I don't care what anybody says, she's my favorite model and I love this woman. Nobody seems to definitely know how old she is, 53,55,58, 60? She was born into a dysfunctional family, her dad being a pedophile and an abuser and her mom a pill popper. Janice started her modelling career in the 70s after getting the door slammed on her numerous times. She fought the stereotype that a model had to be the blond girl next door. 1979 was the year, yes the year she claims she coined the word "Supermodel", thus becoming the world's first supermodel, but this has been refuted by many people. Janice has been married 3 times and has 2 kids. She's been on the reality shows I'm a celebrity...get me out of here! and The surreal life. She was also a host on America's next top model. She's currently running her own modelling agency and has two shows The Janice Dickinson Modelling Agency and Abbey & Janice: beauty & the best. If you haven't seen JDMA, you should it's the most entertaining hour on TV!


All the botox and the surgeries seem to be worth it to Janice. As fake as it all is, she looks darn good for her age. Everyone knows she's going to be the best corps ever.

Janice is still modelling today.

ANTM should have never let her go, I miss her antics so much. The show totally went downhill after she left and Tyra started losing her mind.


I can only pray to look this good when I'm older, minus the surgery.



I remember when the Stella McCartney line came out in Target last winter (Fall for North Americans). I showed up there bright and Early, but apparently it wasn't early enough. It was absolute pandemonium, people were just pulling things off the rack and stripping right there. I didn't go so crazy though...why you ask? Target Australia is crap. Okay maybe not just Target, everything in Australia costs 3 times as much for everything. 50-80$AUD is your average going price for just a shirt. (Don't get me wrong I love Australia it's my second home). The Stella line at Target ranged from like 60-300$AUD (ish). And most of it was in the 100$ plus range. I didn't even know Target could sell clothes for that much. It's so disappointing, I thought the point was to make the stuff available to the masses? Surely somebody that can afford a 300$ blazer from target can get the real thing? The funny thing is that in the end a lot of people ended up coming to their senses and returning what they bought. I went to Target two weeks later and there was still plenty left on the racks that they were trying to get rid of. I felt like I had the last laugh.

The Zac Posen collection is priced about the same, the dresses are running at about 250$ - 300$AUD. In the end It's still a bargain for a 'designer' outfit, but I can forget that it is TARGET.

I'm not impressed with the casual outfits.

The only piece I really love from this collection is that last red dress.

There's something very Nicholai by Nicky Hilton I can't shake about the above picture.

The man himself.




Oh the ferocity!

Mary-Kate is outshining Ashley for once!



There's something off here, I just can't put my finger on it.

WendyB said...

Janice was absolutely ravishing back in the day. Always crazy though. Stay away from drugs,kids!

SET said...


enc said...

Janice was the shite back then.

The Clothes Horse said...

I love Janice Dickinson--she embraces her crazy and she IS the best!

Mataya said...

I don't get why you called Janet Jackson Janice but I think she looks GREAT!!

Secretista said...

I don't knowww... Janice WAS pretty, but now... eh...

Imelda Matt said...

Jen you're simply to heaven words! I love Janice before, during and after. You just know she'll die a camp tragic death. Have you read 'Model: The Ugly Business of Beautiful Women' it's a must!

Mer said...

she was soooo pretty, but anyway, I also want to look like her when I´m 50 (and also without the surgery...)

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

Mataya - Sorry about the Typo, things happen when your tired! It's fixed.

Héloïse J. said...

i luv the clothes mk
+ash are wearing in this photoshoot. they follow fall's 08 strict mood!

Miss Woo said...

Janice Dickinson looks a bit like Catherine Zeta Jones during her heydays, no?

fashionhayleytokyo said...

I'm an Aussie and I don't know what Target you were shopping at but most shirts at Target are like $30 not $50-$80. Target Aus is pretty good really, my sister got 3 pairs of shoes for $4.50 each at the sale the other day, down from $30 each. I do however agree with you that the Zac Posen line is over priced. Its crazy expensive.

Australia can be expensive if you don't know where to look, just like anywhere. I lived in Tokyo for a year and Aus is often more expensive than there for food and clothes....but as I said you just need to know where to look then you can find amazing bargains here.

Dollfaced Rebel said...

Wow some of the pictures of Janice shocked me... she was stunning and still looks good for her age.

copperoranges said...

JD is sooo crazy, I too hated when she was let go from ANTM!

Marc Anthony looks like a walking corpse!

