Model of the moment Ruth Bell is the new face of Saint Laurent’s Cruise 2016 collection, captured by Hedi Slimane. Bell has been on the scenes since 2013, with a few solid editorial pieces from Interview Russia and Wonderland Magazine. But it wasn’t until she buzzed her golden locks this season for the Alexander McQueen ad campaign that started her rise.

This season Bell has become a runway sensation, she has opened for Max Mara, and has walked for top designers such as Versus, Versace, Gucci, Emillo Pucci, and Blumarine so far. Off the runway Love Magazine, Vogue Paris, and Dazed & Confused have also embraced her and her buzz cut.

And so has Slimane for his Cruise Saint Laurent 2016 campaign lensing the new muse in his typical bold and chic rock style.
