Things ain't what they used to be. (In fact, they never was.)
Okay. Name a celebrity, a top model that was never drunk in public, was boring in the tabloids, was frugal with her earnings and went home early from the parties, without a tatoo. Well you already know the answer. Kathy Ireland - top model to role model. If only there were lots of YouTube movies of her for young women to watch and mold into their lives... Heck, men too.
Kathy Ireland - Fashion Model to Inspirational Role Model
The following is from Askmen.com:
"Kathy Ireland was born March 8th, 1963, in Santa Barbara, California. Her adolescence foreshadowed her future busy career as a wife, mother, businesswoman, humanitarian, actress, and model.
Why we like her?
She is like the girl next door, except instead of seeing her in the backyard sun bathing, we usually see her spread across a magazine frolicking in Tahiti on a photo shoot. Why can't we frolick too?
Why is she famous?
She landed on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition 3 times, and totalled 13 appearances in the magazine.
Her workout videos were best-sellers alongside Jane Fonda and Cindy Crawford. She is also a part-time actress.
Kathy Ireland is a giant. Not because she's almost six feet tall (that's 1,80m for all you metric people), but because for a period of time, she was the world's biggest model until Cindy Crawford and her million-dollar mole came along."
No no....don't run down to KMart to get these bargains, the ads are from 1996.
The swimsuit photographs at top and bottom appeared in and belong to Sports Illustrated and are the exceptionally fine work of Marc Hispard and Robert Huntzinger respectively.
