Liberty Lettice Lark Ross (23 September 1978)[1][2] is an English model and actress. She has appeared in publications such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, i-D, and Dazed & Confused. She played the role of Queen Eleanor in the 2012 fantasy film Snow White and the Huntsman, directed by her husband at the time, Rupert Sanders. She is the sister of composers Atticus and Leopold Ross.[3][4]

Career[edit]

Ross worked sporadically as a model throughout her childhood. She appeared on Ozzy Osbourne's No Rest for the Wicked album cover at the age of nine.[5] In 1992 she signed with Storm Model Management.

Ross was awarded Model of the Year at the Elle Style Awards in 2000.

In 2004 Ross appeared in the Pirelli Calendar photographed by Nick Knight. Shortly after, Ross began a three year hiatus to focus on her family life that ended in 2007 when she re-signed with Storm.

Campaigns[edit]

In 2000 she was the face of an Emanuel Ungaro ad campaign.

In 2002 she was photographed for Burberry's spring campaign alongside Kate Moss and Eva Herzigova.

In 2003 she became the face of the luxury footwear brand Jimmy Choo.

In 2004 she modelled for Dior's Addict perfume.

Notable covers and editorials[edit]

In May 2000, Ross appeared on the twentieth anniversary cover of The Face alongside Kate Moss.

Ross appeared on the cover of British Vogue twice, making her first appearance on a solo cover in June 2000 photographed by her friend Mario Testino. Her second appearance was on the January 2002 cover, again photographed by Testino, alongside nine other British models including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Stella Tennant and Erin O'Connor.

She also had two solo covers with Vogue Russia. The first time photographed by Robin Derrick for the December 2000/January 2001 issue and then in 2003 photographed by Todd Barry.

Ross also appeared on the November 2002 cover of British magazine i-D photographed by Kayt Jones.

Career renaissance[edit]

Following her husband’s well publicized affair, Ross began to stage a career comeback appearing on the cover of online magazine The Edit[6] and in the pages of Vanity Fair.[5]

Other projects[edit]

Ross was a frequent collaborator with SHOWstudio appearing in multiple short films and projects.[7]

Ross also contributed to British Vogue's online blog from 2009 to 2012.

Personal life[edit]

Ross married director Rupert Sanders in 2002.[8][9] Though both Ross and Sanders are British, they moved to Los Angeles to further Sanders' career, and Ross focused on being a wife and mother.[9] Together they have two children, daughter Skyla and son Tennyson.[10] In July 2012, Us Weekly published photos of Sanders cheating on Ross with actress Kristen Stewart,[11] prompting Sanders and Stewart to issue separate public apologies.[12][13][14] Ross subsequently filed for divorce from Sanders in January 2013, seeking joint custody, spousal support, and legal fees.[15]
