Ralph Lauren model discovered in Newport restaurant

A teen who is the face of Polo Ralph Lauren in advertisements seen all around the world was discovered right here in Rhode Island.

A Ralph Lauren stylist discovered model Morgan O’Connor while he was dining at the Clarke Cooke House in Newport about five years ago. O’Connor had a very distinct style with double breasted blazers, pocket squares, and ties.

“The people at Ralph Lauren are almost like a family,” he said. “Everyone’s really nice, really genuine. It’s not how a lot of people perceive the fashion world.”

The local model is also involved in the Opera House restoration project, which is aimed at putting life back into one of Newport’s gems.

Watch the video above for a closer look at Morgan’s life as a Ralph Lauren model.
