Kim Alexis
Kim Alexis started out in the late 70s. I believe in 1978 - in the then hottest new model mag Italian Harper's Bazaar. She was a big favourite with American Vogue for a few years (1979-1981). Later, she continued to be a favourite with American magazines such as Mademoiselle, Bazaar, Glamour and even Redbook. Kim was an a usual model of the late 70s in the sense that her flawless, cheerful, blonde face was the most coveted look of the day. However, while the late 70s were notoriously decadent....Kim didn't follow that trend. She was brought up strictly and she was devoutly Christian, something even the modeling industry did nothing to change. She has continued to have a somewhat active modeling career and she wrote a book about her life, part of it about her modeling and the trauma she went through when she was modeling with decadent creatues such as Gia (who apparently unsuccessfully hit on Kim).

The latter part of her career has been partly embarrassing since Kim has made ads for the treatment of sore....body parts. :p

She actually was a big time editorial model as well as commercial, she replaced Lauren Hutton as the face of Ultima II. She had so many Vogue, Bazaar, Glamour, Cosmo covers that it was a crime, and was constantly being photographed by Avedon, Penn, and other big time names.

One of Kim's many ads from 1979 - one of the funny ones. (scanned by me)

i just saw her on a early morning tv show promoting some modeling show.. its just so sad how the modeling industry treats a woman as soon as she hits a certain age... has anyone read her book? do you recommend it?

oh my god! i can't believe she has a thread and i just discovered it now! kim is one of the best late 70s and early 80s model. she was really big in that time. she was in every cover, in every editorial, in every campaign... unfortunetely there's just one page. but anyway, i'm still happy that kim has a thread here

^Yes, her thread is too short...here's one of my absolute fave shots of her. Versace from July/August Italian Bazaar 1980, shot by Avedon, scanned by me.
