The Beauty of Retrospect: Jacki Adams

When I first posted a picture of  1980s model Jacki Adams in August 2007, someone left a comment on my asking if I had more pictures of her, and I said I'd keep my eye out for some.  Well, it took nearly five years, but I have a couple more pictures of Jacki Adams to share! :-) 

Jacki Adams's style could best be described as "classy cool," not unlike that of her modeling peer Dianne deWitt.  She worked with all the best fashion photographers in the business - Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Arthur Elgort, Francesco Scavullo, Patrick Demarchelier (you know, the usual suspects!) - and appeared on the covers of magazines such as CosmopolitanGlamour, and New Woman.     

Jacki Adams, now an skilled outdoorswoman who climbs mountains, hikes trails and runs marathons, was probably best known in the eighties as the face of Elizabeth Arden cosmetics, which she represented for five years.  Both of the pictures above are taken from the Elizabeth Arden ad campaign. :-)
