Supermodel Carolyn Murphy brings glamour, style, and high fashion energy to the great city of Detroit. The blonde beauty shot for Elle’s September issue and wasn’t afraid to get down and dirty. The model wasn’t in a studio, a lush garden, or near the water. She shot on the rough and tough streets of Detroit, and mama looks amazing. Detroit may be known for being tough and rough but Carolyn brought out the city’s softer side. But shooting in the motor city hits close to home. Carolyn was newly appointed the women’s design director at Shinola, a Detroit-based American-made watch and goods company. Shinola works to put the unemployed back to work after the Great Recession. And if Carolyn keeps making the city look this good, Detroit will be back on its feet in no time.
