A Few Fab Words With Ralph Lauren Model Ubah Hassan

Not too long ago I told you about Ralph Lauren model Ubah Hassan, but how about some more? The 21-year-old was discovered in Canada at the age of 17 and shortly thereafter signed on with Click Model Management. Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani cast her in the magazine's first-ever black issue in 2008, then Mr. Lauren handpicked her to be his Spring '09 face. Lucky girl. I recently caught up with the Somalian beauty about her favorite designers, the modeling industry, and personal style.


Who is your favorite designer right now
Ralph Lauren.

What are three words that describe your personal style?
Daytime: comfortable and relaxed. Evening: elegant and sexy.

What is one destination you still need a stamp for on your passport?
Paris.

What is the best and worst thing about modeling?
Best thing is meeting people from all over the world and learning their cultures. Worst thing is working after the redeye or shooting abroad with jet lag.

What are some highlights of working on the Ralph Lauren campaign?
Working with such an amazing team of such lovely and talented people; seeing all the beautiful images that are now appearing in the magazines; being recognized as the image for such an incredible American designer.

Any upcoming projects?
My lips are sealed.
