Janice Dickinson

In the early '70s, Janice Dickinson moved to New York City to pursue modeling after winning "Miss High Fashion Model." After being turned down by Eileen Ford herself, she was discovered by photographer Jacques Silberstein. She went on to cover all of the top fashion magazines, including Marie Claire, and calls herself the "world's first supermodel."
