Archive-Name: supermodels-faq Last-Modified: 2003/10/27 URL: <http://www2.gol.com/users/graham/faq.html> copyright: (c) 1994-2003 Graham Watt Maintainer: Graham Watt graham at GOL dot com Version: 3.01 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 Some of these entries may be hopelessly out of date and for that I do apologize.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. ##################### Contents: Lists of models and data.

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."

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". #Carter, Lynda# Now retired, but was one of Maybeline's biggest models a few years ago.

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. #D# #Davis, Geena# Height: at least 6 ft tall Weight: average build, athletic with average body fat ratio Hair color: Has changed from red to blond to dirty blond, lots of dye.

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.

One of the more controversial supermodels, primarily because of her unusually low weight during the early part of her career. (she typified the "waif" models). Some people feel she is unattractively thin, and fear idolizing her may cause anorexia in impressionable teenage girls. However, she also has a large number of fans, and receives a large number of modeling jobs. Her contract with Calvin Klein is supposedly worth over 1 million. Her unusual appearance (and possibly her willingness to appear nude, "It's just work") have, in a very short time, made her almost as widely recognized as Cindy Crawford. She is a little too short and thin to model clothes designed for the "standard" model's build. This makes her less versatile and may limit her career's lifespan. She appeared in an '89 British sexploitation film "The Inferno". She chain smokes Marlboros. She has broken with her photographer boyfriend, Mario Sorrenti, and is currently involved in a 'long term' relationship with actor, Johnny Depp. Kate has recently (May 1995) published a hardback picture book called 'Kate' which is made up of pictures chosen by herself. This book is published in the UK by Pavilion Books Limited. The book reference number is ISBN 1 85793 685X and is available in the UK from May 95 and is supposedly available in the US in August 95. There exists at least two picture series' of JPG images of Kate, called KATENR##.JPG and also KMOSS###.JPG, both done by Neil Rodgers with the 'almost' famous 'GAP ON!' logo. Most of these images and many others are available from WWW site <http://marlowe.wimsey.com/~jamacht/Kate/Pictures/> Kate's favourite designers are John Galliano, Helmut Lang, Martin Margiela and Vivienne Westwood.

(August, December 1994 SI Calendar) "Cool and commanding on the page, Ashley is an incorrigible cutup between takes, keeping the Swimsuit shoot loose and relaxing tensions. As creative as she is funny, Ashley enjoys such off-camera pastimes as painting, interior decorating and cooking. You may also detect the ballerina in Ashely from her fluid poses and her graceful lines, which extend naturally from her warm personallity."

Subject of large argument in alt.supermodels regarding disparaging comments from J-P Gaultier, Jil Sander, Ellen Von Unwerth. Fans and critics took sides and shot up the place. She's still Claudia, but the fickle fashion press seems to be tired of her. Even Ellen Von Unwerth has admitted Claudia is not as much a "model". Claudia is a "look" If she changes it, she is not what "Claudia" is. Outside that, don't underestimate a girl who was at the top of her class, and on the road to becoming an attorney when she was discovered. She speaks several languages, and was raised well by her father, who is a very successful attorney, and her mother. Money is not that new, nor important. Fiance David made $33 million last year. They could both retire at will. She's in business with Elle and Naomi Campbell. They have a restaurant.

Then she dissed her image and changed it to grunge when she began a relationship with rocker Axl Rose. The demise of that relationship, together with the birth of her second son, and the supposed impending marriage this summer to publisher Peter Brant (the father of the child), has turned her career into high gear. Voted this year by Paris's MATCH Magazine as the 2nd most beautiful model in the world (Claudia was 1st), that makes her the world's sexiest mom. Not bad for a model who started her career 10 years ago (age 16, when she was reported to be having an affair with John Casablancas, the CEO of ELITE Modeling). [As you can see, there is some doubt as to her correct age. If someone can dig this up and set this issue to rest, I would appreciate it.] #Shepard, Cybil# Height: 5'9" (175 cm) Former model, actress.

