K Club Special 28 - Colleen Corby Part 4!

It's Colleen Corby time again. Yes, she is easily one of the best known models from the 60s and 70s. And as a regular in the always groovy Big Book catalogs, she definitely was one of my favs also. However, at the time I had no idea that she was such a big deal.

Well, now let's see why.......

John must have been a player (actually he looks plain creepy if you ask me), but who can blame him with Colleen in those groovy plaids!  Oh no, this isn't going to devolve into one of those "plaid madness posts like here....

Whew!! It looks like we have the plaid madness for now!

Yep, no plaids here!  Just a really nice pic of Colleen form the 60s,   And yes, there was a time when ladies wore white gloves and it was considered stylish.

Oh no, this isn't plaid but it's getting too close for my comfort!

....and there're back, the plaids invade again!!

...but as quickly as the plaids came they (thankfully) retreated.  We need to keep this post focused on Colleen!!

...looks like I spoke too soon!! It's a plaid, plaid world even with Colleen!!

Those plaids just won't go away.  Here Kathy has the (sorta) plaid giant (sorts) bow tie as Karen and Colleen look on.

Not plaids, but checks.  That's just about as bad.

Now we have truffles instead of checks instead of plaids!

Let's get back to the subject at hand - Colleen Corby
Here she is on the cover of Aldens Summer 75 catalog which is a little odd because she didn't appear a whole lot in Aldens, but in this edition she was practically on every other page!

And finally a modeling pic from 1975.  She certainly was a classic and still a fan favorite even today!
