A couple times per month we will be sitting down with models from decades past to look back on their modeling careers. With the help of Patty Sicular, Vice President, Director of Ford Models’ Archives, we will bring you the story of the models that made history with Ford Models. ‒ Ford Models Blog Editor

Model Evelyn Kuhn first met Eileen Ford in Berlin and later traveled to New York in 1966 where she began modeling for Ford Models. Over the years Evelyn has featured in several magazines editorial shoots, Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar amongst her favorite, as well as campaigns with Revlon and Cover Girl Cosmetics. She has been photographed by a number of photographers, but her favorites include Richard Avedon, Francesco Scavullo, Art Kane, Melvin Sokolsky, and Rico Puhlman.

Evelyn particularly enjoyed traveling during her modeling career. Photo shoots in warm climates such as the Canary Islands, Italy, Portugal, Thailand, and Japan were principle amongst her favorite destinations.

Apart from modeling Evelyn has run a gift shop located in Greenwich, Connecticut that specializes in silk and dried flower arrangements for the past 17 years. She stays in such great shape by eating healthy and getting plenty of sleep.

I loved my 22 years there…I always looked up to you (Evelyn)as I was a Today’s Girl and I did mostly commercials,TVfood Network segments on TV and Ford got me a contract with Family Circle Magazine where i had my own colunm. I never got the famous covers of Magazines that you did!!! We called you the “Big Girls” the famous beautiful girls who we knew by only one name. You still look wonderful…please tell me where your gift shop is in Greenwich…I want to stop in. Patty why don’t you plan a reunion in the spring? Happy Belated Birthday Patty. Love to all the Girls.

  8. Evelyn. you are a sensuality oozing being, no matter what you do it seems.
    I am not surprised people want a part of you then and now. More is yet to come as women are now starting to lead the planet.

  9. Evelyn – It’s so great to see all those fabulous pictures of you. I remember many of them. I always thought you were one of the most gorgeous of the beautiful girls we worked with(and one
    of the nicest). You still look great and your store looks lovely
    Luv, Susie

  10. It is wonderful to read all the comments from so many beautiful women I photographed over the years. Evelyn, you always needed your beauty sleep. You had the most perfect skin, so much so that you became the standard for skin tone. You had the most beautiful smile and the warmest heart.
    I still love you, Gideon Lewin

  11. Evelyn – I JUST NOW thought to put your name into Yahoo Search. You were my absolute FAVORITE MODEL growing up (I’m 55). You are stunning (the most BALANCED features of anyone!) and I really can’t say that there have been many models that have measured up to you since!!!


    A real fan, Helen from Fort Wayne, Indiana whose mother used to get Vogue from the library truck…..
