Tommie Cross-Holmes

Model. Influencer. #BlessedNotStressed.


A contagious personality that screams both laid back and fun is why model, actor and social influencer Tommie Cross-Holmes is part of the Sperry Crew. When we met him in California on the set of a photoshoot, we were instantly charmed by his overall positivity, his infectious smile, and yes, his personal sense of style (comfy, casual, yet put together – something he coined in our Q&A as “prep with pizzazz”).

As a Sperry Ambassador, Tommie stands for the notion that “prep” is what you make it – that Prep is truly For All. Get to know why here.

Describe yourself in three words.
Blessed not stressed.
Where are you from, and where do you live now?
I am from Houston, Texas. I currently live in Los Angeles, California.
How did you get into modeling?
My mom kept asking me to go visit agencies, but I was hesitant. Then one day I was like, ok, let's do this. I got signed in Houston with Page Parkes, and they have an annual review where agencies from all over come to see the talent. I ended up getting signed in NYC immediately after.
What’s your connection to Sperry?
I shot the Sperry F/W ’18 campaign, and I am a huge fan of the shoes and what the brand stands for.

What does prep mean to you?
Prep to me is someone's style with a little pizzazz.
Would you consider your style classic prep, modern prep, or prep with a twist?
My style would have to be prep with a twist. These days, I just want to wear comfy clothes, which usually means dressed up sweats.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
If I could have any super power, it would be the ability to copy other super powers I come into contact with, because no one wants just one super power!
Who do you most admire, and why?
I admire those who are not afraid to take the leap and pursue their dreams and aspirations, because many are afraid to fail, and it takes great courage to know that and keep going.
Name one thing you never leave home without.
I never leave home without a positive outlook for my day.
