For the sixth edition of our editorial series Meet the Muse, we’re back with another feature from esteemed photographer Rupert Lamontagne. Bleach blonde beauty Emily Ruhl is captured in leafy suburbia in a shoot that smacks of retro Americana, thanks in part to the palm trees, decor and impressive LIFE magazine collection. Emily sports pieces by Vans, adidas, 69 US and Gosha Rubchinskiy.

To give you more insight into Emily’s life, we asked her nine questions – both relevant and random – in order to get to know a little bit more about her, and really Meet the Muse. See what she had to say below, then go peep our previous installment featuring Carla Grelier.
