Arizona Muse in Gucci by Mario Sorrenti for Vogue Paris February 2011
**First, if you don’t have the maturity, don’t look at the rest of the editorial. As for the feature shot, I find it gorgeous so I’m leaving it unchanged.**
Well. Arizona is certainly wearing Gucci in some fashion. Just not Gucci’s clothing collection haha. At any rate, Arizona looks spectacular. She displays nothing but confidence and strength. Moreover, she conveys an innate knowledge of her own sensuality. I love that. There is something highly attractive about a gorgeously unashamed naked woman. Unfortunately, an editorial like this may never been seen in a commerical American publication. I fear that American society has perverted nudity. Nudity has become this huge bigass deal, and the prevalent society shames a woman for reveling in her nude body. Because that would mean acknowledging a woman’s innate sexuality, which contradicts the pure chaste virgin ideology that is so popular in the United States. And God forbid that a woman can unabashedly display her body without it becoming hyper-sexualized. For make no mistake; Arizona’s photographed nudity does not mean her victimization. This is hardly a desperate bid for print work. This editorial is erotic, just a tad kinky, and very striking. Arizona Muse is a rising star; don’t be surprised if we see her take the industry by storm.
