Ph: Miles Aldridge Styling: Bill Mullen Fashion assistants: Mauricio Quezada and Claudia Codron Hair: Rolando Beauchamp for Bumble and Bumble Makeup: Dotti for Nars Cosmetics Set design: Andrea Stanley at the Wall Group Ruby Aldridge is a hard girl to pin down.
Aldridge, who has catwalked for Prada, Gucci, Dior, Proenza Schouler and Miu Miu, starred in last years Marc by Marc Jacobs campaign and is one of the new faces of Valentino, is having a moment.
This shouldnt come as any surprise to the British, who have always had a fondness for the Aldridges: her mother is Laura Lyons, an American model and former Playboy Playmate, and her father is the famous English illustrator Alan Aldridge, whom Ruby describes as the love of her life.
Hes the best, and just the most amazing, creative, modest genius I ever met, she gushes. A part of me was intimidated as hes such an amazing photographer and is very serious when he works; hes a taskmaster! One gets the impression that slacking off isnt in her nature anyway her energy is palpable and with passport finally found (Oh my God, I was literally freaking out.), couture week beckons.
You might have seen his cartoony, psychedelic artwork in books for the Beatles and on album covers for the Rolling Stones, the Who and Elton John.
Ruby is fortunate to have inherited good looks and a creative spirit (shes currently learning to play guitar) in equal measures, as have all the Aldridge offspring.
Her siblings there are seven in total include her older half-sister, Saffron, the face of Ralph Lauren for about a decade, and her full sister, Lily, another model (yes, there are many models in this dynasty; as I said, theyre a fine-looking lot), who is a Victorias Secret Angel and recently wed the Kings of Leon frontman, Caleb Followill, in Montecito, Calif.
And then there is her half-brother, Miles (no, not a model, but he is married to one, the 1990s supermodel Kristen Mc Menamy).
Miles is a fashion photographer whose highly stylized work has appeared in Vogue Italia, Numro and GQ.
It was awesome, says Ruby of the time they spent working together on this fashion shoot.
The musician announced the happy news on Twitter with an adorable photo of the newlyweds."Mr.
The Strokes guitarist is yet another stealth celeb, who flew under the radar and got married to his girlfriend Justyna Sroka last weekend.