Krissy was a popular model in Australia, having done numerous covers for Australian girls' magazines. <http://www.supermodel.com/> used to have her home page. "She's Young, She's Dead, She's Net" Krissy Taylor died tragically last month, but her scantily clad image still lives on the Internet, where her mother, Barbara Taylor, is using photos of her dead daughter to generate some cold, hard cash. Two months before Krissy's death, the elder Taylor put together a Web site called "The Supermodel Home Page," which charges advertisers up to $30,000 a month (apparently no takers yet). Taylor is promising the arrival of "at least six more significant supermodels" to the site, but for now, Krissy remains the only featured mannequin. "Ironically, she was the first model we selected," Barbara Taylor's partner Patxi Pastor says seriously. But while the home page now includes a somber Krissy "memorial," the real attraction for the Internet's largely young, male Web surfers is the sexy pinup style bikini shots of the late 17-year old. Pastor claims the site draws more than a million visitors a week. And despite some criticism, Pastor says she and Taylor won't tone the shots down. "In this business, pictures like that are peices of art. They are sensually, not sexually, explicit. This is similar to people looking at shots of Marilyn Monroe." --"New York" magazine, August 14, 1995 #Taylor, Niki# Height: 5'11.5" Weight: 128 pounds Bust-waist-hips: 34b 24 34 Hair color: brown Eye color: hazel Born: 74? age 19 (june 94 cosmo) Agency: IMG Models, NY Earning power: $15,000 per day Nationality: American Niki is head of her own company called Niki Inc.

Hair: Black, Long. ##################### Common questions and answers not handled in the previous section. #What is a supermodel?# This is a major point of discussion in this group. Some factors that may be involved are earning power, name recognition, face recognition, frequency of runway appearances, frequency of magazine covers, appearances in Sports Illustrated, calenders, TV appearances, movies. #Supermodel?# This means that the supermodels have the most attributes going for them instead of just having a really great look, or a really good attitude. When it comes down to it, beauty is subjective. "What makes these models we call 'super'models stand out is their overall excellence. Their good looks, extreme professionalism, their wonderfully friendly personality, and their ability to give the photographer exactly what he wants. #Why are all (or most) supermodels tall and thin?# There are variations, but most models are about the same size, height (~5'9 and above), and weight. Most of the designs are for very thin women (why is another good question). Tall women appear thinner than short ones. Women with small faces are supposed to photograph "better". If you put a head on a woman who is 5'10" - 6', it will look smaller than the same beautiful head on a woman who is 5'2" or so. Designers can sew clothes for the "standard" model. Then they can easily substitute models if they think a particular dress would look better with a different model, or if someone is late for a show. Uniformity lets them "ensemble" well with other models. No one has to stand on box. The standard height may be on the tall side to ease posing with men for whom height is also an issue. #Who's the woman in the Meatloaf video?# Dana Patrick. However, the voice belongs to a woman identified only as "Mrs. Loud". #What's the name of the magazine Alyssa Milano posed nude in?# The complete title is "Bikini". Volume 1, Issue 1. Completely sold out, no back issues. (hint. This magazine is SQUARE in shape.) #Who is the girl in the Aerosmith videos?# Alicia Silverstone was in the Aerosmith vidoes "Cryin'" and "Amazing", and starred in the movie, "The Crush". She was 17. #Who is the girl in the John Cougar Mellancamp video "Wild Night"?# The woman who plays the taxi driver, with the titilating clothing donning is none other than model Shauna Zadrick. #What is that movie "Inferno" that features a lot of models?# It's some short-stories with lightly dressed topmodels. Filmed by fashion model turned photographer Ellen von Unwerth. With among others: Kate Moss, Tyra Banks, Shana Zadrick, Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen, Emma Sjoeberg, Amber Smith. It has appeared on German Television and other stations in Europe, but not in the US except for in excerpts. #What are better terms for all those models? ie. a taxonomy of model ranking.# (excerpted from pins&needles in Harper's Bazaar by Woody Hochswender) "Remember the good old days when men were men, and models were either just plain models or supermodels? Well, there is now a more elaborate system of model categories to accomodate the glut of new, old, and veteran talent. Lauren Hutton, Rosie Vela, Patti Hansen, Beverly Johnson, and other over 40 stars are now called the Ultramodels. The new Supermodels are Kate, Amber, Nadja, Shalom, and Emma. The former Supermodels ==Christy, Naomi, Linda et al.== are now known as Megamodels. Get all that? The new nomenclature apparently facilitates discussions at agencies, fashion shoots, and editorial meetings. (At meetings of some of my *tre`s gentils* male friends, there is only one catagory that comes up: Hot Young Models.)" ##################### Addresses.

