Leona Binx Walton

Leona "Binx" Walton 

If you haven't heard about her or seen her cute little face walking the runways for your favorite designers, let me be the first to tell you..Binx is one of the most in demand models in the fashion game right now.

(Leona received the nick name Binx from her older brother who used to tease her as they thought she resembled Star Wars amphibian Jar Jar Binx)  

Often mistaken for a boy, 19 year old Leona first got her start dancing, she's trained West African, Hip Hop and Modern dance. Although she's talented and beautiful, this young tomboy from Tennessee didn't have it easy when she was a pre-teen starting out in the industry. She started out in New York with little success when a London agency reached out to Binx and suggested she cut off her hair and pin back her ears and the rest is history. 

This southern belle is signed to NEXT NYC and currently the face of Celine, Binx has walked a total of 27 shows for Spring/Summer 2014 including Chanel, Prada and Marc Jacobs. She also models along side other famous faces like Cara Delevingne, Grace Mahary and Kendall Jenner. Check out Binx's history here
