Patina Miller has taken the world by storm with her portrayal of Deloris Van Cartier in Broadway’s Sister Act the Musical, but she is so much more than an actress: her beauty and impeccable style are just as inspiring as her extraordinary talent.
Patina is a Southern belle at heart, having been born and raised in South Carolina. Like so many of the world’s greatest singers, she started her musical journey in the gospel choir at her church. She went on to graduate with a degree in musical theatre from Carnegie Mellon University on full scholarship, putting actual study and practice behind her great talent. Patina was almost cast in the Dreamgirls musical in 2005, being one of the three finalists for the role of Effie. Instead, she went to work on one of the world’s best known soap operas, All My Children.
Patina was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical at the 2011 Tony Awards which is a great honor for her Broadway debut. Her style stole the show. She went for exotic, wearing a snakeskin print sequin gown from Naeem Khan’s Fall 2008 collection, showing that she isn’t afraid to take risks on the red carpet and really loves drama when it comes to fashion. She often opts for bright colors including red, green and orange and she loves to make a statement with bold lips and voluminous hair. We cannot wait to see what looks she has in store for us this year and which other projects she has on the horizon.
