Kingston, Jamaica native Jeneil Williams was discovered at an annual casting call in her hometown. She received her big break courtesy of a Benetton campaign, photographed by David Sims, with whom she worked again for a series of Sephora promotions.
Perhaps best known for glowing complexion and athletic build (prior to modeling, she was an Olympic Games-bound track and field star before sustaining an injury that derailed her sports career), Williams collaborated with Nike and i-D magazine on a fitness-inspired video promotion.
Additionally, Williams has starred in advertising campaigns for Jimmy Choo, Edun and Balenciaga. Mert & Marcus photographed her for the cover of LOVE magazine, and she has also graced the covers of Vogue Turkey, and i-D magazine (twice!), among others. Select editorial features include the international editions of Vogue, and W magazines by Mario Testino, and Alasdair McLellan, and Ellen Von Unwerth, respectively. She has also walked the runway for Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Diane Von Furstenberg, Kenzo, Viktor & Rolf, Tome, and Opening Ceremony.
The self-proclaimed fitness and nutrition obsessive loves cooking, and dreams of one day presenting her own health and wellness-focused television program. Off-duty, she enjoys spending time with her family on the beach in Jamaica with fresh fruits and refreshing coconut water.
