Vanity pics thread-post #63 has rare Vanity pics

I thought I would post some Vanity pics I found that haven't been posted here yet (as far as I know).


Before I do, does anyone here have a pic of Vanity and Adam Ant together? I have never been able to find one of them...


Also, if anyone has any fan photos they have taken with her or have found, feel free to share with the rest of us. I'm curious if any of the orgers here have met Denise Matthews back when she was Vanity...


anyway here are some pics that I think are pretty rare...hope you all enjoy them!





Vanity + Sydney Poitier + Harry Belafonte at a NAACP function circa 1985




Vanity + Mr. T. posing on set when she guest appeared on his show "T. and T." in 1988





dancing with Morris Day




Vanity + Berry Gordy + Diana Ross at premiere for "The Last Dragon" in 1985. Is it just me or does Diana look disgusted by something or someone here? lol




also at the premiere, showing off her infamous gorilla fur coat







Vanity + Berry Gordy again




some interview




V6








on set of either "Solid Gold" or "American Bandstand" in late 1982 or early 1983




with Brenda and Apollonia at some music awards show, in 1984...where's Susan? LOL




Vanity + Apollonia...don't know when, where or why lol



another V + Apples







with sister, Patricia




with Carl Weathers for their Jet interview for "Action Jackson" in 1988




with her rebound after Nikki Sixx, Billy Idol, in late 1987











circa 1984





on set of "52 Pick-Up" with Kelly Preston in 1986




promotional pics 1984






from her guest appearance on "Miami Vice" in 1987



another "Miami Vice" pic, with Melanie Griffith








I have more that I'll post next time biggrin

Sometimes circumstances lead people places they regret. Not saying posing for Playboy is a bad thing at all.

But if I'm not mistaken Denise was abused by one of her parents (I don't know if there was sexual abuse) but she went thru a serious mind trip, when she met Prince, (his control issues) and the seeing other women didn't do Vanity well at all. Of course she started using coke with Morris and the rest is history

I think it's actress Laura Carrington who poses on Cameo's album from 1985 (second from left)



Besides appearing in the General Hospital-series, Laura was also known as the lady in Lionel Richie's video of "Hello".

Mimi2, you are a real superstar! Thanks so much for posting these pics biggrin .

I didn't even know Vanity posed for the Alligator Woman album cover of Cameo. I love me some Cameo!

Thanks to everyone else who posted pics too. I always considered myself a huge Vanity fan, and I don't have half these pics. They're great.

It's a really nice consolation, since that book hasn't even seen the light of day yet.

Thanks again.

thanks Shango for the correction on that album cover date biggrin Since it's from 1982, I'm surprised Prince allowed her to do any kind of work with another artist lol I've heard how controlling he was with his ladies back then.

Also, thanks again to everyone else who has contributed pics to this thread. I'm wondering if anyone out there has any fan pics of or with Vanity? I love candid pics biggrin


also, I tried looking in the rules but couldn't find my answer, does anyone know how much nudity is allowed on this site? I have some pics I'm not sure I'm allowed to post here lol


anyway, here's the next set:

excuse you, you can leave this thread now. No need to be so rude. I already said I know who Belafonte is and what he has accomplished, but I didn't recognize him in the pic. Was it a stupid mistake? Yes, but no need to insult me. tamewar very politely informed me, and I thank him/her for that.


I made this thread so Vanity fans could enjoy seeing pics of her that maybe they hadn't seen before. This is a positive thread, so please don't post here unless you have something nice to say.

At least her boob job doesn't look all tight and completely circular like the ones other have. Some look like they have rocks under their skin.

She is a stand-out and there is no denying it!!! I wonder if the evangelical thing is going to be her last stop. She just has this energy about her that keeps her interesting.

they still look normal for her size.

why is it that women feel the need for
more boobs after hanging around rockers?

With Tommy I think it's a requirement. That guy doesn't even know what real breasts feel like.
