Fashion Issue – Sexy Sitcom Divas (Los Angeles Magazine 1996)

In the late, occasionally lamented Flying Blind (Fox), ex-model Téa Leoni played the beautiful Alicia, a sexy and uninhibited Greenwich Village temptress. In The Naked Truth (an NBC midseason replacement), the actress formerly known as Rupert Murdoch’s Foxiest White Woman plays the beautiful Nora, a sexy and uninhibited tabloid photographer. “I think she’s the best-dressed woman on TV,” says one rival comedic actress. But in so-called real life? Modesty and humility reigh. “My favorite designer? Oh gosh – Adidas,” says Leoni meekly. “I couldn’t dress my way out of a well-lit closet. I think my body is so odd – I have broad shoulders and a broad rib cage and skinny legs, and my nickname on the set is Mr. Man-Bottom.” To soften this “act break” between perception and reality, we’ve photographed Leoni in sneakily sexy velvet. Admits Leoni grudgingly: “There’s something about the flow of the fabric that – oh, I don’t know. I probably look goofy. But I sure feel good.”

There is no greater cause than making the world fit for children. I feel very strongly about carrying on the family tradition by working with UNICEF to help improve the lives and well-being of children everywhere.
