Bald is Beaming: Pat Evans

Pat Evans was a revolutionary model; on the scene in the 1960's and 1970's.

Evans was featured on in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and other fashion magazines, but earned her acclaim from music group the Ohio Players' album cover and photos with legendary funkman Issac Hayes.

Evans spoke out against the racially charged modeling industry saying, "black modeling is a form of prostitution" in an article in Essence Magazine printed in 1974. Shortly before her article was printed, the model disconnected ties with the modeling industry. 

Evans now has her own modeling agency, Pat Evans Models, out of New York. Her models are seen on advertisements like Smirnoff and Colgate. She also travels with celebrities as a makeup artist.

As of 2009, Evans now lives in Pennsylvania and is a teacher at Northhampton Community College. The former model teaches two classes; a modeling course and a beauty class.


  1. She was stunning! I shave my head, too!

    1. Thank you for the compliment...two years later but the heart felt feeling is still there.

    2. There are no words for how honored we are that you took the time to stop by. You are such an inspiration to all women!!! Thank you!

  2. A very beautiful person and very versed in societal issues as well as Native American History.....Aside from cover art, Ms Evans is a resounding voice in archival modelling photography and the photographers 'eye' what they believed society wanted to see
