Fresh-faced Kiko Mizuhara lets loose to the '50s doo-wop rock’n’roll of Danny & the Juniors' “At the Hop” in this playful short by George Harvey. “I had developed these crazy concepts for the shoot that went out the window as soon as I realized nothing could be more interesting than letting Kiko be herself,” says the London-based filmmaker and i-D contributor. A star of the recent film adaption of Haruki Murakami’s Norwegian Wood, this year the American-born, Japanese-raised model, actress and muse has collaborated with Opening Ceremony, Olympia Le-Tan, and 3.1 Phillip Lim.
What is your biggest fashion inspiration?
Kiko Mizuhara: "I’m often inspired by kids, so I would say ‘street.’ They dress purely with their own instincts, which is always cool."
What is the story behind your recent Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears costumes?
KM: "Britney was for my birthday party because I have loved her for a long time, and Miley was for Halloween! I dressed up like Madonna last year for Halloween, so maybe it will be another pop icon next year. I remember she performed and sang 'Vogue' while dressed up as Marie Antoinette in the '90s, so that might be a good idea!"
Who is the first person you would thank in your Oscar speech, and why?
KM: "There are too many people to name!"
