The late Bitten Knudsen was a Danish model, working primarily during the seventies and early eighties. She was a favourite of Helmut Newton, best friends with Gia Carangi and appeared on the covers of many a Vogue, Harper’s, Cosmopolitan and Glamour.
She’s alleged to have been a bit of a cocaine fiend, enjoying frequent wild nights out with Gia and Janice Dickinson (plus a possible romance with Warren Beatty) until she moved to California and cleaned up her lifestyle. Her trademark white blonde hair, tanned skin and pretty face made her an iconic face of the seventies and eighties.
Bitten passed away quietly in her sleep in March of 2008. All images via TFS.
