Jerry Hall started her modeling career in 1975, when she was discovered sunbathing on a Saint Tropez beach by fashion agent Claude Haddad. This 1975 series of ads for Celanese Arnel loungewear in Cosmopolitan magazine must have been one of her first modeling assignments. Her long blonde hair, six foot height and Texas twang made her one of the most visible and photographed models of the day. Here she modeled along with men who were considered hot and sexy in 1975. Perhaps a precursor to Mick Jagger, who she started dating in 1977!
