LAUREN HUTTON

BY JILL JOHNSON — Lauren Hutton may be the only model who started working in the sixties and has continued to land bookings through four more decades. This stunning, loquacious woman from Charleston, South Carolina, grew up as a tomboy tromping through the swamps of Florida, but her determination to explore the rugged terrain of other continents brought her to the concrete jungle when she was just out of high school.
