Cynthia Bailey: Supermodel Cynthia resides in Atlanta with her 12-year-old daughter, Noelle, and husband, Peter. The Alabama-born beauty moved to New York City 25 years ago to pursue her dream of modeling. Her first booking was the cover ofEssence, and that was only the beginning. From major fashion features to the runways of Paris and Milan Fashion Weeks, and from starring in a movie opposite Sandra Bernhardt to a guest role on The Cosby Show, Cynthia has had an enviable career.

From the opening of The Bailey Agency School of Fashion, Cynthia continues to seek out and inspire Atlanta’s most promising talent, through educating them about the industry and helping foster connections in the fashion world. Cynthia and Peter recently celebrated their two-year anniversary and despite the wedding drama and the naysayers, their union continues to grow strong. As thriving entrepreneurs, they are faced daily with the struggle to maintain balance with work, their relationship, and family.
