The Beauty of Retrospect: Juli Foster Week, Part Five

Juli Foster continued to model into the 1980s. Here she is from a fashion editorial from the British edition of Vogue, specifically the February 1982 issue. Eric Boman is the photographer.

As I indicated earlier on this blog, Juli Foster rarely cracked a smile.  Even a simple grin from her is rare.  You might say she smiled as often in the seventies and eighties as President Calvin Coolidge spoke back in the twenties.  

Come to think of it, most people know Juli Foster by her print work, and unless there's an old commercial of hers floating out there on YouTube, her admirers have never heard her speak, either.  Most models are known for their print ads, of course, so the fact that you rarely hear the sounds of their voices adds to their mystique.  But by keeping a straight (but beautiful) face, Juli Foster enlarged her own mystique even more.

She's a genius. :-) 

Next up - a week of Maria Hanson, portraying her most famous role as a model. Can you guess what I mean? ;-)
