Phoenix Stanna is a California girl; born in Newport Beach, CA, she spent a lot of time at the beach. Growing up, and even now on the weekends she would be at the beach with her best friend, Kayla, and her dad.
Phoenix's love of the beach, and surfer boys, inspired her to get a job at Kanvas by Katin in Sunset, CA. After working their she landed the title of Surf Shop Hottie in the BODYBOARDING magazine. Shortly thereafter she was voted as, “All-American girl” on SURFILLISTRATED.com.
Phoenix decided to turn to the pageant world. She won the classic girl position, for the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, a celebrity invitational golf tournament. She has won other titles such as Miss Newport Beach USA, Miss Desert Expedition and Miss Hawaiian Topic international team.
Phoenix continues to build her portfolio doing print work for FrenchiB make-up line, Rebel Spirit, Freegun USA, Miss Freegun, Ergo Baby, Allergra-D. Last year she had international exposure as Connie Britton's body double in American Horror Story. She wants the viewers to feel something, and she tries to capture the moment when she models.
Janice Dickinson, GIA and Brigitte Bardot, are three women that Phoenix really looks up to. She says, "All three women have different qualities that I love about them. I love to give back to the community and really try at least to make some sort of positive impact in people's lives."
She gives back by making speeches at high schools on behalf of Puente Project, a Latino empowerment program that serves to build a bridge, for students to reach college goals. She admires the advocacy that Brigitte Bardot did with the Animal Rights group, and while she is also an extreme animal lover, her passion is to give back to the youth.
Phoenix has made speeches to Orangewood Children's Home in Orange County, CA, a place for abused and neglected children. There she visited and mentored the children at Orangewoods Children's Home. She hopes to one day start a sponsorship program for children in foster care so that they can have some love, support, and encouragement to follow their dreams.
