Murphy Brown as a Model: ’60s Candice Bergen


Before Candice Bergen took on her famous television roles on Murphy Brown and Boston Legal, she was a swingin’ 1960s model. There are a few of her early modeling photos on the web, but I believe this beauty is an unseen exclusive from my personal collection of vintage magazines; here we have “Candy” in a lovely pink ski outfit from a 1964 Glamour magazine. I can occasionally share with you pictures of celebrities in vintage clothing, but it is rare that we get a vintage fashion photograph of a celebrity: what a treat.  Ms. Bergen, I would have been your live-in painter anytime.
