Congratulations to the 2023 Veteran's Celebrity Grand Marshal

Celebrity Grand Marshal, Kim Alexis

Kim Alexis is part of an elite group of fashion models who rose to supermodel status in the 1980s. She was discovered at age 17 at a Buffalo, NY, modeling agency. After moving to New York City, she had her first cover on Italian Bazaar in just four days.

Although she walked the runway and shot fashion editorials, Alexis quickly became known for her beauty. She had over 500 worldwide magazine covers, including Vogue, Bazaar, and Cosmopolitan, and set the record for Glamour. 

In 1983, Kim Alexis became the face of Revlon’s Ultima II, becoming one of the most recognizable faces in America. She rounded out her supermodel status by being in six Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issues. As Celebrity Grand Marshal for the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade, she hopes to encourage veterans to be their best in all areas of life, understanding that true beauty and health come from within.
