    The Miss Indonesia on bass thread reminds me...

    Vanessa Williams was Miss America and was also a successful singer. Ayse Hatun Önal was Miss Turkey. Army Of Lovers supposedly recruited all their female singers from a modeling agency. Anybody else?
  2. Wasn't Debbie Harry of Blondie a model first, then singer?

    I had no idea about those two - I guess it was before my time. But I imagine there have to be many more.

    She was stripped of that title.
    Pun intended.
    She is a great singer & entertainer.

    Dunno if Ellie Rowsell ever modeled before fronting her indie-pop band Wolf Alice, but she probably could if she wanted to.

    Saw Wolf Alice on Jool's the other stuff.

    Can't find anything in the bio, but I wonder how many members of Prince's bands over the years have been models. I see that Vanity was.

    When Taylor Swift did the Victoria's Secret Show she suddenly didn't look tall and geeky but in the same class as their full time models. Many local singers I know have done their share of modeling being the goal was the entertainment business, be it acting, singing or just having still pictures taken of them

    Oh yeah, Taylor Momsen. I've covered a few Pretty Reckless songs a few years ago, I knew she was an actress but not a model.
