Ruby Jean Wilson: From Brunette To Blonde, And Back
Ruby Jean Wilson made headlines back in September when she opened Marc Jacobs’ Spring show with a mattified platinum dye job that Guido Palau teased and tousled to create one of the more convincing Edie Sedgwick tributes on record. “I was bored with [it],” the 19-year-old Scottish beauty told us backstage of her formerly brunette hair, which ION Studio’s Mauricio Bermudez transformed into a rooty white blonde before Women and Supreme founder Paul Rowland hacked Wilson’s hair into a chin-grazing bob. Four months later and it appears as if Marc’s muse was ready for another change. Wilson stars alongside Janice Alida in Jacobs’ pre-fall Louis Vuitton lookbook, and at stylist extraordinaire Katie Grand’s request, she is sporting deep chocolate strands, a faded boy crop, and a very heavy set of bangs courtesy of hairstylist Malcolm Edwards and colorist Amy Fish. A bold move before the Fall shows start next month, to be sure, but hey—you don’t score consecutive Marc Jacobs-designed campaigns resting on your laurels. Thoughts on Ruby’s new look?
