With a career that began at the age of 14, Angie Everhart skyrocketed from high school mascot to stunning supermodel overnight. Angie was first discovered while working at a local fashion show in Akron, OH. A talent scout saw the potential that she possessed, and had her in New York within two weeks. Following her tenure in New York, Angie called France home for 10 years starting at the age of 17. While living in France she became fluent in French and learned quite a bit of Italian, all of which she has retained through today.
As a result of Angie’s international modeling success, she transitioned into a heavier regiment of print and TV campaigns. The first of which was for the Finesse brand, with who she remained for several years. She then moved onto being the spokeswoman for L’Oréal, which products included hair color, shampoo and any other hair related products. Being the L’Oréal spokeswoman in Europe and the cache that goes along with that association allowed Angie to transition into becoming the face of Pantene.
Recognized worldwide for her undeniable beauty, Angie graced the covers of Elle and Glamour and was the first redhead to be on the cover of American Glamour, all by the time she was 18. Appearing on countless magazine covers and being featured in countless more editorials made Angie a household name and gained her much notoriety among magazine editors. This notoriety paved the way for Angie to be in Sports Illustrated’s most popular issue, the swimsuit issue, four times. One of which she was the featured model. These associations caught the attention of famed fashion houses such as Chanel, YSL Rive Gauche, Lolita Lempicka, Christian Dior, Versace, Gianfranco Ferré, Max Mara and Christian Lacroix to name a few. Angie also became the first redhead to ever have a cosmetic contract (with the French company PHAS). She was not only featured in print campaigns for the previously mentioned brands but also participated in every major haute couture runway show and fashion event in the world. In addition to haute couture, Angie has incredible mainstream appeal, as was demonstrated by the success of her work for Levi’s, which in turn caused the corporate world to acknowledge her presence as an international icon.
Angie made the successful transition from the runway to the big screen in 1993 when she co-starred with Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Last Action Hero followed by her appearance in 1995 with David Caruso in Director Billy Friedkin’s Jade. Everhart continued her transition to film co-starring in films such as, Bordello of Blood and Another 9 ½ Weeks. It wasn’t long before television would also come calling. Angie has made guest appearances on shows such as, 3rd Rock From the Sun, Caroline in the City, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and many more.
Angie was seen regularly as Carly in the NBC action-drama UC: Undercover from the producers of Law and Order. She also appeared as Chessie in the NBC Miniseries First To Die written by James Patterson and The Science Fiction Channel’s Bugs with Antonio Sabato Jr. as well as Hallmark Channel’s "The Hollywood Mom's Mystery." She has hosted numerous TV shows, including the M6 awards (French Music TV Awards), which was broadcasted live in French.
Later she was seen competing against a few other celebrities in ABC’s Celebrity Mole Yucatan as “The Mole”. She then shot several films including Mary Higgins Clark’s Cradle Will Fall for Pax TV as well as the feature film Bandido opposite Matt Craven, “CLOUD 9” with Burt Reynolds and Universal/Imagine’s film “Kids in America” starring Topher Grace.
Angie is passionate about children’s charities and environmental causes. She is also very stimulated by extreme sports and enjoys testing her physical limits. In addition to over 300 sky dives around the world Angie has been lit on fire for a stunt show, successfully raced cars, won golf tournaments, climbed mountains and has a passion for the equestrian. Most recently, Angie developed, created and hosted a TV show that focused on the effects that global warming has had on the snows of Kilimanjaro. The production of the show followed Angie up to the summit of Kilimanjaro as well as documenting a week-long safari.
Angie has had the rare opportunity to be in some of the most extreme conditions, has worked with the fashion industries best designers and make-up artists, and has explored virtually every skin, hair and beauty product made. Coupled with her passion for the very best, Angie has been inspired to create a skincare line that can protect fair skin from all of the dangers of any environment, while still being effective for any skin type. A passion for life and health has kept Angie Everhart radiant and in the spotlight for many years and will keep her there for many years to come.
The latest addition to Angie’s life is her little boy Kayden Bobby Everhart whom she delivered into this world on July 24, 2010. In her own words “being a mother is the greatest thing I have ever done”. She enjoys her days with her son who keeps her busy but still manages to make time to be the newest spokeswoman for “Nutrisystem”. Angie went on the “Nutrisystem” food plan to get back into shape after she had Kayden and continues to follow the plan to maintain her healthy lifestyle.
