Niki Taylor landed her first cover — on Seventeen, when she was just 14. For much of the 90s, Niki Taylor was the cover girl du jour, from Vogue to Sports Illustrated. However, she endured personal tragedy when her sister Krissy died suddenly in 1995 at the age of 17, and in 2001 Niki was in a severe car accident that left the supermodel in a coma for six weeks. If you didn't know, Tuesday was World Blood Donor Day, but Niki Taylor would be the first to tell you that everyday should be blood donor day. Our Fab US sisters talked to the mother of three, who is pregnant with her fourth child, about her supermodel years, her personal style, and why you should sport a zebra print bandage. FabSugar: What were some of your favourite experiences in modeling? Niki Taylor: I have gotten to travel all over the world and meet so many wonderful and interesting people. I think what has been most powerful for me though, is that modeling and being in the public eye has allowed me to give back through initiatives like the Nexcare give program with the American Red Cross. FS: Why blood? NT: After receiving 100 units of donor blood after a life-threatening car accident in 2001, the importance of donating blood became so real and so significant for me. This year, Nexcare is handing out free give bandages, and they are extra chic with fashion-inspired designs that show how helping save a life is always in style. As a supporter of blood donation and a lover of fashion, I think the bandages are a perfect way to encourage people to get out there and donate.

NT: I would probably be doing something where I get to be active all the time — maybe a personal trainer? Then again I do love to cook, so maybe even a chef. FS: If your daughter was 16 and wanted to be a model, what would you do? NT: If she thought it was something that would make her happy, I would be supportive. The industry has changed a lot since I first started at a young age, but I still think it can be a very positive experience for women who are strong, passionate, and level-headed. FS: What is your go-to outfit for Summer? NT: Especially now that I'm pregnant again, I keep my outfits very casual during the Summer. I get glammed up a lot for events and for work, which is always a treat, but in my down time I'm definitely a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. FS: Favourite online shopping site? NT: Endless.com is a great resource for shoes and handbags. It's a go-to for me. I never pay more than $100. FS: If we looked into your closet, what would we see a lot of? NT: I love Tiana B. jeans and wear them all the time when I'm running around Nashville with my family. I also have a lot of Vince dresses and tops in my closet, their clothing is beautiful and very flattering.
