Congratulations 2 my beautiful wife Crissy & her equally lovely twin Kimmy @ChinTwins 4 their great story on Self.com

Movement—whether its dance or yoga—is an art form. And to remind us of that are the ChinTwins, twin sisters Cristen Barker and Kimberly Hise who have shared their entire chakra series with SELF exclusively.

"I grew up with a model in the house, which explains a few things about me. My mother, who is half English and half Sri Lankan, was almost crowned Miss Sri Lanka in 1960 at seventeen. When another contestant complained that my mother was biracial and should not be able to enter the competition—my grandmother had been cast out from her own family for marrying an Englishman—she was disqualified. Undeterred, my mother went on to build a successful career modeling in her native country and abroad, and it was very hard won. At eighteen, she used the money she earned from posing for Pakistan International Airlines and Ceylon Woman magazine, from swimsuit modeling, and from acting in films such as The Bridge on the River Kwai to bring her mother and sister over to England with her when she emigrated in 1961.

The world saw my mother as a beautiful woman, and I certainly did too, but I also saw the hard work and dedication it takes to maintain a career as a model, especially while raising a family. My mother was passionate about what she did and very driven. She was also kind to the people she worked with as well as to those around her—and remains so to this day. The same effortless beauty she showed in pictures extended to her life off camera, so I grew up with a strong understanding of the power of grace and charm and a belief that modeling could be a valuable endeavor, as well as a good opportunity for me. I didn’t yet understand how her work affected others out there in the world, but her influence over me, and my appreciation of her career, was certainly profound." - From my new book Models of Influence - 50 Women Who Reset The Course of Fashion. I'll be signing books this afternoon in Grand Rapids MI from 4-7pm at AK.RIKKS and giving a talk and book signing at Barnes & Nobles from 7pm - hope to see you there! #ThrowbackThursday #Mum

Introduction

For the past twenty years, Nigel Barker has been taking the worlds of fashion, beauty and entertainment by storm. Regarded internationally as a renowned photographer, his presence in the fashion, beauty and entertainment industries has resulted in an array of exciting projects including films, commercials, spokesperson roles, books, photographic exhibitions, international editorial assignments and the creation of his own show, The Shot on VH1. After 17 seasons as the judge on the hit show, Americaʼs Next Top Model, we are excited to announce that Barker will be the host on the Oxygen Networkʼs The Face, along side Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha premiering February 12th at 9 Pm on Oxygen

His directorial debut was a highly acclaimed documentary that he also produced called, A Sealed Fate? - followed by, Generation Free, Haiti: Hunger and Hope and most recently, Dreams are Not Forgotten, which partner with respective charities: The Humane Society of the United States, The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation and the Edeyo Foundation, to highlight some of our worldʼs most pressing issues. Additionally, Barker is involved with the USO and is a celebrity ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Do Something organization, the United Nations Foundation and campaign shooter for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer.

Barker's unique positioning as photographer, filmmaker, author and father has secured him highly successful spokesperson positions for prominent brands including, Microsoft, Sony, Crest White Strips and Nine West. Nigel appears along side Justin Timberlake and Peyton Manning in Sony's 2010 national ad campaign. In addition, he has lent his personality to television and feature film cameos, event hosting and presenting, including 2007, 2008 and 2010 Emmys on Fox, the 2008 and 2009 Go Green galas in New York, the Genesis Awards and the 2010 Global Fashion Awards. Nigel also appeared as a celebrity judge for the 2008 Miss America Pageant and had cameo roles on several TV series including, The Young & The Restless, Privileged, Stylista, Style Her Famous and Ugly Betty as well as a cameo role in the feature film, Arthur (2011) with Jennifer Garner, Russell Brand, Nick Nolte and Helen Mirren.

Barker authored his first and much anticipated book, Nigel Barkerʼs Beauty Equation: Revealing a Better and More Beautiful You. The book guides the reader through a series of self-portrait and journaling challenges, which help the reader to discover their inner beauty by building confidence and self-esteem and in turn, enhancing their outer beauty.

Nigel Barker lives in New York City with his wife, Cristen and their two children Jack and Jasmine.
