Wearing the Pants

Everyone's favourite blonde Carolyn Murphy steps out in the season's sleekest pants for American Vogue's May 2013 issue. Photographer Patrick Demarchelier puts Murphy through her paces as she poses in a series of studio and outdoor shots. Discovered at age fifteen when her mother enrolled her in a modelling academy, Murphy has over the course of two decades in the industry run the full modelling gamut from appearances on the covers of the American, French, Italian, and British Vogue, Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit issue, to modelling gigs as host of Project Runway, and as a spokesperson for cosmetics giant Estée Lauder. At age thirty-nine, Murphy remains as fresh faced and relevant as ever appearing in four out of five issues of American Vogue in 2013 alone and closing for Calvin Klein at the recent Fall/Winter 2013 collections. Fashion's ongoing fascination with nineties supers in the ilk of Murphy, Amber Valetta, Stella Tenant, Shalom Harlow, and Karen Elson, mirrors the public's desire to see women whose age and life experience lend an added dimension of interest and relatability to fashion magazine's all too oft youth-obsessed pages.
