J. Alexander    

Reality Television Personality, Runway Coach & Author

Miss J Alexander, also known as Miss J, is an American reality television personality and runway coach best known for his work on "America's Next Top Model." Born in the Bronx, Miss J originally trained to become an accountant. But a chance encounter at sixteen - while dressed in drag - with the impressed President of Elite Model Management got him signed to the agency. There he met fresh model Tyra Banks and began to give her walking lessons. Banks coined his title Queen of the Catwalk.

Alexander's accidental career as a backstage runway coach took off, coaching such future supermodels as Naomi Campbell and Kimora Lee, and led him around the world casting and coaching models for countless top-name designers.

In 2010, Alexander wrote "Follow the Model: Miss J's Guide to Unleashing Presence, Poise, and Power," which shares his story and offers tips on how to be more confident.

He currently lives in Paris.
