Janice Doreen Dickinson (born February 15, 1955) is an American model, photographer, author, and talent agent. Initially notable as a model, she has described herself as the first supermodel. One of the most successful models throughout the 1970s and 1980s, she expanded her profession to reality television in 2003 by judging for four cycles on America's Next Top Model.
