Oh no: Model Mizuhara Kiko reveals teaser photos from her photobook “Girl”



On March 30th, a couple of sample shots of model Mizuhara Kiko’s upcoming photobook, “Girl“, have been released to the public.

Aside from being a current exclusive model for the fashion magazine ‘MAQUIA‘, Mizuhara also made her debut as an actress in the 2010 movie “Norwegian Wood“. This year will be appearing in the upcoming movie “Helter Skelter” (July 14th), directed by famed photographer Ninagawa Mika, who also took the pictures for this photobook.

In this photobook, Ninagawa aims to portray the cuteness, explosive energy, delicacy and thirst for adventure of Mizuhara, a young girl who’s on the verge of becoming an adult, through various and colorful expressions.

Mizuhara revealed her trust in Ninagawa as she commented, “I love the dreamy and poisonous world Ninagawa creates with her pictures.”

Ninagawa also seemed to share the same liking for the model, stating, “Mizuhara is my muse. Especially, the current Mizuhara possesses such a dreamlike beauty.”

From the semi-nude cover of the photobook to the various bikini pictures at the sea, all of the shots look very natural thanks to Mizuhara’s trust in Ninagawa. Can you resist her charm?

“Girl” will be released on April 20th.

I love you Kiko...but the cultural appropriation. Not to mention that the headdress she's wearing is for men and not women. Disappointed.

Ah, and here we have another non-native girl half naked in a war bonnet. I keep seeing these. I know a lot of people won't see the problem, but I honestly think people should think twice before making gimmicks out of others' cultures. And if it's not your culture, is it really your place to call out someone who gets offended? I just don't get this kind of shoot.