A lot of information about model's movie appearances is available from the movie database servers. One of the best is "Cardiff's Movie Database Browser", available through the Web with URL: "<http://www.cm.cf.ac.uk/Movies/moviequery.html>" This Cardiff's site is defunct, but it has become the IMDB website. http://www.imdb.com/ ##################### How to download and view the pictures. Read the FAQ for alt.binaries.pictures.d. If your site doesn't get that group, or expires it quickly, look in news.answers, or ftp it from rtfm.mit.edu. Jim Howard has done an excellent job of explaining this, much better than I could. He describes the necessary steps and programs on a wide variety of systems, and tells you where to find them on the net. Supermodel pictures are usually available in alt.binaries.pictures.supermodels (usually abbreviated a.b.p.s or abps) and alt.binaries.pictures.celebrities (abpc). ## NEW YORK--(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)--Sept. 13, 1995--Next Management, the New York City-based modeling agency, is distributing the first interactive CD-ROM for model selection, supplementing the traditional promotional book, it was announced today by Next co-owners Faith Kates and Joel Wilkenfeld. Next is the first agency to commission a CD-ROM featuring full-motion video. Viewers can employ the interactive medium to its fullest. Each model's entire book, and her complete stats are available at the click of the mouse from anywhere within the application. Clicking on Yasmeen Ghauri hijacking a taxi for example, brings up Yasmeen's book and stats. This, plus an efficient search and sort facility, makes the Next CD-ROM product stylish, entertaining and practical. "This innovation provides clients with the unique ability to review a model's skill in both still photography and full-motion video environments," said Kates. Added Wilkenfeld, "We feel the convenience of this resource is invaluable to our busy clientele and provides them with a more comprehensive overview of each model's strengths and abilities." Formatted for MAC, the interactive resource is being distributed to art directors at ad agencies and magazines, model editors, catalog publishers, photographers and designers. Accompanying the CD-ROM is the traditional promotional book containing the models still photographs and statistics. Derek Penn, president of mindandmedia, inc., a New York based interactive media software firm, designed the story ideas and application architecture in collaboration with the noted photographer/director Thierry Le Goues and art director Doug Lloyd. Shot on location in the streets, prisons, peep-shows and back alleys of New York City, the CD-ROM and book have a distinct high-fashion fantasy esthetic. In business for just six years, and with affiliate offices in Paris, Milan and Canada, and branches in South Beach, Fla. and Los Angeles, Next is now among the largest agencies in the country. In the fall of 1994 they moved into their own building in Soho. Among the women represented by Next are Yasmeen Ghauri, Angie Everhart, Estelle Hallyday, Judit Masco, Tanya Fourie, Stacey Williams, Rebecca Romijn, Milla and Brandi. --30--csm/ny* CONTACT: Jacqueline Becher Public Relations Jackie Becher, 212/371-0415 ##################### Where to get pictures of supermodels on the net. ## this is all probably defunct now. ## ##Use GOOGLE IMAGES to find stuff on the WWW.## Picture files can be obtained over the internet using ftp, fsp, or mail to one of the ftp-by-mail servers. For more info, see Tom Czarnik's "FTP List - FAQ" posting to news.answers. Some FTP servers with supermodel info are: ftp.sunet.fe:/pub/pictures/people/women/ <ftp://ftp.sunet.fe:/pub/pictures/people/women/> louie.udel.edu:/pub/supermodels louie only has small "mug-shot" pictures of supermodel's faces, some copies of the posted lists of where to find pictures of particular supermodels, and archives of this newsgroup. <ftp://nic.funet.fi/pub/pics/gif/pics/people/> 250- Only users from within NORDUnet networks are allowed 250- to retrieve these files without limits.

