Rise to Stardom
Sierra Skye loved spending time with children and was contemplating pursuing a course after completing school when her life took a striking turn. While she was passionate about fitness and fashion as a child, she did not have career goals in the modeling field and only had started out her social media journey by joining various platforms, especially Instagram. The first picture she uploaded on the platform in May 2015 was that of her kitten. Looking at her current Instagram feed, one would think it is a mix of her dedicated workout routine, her voluptuous beauty and her carefree lifestyle that drew numerous fans to her.
Sierra Skye told in a Q&A video that she had only a few thousand followers when she was in high school, but it all changed after she met her boyfriend Roman Palumbo, who had a couple hundred thousand followers at the time. They began traveling together to places like Hawaii and Costa Rica, often with family, and he began tagging her on his posts, which helped her gain exposure. They also began making couple-type videos which became very popular with their fans.
Roman Palumbo, a professional photographer, helped her get the attention of the brand Boutine Los Angeles, which offered her a modeling assignment. It was her first proper modeling job, and she accepted it following encouragement from her mother and Roman. Her social media following soared as the brand began tagging her on their posts as well. She later signed a contract with the talent agency, Elite Model Management, Miami, and began working as a professional model for international fashion brands, and made a name for herself as a swimsuit model. While it has just been a little over four years now, her popularity on Instagram has grown exponentially, earning her over 4 million followers already.
