Listen to Bobbie Gentry Singing her Ode to Billie Joe

Brooke Shields is born on May 31 in 1965. We could all watch her grow-up on the cover of a magazine. At 13, she was the youngest model ever to cover Vogue. Before that, her mother made her do advertisements (a lot).

There are many, many more covers featuring Ms Shields. The 1980’s her covershoots were at its peak. At that time you could follow her face monthly, or maybe even every week on some cover, if you wanted to.
