Supermodel Carolyn Murphy covers the September 2019 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Australia, styled by Naomi Smith in Bottega Veneta, Dries Van Noten, Prada, Versace and more. Darren McDonald captures the ‘90s super on location in New York for the magazine’s Icons issue.
Murphy is quick to add her vocal support to the #MeToo movement, but seeks to expand its wings.
"The whole mental experience of it can be really unhealthy," she tells BAZAAR, but is quick to clarify that model mistreatment isn't a simple male-female issue. "You have people in the industry who abuse their power from all sides. It's not just males trying to coerce young women into bed; there are so many other layers of abuse. Even female editors are making girls feel terrible about themselves, there are agents who judge you ... The #MeToo movement has opened our eyes to an unfortunate part of the industry that needed to be exposed, but there's a lot more there."
