This is the Frequently Asked Questions file for alt.supermodels.  It tries
to address the standard questions, so the regular readers won't have to
see them again.  The information is mostly drawn from postings to this
group, but a lot has been contributed directly by individual readers and
by my own fashion magazine purchasing habit.  Some of these entries may be
hopelessly out of date and for that I do apologize.  However, if you see
something that is really bad and you are a fan of that model, just send me
a copy of the entry and your corrections. 

This FAQ still needs hard data; addresses (fashion houses, magazines, 
catalogs, fan clubs, etc), birthdates, measurements, earning power, names 
of the new models, and whatever else can help us all follow them.
I have noticed from posts that the FAQ does not address older models from
even the early 70's and 80's.  Any fans out there with information should
send it to me so I can include it.  I recently acquired Arthur Elgort's 
Model Manual and Michael Gross's book Model:The ugly business of 
beautiful women and will attempt to cross check using those books.

I also have been in contact with Paxti Pastor (ceo) of the
http://WWW.SUPERMODEL.COM site and there are some interesting things afoot 
there.

Campbell In Soup

NAOMI NO-SHOW:  Organizers of this Friday's benefit for the not-for-profit
AIDS service group Houseing Works aresn't feelin too charitable about Naomi
Campbell these days.  The bratty supermodel is notably absent from the list
of African-American models hosting the organization's SOul '95 benefit at
Industria Superstudio--an all-star line-up that includes Iman, Veronica Webb,
Beverly Peele, Karen Alexander, and Roshumba.  Sources say organizers
purposely scratched Naomi from the list after she snubbed last year's event.
  "As a host, all she had to do was show up, and she didn't," one insider
said.  "we read in the paper the next morning that she went to another party
instead."

Carangi, Gia
   supermodel in the 70's. 

Excerpts from _MODEL: The ugly business of beautiful women.  by Michael Gross
   bisexual drug abuser who had a short but highly visably career.
   Died of AIDS in 1986 
   a Philadelphia teenager whose wild ways and sultry looks made her a
   favorite of photographers from Francesco Scavullo to Chris von
   Wangenheim, who specialized in pictures that captured the madness
   of the disco era.
  "The latest topic of conversation in modeling is the resurgence of drugs--
  particularly Heroin--among a clique of models who, in macabre homage, 
  reportably call themselves Gia's Girls, in honor of Gia Carangi, the 
  bisexual addict who had a brief career in modeling and then died of AIDS."

  For more information about her please read the following book:
  Stephen Fried's "Thing of Beauty-The Tragedy of Supermodel Gia".

    actress with several film credits including "The Rocketeer",

Crawford, Cindy Ann
    Height: 5'9-1/2"
    Bust-waist-hips: 34B-24-35
    Dress size: 8
    Hair color: Light Brown
    Eye color: Dark Brown
    Shoe size: 9-1/2
    Born: 20 Feb 1966 in De Kalb, Illinois, USA
    Agency: ELITE
    Schooling: Northwestern, Chemical Engineering (1 sem)
    Modeling Break: ELITE "Look of the year contest", 1982
    Probably the single most widely recognized supermodel.  Cindy was
    the spokesperson for Pepsi for a while, has her own exercise video,
    and her own show on MTV.  She's also done at least three calendars,
    and of the profit, half (I believe) goes toward fighting leukemia.
    Had a three year $3 million contract with Revlon.  Also appeared in
    print ads for JH Collectables and Capezio Bags.  She appeared in 
    a series of lingerie posters for Hennes & Mauritz in Europe.  The
    Norway police tore many of them down because they feared drivers
    were being too distracted.  She has said she feels too old for
    runway modeling, and wishes to cut back to part time modelling.
    Cindy is not doing any calendar for 1994.  She is said to be busy
    doing and promoting her exercise/work-out video.  The same company
    who made the last 4 calendars has brought out the Cindy Crawford
    1994 European Edition Calendar which has various pics taken from
    her last four calendars.  Also, there is another calendar produced
    by an English firm which is of fairly poor quality (its only 12
    month while the European Edition is 16 months).
    [ Addresses for the two companies, CULTRE SHOCK and DAY DREAM 
    CALENDARS, are in the addresses section of this FAQ. ]
    She was married to actor Richard Gere in Dec '91 at the Little
    Church of the West in Las Vegas, by Rev.  Wes McPherson.  They
    using wedding bands twisted from chewing gum wrappers.  Cindy 
    said, during an interview, they plan on having a child soon.
    Cindy is frequently rumored to be bisexual, and having an affair
    with Christy Turlington.  In '91, they were photographed while
    kissing behind the Roxy nightclub in New York.  The rumors have
    intensified since Cindy appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair
    shaving k.d. lang, a confirmed lesbian.  
    Appeared topless in the July 1988 Playboy.  Quote: "I don't mind if
    someone thinks a picture of me decorates their wall nicely.  It's
    weird when you think what people might be doing to it.  But if just
    the way I look can make someone feel good, that's a pretty easy way
    for me to bring them some pleasure.  I just don't want to hear
    about graphics details, you know." US April 1993.
    MTV House of Style (5 years on the air)
    Top grossing model of 1994 with over 6 million dollars earned.
    Has broken off with Richard Gere.  Still does runway and print work, 
    major contracts for Revlon and other companies.
    When first starting out Cindy was called "Baby Gia" after now dead Gia
    Carangi, the main difference being that Cindy was wholesome and Gia
    died from her lifestyle.  The resemblence between them in the early 
    years is uncanny.