He wrote the entry for Kate in this FAQ. ##################### Standard for posting pictures. Again, read Jim Howard's FAQ for alt.binaries.pictures.d He clearly describes the current standards for splitting articles (and why you should), how to title them, helpful programs, etc. In particular, look for xmitBin, an automated splitting-posting program. Pictures should be posted to alt.binaries.pictures.supermodels, not alt.supermodels. Many sites do not get abps because of "moralistic" censorship, worries over copyright suites, low disk space, or low net bandwidth. However, if pictures are posted to alt.supermodels, then it will also become blocked. [ Note to any admins reading this: Please don't cut off entire groups to save bandwidth/space, instead ask your feeder to place an article size limit on your feed. That will accomplish your goal, but not subject you to irrate users screaming "censorship". It will also protect you from idiots posting 5 Meg bible quotes to normal discussion groups (which actually happened about a year ago). ] Auto-decoders (such as Mark Stantz's "aub") are becoming far more common. These programs scan all new articles in a list of newsgroups, find the picture pieces, sort them, assemble them, process them, and drop the finished picture files in a directory. The only problem is they demand that the subject lines follow the standard. If you don't follow the standard, a lot of people will never even see your posting; so why did you bother to post? ##################### Where to get the latest version of this FAQ. Latest version will be posted to alt.supermodels, alt.answers, and news.answers. I am counting upon long term storage at FAQ repositories on various Gopher and WWW sites. Go to <http://www.yahoo.com> and ask that service to find "FAQ" and you should get lots of hits, some will be large repositories of the FAQS. WWW: URL: "<http://www2.gol.com/graham/faq.html>" version 3.0 FAQ site: http:www.cis.ohio-state.edu/Hypertext/Faq/usenet/Top.html ##################### How to contribute if you don't have usenet posting access. www.google.com GROUPS for one. ##################### History and purpose of alt.supermodels and this FAQ. alt.supermodels was created (at louie.udel.edu anyway) on 30 July 92, by a newgroup control message from umalexa9@ccu.umanitoba.ca <mailto:umalexa9@ccu.umanitoba.ca> (Edward W. Alexander). The original purpose was discussion of supermodels. Then someone realized that supermodels are known through their pictures, so it is appropriate to discuss photographs here. That led to posting pictures, so everyone could be talking about the same thing. The end result seems to be FLAME WARS. |From: brinkley@cs.utexas.edu <mailto:brinkley@cs.utexas.edu> (Paul Brinkley) |Subject: Re: Where are all the gifs |Date: Mon Mar 01 11:56:16 EST 1993 | |We just got through a pretty long and hard discussion concerning this. |Apparently alt.supermodels was NOT created with massive picture-posting |in mind. Your post could possibly touch off another flame war. |From: FallenAngel@not.in.heaven.com <mailto:FallenAngel@not.in.heaven.com> (Fallen Angel) |Subject: Who is NOT a supermodel. |Date: 20 Jul 1993 03:19:06 GMT |Summary: This group is not alt.fan.bimbo.chick | |Some people should look at the name of this group before posting. It is |near impossible to create an algorithm that will separate people (mostly |women) into two cases, supermodel and not-supermodel, and have it work |perfectly. We can state, with total certainty, that some people are NOT |supermodels. | |Tanya Roberts is NOT a supermodel. |Dana Plato is NOT a supermodel. |Some-chick-who-had-a-role-in-a-movie is NOT a supermodel. |The Double Mint gum blow-job bimbo is NOT a supermodel. |The Bud girls are NOT supermodels. | |This newsgroup is not alt.fan.chick.hot. Yes, it is unmoderated and there |is no authority who can maintain topicality. Still, I ask for a bit of |common sense and courtesy. Respect the bounds of this group. | |This group was created to discuss (mostly) women who have excelled in a |particular career, modelling. This means a focus on the medium of |photography. This means an association with the fashion industry. This |means runway work. *From: comtech@nznet.gen.nz <mailto:comtech@nznet.gen.nz> (Ryan Marshall) *Playmates and actresses are nice, but they're simply NOT supermodels, *and therefore do not belong in the FAQ. ##################### Credits.
