FAIR HAVEN MODEL ROCKS SPRING RUNWAYS

jacquelyn-jablonskiLess than a year out of Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High, model Jacqueline Jablonski is the “queen” of the spring fashion shows underway in New York’s Bryant Park.

So proclaims today’s New York Daily News, which reports that the drinking-straw-thin, 5-foot-9 Jablonski

walked an astounding 31 shows this past week, beating out other strutters for the most shows walked, and surpassing her record of 21 shows last season.

“I was constantly running from place to place, and I had to have my fittings and castings at night because there was no time during the day with all the shows I was doing,” she says.

The grueling schedule takes its toll, Jablonski tells the News:

“By the fifth show of the day my skin starts to burn a little, because I’m constantly wiping off the makeup from the previous show,” Jablonski says.

“And with the loads of hair spray – I just have to use a lot of conditioner and moisturizer on my face and take care of myself or else I’d be a mess.”

New Jersey Monthly magazine profiled 18-year-old Jablonski in its December issue, where it reported on her career blast-off following her graduation from R-FH last June:

Jablonski signed two years ago with Manhattan’s Ford Models—the same agency that gave the world Christie Brinkley, Carol Alt, and Stephanie Seymour—but she had to wait for school to end before committing herself to full-time work.

Jablonski’s rise to catwalk prominence was largely self-propelled. On a trip to Manhattan with her mother during her sophomore year, “we just decided to drop off some pictures at some agencies. Then one day I got the call and got signed. That was it!” she says.

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
