Some more images I scanned from the August issue of Glamour 1980 Photos by Claude Mougin, and the close-up is a vintage Cutex ad.

Covers of Bitten from bellazon.com.

For those who don't know, she was friends with Gia, and once dated Warren Beatty (apparently for more than a day).

The news arrived today that Bitten Knudsen, a Danish-born fashion model, darling of the disco era, best buddy of the famous train wreck Gia Carangi, and one of my favorite models of all time died in her sleep on March 22 in Denmark. Bitten, who was featured in my book, Model, was an unapologetic bad girl who called herself The Kid and the multitude of men who chased her dogs. ďAs bad as you are, thatís how good you can be at your job,Ē she said. She was good bad, not evil. R.I.P., beauty. from http://www.mgross.com/gripebox/once-bitten/

It is a great idea to have a thread for her! As she was very successful in her time. I always remember reading about her in 'Thing of Beauty' (Gia biography) that when her and Gia were on a photo shoot in the middle of the ocean, the blinding sun caused Bitten to become sunburned.
