When the cameras are on her, she gives the impression that she is the only woman in the world.
Kiki Barth is elegant, attractive, intelligent and exudes beauty in and out. Her style is the embodiment of classic. We’ve been privileged to spend yet another day with Kiki, only this time without her daughter/sidekick, who is absolute cuteness for days.
Born and raised in the small town of Saint Marc in Haiti, Kiki Barth was only 13 years old when she and her father moved to the U.S to start a new life. She’s a perfect example of how hard work and perseverance can pave a way despite all odds being stacked against you. Kiki Barth is a beautiful Haitian woman who has pride in her heritage and walks with her head held high.
Even though she is in America making big moves and making a name for herself, Kiki is very passionate about where she is from. She recognizes the need to give back and help young ones ascend to great heights, so she created a non-profit organization called Kiki’s Kids Foundation. Kiki quotes, “the goal of the foundation is to create content that educates, informs, and inspires the young minds of the kids in Haiti. To realize that they can dream and through hard work be able to obtain those dreams.” She is in a very great position to inspire others because she was able to achieve success despite all the obstacles and unfavorable conditions she has had to grapple with growing up.
Kiki started a modeling career at 16 after her stepmother threw her out of the house at the age of 15. At the time she could barely speak English, which undoubtedly made navigating and relating to others quite arduous; however, she was not deterred by these unpalatable circumstances. Kiki says, “I had to think on my feet, adapt, and figure out how to survive.” She worked at fast food restaurants trying to make ends meet while nursing her little one and working towards her dream of becoming a model.
Kiki has an incredible sense of beauty and fashion. She’s comfortable in her skin and everything she wears looks great on her. Her favorite beauty tip is... “sleep, sleep, and then some more.”Make water your best buddy as well.” Coconut oil is her go-to beauty suggestion for Haitians; it means everything to her. She uses it to massage herself, shave, hydrate, remove eye makeup, and deep condition.
She got a big break when she met renowned photographer Bruce Weber. She is currently signed to Front Management, a top modeling agency that she shares with highly successful international models. Her hard work and determination paid off to the extent that she was able to bring her mother to the U.S from Haiti after the earthquake that took place in 2010.
Her success continues and she’s become no stranger to the spotlight. Kiki joined the cast of “The Real Housewives of Miami reboot” season 4 in 2021 as one of the newest friends on the show. Her fashion sense did not go unnoticed with the must have pink feather embellished dress seen on the “Painted With Pride," the beautiful orange fringed cutout dress on the “Hamptons Hangover” episode, the red coral print cutout dress seen during "Bling, Boobs and Bickering," and we can’t forget the pink asymmetric satin dress on “Le Fin?”
Most recently, Kiki Barth was spotted during Miami Swim Week with photos having gone viral on the internet. She always maintains her popularity with her new looks, styles and fashion. It’s no wonder we find Kiki to be the Real Housewife of Fashion.
