Biography

Since her days as the world's most renowned Supermodel, Carol Alt has gone on to be author, actress and entrepreneur. Having had enormous success in all her endeavors such as being a USA Today Best-Selling Author for her books on Raw food; a multi- award winning actress; the face of her own line of cosmetics; having a number one hit in Europe in the music industry; providing voiceovers for such hits as "King of the Hill"; and as the host of various TV and radio morning shows and newscasts, including Fox's "Good Day Live".

Called "The Most Beautiful Woman in the World" by Playboy Magazine and "The Next Million Dollar Face" by Life Magazine, Carol has not disappointed. Gracing the covers of over 700 magazines, several posters, two workout videos and numerous calendars, she is a one-woman conglomerate! She has lost track of the number of advertising campaigns, commercials, interviews, hosting jobs and endorsement contracts that have created this enormously successful and lasting career.

Forever touted as "The model that started the Supermodel trend" by John Casablancas, the owner of Elite Models, Carol tosses off that title as the result of necessity being the mother of invention. The necessity of a fourth Elite division of models who worked every day - who were career professionals - made Carol the first ever "Super Elite Model in the Super Elite Division." The press therefore dubbed her the first "Supermodel."

Hitting the highest echelons of the fashion industry did nothing but fuel Carol's thirst for new projects and new venues, so, making good use of her fame, she self- produced her highly successful series of posters and calendars when Elite rejected the idea. These posters and calendars became the benchmark for any and every rising young supermodel. Carol thereby created a new business for all supermodels to come and in the process, became the object of fantasy for every young boy in America who had her poster plastered on his bedroom wall.

No other model can boast an uninterrupted 27 year career. Having twice graced the cover of the coveted Sports Illustrated Magazine's Swimsuit Edition, Carol has gone on to star in over 50 movies, series, miniseries and episodic television in America and abroad.

Her highly acclaimed series "Amazon", written by Peter Benchley, debuted as Varietys "Number One New Dramatic Syndicated Series", much to the delight of CBS and Alliance Atlantis, and paved the way for today's hit "Lost".

Carol has also had great success for her role in "Howard Sterns Private Parts". She is the recipient of Three European Telegattos (Emmy awards), one European "Oscar" Moda, The Mont Blanc Award, The Best Award, The Golden Ticket Box-Office Award ( for the most box office sales for a film in one year), The Certificate del Arte from The European Film Commission and The Umbra Award.

Prince Albert still holds a slight grudge that Carol did not come to the Monaco Film Festival to pick up her award for the portrayal of the life story of Rosanna Benzi, a woman with genetic polio living in an iron lung, in the film "Vice for Life."

Not content to "just act", she re-wrote the medical aspects, co-produced, and directed the children in a series of 12 films about a female doctor with a practice in an African clinic called "Under the African Sun."

Her independent films include "Hitters", which won the Westchester Film Festival, "The Look" which was the talk of The Tribeca Film Festival and "Signs of the Cross" which won The Catskills Film Festival.?Her sci-fi hit, "Snakehead Terror", based on a true story, is still scaring people on the Sci-Fi Channel where it became not only a hit, but now a cult film.

Her recent films include: "Fatal Trust" for Lifetime, "Totally Awesome" for VH1,"Homo Erectus", an Adam Rifkin comedy starring Ali Larder, Tom Arnold and David Carradine, a new Sci-Fi Channel film called, "Swarmed" and "The Town that Banned Christmas", an independent film which joined the roster of Lionsgate Films for 2006.
