Playboy (April, 2000)

Bijou Lily Phillips (b. April 1, 1980, Greenwich, Connecticut, USA) is an American actress, former model, and one-time pop-singer. She is the daughter of John Phillips of The Mamas and the Papas and his then-wife Genevieve Waite, a South African model. The name "Bijou", which is French for "jewel," was taken from the song "My Petit Bijou" by Lambert, Hendricks and Ross.

Phillips had a tumultuous childhood, and began modelling at an early age. She appeared on the cover of Interview when she was 13 and soon became the youngest Vogue cover model when she appeared on the Italian edition. By the age of 15 she was leading an adult life, living in her own apartment in Manhattan and subsisting on her modeling salary. During this time, she became a "wild child" of the New York City party scene, frequenting nightclubs such as Limelight and Spy Bar. Her older sister, Mackenzie, was sometimes seen accompanying Bijou to various fashion shows, playing the role of surrogate parent.

At the age of 17, she was granted a record deal with Almos Records and ended her modelling career; her debut album was titled I'd Rather Eat Glass, a sentiment that expressed her feelings about her former profession. Around the same time as the release of her album in 1999, she began acting in independent films. The following year, she posed nude for Playboy and appeared on the cover of the April, 2000 issue. As of 2005, Phillips continues to act while she records tracks for her second album.

In June 2004, Phillips assaulted Playboy Playmate Nicole Marie Lenz in a Los Angeles nightclub. The fight was broken up by actor Matthew Perry, who later testified on Lenz' behalf. Phillips pleaded no contest to the criminal charges and Lenz has filed a civil suit. She dated actor Elijah Wood.
