Maria Hanson is a model who was very active in the late seventies and the eighties.
At the peak of her career, she modeled for several editorial features and advertisements.
But none of the work she did for editors or fashion designers made her as ubiquitous as her stint as a "Maidenform woman" in the eighties. In those ads, which were for Maidenform lingerie, Ms. Hanson was always photographed in public settings - next to a hot dog stand, an opera house, a race track - wearing Maidenform underwear and not much else. Maria Hanson wasn't the only Maidenform model in the eighties, just the most widely recognized one. (Sheila Johnson was another Maidenform model at the time.)
The ads all featured the same slogan: "The Maidenform Woman. You never know where she'll turn up."
And so Maria Hanson turns up here - fully clothed, thank you very much. :-D
I'm sorry, those Maidenform ads were so silly, and that's not all Maria Hanson has been as a model. That's why I focused here on her non-Maidenform work.
