Cheryl Rae Tiegs is an American supermodel, actress, and fashion designer who became a pop culture icon in the 1970s. She garnered massive popularity for her multiple appearances on the covers of ‘Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue’ and for the iconic 1978 “Pink Bikini” poster. A Minnesota native, Tiegs entered the fashion industry while she was still a high school student. She got her big break at 17 when she landed the opportunity to be on the cover of ‘Glamour’ magazine. In the same year, she was also featured on the covers of ‘Seventeen’ and ‘Elle,’ and later, on ‘Vogue’ and ‘Harper's Bazaar.’ After ruling the modeling industry for a decade as unarguably its greatest star, she entered a new phase in her career in 1980 when she launched a signature line of clothing and accessories for Sears. It turned out to be a huge success, accumulating nearly a billion dollars in sales within a decade. In the following years, she also successfully established her own sportswear brand and a line of wigs and hair accessories for Revlon. In 1986, she made her screen debut in the TV series ‘’Moonlighting’. She has since appeared as a contestant on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ and had a significant role in the film ‘Sharknado: The 4th Awakens.’ Over the years, Tiegs has supported several charitable causes, including the Farrah Fawcett Foundation, City of Hope, and Planned Parenthood.
