Model in Italian Vogue

TRAVERSE CITY — Samantha Higdon grew up in the small town of East Jordan, light-years away from the world of high fashion.

But a recent photo shoot for a top fashion magazine may help land the blue-eyed brunette in modeling’s big time.

Higdon, 19, was selected to appear in this month’s issue of Italian Vogue, which features the most stylish and avant-garde fashions by the world’s top designers. The shoot was part of an “advertorial” for Fendi, an Italian luxury fashion house.

“It was one of my first jobs, so I was really happy,” said Higdon, a Los Angeles-based model and first runner-up in the 2009 Miss East Jordan Scholarship Pageant. “A lot of people say that Italian Vogue is more of a fashion guide for the public fashion industry than American Vogue is, just because American Vogue has gotten very commercialized and Italian Vogue is still the high-fashion, artsy deal.”
