The ravishing Lauren Hutton was a tomboy from the start. Raised in a gator-ridden swampland, she spent a wild childhood catching rattlesnakes and selling their skins for 3 dollars a pop. The freewheeling spirit set out for Africa on a mission to work with endangered elephants, making her way by picking up modeling jobs. A chance audition at Vogue brought her face-to-face with legendary Diana Vreeland, who immediately picked the natural beauty out of a lineup, stating, “You! You have quite a presence.” To which the formidable Southerner replied, “Thank you ma’am. So do you.” Ever a true iconoclast, her brand of American bravado leaps off the page and came to define the spirit of a decade. Fiercely independent, she never married or had children, instead collecting an adventure for every freckle on her freshly scrubbed face. Fitting Eight lifetimes into one, from the deepest corners of the Amazon and the vastness of the Serengeti, a momentous Maid Milking life for all it’s worth.
