Though not a covergirl or a runway superstar, Charlene Dash made her mark in catalogs and innumerable magazine editorials in the late 60’s and early 70’s.

The willowy New Yorker got her big break with a two-page spread in Vogue in January 1968, and subsequently appeared in catalogs, print ads, and TV commercials for brands like Clairol and Noxzema.

A top moneymaker for Ford agency, she was very much in demand. A May 1970 article in Ebony Magazine said, “She is considered one of the top black models in the nation.”

To Charlene!
