Meanwhile new face and we ephemeral publications flood the walkways and today I want to do a little tribute post as one of the great supermodels of the 90 and fortunately continues much to talk about today.
The star of this back to the past is Carolyn Murphy, U.S. model peak whose time was the late 90's. In the shadow of Naomi, Kate and Claudia, that does not prejudice the taking has been smooth and steady path to be considered today one of the iconic models par excellence.
Although he never had in his dreams of youth dedicated to fashion, it was mainly his mother who encouraged him to enroll in an academy of models in Florida, his hometown. During his early years were devoted to star in local campaigns, without much renown, but won him to take his first contact with the world of photography.
After a couple of years the agency decides to send him to Milan to continue his progress as a model. There would be a model, which went largely unnoticed until a simple accidental makeover catapulted him to the top.
Evil tongues say that he was on hand when it comes to bleach his hair for a photo shoot and it was starting to fall so they had no choice but to cut it. Carolyn Murphy In this way begin to show a platinum blonde look with short hair super flashy.
That makeover was accidental that many eyes were put into it, so much so that star and start a cover of some renown such as Elle or Marie Claire Canada Italy, in 1995, when it had just turned 20 years.
Very quickly his name was picking up weight at the same time as their looks changed at the same speed, would come to see a short mane supermorena a half red hair in just a few months. This chameleon aspect opened the doors of the gateways and soon we would share with the earliest supermodels parade in 1996.
From 1997 to 1998 would have its moment of maximum splendor on the catwalks, with countless shows at the same level as larger and covers featuring outrageous figures and advertising campaigns.
Precisely in 1997 becomes the image of Gucci, its first major contract with Angela Lindvall, seeing it later in the campaign for Dolce & Gabbana, Versace and Calvin Klein in 1998. The highlight of these two great seasons would put him starring in the Pirelli calendar that year.
In 1999, pregnant and feared by many as the anticipated end of a meteoric career becomes just the opposite. While his return would not reach the pace of work in previous years if they return to work more exclusive and therefore much better paid.
For just one example, in 2001 became the global image of Estée Lauder cosmetics company, replacing Elizabeth Hurley. This contract along with other works such as Versace campaigns becoming almost an iconic model for the brand, and Fendi with Karl Lagerfeld in 2002 (repeated in 2005), places him as one of the highest-paid models of the moment.
Another of the highlights of her comeback after her pregnancy was the leadership that began to take in publications like Sports Illustrated. And is that pregnancy will feel so good quher curves were accentuated, relatively speaking of course, and would star in the cover of the magazine in 2005.
After his return post pregnancy was flirting with footbridges, desfilaría made in 2001 for Balmain, Valentino, Versace and Yves Saint Laurent, but he gradually slowed down until 2005, the year which disappeared from the runway until latest dates, as surprisingly and against all odds appeared in the last parade of Louis Vuitton .
But his work and leadership in fashion magazines and advertising campaigns remains truly remarkable. Who had held that they say in these cases without going any further in the past 2010 and we have seen in many campaigns.
Some of these campaigns as sensuous aspect which so far had not been lavished much. You just have to keep an eye on the campaigns of Tom Ford or Cesare Paciotti to get an idea.
But in addition we have seen earlier this year in campaigns Cavalli, Gap, Iceberg ... and of course taking as a stellar image of the firm Estée Lauder Carolyn Murphy has found its most recognizable ambassador.
