Willow Bay (born Kristine Carlin Bay), was the perfect all-American face for Estée Lauder in the latter half of the eighties, but then the Lauder company decided that she was maybe a little too all-American for the international image it wanted to project.
Both the black-and-white photo above (ooh - strapless! :-) ) and the color photo below are from Ms. Bay's stint as the "Estée Lauder Woman," which lasted from 1985 to 1989.
But, as noted when I first featured Ms. Bay in April 2009, the Lauder company's loss was journalism's gain, and after several stints on broadcast and cable TV news, she now edits non-political stories for the Huffington Post.
And even though she spends less time behind a camera, be it still or motion picture, she's still beautiful, as the recent picture above clearly shows.
