Arizona Muse may have been flying high in 2011 but Fashion Spot forum members are rebelling against her in 2012. Her cool short hair has morphed into uncool short hair that doesn’t work in the Fendi campaign and doesn’t work in the new Isabel Marant campaign either.
Valliaddict hit the nail on the head when he posted, “She looks like a middle aged mom whose daughter is a teen and she is desperately trying to fit in. You never look cool when you are trying to look cool. This is a shame coming from an effortlessly cool label like Isabel Marant.”
Adorefaith called the ad campaign “so dated. Isabel Marant has lost everything that once drew me in. Sad, sad, sad.”
“If the hair was styled differently the campaign would be really cute,” visualoptimism conceded.
Vogue28 seemed to be the only one who was the least bit excited about the images. “Arizona's energetic smile cancels out the old haircut," he asserted. "I'm sold on this; Inez & Vinoodh have delivered Muse's new appeal. The color scheme is brilliant and for certain these will be better in magazines, I cannot wait for more,” he posted.
I think Arizona’s hair just needs to grow out a little bit. Maybe then the stars will align and we can all be happy again.
