Janice Dickinson Career
Dickinson relocated to New York in the 1970s. She wanted to pursue modeling after winning the national competition ‘Miss High Fashion Model.’ However, the modeling scene in New York was bleak because only blue-eyed blondes and conventionally beautiful women were considered for modeling. She had numerous failures and was turned down by top modeling agencies in New York, such as Eileen Ford, because everyone thought her appearance was too ethnic for modeling in America. Jacques Silberstein, a fashion photographer, discovered her after his girlfriend, actress Lorraine Bracco, admired Dickinson’s appearance. Dickinson began to believe in herself, and Wihelmina became her first modeling agent.
She worked as a model in New York for years, earning a daily salary of $2,000 USD, which was four times the standard model’s salary at the time. Dickinson was signed by Ford Models to model for their new JVC camera advertising campaign. She was one of 20 Ford models who signed with Elite Model Management, founded by John Casablanca. People began to recognize Dickinson in the 1980s after she was dubbed a supermodel. At this point, she began to appear on the covers of popular magazines such as Playboy, Vogue, Marie Claire, Elegance, Harper’s Bazar, Photo, Cosmopolitan, and others. She was the cover model for Vogue 37 times and Elle magazine 7 times.
She began working and modeling for the fashion industry’s biggest names, including Calvin Klein, Oscar de la Renta, Valentino, Bill Blass, Versace, Azzedine Alaia, Pino Lancetti, and others. Max Factor, Christian Dior, Revlon, Lou Taylor handbags, Keiko swimwear, Clairol, Balmain, Obao, Virginia Slims, Cutex, Orbit gum, Jenny, Hush Puppies, Alberto VO5, and other brands used her as a model. Dickinson resurfaced in the media after a long absence in 2003. She served as a judge on the reality television show ‘America’s Top Model.’ Tyra Banks, the show’s producer, hired her after reading one of her books, believing she would be able to advise the young models on how to conduct themselves.
In 2007, she co-starred in the English reality television series ‘Abbey & Janice: Beauty & The Best’ with English model Abigail Clancy. It was a show about Clancy’s attempt to break into the American modeling scene, and Dickinson’s role was to help her along the way. The show debuted in the United Kingdom in 2007 and in the United States in 2008. Dickinson appeared on the UK reality television show ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!’ in 2007. She finished the show as a runner-up. She returned to the same reality show in 2009, but this time in the American version. Dickinson was a guest judge on the Finnish version of the ‘Top Model’ franchise in 2009.
