Born in the USA

American female models


If we compare american models from the 70's to the present, there were a huge difference.
In the 60's/70's the 70% of the female models were causcasian, like Lisa Taylor, Jerry Hall, Patti Hansen, etc. For decades, All american models described it as the "California Look". Models who had it were tanned, blonde, blue-eyes, "healthy and strong" and nordic features.

Over the past 50 years, the US population has become increasingly diverse.
More race or hair colour, defines the "the All-American" model today, like Black, Hispanic, Native American, Asian and Caucasiann girls.

This is my American Models list.
