Lexi Boling started modeling almost 4 years ago when her mom made her attend an open call at Ford Chicago. Coined as one of fashion’s favorite “bad girls”, Chicago native Lexi Boling insists she’s just a normal girl who misses just hanging out with friends, doing absolutely nothing. It’s part her edgy looks, bookings for rockstar brands like Alexander Wang, & admitted outspokenness that have surely resulted in Lexi’s bad girl reputation. When asked by Vogue Italia online what her best quality was, Boling answered “not caring about people.”

Known for not being one to hold back, Boling got herself into a bit of social media drama, when her and fellow model and friend Binx Walton threw Instagram shade at Kendall Jenner recently. Team Jenner went a bit mad defending the reality star/model online, and Boling did eventually issue an apology, stating “I wasn’t thinking and made a silly comment. Kendall’s had a killer NYFW. A big congrats to her!”

When not poking fun at socialites, Boling has situated herself as a real force to be reckoned with amongst the fashion set. She has worked with heavy weights like Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Dior, Prada, and Vogue Italia, where she has graced the cover a remarkable 5x already. Lexi considers the photographer who shot and booked her for those covers, the legendary Steven Meisel, to be a major influence on her. She has said “Every time I am on set with him, I push myself and learn so much. He is such an important part of my career and an absolutely amazing person.”

Lexi Boling- opinionated and not afraid to share it? Definitely. Gorgeous, gazelle- like, and armed with some fashion industry staying power? Absolutely.
