Girl Crush: Raquel Zimmerman

My current favorite model, maybe of all time, is Raquel Zimmerman. I get excited about any ad or editorial she’s in. I don’t know what it is. Or maybe it’s so many things.

Raquel Zimmermann walks the runway in the Bottega Veneta show during Milan Fashion Week Womenswear Autumn/Winter 2009.

Seriously, roll through these photos and tell me you’re not impressed. Beautiful face and a body that can tell a story. This a great model makes.

While I’m not the biggest fan of the 80s revival in fashion, Raquel to me evokes the ideal woman of that era. A femme fatale with legs for days, cheekbones to cut glass, and a strength undiluted by the traditional coquetry of femininity. Here Woman roars, adapts, and kicks ass.

I love these images taken by , Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin for Jean Paul Gaultier.

Seriously though, she’s got the ability to float between hard and soft, and I find it utterly charming.

From Vogue Paris, Zimmermann styled by Carine Roitfeld and photographed by Mario Testino.

Check her out in this month’s Vogue.

And blondes don’t even normally do it for me.

But this one does.
