The Beauty of Retrospect, November Model Edition: Catherine Roberts

It takes a model of great elegance and class to wear upscale clothes in black-and-white print ads. And in the 1970s, fewer models were more suited to the task than Catherine Roberts.

This is Catherine Roberts wearing a fur stole to complement a very sexy dress.  The photo is from a 1976 ad for Maximilian Furs, known for their rather direct slogan, "It's got to be a Maximilian."

As with many models, though, Catherine Roberts is not like the persona she projects in her ads - least of all, this ad.  You'll be pleased to know that she's an animal rights activist and would never wear fur in real life. :-)
