You’ve seen their faces on the runway, campaigns, and all over the internet. Now get to know the models behind the clothes in this new weekly feature.
Google “Jenny Albright” and among the usual fashion suspects (like presentations for The Elder Statesman, Kate Spade, and Rosie Assoulin), you’ll find an unlikely hit: The Lonely Island. The model had a prime cameo in the comedy troupe’s massively popular clip, “Jack Sparrow,” which racked up more than 126 million views and counting. How’s that for exposure? And with Fashion Week looming, we’ve got a feeling this is only the beginning for Alabama-raised New Yorker. Before you see her on the runway next month, get to know Albright here.