Meghan is a gorgeous young lady, and also, very happily married. Her hubby
is Liam Dalton, who runs a stock investment firm in NY where they both
live.  Although Meghan can be found modeling in Paris and Milan, she is
almost always in the Chanel and Oldham shows in NY. Her most recent move
has been to dye her hair red, therefore confirming her nickname, the
"Catwalk Chameleon", which she earned from her many varied looks (ala
Linda Evangelista). She has been Blonde and streaked prior to her tred,
but her red did for her what Nadja Auermans platinum did for her.  From
what I know, she's had an interesting past -- her father was a diplomat so
she lived in India, Beirut, Greece, Berlin, and started modeling after she
didn't get into her first-choice college. She'd been offered a contract
after entering the Elite Look of the Year contest. She married Liam in 1994.
     
Dubosfertus, Nadege

    who has one son named Rocco.  She was married in '92 in an Azzedine
    Alaia mini dress with push-up bodice.  Nadege appears regularly in
    American Vogue and on the runways.  She can be seen in ads for Chanel.

    Linda is one of the top five supermodels of the world.  She
    recently joked that she wouldn't get out of bed for less than
    $10,000 a day.  She appears in ads for Barney's New York (with Kyle
    MacLachlan), and in ads for Kenar.  She is also reported to be one
    of the hardest working models of the moment which could partly
    account for her great success.  Married to Gerald Marie, president of
    the ELITE agency in France, but getting a divorce.  Going with Kyle
    MacLaughlin(Twin Peaks, The Hidden, Roswell, Dune) who goes to all her 
    show appearances.  Tested to take over Estee Lauder campaign from

    seconds each and took home a check for a cool $10,000.  Her career 
    took off in the 80's due to a haircut by infamous Garren from NYC (of 
    allure magazine.)  Since this time her hair color and style varies 
    almost for every runway and print job she does proving that she's 
    working hard to stay fresh and popular among the designers.

Recent mentions of her smoking habit in the alt.supermodels newsgroup:

+We spotted a picture of Linda in a German mag in 1993 "sporting" cigarette
+burns down her back! She was wearing a backless dress and showing them 
+off.  She was there with Kyle at the time. 

>Sure! There are many pictures of Linda smoking! I have seen a lot!
>I read an interview as well as a special edition of a European MAX
>talking about Supermodels back in the time when we called them
>"Top Models" (kinda miss that time back in '90) and in the Linda
>description there was something saying "She smokes 20 MARLBOROs
>a day!" (that is a full packet). I thought most of you out there
>knew that!!!! In that same magazine there was a small picture of
>her lighting up a cigarette. 

|If she still smokes, she probably doesn't smoke as much. She's had lung
|trouble, and she had to have surgery for a collapsed lung in (I think)
|1991.
