Wow, have I been on a very interesting historical search over the last several months. Apparently, early on in her career, Kay (one of our favorite 70s catalog models) was a "Smile Girl" for Jantzen. They had an advertising theme called "Just wear a smile and a Jantzen." And as part of that campaign, they had these "Smile Girls" as company ambassadors.
What exactly was a "Smile Girl?"
I got onto this era of Kay's career when Blue Senshi sent me the following little snippet.......
So now we know how Kay started her career, and what a career that was. And to think it all began when a friend of her mom entered her pic in a local contest! Go back to the first newspaper clip and you'll see that Kay was heading off to great things!!
