Phoenix started her career at the age of 15 and has starred in (and is the face of) commercials for American Swiss Jewellery, Nivea, Alberto VO5, multi-billion dollar Aria (Casino) (Las Vegas), Transitions lenses, Volvic and Veet.


She worked as an international fashion model for Munich Models, Why Not Model Agency – Milan, Model Management – Hamburg, Ice Model Management – Cape Town and Success Models – Paris.

In September 2005, 2006 and in 2010, she was the cover girl of Cosmopolitan magazine. She has also known as a daredevil after she starred in the European TV ad for Fa showergel, skydiving topless from the heavens.

She was then chosen to be the cover girl in the German men’s magazine Maxim and then the cover girl for American Maxim the year after.
