Newport News, Virginia native Quiana was discovered while accompanying her cousin to a local model search at age thirteen. She received her big break courtesy of a Gap campaign, photographed by Steven Meisel. Perhaps most significantly, this was followed by a three-year contract with Maybelline New York.
Quiana has appeared in numerous high-profile beauty and fashion campaigns, including Yves Saint Laurent’s best-selling Touche Éclat, in addition to Macy’s, Michael Kors, and Clinique. Quiana was also featured in Sport’s Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2008, and David Roemer captured her for Glamour Italia. Quiana has also appeared in the international collections of Karl Lagerfeld, Anne Klein, Bill Blass, and Michael Kors, among others.
Off-duty, Quiana enjoys spending time with her family, and traveling (naturally!) to far-flung destinations. Socially-minded, the avid football fan is actively involved with Project Sunshine, New York Cares, and Dress for Success.
