She continues to be one of the most sought-after models in an otherwise fickle industry . This, along with her many accomplishments, she has proved to truly stand the test of time.
Off the runway, Angela has appeared in Roman Coppola’s CQ in 2002 and the cult film Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang in 2005. Angela has also took on the role of host for Lifetime’s 2012 show, Project Runway All Stars.
Soon after her 2002 film debut, she gave birth to her first son, Dakota. After her maternity leave, she completely and sustainably restored a 95-foot tugboat and docked it in the Hudson River outside of Manhattan. In 2005, she had her second son, Sebastian, and Angela put her career on hold again to become a strong advocate for raising children “naturally,” with an emphasis on family values.
Angela is an active environmentalist and health advocate. In 2001, she founded The Collage Foundation Inc., 501c3, a non-profit that stimulates environmental awareness and provides resources for positive change.

When Angela went to Bali in 2008, and visited the green-design compound of the luxury jewelry brand JOHN HARDY and first established a connection with the company after discovering that their environmental credentials and commitment mirrored her own. From there, a relationship sprouted, and Angela designed a line of charity bracelets with JOHN HARDY, whose sales benefitted ForestEthics. In 2010, she became the face of JOHN HARDY, appearing in all advertising campaigns through 2011. In 2011, Angela’s relationship with JOHN HARDY naturally expanded to the creation of the Angela by John Hardy collections for QVC.
