Lauren Hutton

I did this polaroid of Lauren Hutton, last september, during the NY Fashion's Night Out at the Giorgio Armani Madison Avenue Store.
Lauren Hutton was so kind and lovely. I still can't believe I talked to her!

Lauren is a former Supermodel-turned-actress who played her looks into one of the major modeling careers of the 1970s and 80s.

-1960 Moved to New York; worked for a time as a Playboy bunny during the day only because of her age; left after a while because the city terrified her (dates approximate)
-1965 Returned to NYC; got a job as the house model at Christian Dior for $50 per week
-1966 Discovered by legendary "Vogue" magazine editor Diana Vreeland; appeared on the cover of "Vogue" several dozen times over the next several years; often photographed by the famous and influential Richard Avedon
-1968 Film acting debut, "Paper Lion"
