Amanda Murphy “made an ‘oops’ not long ago,” she tells us, grinning. She borrowed her boyfriend’s Prada sunglasses for a motorcycle ride and “dropped them because it was so windy. I said, ‘Well, I guess I can ask Miuccia for another pair,’ then I was like, ‘Did I really just say that?’ I know her. That’s a crazy feeling.”

That Murphy “knows” the Italian fashion designer is an understatement. The IMG model opened and closed Prada’s fall 2013 show as an exclusive, and booked the house’s pre-fall campaign. And her success last season wasn’t limited to Milan–she walked exclusively for Proenza Schouler in New York and added another nine names to her client roster in Paris, including Christian Dior, Chanel, Lanvin, Hermès, and Stella McCartney.


Since the end of fashion month, Murphy has appeared in editorials for Dazed & Confused, W, and Interview; she returned to the runway for J.W. Anderson’s Versus debut; and she posed for Oscar de la Renta’s resort 2014 look book.

At 26 years old, the Orland Park, Illinois native isn’t fazed by her recent ascent to industry fame. “Everything happens for a reason, so it’s just my turn,” she explains. Besides, Murphy is an accomplished “slashie”–not a model-slash-actress or a model-slash-musician, but a model-slash-radiology-technician. “I had work here [in Manhattan] on Friday, and Friday night, I flew home to work at the clinic on Saturday, and then Saturday after the clinic, I had to run to the airport to work here Sunday,” she says. “That’s the first and only time I’ve had a conflict. You have to spend money to make money and I’m at a growing point, so I’m okay with doing it.”

Murphy also discussed playing with Sasha Pivovarova’s baby backstage, the kindness of Alber Elbaz, and horseback riding.

The daughter of a nurse, Amanda Murphy knew she wanted to be in the medical business from an early age, and trained as a radiology tech before getting into modelling. For the American model, who was born in Chicago in 1986, having one however didn’t mean getting rid of the other, and to this day she still balances both careers – and a horse on the side. Since her big debut on the fashion scene in 2009, Amanda has worked almost exclusively for Prada with the addition of just a few other houses. She fronted the i-D Fall 2013 cover.
