Colleen Corby

One of the supermodels of my teen years was Colleen Corby.

She was everywhere.
She did like 15 Seventeen magazine covers.
She was in both the Sears and JC Penney catalog.
She was in an ad on every other page of every magazine.
I’m not exaggerating.
I thought she was gorgeous.
it took some doing, but I found a pic of her today.
Here she is now.

She looks happy and beautiful.
She looks like someone I’d like to know.
I bet she has some stories.

  1. I adored Colleen. She was a big part of my teenage years, cuz it was all about the clothes, and nobody wore them better than Colleen Corby. She’s still beautiful!


  2. Colleen Corby was such a fabulous representative of us teen girls in the 1960's. She looked adorable in everything she modeled and, as a teen who was just starting to sew my own clothes, I used Colleen's sense of style to give me inspiration. I have had such fun looking at some of her photos posted online from Seventeen Magazine. I hope she is enjoying a good life. Thanks Colleen for such wonderful memories through the pages of Seventeen!


  3. I am now a 63 year old grandmother as like so many others, Colleen Corby and Seventeen magazine were some of my best teen memories. I'm glad she is happy and is doing well. She brought a great deal of fun to my teen years.

  5. I was a teen during the time Colleen Corby modeled. I remember seeing her beautiful face on Seventeen magazine covers, in ads, magazines, and catalogs. At that time there weren’t many, if any, beautiful models a young African-American teenage girl could identify with, or look up to. For me, it was Colleen. No, she didn’t look like me, but I thought she was the prettiest, most beautiful girl I’d ever seen in magazines. No other model could touch her in the way she exuded confidence, grace, and poise. Her facial expressions, her eyes, and her beauty said it all. I so admired her. I don’t know what her personality was like, but her looks glowed with fresh innocence. I’ve never seen a model from that time, and even up until now, model the way Colleen Corby did. Awesome!!
