The i-D Magazine #319 Summer 2012 photoshoot featuring American model Arizona Muse builds upon a classic Western concept. Although several couture fashion productions have worked with the cowgirl and cowboy motifs, this bold undertaking actually makes use of a grandiose stallion.
The American model is depicted here on horseback. Her high level of comfort with the creature is apparent, leading the animal back and forth through the desert setting. As is expected, Muse is found clad in gritty rach-ready apparel, sporting a wide-brimmed hat, an American flag and tribal jewelry. The choice of a braided hair style and light makeup works well, especially since overdone looks are seldom seen in this realm. When pieced altogether, Muse's appearance do an excellent job of conjuring up visions of rodeos, mountains and lassos.
