Lovely Lucille Ball

She made us laugh for years, which is why it's easy to forget that Lucille Ball had a lucrative modeling career before "I Love Lucy." She was the Chesterfield cigarette girl at one point (the notoriety of which helped launched her acting career), and she also modeled at Hattie Carnegie's NYC dress shop.

Here's a smattering of modeling photos found on the Web of Lucille Ball including a Hoover vacuum cleaner ad and some glamorous fur shots that would make PETA bristle today. Funny, talented, and beautiful: you can't beat that combination.
