Carolyn In the City

February 10th, 2011 Posted by Janelle comments (22)

Carolyn Murphy heads back to her edgy roots with a streetwise shoot for i-D by Amy Troost. The Alastair McKimm styled black and white edit is heavy on tough fashion, with looks from Yohji, Givenchy and Balenciaga taking center stage; Carolyn looks more confident and beautiful than ever in these urban designs.

    Love the contrast in the photography. Third shot is beautiful!

    This would work if she’s a 19 years old rebel chick…. Miss Murphy is a mom…..

    I love her in those Rich, all American classic look.

  3. The Boy From Newcastle says:

    Carolyn looks amazing in her boyish looks compared to her more feminine ethereal appeal she has had in the past.

  4. Shelton says:

    She simply can’t keep up in edgy editorials any more. This really doesn’t work 🙁

  5. PeterModelObsessed says:


    Edgy is young, rebel and fresh….. Yes, Carolyn is more seasoned Classic…. this didn’t work.

    Carolyn is a 37 year old Mom…. this is more like Taylor Momsen look.

    Is Lindsay Wixson not available???

    I don’t really see CM in this style of images, wrong choice of model. The styling, hair, hmmm just doesn’t work.

  9. sistersinshenaningans says:

    They did an excellent makeup job. She still looks fresh

  10. Bo says:

    I have to say I agree, she is very beautiful but this just doesn’t work for her.

    Get this woman some more ad campaigns!

  11. bryan says:

    someone like daria or freja will be perfect for this.

    girls like lindsey wont be able to pull off this look.

  12. Marcus says:

    I like the juxtaposition of a classic beauty in tough mannish clothes.

  13. james says:

    i remember when Carolyn was new to the scene, this was the look she was known for edgy and tough, , not the sun-kissed classic grace kelly lookalike she morphed into later. Great to see her bringing some of the old school flavour back

  14. nick says:

  15. HannaV says:

  17. D. says:

    she looks amazing… styling is perfect

  18. Bob says:

    I love her!!

  19. kitkat says:

    agreeing with comments above–I think Carolyn pulls it off very well.

    Right now, Lindsey is too “girly” for this look…maybe when she is older

    And you know what? I think this is edgy with a very strong classic twist.

    I think she’s amazing – one of the most beautiful models of all time.

    Strong feminine spirit, but so innocent eyes… Great shot !
