American supermodel, actress, author, and entrepreneur. Her modeling career took off as a result of being featured on the cover of the 1989 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue (pictured). She then parlayed her career in modeling into other fields. She once had a line of clothing sold by Kmart [1]. For a while, she hosted a segment on viewer mail and fitness tips on TV's BodyShaping[citation needed].

Ireland has a modest number of television and movie acting appearances to her credit, including roles in Side Out, Mr. Destiny, Loaded Weapon 1 and Necessary Roughness. Her first movie - 1988's Alien from L.A. - was mercilessly skewered (as were Ireland's acting abilities) when it appeared on the fifth season of Mystery Science Theater 3000. She is the author of Powerful Inspirations: Eight Lessons That Will Change Your Life.

Ireland is the chief designer and CEO of Kathy Ireland Worldwide, a billion dollar brand product marketing company[citation needed]. She began this industry in a time (pre-2000) when other fashion models were refusing non-model contracts, which allowed her to begin building her industry before pop culture took the fashion industry into model-style fashion industry. Ireland remains an avid public speaker on women's issues.

Ireland has recently become outspoken about being pro-life. On Politically Incorrect, she said that she used to be pro-choice, and said that after reading her husband's biology books, she determined, "At the moment of conception, life starts."
