Model/actress Jerry Hall

Do I have to explain who this is? :-D

Jerry Hall, of course was one of the biggest fashion and beauty models of the seventies and eighties, and certainly one of the top blonde models of that period.  To list all of the magazine editorials and commercial work she did would likely take more bandwidth than Blogger.com can handle.

Although she's most famously associated with Mick Jagger, he was not the first British rock star the Texas-born-and-raised Ms. Hall was linked to.  She was briefly engaged to Roxy Music frontman  Bryan Ferry and posed for the cover of that band's album Siren.

Many aspiring models dream of being discovered in whatever town they come from and going to the French Riviera, but Ms. Hall was actually discovered there while staying in a local hostel.  By the end of the 1980s, she was beginning an acting career, appearing in the 1989 movie Batman and playing the girlfriend of the character played by Jack Nicholson, the gangster who later becomes the Joker.  They shared the best exchange in the entire movie.  She: "You look fine."  He: "I didn't ask."
