CHERYL TIEGS – 72 YEARS OLD
Before we had supermodels such as Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Christie Brinkley, and Giselle Bundchen—Cheryl Tiegs was the apple of everyone’s eye. She is considered by many to be the first actual supermodel owing to her international fame. Cheryl Tiegs was born in the United States, but she has German descent. At the age of seventeen, she owned the first swimsuit ad, and she started her modeling career. When Cheryl Tiegs was a junior, she chose to drop out of school to start her career.
During her decades-long career, the model has taken many amazing photos—but few would argue that her iconic pink bikini is the one that truly cemented her status as legendary. Now at 72 years old, Cheryl spends more of her time promoting her advocacies and lending a hand through her various philanthropic work. We give her credit for being blessed with beauty and generosity!
