Janice Dickinson Before She Started Her Modeling Agency (PHOTO)

Before her stint on the reality series "I'm a Celebrity…Get Me out of Here!," or as the outspoken judge on "America's Next Top Model," Janice Dickinson had a successful career as a model. The Brooklyn native was one of the most sought after faces of the '70s and '80s and appeared on magazine covers around the world. Dickinson became so well known that she even started her own modeling agency, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency, which was chronicled on a reality show. Her big personality and penchant for low cut dresses have made this mother of two a staple in the fashion industry for decades -- and that's no small feat.

In this 1994 photo, we see Ms. Dickinson at a party in New York City. She is doing '90s minimalism well, in a tight-fitting black dress and not much else. Her bronzed complexion quickly becomes the focus of the look, as does her voluminous hair. We love her classic look and could easily see ourselves donning something similar come spring.
