Earlier this week, Ruth Bell opened the Dior Cruise show in Los Angeles. It wasn’t exactly a surprise; though the British model hasn’t walked the runway much since the Fall/Winter 2016 season, she’s a constant at Dior: opening the label’s Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter 2017 shows, closing Spring 2017 Haute Couture, and starring in the Spring/Summer 2017 campaign shot by Brigitte Lacombe with her identical twin sister May.
Bell says she still figuring out who she is, and jokes that she hopes to be “someone who knows what they would like to be.”
