Memphis-born model and influencer Paris Chanel has fashion and beauty on her mind. The international model has been featured in GQ Mexico and has created a branding empire on social media. When she isn’t traveling the world modeling for top brands, she is running her own company, The Paris Chanel Agency.

Beauty Inspiration

Paris took an interest in modeling at 12 years old. She said was inspired by her mother. “I was a tomboy wanting to play basketball and she put me in modeling school,” Paris said. “The minute I saw Naomi Campbell and Tyra Banks, I knew what my destiny was.”

She still keeps her tomboy vibes going and describes herself as a “Glam Tomboy” until it’s time to hit the red carpet then it’s “lights, camera, action.”

Brand Ambassador

Her more than 73,000 Instagram followers are treated to stunning photos of her and the brands she represents. She has been affiliated with Harley Davidson, Reebok, Coca-Cola, Ravean, and other major brands. She got her marketing flair while earning a business degree in Finance and Marketing from Christian Brothers University.  

Modeling

Paris has more than 15 years of modeling experience. She uses her knowledge and experience to run a successful agency. She keeps her schedule full by booking modeling gigs for herself and her clients. Paris has been published in Playboy Mexico, Chulo, RHK, Moll Mag, and many more.
