K Club Special - (Part 16) Joanne Vitelli

Wow! So now we are onto the 16th edition of the K Club Special. And what better way than with the ever elegant  Joanne Vitelli.  Well we may want to rename this post to Part 2 of The J Club Special (the first being the special on Jayne Modean).

Classic teen model from  the 60s.  You may not recognize her from this.  But wait....

Ah ha! Now we know her  - from the Big Book catalogs.  Yeah she was great....

On the cover of the Aldens 1974 Fall and Winter Big Book catalog!

Joanne in "Layered Separates" for that mix 'n match look!

Another great pose!

This is a great pic of Joanne, but I had a lot of trouble getting a good scan.  That part of the catalog was crinkly.  I tried everything, but this is the best I could do.  Even though it isn't a good scan, I decided to post it anyway.

Joanne was also a common sight in many print ads such as here for Gay Gibson.

You're probably thinking "Okay, this entire post was a lead up to this pic."  Yep, you'd be correct. This ad is so politically incorrect on every level, it's hard to know where to start.  Apparently, Eve was introduced in 1971 as a competitor to Virginia Slims.  While that brand presented itself as the choice for the new liberated women, Eve was pitched as the choice for the more feminine lady. Naturally, Joanne was a perfectly elegant choice for that!
