Calvin Klein SPORT 87

Brand: Calvin Klein SPORT
Year: Spring/Summer 1987
Models: Bert Van Emden and Jackie Old Coyote
Photographer: Bruce Weber

here a very interesting info about Jackie and how she was discovered by Bruce Weber:

"... It was back in 1987, while Jackie was attending her last year at university in Bozeman, that she was "discovered" by world-famous photographer Bruce Weber, who was buying property in Montana. Weber offered to fly her down to Miami for a Calvin Klein ad campaign he was shooting. More concerned with finishing school than modelling, she turned him down and only agreed to go after the photographer pleaded with one of her brothers to intervene and convince Jackie that this was the opportunity of a lifetime.

Hesitantly, she flew to Miami and soon found herself surrounded by super models like Christy Turlington. An estimated 45 models were photographed for the coveted campaign and much to Jackie's surprise, two of her shots were chosen for the five-photo spread. Not bad for a young woman who had never picked up a fashion magazine until she was in one.

After Miami, she returned to school in Montana with no further modelling prospects. However, later that year, film director Frank Rodham (after seeing the Calvin Klein ad) tracked Jackie down and flew her to Los Angeles to audition for a role in the movie War Party.

It was while she was in Los Angeles that she decided to check out a couple of modelling agencies, but was told she'd never make it as a model because she was "too short, needed a nose job and should consider the Calvin Klein ad a fluke!""
