The New Face: Chia Jenious-Namavong, 36, Model
Her Favorite Things: "I find peonies absolutely gorgeous," says Jenious-Namavong, winner of the 2012 Wilhemina 30+ Model Search. "They're delicate and have so many layers to them—they're like a metaphor for life." Also: Olay face cream and knee-length pencil skirts in black. "Pencil skirts are so demure, they just make you feel like a lady," says Jenious-Namavong, mother of two boys, 15 and 9.
Her Everyday Look: "I try to be a girly girl, but the truth is, I'm usually in my Nike running pants and a T-shirt."
Her Merrymaking Style: "The holiday party is usually at my house—my husband loves to cook—so it's all about comfort. I do wear a cute apron with frills, though."
