Cheryl Rae Tiegs (born September 25, 1947) is an American model and actress.


Early years

Tiegs was born in Breckenridge, Minnesota but raised in Alhambra, California, and she graduated from Alhambra High School in 1965. She also attended the California State University, Los Angeles and became a little sister to the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. By the time she was 17 years old, she appeared on the cover of Glamour magazine. Other covers followed, including Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Time, and Vogue.

Swimsuit modeling career

She is best known for her long-running affiliation with the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, which featured her on the cover in 1970, 1975, and 1983. The 1978 poster of her in a pink bikini became an iconic 1970s pop culture image.[1]

She has an accessory and wig line for Revlon. She is a judge on the new ABC series True Beauty that premiered on January 5, 2009.[2][clarification needed] Cheryl is also a spokesperson for Cambria.[citation needed]

Acting career

Tiegs appeared in Vincent Gallo's controversial film The Brown Bunny, and played herself in two episodes of the TV comedy series Just Shoot Me as well as the Moonlighting episode "It's a Wonderful Job".

Tiegs is appearing in the HGTV series Living With Ed.

Tiegs is referenced on several occasions as past love interest of Glenn Quagmire in the television series Family Guy. She voices herself in the episode "Tiegs for Two". [3]

The unrated DVD version of Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story includes scenes cut from the theatrical version of Tiegs playing a late-1970s version of herself, briefly married to the title character and using the name "Cheryl Cox-Tiegs". It is implied she has a rivalry with model Cheryl Ladd, also appearing as herself.
