A New Face for Chanel: Jamaican Model Alexia Palmer

Alexia Palmer, the well-known Jamaican model, will appear in this year’s Chanel campaign. As the Jamaica Observer reports, “Images of the 17-year-old will be mounted all across London as one the faces of fashion’s renowned cosmetic lines.”

Palmer, who was discovered in Pulse’s Caribbean Model Search, was the first Jamaican model to appear in Vogue magazine without being signed to an international label. [. . .]

A past student of Dunoon Technical High School in St Andrew, Palmer was elated on her newest achievement. “This is incredible. I am so happy for this opportunity. I want to do my best and continue to reach for the stars. I have wanted to be in this place for such a long time and now I am here and I am overwhelmed,” she said.

[. . .] Mae Wayne, publisher of SHE magazine which Palmer current graces, had high regards for the model. “She is a natural with flawless skin and a remarkable bone structure. It was an easy decision to have her as our cover girl for the first issue of 2012,” Wayne said.

Palmer won the second place in the coveted Caribbean Model Search in 2010 but had to complete her high school before embarking on an international career.

Having worked with the cast of America’s smash hit TV show, Glee for her Teen Vogue shoot and now armed with a Chanel cosmetic campaign, Palmer is looking to elevate her status to greater heights.
