Flashback: Jennifer Connelly the model, before Balenciaga


Long before Jennifer Connelly landed the Balenciaga advertising campaign – the first time – she was a teen model. While surfing around the web we found this image from an editorial in the April 1986 issue of Seventeen in a crazy kaftan complete with a head top pony tail similar to one Victoria Beckham would eventually emulate in an Emporio Armani underwear billboard.

My how 23 years has changed a face, luckily the kaftan now resides firming by a pool or a beach – unless you’re Andre Leon Talley of course.

  • Kelly says:

    Whatever she’s so plain Jane

  • Katrina says:

    I disagree. I’ve always thought she was one of the most beautiful ladies out there. And she wasn’t just any teen model, she was one of Ford Model’s most successful teen models in the 80’s.
