Part 2 of 3 [Jacquelyn Jablonski]
2. Jacquelyn Jablonski
There are certain models that you notice, but at the same time, don’t notice at all. Jacquelyn, for me, is one of those models. She was a finalist at the Ford Supermodel of the World, the year that Hyoni Kang won, and was one of the runners-up. Unlike Kendra Spears, who was scouted via Myspace, Jacquelyn was a child of Ford, waiting to be given the go-ahead to plunge straight into the business. An when she did, oh boy did she create a splash!
Her first season was quiet, and despite getting the Calvin Klein Accessories Campaign with Sean Opry, no one really noticed her. Then, S/S 2010 came and the rest is history. Despite some random runway appearances, Jacquelyn still managed to gain the eye of major casting directors, leading to her being booked for Prada, Valentino and Dolce Gabbana. Jacquelyn also managed to convert her runway bookings to editorial appearances, and ultimately advertisment campaigns.
