She grew up on her parents' horse-breeding farm in Thames, New Zealand. Having been a beauty queen, Bax was first discovered in a New Zealand shopping mall by an agent from modelling agency Clyne Model Management.
After discovering her marketing abilities as a fashion model, she soon moved to New York in to work as a model. Bax became Steven Meisel's protege. With her new "boyish looks" but still very feminine, she went on to work with top photographers such as Karl Largerfeld, who treated her like his daughter, Helmut Newton and Richard Avedon.
Bax is currently married-to fashion photographer Spiros Poros and has two daughters, Lito and Dione Nefeli. Bax also has a stepson named Aris.

On November 3, 2006, Bax filed a federal lawsuit in Los Angeles Friday against a French men’s magazine for putting two breast-baring photos of her on its wrapper. Bax claims she did not give permission for the racy photographs, which were taken about six years ago, to be used on the front and back of Max Magazine’s April 2006 wrapper .
Once discovered Bax 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, ELLE and Sports Illustrated. She has also appeared on more than 20 Vogue covers around the world.
