Hot girl summer is drawing to a close, but that doesn’t mean we must stop admiring hot people. And in a city famed for its looks — from big hair and Neiman Marcus to Deep Ellum and punk — in a state with one of the highest numbers of plastic surgeons per capita, we’ve got plenty of hot people. Turns out, some of them become models, and some of those models move on to become movers and shakers around the world. So before the summer is truly over, let’s celebrate and admire some of the most successful models from North Texas (some boys allowed).
Oak Cliff native; seventh out of 11 children; Army veteran; Playmate of the Month (in February 2020): These are merely a few of the ways you could describe Chasity Samone, the Playboy model who plans to run for Dallas City Council. Her platform? Ending redlining and increasing access to higher education. Samone, who was born and raised in Oak Cliff and attended David W. Carter High School, got into modeling after deciding not to reenlist in the Army. She modeled as a “Muse of the Week” for Playboy in 2016 and graced the centerfold of the magazine’s inaugural “Equality Issue.” She’s also starred in music videos for Lil Yachty and WizKid.
Born in Gonzales and raised in Mesquite, a North Mesquite High School graduate and former Eastfield College student, Jerry Hall is Texas-bred through and through. She’s also a supermodel who’s graced the covers of Vogue and Cosmopolitan, gave birth to four of Mick Jagger’s children (including models Lizzie and Georgia May Jagger), married Rupert Murdoch and served as a muse and model for Lucian Freud and Andy Warhol. In 2019, Harper’s Bazaar covered Hall’s efforts alongside Paris Hilton, Reese Witherspoon and Alyssa Milano to help pass the Equal Rights Amendment. Her legacy is complicated and controversial enough to earn Salon columns even now. Through it all, Hall’s a Dallasite loud and proud.
