Ethnicity: African descent.
Hobby: Equestrian rider.
Ms. Fox stands at 5’9 1/2 ft tall & is set to walk the catwalk for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2016 in Paris, France.
She has made her debut as a model on the catwalks in Paris, London, Milan and New York and opened the Yeezy SS/17 show in New York Fashion Week. Fox has walked the runway for designer brands including: Maison Valentino, Tommy Hilfiger, Marc Jacobs, Rodarte, brand, Miu Miu, Coach, Burberry, Stella McCartney, and Julien Mac Donald.
After reading an article about IMG’s digital scouting campaign WeLoveYourGenes, Fox tagged three photos of herself with the campaign hashtag, #WLYG, on Instagram. “I didn’t realize that other girls had Instagram profiles dedicated to it,” says Fox. “I just hashtagged three pictures where I looked the most natural and wasn’t wearing really any makeup.”
Less than 24 hours later, a representative from IMG contacted Fox through Instagram to ask for more photos. Within two days, Fox headed to New York, was signed, and made her debut on the Marc Jacobs resort 2016 runway a few months later.
She also starred in a Tommy Hilfiger Campaign alongside Gigi Hadid.

What Are You Wearing?
Taken behind-the-scenes at this year’s Victoria’s Secret fittings. Which answers, as the title suggests, the question of what exactly our favourite VS ladies wear, well, when they aren’t in their undies. And, being as they are, aesthetically blessed beings who have descended from the heavens above, they obviously have perfectly formed lewks to match. But don’t take our word for it. Watch the film above instead, which stars Ming Xi, Kelly Gale, Lameka Fox and many many more…
My dad trains and races Standardbred [horses]. I used to help him train and jog them,” says Fox. She bets on them too: “This year, I bet on American Pharaoh who won all three of the series! First time since the seventies.
And I won a little bit to buy a new bag!” But even when it came to her off-duty equine life, Fox always managed to infuse a bit of fashion into the racetrack.
“A family friend gave me a horse,” says Fox. “And I named him Versace.”
