Dubbed last year as one of fashion’s brightest new faces, Binx Walton is currently enjoying the successes of her third major fashion season. Real name Leona, she was given her nickname by her brothers after the Star Wars’ amphibian Jar Jar Binks, and originally wanted to be a footballer before NEXT snapped her up in 2012. Famed for her androgynous style and A-symmetrical undercut coiffure, Binx has walked for a host of major fashion houses and stars in the S/S14 Céline campaign, wearing the season’s galactic Triangle-Heeled Mule. Ahead of the Céline show in Paris, AnOther speak to Binx about home comforts and her favourite fashion moments so far.
