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.

They probably didn't. Doesn't mean they shouldn't have .

I guess but, models/photo-shoots have been doing this for a long time, haven't they? To them, they're spending enough money & time, why spend more. And well, "monkey see, monkey do" comes into play with this business field. ("Ohh, look at this model. She did this! I want to wear this too!")

If it was an ad selling something or promoting something (like, ipods, medicine, birth control), posted everywhere, then I would see it as "they should have done research". But its just a dumb photo book. She's selling herself. And she so happens to be a celebrity. How famous? I don't know.

That it has been going on for a long time doesn't make it okay. Nor does copying someone else who did it. And what she sells doesn't matter much either.

Don't tell me about. Tell her then. Everyone that has a problem about it should complain to her & to her agency & the person they got for the shoot.

She looks so tasteless & crude. Its as if she's trying to offend Native Americans and set kittens on fire.
