For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
Arcieri was born in San Francisco, California, the daughter of an Italian American father and African-American Mother. Arcieri spent the better part of her childhood in Sebastopol, located in California's wine and redwood country. Shyness was a major obstacle in Leila's early life, one that she tried to overcome by throwing herself into high-school cheerleading. Upon graduating from high school, she moved to San Francisco, where she dabbled with both graphic design and photography before becoming a make-up artist.
Arcieri was crowned Miss San Francisco in 1997, and soon after she began appearing in both commercials (including 1-800-COLLECT and Starburst) and music videos with the likes of Boyz II Men, and Q-Tip. Such work eventually brought her to the attention of writer-producer Timothy Stack, who cast her in the role of Jamaica St. Croix in his new series, Son of the Beach, a parody of Baywatch. That same year Leila was selected as the Coors Lite Beer 2000 spokesmodel. She reprised her role in XXX for the Director's Cut release in a short film containing the death of Xander.
In 2005, she was voted #65 on Maxim magazine's Hot 100 list.
