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.
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.
Seriously though, she’s got the ability to float between hard and soft, and I find it utterly charming.
Check her out in this month’s Vogue.
And blondes don’t even normally do it for me.
But this one does.
