From Aphrodite and Helen of Troy to pop star Helena Paparizou, photo model and TV host Maria Menounos and glamour model Georgia Salpa, this beautiful and exotic Mediterranean country has a long history of producing some of the world’s most stunning women.
A country of heroes, gods, olive trees and statues honoring Plato and Aristole, this nation of 10.7 million has come a long way from being associated with the days of Athens and Sparta battling for city-state supremacy and being the first home of the Olympics to producing some of the world’s best yogurt and NBA All-Stars such as Giannis Antetokounmpo.
With models such as Illiana Papageorgiou, Santa Dimopulos and Evelina Papantoniou gracing some of the hottest runways, magazine covers and music charts, perhaps American-born Keira Fox is set to become the next Greek goddess.
The 20-year-old southern Maryland-born glamour and lingerie model exudes a sense of edge, raw sexiness and curves thanks to her shapely 5’7 figure that would make Venus proud.
From brunette to blond and back again, The Greek-American Fox lives up to her surname in being one herself.
A proud vegan and die-hard New England patriots fan, Fox is set to become one of the hottest and most promising new names and faces to keep an eye on in the world of glamour modeling.
Below is my Q and A with Keira as we talk about The Hef, going back to her natural “roots” and how a Maryland-born girl became a fan of the hated Patriots.
Name: Keira Fox
Birthplace: Southern Maryland
Residence: Norfolk, Virginia
So how does a girl from Maryland end up becoming a Patriots fan? Isn’t that grounds for expulsion? Haha! Well, I became a Patriots fan after watching the Super Bowl one year when I was just 7 years old. I just thought ‘wow, that team is awesome’. Now to this day I’ve stuck with them, the only difference is now I actually understand the game!
Do you think they’ve got a shot at repeating? No question. If anything I’d say they’re looking stronger this year.
Your new brunette look exudes a sense of class, intrigue and sexiness, what inspired you to go dark? First of all, thank you! I’m actually a natural brunette. I went blonde for about 2 years and just wanted a change. I really missed my dark hair and I’m glad I’ve got it back to an ash brown!
Thoughts on the passing of Hugh Hefner and his legacy in glamour modeling? I think he will be dearly missed but always remembered as an American legacy.
What brands have you modeled for? I’ve modeled for ModelzView magazine. I haven’t modeled any brands in particular.
Where has been your favorite place to shoot? Outer Banks of NC.
What is the most exciting aspect of modeling? Being able to work with photographers and other models who share my passion for modeling. There’s never a dull moment!
What first inspired you to become one? I love photography in general. I personally have not shot any models. I like landscape, action, and pet photography. So, I wanted to try being on the other side of the camera and I had a ton of fun with it.
As a model, do you feel that more can be done by those in the industry? Why and why not? Definitely. I think the industry should use their outreach to the benefit of non-profits. I still remember when Khloe Kardashian posed nude for PETA’s anti-fur campaign, ‘I’d rather be naked than wear fur’,and I was incredibly inspired and touched that she did that. I think she reached a lot of people and helped shed light on an important issue. Models have so much public influence and so many opportunities to create change…I’d love to see that happening more in the industry.
How do you loved ones and family feel abut you being in modeling? They’re supportive! Don’t get me wrong, there’s a stigma attached to modeling. Yet at the end of the day, I’m a full time college student, working a part time job, and modeling as well. I’m trying to make my way in this world like everyone else, and my family supports that.
Within the industry, who is your modeling inspiration? Cara Delevigne.
What is your workout and fitness secret to staying in shape? Squats. Can’t get enough of them!
As someone who has is very curvy, what do you think best exudes sexiness and confidence? Confidence itself! When you’re confident in your own skin, it shows on and off camera.
What is your opinion of the whole “shaming” issue that seems to permeate across social media and how have you handled it, if any haters tried to call you out? I personally have not had any shaming issues (yet). If someone were to call me out, I would see it as an opportunity to change their mind!
What would you say is your best feature? My eyes!
Athleisure? Tights and a tank top! That’s my go to for running errands or working out!
Fashion or fitness fad? Waist training for sure. If I’m not at the gym, I’m waist training!
With fall right around the corner, what fashion and style tips and trends do you have for looking good when the temperature drops? I’m a huge fan of sweater dresses and high-heel boots. Classy and trendy combo that can easily be paired with layers and a coat–no matter how chilly it is!
Best thing you did this past summer? I got to spend a lot of time with my family this summer and managed to take a few road trips as well, and those are always fun!
What swimwear trends did you feel were big this summer? One piece swimsuits have gotten really big. Especially solid neutral colors like black, grey, and white.
What was your go-to swimwear style that you HAD to have. A black two piece bikini. Simple and sexy.
Any plans for fall and winter? Not currently. Getting through this semester is my focus right now!
Pumpkin spice: overrated or just right? Overrated. French Vanilla is where it’s at.
Best thing about the fall? Watching the leaves fall and the trees change, it’s so beautiful. Not to mention the weather is perfect!
G-string, thong or commando? Commando, all day. Why wear anything if you don’t have to?
What would you say is your best feature? My eyes. I’m your new favorite brown-eyed girl. 🙂
Any future projects coming down the pipeline? Yes! Lots. I’m actually working on a short film project. I’m collabing with an up and coming videographer and a music producer to create a music video. That’s all I can say for now, but it is currently the biggest project I’m working on!
Outside of modeling, what are your hobbies? I’m a full-time student studying Business Administration. So when I’m not modeling, I’m either studying or working on improving myself and my fanbase.
What are your favorite cities to travel to? I really like traveling to Upstate NY. There is so much natural beauty!
What advice would you give to women aspiring to get into modeling? Be yourself. There will always be people in ‘competition’ with you. Focus on yourself and how you can get noticed. If you waste time looking at others progress you could miss opportunities for your own career. Always remember, “a lion doesn’t concern himself with the opinion of sheep”.
