Striking features, big smile and absolute poise… there was no doubt the statuesque Lois Samuels was destined for greatness. The supermodel boasts a remarkable list of achievements and continues to make her presence felt as a fashion designer for her clothing line, The Vessel. After being discovered in high school and winning Jamaican agency Pulse’s model search in 1991, Samuels found success with Calvin Klein’s ‘CK One’ advertising campaign, and was soon strutting Parisian runways for a slew of big-name labels. She became the first-ever Vogue cover girl from the Caribbean, opening the door for many other Caribbean belles to make their mark. Years later, even after marriage and children, the exotic beauty barely looks a day older.
