Early years[edit]

Bax grew up on her parents' horse-breeding farm in Thames, New Zealand.[2]

Modeling career[edit]

Having been a teen beauty queen, Bax was first discovered in a New Zealand shopping mall by an agent from the modeling agency Clyne Model Management. After discovering her marketing abilities as a fashion model, she soon moved to New York to work as a model. Bax became Steven Meisel's protégé. She went on to work with top photographers such as Karl Lagerfeld, Helmut Newton, and Richard Avedon. Once discovered, she became an international modeling success, signing with Women in New York, Marilyn in Paris, and Storm in London. She has appeared on numerous international magazine covers, including Vogue, Marie Claire, Harper's Bazaar & Mode Australia, Maxim, Vanity Fair, and ELLE. She has also appeared on more than twenty Vogue covers around the world. In 2000, Bax joined Estella Warren, Veronica Vařeková, and Michelle Behennah in the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She has appeared in advertising campaigns for such products as Club Monaco, Anna Sui, Clinique, Ann Taylor, DKNY, Escada, Gianfranco Ferre, Giorgio Armani, Louis Vuitton, Oscar de la Renta, Sonia Rykiel, Versace, Moschino, Nars, and Valentino. She has strolled down catwalks for high fashion houses such as Moschino, Oscar de la Renta, Chanel, Christian Dior, Christian Lacroix, and Valentino, Glistening Examples, Gucci, Galliano, Donna Karan, Cynthis Rowley, Calvin Klein, Joop, Alexander McQueen, Phillip Treacy, Karl Lagerfeld, Chloe, Ralph Lauren, Prada, and Miu Miu.

In 2009, Bax sued the French men's magazine Max Magazine for using bare-breasted images of her on its magazine wrapper. No photos of her were inside the publication. [1] Her lawsuit cited that the "sexualised nature of the photographs was inconsistent with the image that she had sought to develop".[1] The images had been taken about six years earlier, and she was not compensated for their use by Max Magazine, and the photographer was assured that they would not be published without her consent.[1]

Acting career[edit]

Bax has had various roles in film, with appearances in 1999's Storm Catcher and The Big Tease. She also appeared in the 2000 comedy, We Married Margo, as well as Jill Rips that same year.

She then moved on to teen films, with a role as a Victoria's Secret supermodel in the romantic comedy Boys and Girls, along with fellow models Ines Rivero and Kristy Hinze. In 2001, Kylie and Carmen Electra appeared in Get Over It, starring Kirsten Dunst.
