10 Strict Rules Travis Scott Makes Kylie Jenner Follow
Niki Taylor Says It's Stylish to Give Blood this Summer
Niki Taylor should need little introduction—the American Supermodel was one of the most ubiquitous faces in fashion throughout the '90s—gracing countless runways and magazine covers, including BAZAAR's in 1996. In 2001, the young mom to twin boys was severely injured in a car crash—requiring no fewer than 50 surgeries. Taylor counts blood transfusions for saving her life, so in 2007 she joined forces with the American Red Cross as an ambassador.
The supermodel is fronting the 7th annual "Give" campaign with the American Red Cross and Nexcare—bringing attention to the lack of blood donations during the summer months. Below, Taylor gets real about the importance of donating and some of the most memorable moments in her career.
Harper's BAZAAR: How long have you been working with the Red Cross?
Niki Taylor:I have been on their celebrity cabinet and an ambassador since 2007. My most memorable moment was playing for them on Celebrity Apprentice in 2011.
Harper's BAZAAR: Why is this Nexcare Give program so important?
NT:This program always comes at a very critical time because of summer shortages. Everyone is going on vacation and kids are out of school, everybody's busy with their schedules and they're not thinking about donating blood. Summers are important because that's when accidents go up and a lot more people are getting injured. World Blood Donor Day is this Sunday, June 14. For myself, it's very personal, the American Red Cross supplied my hospital with blood when I was in my car accident back in 2001 and I always wanted to give back to them. It's my mission now to get the word out in any way I can about blood donation.
HB: You've been through some challenging times, how do you stay positive?
NT:Definitely a good support system. I have an amazing family and friends, and I think that you should keep those people around you.
HB: What are some of your career highlights?
NT:Wow, it's been 25 years now? I would have to say my very first runway show with Thierry Mugler when I was 16, working with all those top girls at the time. I've worked with amazing photographers— I always enjoy the whole process of how everything comes together to make a beautiful photo.
