Models From The 70's - Mona Grant

Today's model is blonde beauty Mona Grant. Talk about a gorgeous face!
here she is in a lovely peasant-style dress, from 1971:

The next four are all from the same year - 1970. In a hammock:
Chillin' on the beach:
Wearing a wig and a hat:
And in an advertisement for Born Blonde:

The green sweater she's wearing below happens to be by Betsey Johnson for Alley Cat - cute!

So pretty in blue, from '72:

And this is her, too, from the same year:

Just another one of my favorites - I loved looking at my magazines back then (as i still do now!) - the fashions, the makeup, room decor - all of it!
(All images are from my vintage Seventeen magazines.)

I am feeling like a hot cup of cocoa and cuddling up on a sofa with your Seventeen magazines and a good Christmas movie. Love T

Oh...Tina has the right idea. That sounds perfect!

Weren't they just adorable and (with the exception of Twiggy) so healthy looking! These darn young fashion models today are killing themselves & NOT looking pretty or healthy. *Sigh* Guess I'm just getting old. How great you saved your magazines to re-love them over & over. I shutter to think what the new ones consist of!

Hello! I just found this blog, when I was trying to find some information about Graphistamps, then found your "H" stamp. HOW WONDERFUL that you found that H. I, too, am an "H" (Holly). And then I saw MONA GRANT! God, it's like nobody knows anything about this stuff anymore or cares, except a select few. I LOVE her! She was 6' tall and had a black cockapoo (so cute) and I loved seeing her in Seventeen. I so wanted to be LIKE her and get to 6' (only made it to 5'10"). It's prompting me to try to find out whatever happened to her, now. I love the 70's (I'm 55) and watch a lot of MeTv as well. AND grew up in Orangevale! Anyway...WOW!

I grew up with Mona. She was a good friend. Sometimes I would have the pleasure of accompanying her and her mom into the City for photo shoots. Seeing these photos brings back so many good memories.

June - That's so cool! Thank you so much for commenting.
I'm delighted that you found my post and enjoyed the photos.
Mona Grant was truly one of my VERY favorites - so please check back because I am certain to be doing another post about her, featuring more photos from Seventeen.
Thanks again!
