 Beverly Hills, 19 of July 2011 – Miu Miu flies to Los Angeles for the premiere of “Muta”, the short film directed by Argentinian director Lucrecia Martel, which is also the second chapter of The Miu Miu Women’s Tales project: A contemporary film noir and a personal reflection on the transformative power of femininity.


For this occasion, an iconic 1920s mansion on La Collina Drive was transformed by Oscar winning set designer Martin Childs. Their interior designs were inspired by the Miu Miu Autumn/Winter 2011 collection where old Hollywood from the 40’s meets European Glamour. The intention of the set design was to recreate a cinematic film noir stage which has been abandoned by its actors.

Upon entering the courtyard, guests encountered a vintage car with chauffer from the 1940 s, setting the tone for mystery and glamour. Guests were invited to mingle with characters living within the light, and intriguing shadows of the home.

During the course of the evening, a cigarette girl presented guests with the Miu Miu Noir sunglasses collection, which represented the main characters in the film. Guests and young actresses had the privilege of trying on the sophisticated 40s styles while
being photographed by a roving reporter.

an ode to Raquel

when i feel like a twelve-year-old and play with my fashion-junkie friends “which top model you’d like to be”  -if i was to reborn as a top model that is, a dream highly likely to come true one day- i always think of Raquel Zimmermann and we all agree. Raquel Zimmermann is one of THE top toppest of top models ev-ah.

Having been working for over a decade with the most important people of the fashion industry, the Brazilian top model  is still taking our breaths away. Born 28 years ago in Rio Grande do Sul, Raquel is a skateboard rider and a quitar player as well. She belongs in the great family of Viva Models Agency in Paris, measures 84-61-88 and is the dearest model of the iconic photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. 

The last three months Raquel has appeared in editorials for Vogue US, Vogue UK,Vogue Paris, W and was the cover girl of Vogue Brazil and Korean W, too. She has this magnificent talent to always transform herself, and that’s another reason why she features in five F/W 2011-12 advertising campaigns -Lanvin, Jimmy Choo, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander Wang and Juicy Couture. Furthermore, Raquel recently left the Top50 rank of models.com to enter 16th at the Top Icons list of all times.
