NOWNESS, a must-see destination for the culturally curious, has lived in our bookmarks tab for eons. Now, the innovative hub for everything from renowned gastronomes to Norwegian craftsmen is coming to R29.
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!"
