What a Beautiful Woman Wants: Bella Harris

“I feel sexiest when I’m sun-kissed.”

Bella Harris has already modeled for Nike and mingled with Drake—not bad for a 19-year-old college student.

Her father, James “Jimmy Jam” Samuel Harris III, is half of the legendary music production and songwriting team Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Together, the duo guided Janet Jackson’s music career and wrote 41 top-ten hits in the U.S. alone.


The younger Harris was scouted at the Grammy’s before she signed her first modeling contract at age 13. The 5-foot-10-inch stunner has since been seen in two Nike ads—one featuring the iconic Cortez unisex sneak and another musical festival-themed shoot alongside R&B duo Chloe x Halle—and walked the runway for Dolce & Gabbana. 

Harris also famously made headlines in Harper’s Bazaar, W Magazine and Elle after she and Drake were allegedly spotted on a dinner date last year. When this bombshell up-and-comer isn’t busy posing for campaigns or esteemed photographers like Josh Ryan, she studies fashion at L.A.’s Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. 

Read on to learn about Harris’ dream date, Maxim Hot 100 movie star crush and more:
