Murphy’s Law

Chic Chicagoan Amanda Murphy is quietly becoming the go to girl for top tier photographers in search of a little All-American charm. With her classic features and soulful brown eyes, Amanda harks back to an earlier period in modeling. It’s easy to imagine off-kilter beauty fitting right in during the late 90s / early 00s, back when all models were expected to have a mix of edge and elegance. It’s that combination that makes Amanda such an in demand commodity, this month alone you’ll find her face in the pages of American Vogue, Vogue Paris and on her 2nd Vogue Italia cover in a row.

  1. Such a classical face that, not to hard but striking and forward. I understand why Steven loves her so much, Murphy Law is in full affect.

  2. i would to see her with Joan Smalls, Grace Mahray, Fe Fe, Karmen Peradu, Hana Soukopova, Karlie Kloss and and a few more in like a homage to the era of the SUPERMODELS during Linda,Naomi, Christie DAYS….

  3. I guess THIS Murphy’s law sounds something like “Anything that can look great, will look great”… 😉
    Btw a really interesting, intense and actually sharp model, who as the first Vogue Italia shot reminded me wonderfully embodies the Prada FW13/14 collection.
