The modeling world is not just a glitzy, 24-hour jet-setting party for waifish ingenues, hobknobbing with influential photographers and couture designers. No, for many wide-eyed starlets and middle-aged housewives, it's a life of backroom portrait studios, dodgy lighting, and if it's draws on the floor - the cover of a men's magazine is guaranteed.
As we appreciate both ends of the spectrum, we're honored to present a rare glimpse at some vintage shoots representing the lesser end - one from the mid-1960's, and one from the 1980's.
"They are all gorgeous, but only one has what it takes".
Not much is known about our 80's set. The negatives were unearthed inside a Tampa storage unit belonging to an acquaintance of Roger Delfont (since deceased). The photographer is listed as A.J. Hollister. By the looks of things, these ropey looking lovelies got together one Saturday afternoon at a park in Chatsworth, California.
