We are thrilled to feature Lexingtonian and model Heather Kozar on the cover. Flip through these looks and enjoy the throwback glam vibes! When we decided to do a throwback fashion shoot, we knew we had to call on this three-time TOPS covergirl. We asked her to tell us about her time as a model and why she loves this city so much.
“My modeling career came about when I started competing in local swimsuit contests in 1996, eventually ending up in Hawaii for the National Hawaiian Tropic Swimsuit Contest.
“In 1997, I was invited to a party in Los Angeles for New Year’s Eve and pretty much never went back to Ohio. I jumped right into to the industry, doing commercials, promotional appearances and print work. One of my favorite opportunities was being a Barker Beauty on The Price is Right. I had my own parking spot at CBS... a dream job to say the least!
“In 2007, I moved to Lexington. I have enjoyed living here so much and raising my two sons. Chase is 15 and Brady is 11. I spend most of my days at ballparks, whether it’s for one of the two baseball teams Brady plays for or Chase’s football games. We stay busy between games with practices, workouts and school in the mix. I am so blessed and I am so proud of the young men they are becoming!”
