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.
