Eighties model Valerie Lohr

Valerie Lohr was one of the most sought-after models in the early 1980s.

She was known for her outspokenness about her profession, particularly the absurdity of it. :-D "I still can't rationalize," she said about her annual salary in 1981, "why I make more than the President of the United States does."

Given the past eight years, that shouldn't be a problem for any model anymore. :-O

Model Deborah Kidd

Deborah Kidd is one of the many anonymous models who appear on catwalks and in print ads but don't date rock stars or hang out at Studio 54. Maybe her inclusion on this blog will change that. :-D

A native of Seattle, Kidd now lives and works in Paris, where she has appeared in many fashion shows, as well as TV commercials for car companies. She is easily a model of the highest class and caliber.

French actress Isabelle Huppert

Isabelle Huppert has been a staple in French movies for over thirty years.

Her film credits include 1982's Coup de Foudre (Entre Nous in America), about a close female friendship in postwar France, and 2001's Le pianiste (The Piano Teacher), about a sexually repressed musician.

Like many European actresses, Isabelle Huppert longed to make it in Hollywood. She should have been careful of what she wished for; she appeared in the infamous Heaven's Gate in 1980. Asked about that disaster, Huppert said, in reference to herself and French actresses in general, "We are fragile but we do not collapse."

Another American movie she appeared in, the 1987 thriller The Bedroom Window, was better received.

Comedian Tina Fey

Tina Fey is best known as a writer and performer for "Saturday Night Live," where she worked from 1997 to 2005.

She's also the star of and the inspiration behind 30 Rock," a sitcom about a sketch comedy show based in new York's Rockefeller. The Pennsylvania-born Fey has also written and starred in movies such as Mean Girls and Baby Mama.

The acerbic, witty Fey recently made news with her skewering portrayal of vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor Sarah Palin, whom she resembles. She's brought a great deal of experience to the role; having worked a great deal with Jimmy Fallon, she knows how to portray a schmuck.
