This past March, Amanda Murphy (radiology tech, part-time top model) opened and closed Prada's fall/winter 2013 show as an exclusive. Since then she has been garnering a steady buzz which erupted these past few weeks with 1) the cover of Italian Vogue, 2) a Prada campaign, and 3) an editorial in American Vogue. While these achievements are seriously impressive for a relative newcomer, it gave us a feeling of deja vu. Not only was Amanda donning Prada on each occasion, it was the same look every time.
The opening look of Prada's fall show seems to be attached to Murphy like a shadow. If this doesn't give you insight into the studied forethought of fashion imagery, we're not sure what will. The hair and make-up (Guido Palau and Pat McGrath handled both for the Prada show, campaign, and Italian Vogue cover, after all) and meticulous styling of the look (exposed shoulder, unbuttoned sweater, overall deliberately dishevelled) are all the exact same.
