Early life

Bibb was born in Bismarck, North Dakota and raised in Nelson County, Virginia. Her father died when she was three years old. Later, she and her mother, along with her three older sisters, moved to Richmond, Virginia, where she attended an all-girls Catholic high school, Saint Gertrude High School.

In 1990, The Oprah Winfrey Show and the Elite Agency held a nationwide modeling search. Bibb's mother took photos of her then 16-year-old daughter and sent them in. The celebrity judges, John Casablancas, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Iman were impressed and they picked her as the winner.

After finishing her junior year, Bibb flew to New York City and signed a contract with Elite Agency. She modeled over that summer, and went on a trip to Japan. She returned home for her senior year and graduated in 1992. Then she decided to attend the University of Virginia. After a single semester, she dropped out and moved to New York City to pursue a full-time modeling career. Her modelling photographs have appeared in such magazines as Maxim and FHM. She also attended the William Esper acting studio for three years.

Career

Bibb's first film role was in the comedy Private Parts. This was followed by her first television series, where she replaced the departed Susan Walters as the female lead in the second season of The Big Easy. Most critics panned the show and it was canceled months later after low ratings.

In 1999, Bibb had her big break appearing as a lead character on the WB Network television series Popular. The show was a major success among teenagers and led Bibb to more recognizable film roles such as The Skulls and See Spot Run. Since then she has had notable lead or guest roles on TV shows such as ER, Line of Fire and CSI: Miami. Bibb also joined the cast of Crossing Jordan as Detective Lu Simmons until season 6 where her character had become a recurring character and was killed off.

Bibb played Will Ferrell's wife Carley in the hit comedy movie Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. She also played Desiree in the 2007 production Wristcutters: A Love Story. She appeared as a Vanity Fair reporter named Christine Everhart in the 2008 film Iron Man. She was also in the role of Emma in Trick 'r Treat and Maya in the 2008 horror/thriller The Midnight Meat Train. In 2009 Bibb played Sarah Lowell in the 2009 film Law Abiding Citizen.

Bibb can be seen in the TV show Atlanta in the role of Jessica, opposite Freddie Prinze, Jr. In the 2009 comedy Confessions of a Shopaholic, she portrayed the rival of the main character, played by Isla Fisher. Bibb is also starring in a new movie called Miss Nobody, for which she also serves as co-producer. She also had a pivotal recurring role in Kings on NBC as Katrina Ghent.

Bibb is a spokesmodel for Revlon for Almay Pure Blends.

Personal life

Bibb is a supporter of Friends of El Faro,[1] a grassroots non-profit that helps raise money for Casa Hogar Sion, an orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico.

Bibb is a cousin of Bob Bibb of Lifetime Television.

Bibb is close friends with her Popular co-star Carly Pope and The Skulls co-star Joshua Jackson.[citation needed]
