Brooke Shields was just ten years old when she landed her first magazine cover. Despite her being best known now as an actress and fashion model — think Calvin Klein — her first cover was actually for American Home magazine, where she shared the page with a pumpkin pie. A few years later, at age 15, Brooke would be the youngest model ever to appear on the cover of Cosmopolitan.

But cover shoots and acting weren’t the only things keeping her busy. She also appeared in some advertisements. Just below the cover shot, see how Brooke Shields appeared in a full page ad (also from 1975), cozying up to some Colgate toothpaste.
