We’re a little obsessed – to say the least – with 19-year-old model of the moment Binx Walton, so when we got wind that she was teaming up with cult Italian sneaker brand, Superga, we couldn’t wait to get the goss!
Set to bring a touch of her cool, raw style to the collection of cool kicks, Binx is riding high in the fashion charts at the mo. As well as staring in the label’s SS15 campaign, she is set to debut her designer skills by creating four styles for Superga’s AW15 collection. If Ms Walton isn’t already on your radar, here’s the lowdown on the hottest model on the block…
The Nashville, Tennessee native’s real name is Leora Walton, but while watching Star Wars when she was six or seven, her brother said she looked like Jar Jar Binks, and so Binx was born.
Binx was scouted lounging by the pool with sister aged just 9, and after being signed to Next Models in 2012, made her campaign debut for Marc Jacobs AW13.
She walked in a whopping 57 shows this past fashion month, putting her firmly in the same league as Cara, Kendall, Karlie and co.
Not just a pretty face, Binx also creative directed her Superga campaign.
If she wasn’t a model, she’d be a soccer player, and her favourite food is fried chicken.
Erm, Binx, can we be your BFF?
