K Club Special - Part 7: Jayne Modean

Okay, due to popular demand, our next featured model in our "K Club" series is Jayne Modean.  And I must admit that she was one of my favorites also.  Her career is a little later than most of the other models we've featured, starting in the mid-70s and going into the 80s.

Of course, Jayne did all the normal stuff that the models of that time period, such as the teen mags...


Jayne also had a very extensive acting career. She appeared in the 1983 movie "Spring Break".

I actually saw this movie and it isn't terrible.  It is basically has the boilerplate plot of : a bunch of guys go to Ft Lauderdale, one geeky guy meets his true life's love, sophomoric high jinks ensure, blah, blah, blah......My main complaint is that Jayne doesn't appear until well into the movie, where we see her playing an arcade video game (remember those!).



That look is the thousand yard stare after playing "Galaga" for four hours straight!
So you ask "Where are the bikinis??....

Okay, Jayne is in this pic.  Please note that this is probably the only pic you will EVER see in this blog of an overweight guy in white shorts......

 Jayne also appeared in a number of TV shows, including Cheers...

She also was part of a short lived TV series  called "Trauma Center".  Here is a press release photo.

And the cast.  Note that Big Lou was part of the cast....

Okay, you are probably asking "Now WHERE are the bikinis?!????"

"Holy One Piece Batman".  While this isn't a bikini....WHO CARES!!!! Jayne smokes in this 1st edition of "Inside Sports" swimsuit issue.....

Oh, yeah, she was in print ads also (Almost forgot).......


Of course, our focus is the Big Book catalogs, and here Jayne did not disappoint (note, I tried to include some pics not common on the internet for all of our Jayne Modean fans).

Jayne rocked it in Spiegel.....

Of course I had to include a pic with Kathy!!!....

Uber cute!!!.....

"Glad Rags"!!!!  I think I had a post about those a couple of years ago!!!!!

Peasant dresses from Aldens!

Jayne did appear in the movie "Backfield in Motion" in 1991.  That is the last record that I have been able to find of her career.  She certainly was one of the iconic models from the mid 70s to the mid 80s!

  1. I originally saw Spring Break in the theater. I think Jayne was also in Less Than Zero. I'm the one who forgot Jane Cullen's last name and went looking for her on the web and found this site. Recently I saw on the IMDb Cullen was in So Fine so I bought it (not available on Netflix) and could not pick her out. You see, you have your K Club, I have my two Ja(y)nes - Dave in nv

    1. I didn't mention all the movies Jayne was in. There were some that apparently weren't, well, how should I put this - not classics exactly. I'll try to dig up some material on them for my next post on Jayne.

  5. Hi Jayne..back in 1970 my sister came across an article written about you in a magazine titled 13 Year Old Dressmaker...my sister was surprised to find out that you both shared the same first and last name with the same spelling and your birth date is October 15th 1957 and my sister Jayne's it's October 14th 1957...my sister wrote to the address you have any article to contact you at the time to see if we were related and you wrote back and you to remain pen pals for a while until you stopped staying in touch...if you still have this childhood memory it would be really awesome for you to contact my sister through my email address ezriderfxdl@gmail.com or you can contact her directly on Facebook under the name Jayne Nunes...thank you for your time..sincerely , Mark Modean
