Model

Mica Arganaraz

WITH HER DARK CURLY HAIR, HER SULTRY POUT AND BOYISH STYLE, MICA ARGANARAZ STANDS OUT AS THE COOLEST AMONGST THE CURRENT WAVE OF HOT-SHOT MODELS.

Quoting Bob Dylan lyrics for her New Years resolution, citing the brightly burning 80’s model Gia Carangi as her beauty idol and describing herself as an artist by profession on her facebook page, it is clear that Mica is not like the rest.

EFFORTLESS BEAUTY

While attending film school in her native Buenos Aires, Mica changed the trajectory of her life’s path in the effortless and self-confident way that has become synonymous for her particular brand of “smoky sensuality” as Prada put it, by nonchalantly sending a Polaroid of herself to a local modelling agency with undulating effect. Signed to Viva and DNA models within a few weeks, Mica has been on a steady upwards spiral since that moment, taking her out of South America and onto centre stage of the worldwide fashion industry. It seems fitting that Mica has now chosen Paris as a new home for herself – with her bohemian style, interest in art and love of music let alone her burgeoning career as a model making her the perfect Parisian-of-choice.

INDIVIDUAL STYLE

With 51k followers on Instagram and a continuous stream of street photographers immortalising her appealing tomboy style as she jets in and out of fashion calls, Mica is clearly in the process of sculpting a very particular niche for herself in fashion. Standing out as an individual character in a world in which beauty often seems interchangeable, Mica has gathered quite a fan-base in simply being herself. Following her first major season for SS15, Mica bagged an endless string of major campaigns including Chanel, H&M, Bottega Veneta, Hugo Boss, Dior and Zara whilst also being the first model since Sasha Pivovarova to star solo in a Prada campaign. With everybody wanting to infuse their brand aesthetic with Mica’s particular style of casual beauty, it is no surprise that her diary for the coming year is full to the brim.

DOWN-TIME

When Mica isn’t busy working, she enjoys a relaxed and non-regimented life-style. Record shopping with her boyfriend, lounging in her flat playing guitar, working on her art-projects and swimming are just a few of her favorite activities. In a true reflection of the joie-de-vivre approach to her life, it seems fitting that Mica, with her particular brand of effortless rock-and-roll cool, turns to Dylan, the master of cool himself, to express her life’s motto: "You're going to die. You're going to be dead. It could be 20 years; it could be tomorrow, anytime. So am I. I mean, we're just going to be gone. The world's going to go on without us. All right now. You do your job in the face of that, and how seriously you take yourself you decide for yourself." Bob Dylan (I couldn't say it better).

Short Facts

Distinctiveness

With her endless 5’10’’ statue, her sense of individuality and her playful tomboy style, Mica stands out as a strong and confident beauty.
