Ruth Langmore from Ozark

Ruth Langmore (played by Julia Garner) is a trusted employee and confidante of Marty Byrde on the Netflix show Ozark.  Despite her young age, Ruth is a sharp and indispensable addition to Marty’s operations.  She also undergoes one of the more obvious character transformations on the show, beginning as part of an antagonistic small-time crime family who attempts to undermine Marty’s business, to a powerful part of his global operation.  Ruth’s clothing choices evolve with her character, from favoring comfortable jeans and layers in earlier seasons to a more polished professional look that favors high-waisted skirts and tucked blouses when she takes over daily operations of the Byrdes’ gambling boat enterprise.
