What is Carly Foulkes's Net Worth?

Carly Foulkes is a Canadian model and actress who has a net worth of $3 million. Carly Foulkes rose to prominence in the early 2010s for starring in a series of television commercials for the T-Mobile myTouch 4G smartphone. In the ads, she gained attention for her sartorial styles, including pink-and-white summer dresses and a pink-and-black leather biker suit. Foulkes remained the T-Mobile 4G spokesperson until 2013. At the peak of her career with T-Mobile, Carly was earning $1 million per year.

Early Life and Education

Carly Foulkes was born on August 4, 1988 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to British parents. She has two sisters named Kimmy and Angie. Foulkes was educated at Loretto Abbey Catholic Secondary School.

Modeling Career

Foulkes began modeling at the age of 13 in 2001. After starting out in her native Toronto, she moved to New York City following high school. Foulkes went on to model in Europe and Singapore. Represented by Modelwerk and Sutherland Models, she has appeared in ads for such fashion brands as Abercrombie & Fitch, Rugby Ralph Lauren, and Tommy Hilfiger. Foulkes also graced the cover of the Mexican version of Elle magazine in the spring of 2009. The Los Angeles Times has described her look as a cross between actresses Anne Hathaway and Kim Basinger.

T-Mobile Spokesperson

In the fall of 2010, Foulkes became the spokesperson for the wireless network operator T-Mobile and its myTouch 4G smartphone. She went on to star in a series of television commercials for the brand in Canada and the United States. In the ads, Foulkes attracted attention for her good looks and sartorial style, notably her pink-and-white summer dresses. Later, she wore magenta. Foulkes also appeared in T-Mobile's hit 2011 holiday season commercial, which featured 100 Chicago-area women in magenta dresses singing and dancing at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, Illinois. In 2012, Foulkes abandoned her characteristic pink dresses and high heels for a pink-and-black leather biker outfit in T-Mobile's rebranded ad campaign. This transformation took place in the commercial entitled "Alter Ego," which was intended to show T-Mobile "challenging the status quo," in the words of the company. The 1000 cc Ducati superbike ridden by Foulkes, meanwhile, was intended to symbolize the "speed and capabilities" of T-Mobile's 4G network.

During her time as a T-Mobile spokesperson, Foulkes emerged as something of a sex symbol. She was even asked by airman Adam Stelmack to accompany him to the Air Force Ball in Guam, but she declined. In early 2013, Foulkes was described by Business Insider as "one of the most recognizable brand spokespeople." However, not long after that, Foulkes ended her tenure as spokesperson during T-Mobile's ad campaign for its iPhone 5 rollout. The company clarified that, while the T-Mobile Girl was not a part of the campaign, she remained a part of the company's "brand family." That summer, Foulkes returned to participate in T-Mobile press events, and appeared in a T-Mobile public service announcement about texting and driving. In the fall, T-Mobile announced a multi-year contract with Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira, confirming that Foulkes would not return to the campaign as spokesperson.

Personal Life

In contrast to her pink feminine image in the early T-Mobile ads, Foulkes is a video game junkie and a skateboarder. She claims not to wear pink in her personal wardrobe.