SKYLA said...

why oh why the surgery Janice? I know some think she looks good, but I always think au naturel is better than surgery.I can see what you mean about Jlo and Marc, she looks a bit restrained.

discothequechic said...

hahaha, oh my gosh, is that Paris H fucking over?
ohh, my day just got this much better.

and wow, i don't think i've really seen pictures of Janice D back in her day. what a gorgeous face, can't believe it's the same person with all the plastic coating that she now has on her face..

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

fashionhayleytokyo - I didn't mean the shirts at Target were 50-80 I meant in australia in general on average.
I still think Everything in Australia is pretty much over priced especially compared to North America. I agree you have to know where to look it took me a few months but I did find some nice bargain stores.

Adge said...

Who hates Janice Dickenson? She's crazy, but beuatiful, or beuatifully crazy, either way,back in her day she was gorgeous, ten times so than her successors, like hohum Cindy Crawford or Claudia Schiffer (Oo, I hope I spelled those names right). Plus the only reason I can think of for her being let go, is that Tyra didn't want any competition for the most outrageous personality/ post-op tranny on ANTM.

LBIC said...

I loooove Janice D. She's amazing and her JDMA show is hilarious.

Neekoh said...

I actually like the Zac Posen line... why can't he do one here in the US?
MKA look pretty damn good. I think they need the professional photogs thought, because otherwise they just look like underfed teenage girls...
And Janice, as annoying as she comes of on TV, looks amazing in those pictures! I love flashbacks like this :)

Molly :] said...

Oh i love JD too :)
She made americas next top model so great- especially when she got all snappy at tyra :)
She was so beautiful too- a bit of a shame about all the plastic surgery though.
At least she's down to earth for a model! :) x

Anonymous said...

oo never realized how long janice was around, that IS impressive!

i had no idea target was in australia! but i guess its not worth it at all

haha i love that photo of paris

Cate said...

oh, i can see your sidebar again! i don't know if it was just my computer or what. anyways.
WOW: janice dickinson is totally hot. especially the pics from the 70s are DAMN GORGEOUS.
hmmm- j.lo and that guy ^^ marc anthony is scary. i think j.lo put a bit too much highlighter/shimmering powder on her face or maybe it's just the flashlights.

Seraphine said...

I love Janice. She's a strong woman and she has a great business sense. I'd hate to be on her bad side ever.

alis said...

I thought I was a loser for loving the JDMA show, but apparently I'm not! You should see her with the Abbey girl, it's even better, soooo much fun and Abbey's accent is to die for.

Now I understand we share the same pain, everything is so expensive here too! Like a tiny jar of clinique cream is $40 in the US, but its $130 here! Everything is regular price x 4. And the worst part is we don't have H&M because they refuse to open a store here because most of their suff are fabricated here. Sucks!

Tala said...

i saw janice leaving the beverly hills hotel after sunday brunch last weekend and she is soooo skinny it is kinda frightening... i mean, you see a lot of skinny ladies around la, but i guess i didnt realize someone older could still maintain that weight - or lack of ;)

jellofer said...

So THAT'S what Janice looked like back in the day...I've always wondered, she was gorgeous then, now she's a bit scary. LOL.

Btw, I have you linked now :)

anna. said...

I do have to agree with you on the Zac Posen,
the red dress IS the only thing worth worrying about getting to the store for.

Janice was pretty, but she just looks so extremely fake/botoxed/surgeoried on.

its not beautiful at all.

SICK. said...

janice: looked like jaslene.
zac posen: i lovelovelove that last red dress.
mk & a:looked fab.


Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

^ Jaslene looks more like a cat!

Ediot said...

thanks for this post! i think janice looked gorgeous back then. haven't seen nay of those pics before so i thank you A LOT for showing me!

Tam Pham said...

it would have been nice to see how she would look like now without all the cosmetic surgeries!

Romany said...

Wow great post! I agree Janice was sooo gorgeous when she was younger! Yeah I could have gone to the Zac Posen for Target launch yesterday but I need there's be truckloads of women there already anyway so I decided that I'd just wait...I don't know when I'll go but I'm sure all the stock will still be there (like you said, it was the same thing that happened when Stella released her line).
J. Lo looks so weird in that pic, I think it's because she's slouching and her hair is pulled back really tight...
I love that outfit that Janet Jackson is wearing - so hot!

Great post! :)

Lotem said...

Ugh, I love madonna but her body looks like a man's body. If you cover her head it literally does.
I think it's truly pathetic that OK's cover is about britney losing weight. But it's not like you could expect for more from that magazine.

Have an awesome weekend.
