Wednesday, August 3rd: Quiana Pinckney
Quiana Pinckney began her journey as Quiana Grant, hailing from Newport News, Virginia. Quiana was raised in the church, and her faith plays an integral role in every facet of her life. At the tender age of 13 she accompanied her cousin to a model search in Hampton, VA. Quiana had no aspirations of rising to the top of the fashion industry, but was selected out of thousands by one of the world’s top model scouts Dwight Agnor. Quiana would join the elite modeling agency Wilhelmina. By the age of 16, she received her big break courtesy of a Gap campaign, photographed by Steven Meisel.
Her career continued to blossom as Quiana utilized her God given talents, sincere compassion for others, and resolute work ethic to win the hearts of her clients. Modeling provided opportunities beyond imagination. Quiana has traveled the world working with major fashion houses including Gucci by Tom Ford, Oscar de la Renta, Fendi, Yves Saint Laurent, and Tommy Hilfiger. She has graced the pages of major fashion magazines including, Italian Vogue, Teen Vogue and Allure. She’s shot with world renowned photographers Patrick Demarchelier, Mario Testino, and Annie Leibovitz to name a few.
Blessings continued to flow as Quiana transitioned from fashion to commercial clients. In 2003 she was landed her first beauty contract with Maybelline, elevating the young Ms. Grant to supermodel status. From there her career took off on a trajectory that only her parents could have predicted. Quiana shot for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition 2008, one of the many highlights of her illustrious career. Campaigns with Macy’s, Target, Loreal, and Clinique are a few places you may have seen Quiana’s work in recent years. Quiana is represented by IMG models worldwide.
She truly loves the fashion industry, and loves to encourage our youth. Quiana is passionate about volunteering with children and has given several inspirational speeches over the years to groups of young women all over the country. In her free time, she enjoys traveling with her husband Dr. James Pinckney II anywhere there’s a beach and honing her culinary skills. Quiana is an avid wine enthusiast, loves to watch the NFL after church on Sunday’s, and participates in several philanthropic ventures. She is currently designing an apparel line for her husband’s innovative healthcare delivery model, Diamond Physicians. Quiana aspires to be a beacon of light for those who do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ.
