Meet the New Girl: Ruby Jean Needs to Be Alone for Two Hours Every Night


17-year-old newcomer Ruby Jean kick-started her modeling career when, in 2009, she sent photos of herself to Priscilla's Model Management at the insistence of her classmates. A year later, the Scottish-born, English-raised girl flew to New York for the spring 2011 shows, where she walked for Lacoste and Karen Walker. But Jean's most recent coup was her opening slot at Yves Saint Laurent's fall 2011 show in Paris, for which Stefano Pilati booked her exclusively.
