Nikia Phoenix

Meet Nikia Phoenix of

While grabbing coffee and bagels one morning, I was discovered by Greg Altermann of Alternative Apparel. We struck up a conversation about vintage t-shirts, and by the end of it he was asking me to model for his company. Even with a hat pulled down over my face, he saw my potential. Who knew that one chance meeting would lead to my face in campaigns, billboards and commercials. See more at:

Personal style in one word


Favorite Designer

Tom Ford. Everything he does is sexy.

Essential Accessory

A great ring. The bigger and more obnoxious the better.

Favorite Place to Shop

I absolutely love thrift stores. You can find some of the best things there from Christian Dior dress shirts to vintage ball gowns.

Go-To Beauty Product

I refuse to go anywhere without lip gloss. It doesn't have to be expensive, in fact the cheap kind does just fine. Lip gloss can take you from blah to hello with just a little bit of shine.

Keep it simple. Finding the right orange lipstick is easier than you think. I've got a few favorites on le blog including this darling from @makeupforeverofficial. Photo by @6twenty7. #beauty #orangelips #makeupforever #freckles #modelliberation
Once upon a time when I was four. Only one freckle, big glasses,  and red hair. Good gracious! #fbf #littleme
