multiple covers and campaigns. Arizona lives with her son Nikko (born in 2009) in Brooklyn, NY. In Spring 2012, Arizona was named as Estee Lauder's newest face.
She appeared in campaigns for Next, Shiatzy Chen, Louis Vuitton, David Yurman, Jil Sander, Alberta Ferretti, Chloe, Prada, Isabel Marant, Fendi and Yves Saint Laurent. And she's only 24 - impressive, huh?
