Born in New Jersey in 1991, Jacquelyn Jablonski first started thinking about modeling in high school when a scout approached her at the café where she worked. Her mother brought her to New York City to submit pictures to modeling agencies. Ford must have loved what they saw, because they were quick to offer the 15-year-old a contract. That September Jacquelyn debuted at the Spring 2008 Brian Reyes show.
After skipping a few seasons to focus on school, Jacquelyn came back full force in 2009. She posed for the Proenza Schouler Resort collection, was photographed by Sebastian Faena for V Magazine, and scored an Italian Elle editorial. But it didn’t stop there. After landing the coveted Calvin Klein Jeans campaign, Jacquelyn had a breakout season and walked for virtually every major designer in New York, Milan, and Paris, including Thakoon, Prada, Balenciaga, Givenchy, Lanvin, and Yves Saint Laurent.
Since solidifying her status as a top newcomer, the Jersey girl has continued to dominate. She graced duel editorials in W and V Magazine, landed a Celine campaign, and in January 2010 walked Valentino and Chanel Couture.
The self-confessed chocolate lover is a fan of Entourage and counts Bruce Springsteen, M.I.A., Girl Talk, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers among her favorite musicians.
