    Cheryl Tiegs

    Cheryl Tiegs embodied the girl-next-store look with her sun-kissed tan, healthy physique, and Cover Girl smile. She began modeling at 16-years-old, working for department stores for $25 a day. Her first major campaign was a swimsuit ad that appeared in Seventeen. She went on to cover many fashion magazines, as well as Sports Illustrated many times over.
