ANTM Series 9: Petite & High Fashion Nicole Fox

 Nicole Arianna Fox
March 6, 1991

Winner in Cycle 13

Nicole Fox graduated from Monarch High School. As of 2009, she was a sophomore student at University of Colorado at Boulder majoring in studio arts. She wanted to be an artist, journalist and model
Fox was selected as one of the 14 finalists to compete in the thirteenth cycle of America's Next Top Model, a cycle that was specially created for models who are 5'7" and under. Fox stood at 5'7", the maximum height for the entry. A couple of months before Nicole tried out for the show, she met a photographer at an art gallery in Denver. He encouraged her to try out for the show because he knew Allison Harvard of Cycle 12 was also an artist like Nicole. With his encouragement, she got up the courage to try out for America's Next Top Model.

Throughout the competition, Fox won two reward challenges and three top photos. Despite her shy and awkward personality, she never placed below fifth and was one of the strongest girls of her cycle, which was undeniably a source of talk amongst the other girls of her cycle. At the final judging, Fox was lauded for her high-fashion photographs and her successful mastery of her body proportion, in spite of her unconventional runway walk in the fashion show. In the end, she was chosen as the winner of America's Next Top Model, beating runner-up Laura Kirkpatrick, who was considered another favorite of the judges. Nicole became the third winner to have never appeared in the bottom two. This record was preceded by winners Jaslene Gonzalez and McKey Sullivan, and was succeeded by Krista White, Sophie Sumner, and Jourdan Miller. Despite the height rules, she is still taller than Cycle 3 winner Eva Pigford.

Kirkpatrick said she believed Fox won because of the strength of her photos: "Every time with the judges, she could do no wrong in front of them. They really saw her as perfect." Fox said of her win:

Sometimes I didn't think I was going to survive the journey, 
like I remember during casting week
I went home and I cried because I was like 
"What have I got myself into? I can't deal with this!" 
And I didn't think it would be okay to be that dorky girl 
but I'm a dork and I'm America's Next Top Model!

For her first-place finish, Fox received a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl cosmetics, a representation contract with Wilhelmina Models and was featured on the cover of Seventeen, as well as a six-page spread in the magazine. Tyra Banks, retired supermodel and host of America's Next Top Model, said to Fox following her win, "You are a star. You have IT!" Her sister, Alexandra Fox, said of her sister: "She's definitely glad she did it, but she wouldn't repeat it. You're on camera 24 hours a day, and you can't have a single conversation without worrying about how it will be edited."
As the winner of America's Next Top Model, Fox received a six page spread in Seventeen Magazine, and an ad for Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara. Fox has also modeled for Illiterate Magazine, in which she had a spread, and been featured on, More magazine and in OK! Magazine. Fox was featured in Wild Fox Couture's 2010 fall collection lookbook along with models Rachel Ballinger and Daria Plyushko, as well as in on-line ads for Spirit Hoods and in a campaign for Heritage 1981's Spring 2010 collection—which is a sister brand of Forever 21, and ads for Steve Madden Spring Collection. She will be in the campaign for Nicole Richie's "House of Harlow 1960 Spring 2011" fashion line. In January 2010, a news story circulated reporting that Fox would be the face of Alexander McQueen's new spring/summer collection, but this rumor was revealed to be false and has been debunked by both McQueen and Fox.
Nicole will star as Ashley, a self-mutilating outcast teenage girl in the indie teen drama Ashley, directed by Dean Ronalds and produced by Trick Candle Productions and Ronalds Brothers Productions. The film is set to be released in the US in May 2012. Nicole is portraying a model on the wedding & the runway, The Bold and the Beautiful in December 1, 6 and 7 of 2011. Fox can also be spotted in the Avengers Dr. Pepper commercial as Stan Lee's assistant.

In 2012, Nicole was chosen by director Brett Leonard for the PopFictionLife FragFilm "The Other Country - Starring Burlap to Cashmere". Nicole plays Melanie, a concert goer, who catches the eye of Johnny, the lead guitar player.
