Shiloh Malka for Fox Fall-Winter 2015
Shlomit Malka sometimes called Shiloh Malka; born December 23, 1993) is an Israeli fashion model from Tel Aviv, Israel. She has appeared in major international campaigns for Ralph Lauren, Maybelline, L’Oreal, Schwarzkopf, Bebe, and Müller Yogurt. In 2015, she became the face of Italian lingerie company Intimissimi, succeeding the likes of Irina Shayk, Barbara Palvin, Bar Refaeli and Ana Beatriz Barros.
She was born in Tel Aviv, to a family of Moroccan Jews and Russian Jews. Her father was a lawyer and her mother worked in PR. As a child, she dreamed of becoming a soldier and a veterinarian.
While she was serving as a soldier in her first year in the Israel Defense Forces, she was discovered by a model agent from her Facebook pictures. She managed to win permission to work from the army authorities, and promptly won contracts with Ralph Lauren, L’Oreal and Schwarzkopf.
As she is serving in the IDF, where she is a corporal in the army, the army permits her to take part in modeling shoots after pre-approving her requests, as long as she makes up the time when she returns from shoots. She says that the “balance between the military and modelling makes me feel good. I am grounded all the time”. Her personal interests are physics, mathematics, and animal welfare.
In 2015, she became the face of Italian lingerie company Intimissimi, leading its worldwide campaign, a position previously filled by Irina Shayk, Barbara Palvin, Bar Refaeli and Ana Beatriz Barros. Intimissimi was drawn to her natural beauty.
