Arizona Is the Place to Be, According to It Girls, Celebrities, and Scions

Proenza Schouler knew it had its finger on the pulse when it named one of its newest fragrances after Arizona and threw a launch event for the perfume in the arid state at the beginning of November. But the creative directors of the New York–based label and the It girls currently on a trip in the southwest are not the only ones to realize that Arizona is the place to be; plenty of celebrities like Kendall Jenner and scions like Patrick Schwarzenegger have known for a long time that the Arizona desert is a hot spot for a chic vacation. There’s a reason Lady Gaga’s A Star Is Born character begins one of the film’s most beautiful ballads with a lyric about “that Arizona sky,” and with that golden-hour light, who could refuse to see the beauty in the influencer’s destination du jour? The desert is having a moment, and the chicest It girls are taking advantage of it right now. Try not to feel too much envy looking at these stylish Arizona desert vacation photos—let them inspire you for your next trip instead.
