So can the others but I wanted them to be 80s photos or 1991 latest.
Gia made her first cover in 79 (hello she was 18 in 1978) so her career as a model happened mainly during the 80's (capiche ?) . Janice could also be considered as a face of the 80's . Same for Leslie except that she had a shorter career as a model.

Gia made her first cover in 79 (hello she was 18 in 1978). Janice could also be considered as a face of the 80's . Same for Leslie except that she had a shorter model carreer.
Again she still worked the most layouts in mags in the 1970s. That's just the facts. Sure she worked in the 80s but her rep and life was shot. Yes she got her first cover in 1979 but she got several in 79 & 80 but than she dropped off. Janice has covers in 1975 and had the most work in the 70s too. Thats the decade they are linked too. She like Gia had to take many breaks in the 80s b/c of personal drama.
And Leslie I didn't link her to any decade, so I don't know where you got that idea.

Paulina(1986) who is more of "The face of the 80's" and has been called that photographed by Brain Lanker. I did this thread for girls like her who don't quite fit in the 90s thread or the Vintage thread. She is more 80's thats all, if you've got 80s-91 pics than they are welcomed.

It's amazing the difference between these models and the current crop. Back then models had much larger features. Longer aquiline noses, longer faces, wide mouths, razor-sharp bone structure. Today the look is much more girlish and petite facially. I don't think one is always better than the other, just different.

Interesting statement. I have to say I prefer the older girls to today's. They look more womanly,ideal and unforgettable to me b/c of their flair. Naomi & Christy(1988). Photo Source:scanned by me
