Biography

Jacquetta Wheeler is an English supermodel. Her father, Stuart Wheeler, worked as an entrepreneur, and mother Tessa was a successful photographer.

As a child, Wheeler lived a comfortable, moderately affluent lifestyle with her family in England. At the age of fifteen, she was discovered by Italian fashion designer Stephan Jansen. Jansen asked Wheeler to go to Milan and appear in his fashion show. Later that year, she was stopped in England on her way to a salon by noted fashion photographer Mario Testino.

By the age of seventeen, Wheeler was on the face of French Vogue and part of a Gucci advertisement campaign. Although she continued to go to school at The King's School, Canterbury - in Luxmoore House, where she was taught by Peter Brodie - Wheeler would often take off days to shoot for fashion companies, such as Calvin Klein, Prada, and The Gap.

In 1999, The Face magazine declared her the 'Model of the Millennium'. Designers have continued to embrace her androgynous, waif look. In 2002, The Sunday Times named her one of Britain's highest paid supermodels. Wheeler's long list of clients, past and present, ranges from Burberry to Versace.

Wheeler currently lives in New York and is romantically involved with English photographer Alexi Lubomirski of Peruvian and Polish descent.
