Born 1955 in Brooklyn, New York, American model and actress Janice Dickinson moved to New York City to pursue work as a model after winning a national competition called “Miss High Fashion Model” in the early 1970s.
Initially notable as a model, Dickinson has been disputably described by herself and others as the first supermodel. One of the most successful models of the 1970s and 1980s, she also served as a judge on four cycles on America’s Next Top Model beginning in 2003.
Dickinson opened a modeling agency in 2005, which was documented in the reality television series The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency (2006–2008).
