The Beauty of Retrospect, November Model Edition: Clotilde

This is glamour photo of legendary model Kristin Clotilde Holby, but to leave it at that would be like calling St. Peter's Basilica a neighborhood church in Rome.

Clotilde was Ralph Lauren's spokesmodel at the time this picture was taken, though this picture emphasizes beauty more than fashion. It's from a 1981 article in Time magazine about a new generation of models who were becoming as celebrated as the products they promoted and the designers they worked for. 

This was the first picture of Clotilde that I ever saw, beginning a lifelong infatuation that continues to this day. :-)

Truly a beauty. Wish we had more of her type around today.
