Arizona Muse is an American fashion model born in Tucson, Arizona and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Muse began modeling as a teenager but her career didn’t begin until after she had her son.
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 in Brooklyn, NY. In Spring 2012, Arizona was named as Estee Lauder’s newest face.
Muse has appeared in editorials in French, American, Chinese, British, Korean, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian and Italian Vogue, W, V, Numéro and Dazed & Confused. 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.”.
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).
