Bijou was born on April 1, 1980, to The Mamas and the Papas frontman John Phillips and South African singer Geneviève Waïte.
She got her first taste of the industry from a young age when she briefly modeled around the age of 13 years old. A few years later, she made the cover of Vogue Italia in 1995. Throughout her modeling career, she's appeared in many popular publications from Interview to Playboy.
Bijou's breakout acting role was in the 1999 flick Black and White. The following year, she played the role of Estrella Starr in Almost Famous.
She is notable for her comedic role as serial killer Lucy Carlyle on Raising Hope. She has also booked guest appearances on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Hawaii Five-O, as well as starring in Hostel Part II and Made for Each Other, which she acted in alongside her husband.
