18 SuperModels: T

Taylor, Krissy
Height: 6'0
Hair: blonde
Agency: IMG Models, NY
Born: '78?
Died: summer 1995 from possibly abusing Psuedoephedrine.
Niki's younger sister. Not a quite a supermodel. Has appeared in YM,
Seventeen, Self, Mademoiselle, Vogue, and Dolly (Aust)
Was on House of Style with sister Niki summer 94.
Krissy was a popular model in Australia, having done numerous
covers for Australian girls' magazines.
http://www.supermodel.com/ used to have her home page.

"She's Young, She's Dead, She's Net"

Krissy Taylor died tragically last month, but her scantily clad image still
lives on the Internet, where her mother, Barbara Taylor, is using photos of
her dead daughter to generate some cold, hard cash. Two months before
Krissy's death, the elder Taylor put together a Web site called "The
Supermodel Home Page," which charges advertisers up to $30,000 a month
(apparently no takers yet). Taylor is promising the arrival of "at least six
more significant supermodels" to the site, but for now, Krissy remains the
only featured mannequin. "Ironically, she was the first model we selected,"
Barbara Taylor's partner Patxi Pastor says seriously. But while the home
page now includes a somber Krissy "memorial," the real attraction for the
Internet's largely young, male Web surfers is the sexy pinup style bikini
shots of the late 17-year old. Pastor claims the site draws more than a
million visitors a week. And despite some criticism, Pastor says she and
Taylor won't tone the shots down. "In this business, pictures like that are
peices of art. They are sensually, not sexually, explicit. This is similar
to people looking at shots of Marilyn Monroe."

--"New York" magazine, August 14, 1995
