James King took the name James as a childhood nickname to avoid confusion at her top modeling agency, Company Management. She was born Jaime, back in 1979, but Company Management were already representing the high profile model Jaime Rishar. When "James" entered their Manhattan doors, she was a freckled, gorgeous, button-nosed blonde from Nebraska. She looked wholesome and all-American, but there was more to the model Polaroid. With her husky voice, stylish wardrobe, effortless taste in movies and downtown music, she was a lot like fellow peer Chloë Sevigny. She was an It Girl. Her boyfriend was super hip Italian photographer Davide Sorrenti. The only problem was It Girls get lonely.
