Introducing Model Tiara Skipper
Tell me about Tiara I Skipper?
I was born in Winchester, Virginia but spent a majority of my youth growing up in Woodbridge, Virginia. I am very passionate and genuine in everything that I do. I’m the type of person who believes that you should never let the fear of failure stop you from trying anything. Only you can set limitations on your accomplishments.
What led to your start in modeling career?Who are your inspirations?
Honestly I feel like my I’ve always sort of been in front of the camera or in the spotlight somehow. From my parents taking me to multiple casting calls, plays, and auditions to my aunt using me as her first model for her successful photography business. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that showcasing my talents and being involved in the modeling industry is something that became apart of me.
Karrueche Tran has to be one of my biggest inspirations right now. She’s just absolutely gorgeous and has the personality to match. I love that she embraces young women to love their flaws. She’s helped (us) to remember to that being yourself and not accepting anyone else’s definition of what you should be is what gets you far.
What do you feel makes you a Hottie?
My eyes and my hips! I believe they’re some of my best features on and off camera (wink) LOL.
Who in the fashion industry would you like to work with in the future?
I would love to collaborate with Nasty Gal and HerFavoriteLA. They’re a great representation of today’s fashion for young women.
What is your ultimate career goal? Do you plan to be a model all of your life?
My ultimate career goal is to be represented by a successful brand and management team with the same driven mentality.
I have plans to be prosperous in acting as well.
Tell your fans something about you many would not know?
I think being under pressure helps me produce the best work, especially in modeling. That adrenaline rush you get when get when all eyes are on you and people have high expectations, I live for that! It’s like that’s your sink or swim moment and it truly shows you how bad you really want something.
What artists are you listening to these days?
I play Dom Kennedy and Party Next Door nonstop! I could vibe out to them all day. I’m pretty sure my neighbors know all of their songs thanks to me.
Last but not least, HYPE wants to know…What’s your CRAZIEST “Where they do that at?!” moment…
I think this concert I went to in DC has definitely brought me my craziest “Where they do that at?!” moments by far! I just remember getting to the concert way later than I wanted to be but still somehow ended up front row. Just as the concert was getting live these dudes just started yelling and trying to push some guy out the crowd. Well I look over and the guy they were trying to push away just decided he was going to let it all out and use the bathroom in the middle of the crowd! I just couldn’t believe he thought people were going to be okay with it, like where they do that at?! Haha.
I just want to take a moment to thank God and The HYPE magazine for this opportunity and seeing something in me, it’s very encouraging. The whole HYPE team helps give the people exactly what they want see and hear. Well wishes and may you all continue to be successful in every aspect.
Same to you Tiara!Tweet
