Kimberly Alana Stewart (born August 21, 1979), is a socialite, reality TV star, actress, model, and fashion designer. She is the daughter of Rod Stewart and Alana Stewart.

Early life[edit]

Kimberly Stewart was born on August 21, 1979, in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles, California.[1] She is the second of Rod Stewart′s eight children and second of Alana Stewart′s three children. After graduating from Buckley school in Sherman Oaks, California,[citation needed] she spent several years studying acting with coaches Janet Alhanti and Ivana Chubbuck.[2][3] Stewart studied in London with theatre coaches Barbara Houseman (Central School of Speech and Drama/Royal Shakespeare Company coach) and Penny Dyer (Rada and Central School of Speech & Drama coach) and with singing coach Mark Meylan, who works with The Royal National Theatre.[2][3]

Career[edit]

Acting[edit]

Stewart has worked as an actress[4] and brand ambassador.[2] Stewart's American television work includes a leading role in Going to California, written by Scott Rosenberg and directed by Ted Demme,[2] and appearing in one episode of Judd Apatow's series, "Undeclared."[2] Stewart′s first film was James Toback′s, Black and White, which also starred Robert Downey, Jr., and Jared Leto.[2] In 2011 Stewart starred in the movie Homecoming, written and directed by Sean Hackett.[2]

Fashion[edit]

Stewart has appeared on the covers for Tatler and German Vanity Fair, which Bryan Adams shot;[2] and she has worked with fashion companies including Tommy Hilfiger,[5] American Vogue,[2] L’uomo Vogue,[2] Elle,[2] Italian Vogue,[2][6] Vanity Fair,[2] MaxMara,[2] Richard Tyler,[5] Catherine Malandrino,[5] underwear line Ultimo (in a £100,000 deal),[7] Tatler,[2] InStyle,[2] House of Field,[5] and Chrome Hearts.[2]

She realized an early ambition, at age 19, when she launched her own fashion collection - “Pinky Starfish.”[2][6] Known for its dresses made from French vintage fabrics,[2] the range was sold in Tracey Ross, Lisa Kline and Barney’s.[2] She started her own clothing label, but it foundered because she couldn't get the supply chain to work.[8]

Modelling[edit]

On September 9, 2008 the Atlanta-based band, "Elevation", released the music video for its single, “Razoreyes", starring Stewart, marking a first in her career.[9][10]

Stewart posed nude in 2008 in the British society magazine Tatler, along with Peaches Geldof, daughter of the Boomtown RatsBob Geldof, and Leah Wood, daughter of the Rolling StonesRonnie Wood.[11] The photographer was Canadian rocker and photographer Bryan Adams. Stewart had previously posed nude with a crucifix in Italian Vogue, dismaying the Vatican.[6]

Personal life[edit]

In 2005, Stewart became engaged to one of the stars of the MTV reality show Laguna Beach, Talan Torriero, after knowing him just a few weeks.[12] At the time, he was 19 and she was 26.[12] The couple called off their engagement less than two weeks after announcing it.[13]

On April 11, 2011, Benicio del Toro's publicist announced that Stewart was pregnant with his child, although the two were not a couple.[14][15] Stewart gave birth to a daughter, Delilah Genoveva Stewart del Toro,[16] on August 21, 2011.[17] Delilah is Rod Stewart's first grandchild.[14]
