Factory Girl Part Two
After wiping the drool from my chin while perusing Nordstrom's lust-worthy fall 2010 "Eye for Style" print campaign, I thought of "Edie Sedgwick." The classic "poor little rich girl," notoriously known as Andy Warhol's beautiful and troubled muse, is resurrected in the department store's multi-page spread by none other than model-of-the-moment Coca Rocha and famed artist Ruben Toledo, a longtime visionary behind many of Nordstrom's creative moves.
Repeatedly shamed by some fashion enthusiasts for her size 4 frame (I know, it's a bit disgusting), the Canadian-born Rocha plays a modern day (more sane) version of an artist's muse. She angelically pouts her lips, frolics through a Manhattan loft in Pucci, Lanvin, Celine, Balmain and more, and poses contently while showing her appreciation for being the center of attention to Toledo. And who cares, because this is the best department store shoot I've ever seen.
Bravo, Nordstrom! You done well, kid...I didn't even know it was you at first. Photos and a behind-the-scenes video below to celebrate!
