"And she pays her bills doing print work, as a model, and, you know, she’s lucky to be able to do that—even though she fuckin’ hates the business, we both hate it," said Michael Pitt of his girlfriend, Jamie Bochert, in The Observer this summer. But if she's really just doing it to pay the bills, she must have some serious bills. She landed the cover of Italian Vogue in September, and stars in the new Marc Jacobs ads debuting in this month's magazines and this morning, WWD published the first look at her Lanvin shoot. We don't really care why Jamie keeps modeling (though it's annoying to bitch about an industry that loves you) if her ads consistently wow. They're action shots, with gorgeous clothes; Steven Meisel captured her racing through a New York hallway and Alber said, “She moved so fast, even the chandelier was moving with her!" As for those men's ads with Inez & Vinoodh, he hints that one of them appears naked.
