Birthday: March 5, 1975 Birthplace: Ft. Lauderdale, Florida Ethnicity: Caucasian An aspiring marine biologist, Niki's career plans took a different route after her mother sent photos of the then 13-year old beauty to a Florida modeling agency. An agency signed her, and it didn't take long for Niki's beautiful face to appear on the pages of French catalogues and magazines such as Seventeen, when she was thirteen years old. The hazel-eyed, statuesque beauty broke several records in her freshman days as a model. Niki became the youngest model ever to sign a multi-million dollar contract, when she became a L'Oreal spokesperson and Cover Girl's newest face at age 17. Niki also holds the title of the youngest person to appear on the cover of the high fashion magazine Vogue. By the time Niki was 16 years of age, she had made her first million. She has appeared in over 160 magazines, including: Allure, Cosmopolitan, the American, Thai and Italian editions of Elle, Glamour, Harper's Bazaar, Mademoiselle, the Australian, Italian, British, and American editions of Marie Claire, Sassy, Shape, not to mention Yahoo Internet Life. Niki has modeled for companies such as Gap, Lee Riveted, Liz Claiborne, Nokia, Zum Zum, and the ever-so-popular Victoria's Secret, whose advertising campaign helped solidify the modeling careers of fellow models Stephanie Seymour, Helena Christensen, Tyra Banks, and Laetitia Casta.
