The above candid photograph bears little resemblance to the butch snapshots lesbian supermodel Jenny Shimizu appears in. She was scouted by Calvin Klein while working as an auto mechanic and appeared in the company’s fragrance advertisements. Since then she has appeared in the films Foxfire (along with actress Angelina Jolie, with whom she had a love affair) and Itty Bitty Titty Committe; campaigns for other high-fashion companies; gigs on supernatural soap opera Dante’s Cove and reality TV show Make Me a Supermodel; and accolades as a role model (and eye candy) in the queer community. In recent years she has begun to apply her modeling experience to a new career as a designer and agent.
