Estee Lauder's 'Modern Muse' Fragrance Campaign Star Arizona Muse On Taking Acting Classes And Her Top Make-Up Tips

14 September 2013 by


Arizona Muse is one of the fashion world's most in demand faces, so it's not wonder she was chosen as the star of Estee Lauder's 'Modern Muse' fragrance earlier this year. Well perhaps her name had a little something to do with it too! With a chic bob haircut that easily rivals Anna Wintour and Alexa Chung's famous dos, the mum-of-one has appeared on the covers of glossy magazines from Vogue Italia to Dazed & Confused. As part of our Fashion Week 360 New York coverage we bagged a Q&A with the super following her 'Modern Muse' launch party in the Big Apple. The event, which took place at the end of NYFW saw Arizona host a muse-themed soiree at The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum attended by famous faces from the spheres of art, design, media, and film, as well as Muse's model pals from Liu Wen to Joan Smalls. Here's what the Estee Lauder campaign girl told Grazia...

Grazia Daily: Who is your Modern Muse?

Arizona Muse: My muse is my mother and she came to the party with me. Actresses are muses to me too.

Grazia Daily: What are your top make-up tips? 

Arizona Muse: I mix Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair with my foundation. It feels so good. I like putting lipstick on my finger and patting it on my lips – it still gives color but not too much. And I love using a brown eyeliner and smudging it along my bottom lashes.

Grazia Daily: What’s the best and worst thing about New York Fashion Week?

Arizona Muse: I didn't actually walk in the New York shows this season. I was in NYC because of the Modern Muse party.

Grazia Daily: Are you going to be walking any shows over Fashion Month?

Arizona Muse: I haven’t confirmed any shows. Let’s see what happens over the next few weeks.

Grazia Daily: What's next in the world of Arizona?

Arizona Muse: I want to act. It’s so much fun. I feel like I’ve learnt so much in modeling but with acting you are playing a different role. I’m really inspired by new things and I love bringing more inspiration into my life. What’s next? Well, I’m currently taking acting classes…
