Cheryl Tiegs burst onto the scene at 17 years old, becoming one of the world’s first supermodels. And throughout her long and successful career, she proved that beautiful women could have character, intelligence and depth.

In addition to her work in front of the camera, Cheryl is also a designer, an author, a businesswoman, an outspoken advocate on a variety of issues and causes, and most impressive of all, she is not afraid to put herself out to make a difference.  

She is still smashing stereotypes today, fighting the good fight to encourage people to live healthier lifestyles, she’s gone to the Arctic to report on global warming and now, she’s shining a light on how big a deal indoor air pollution is.

When Cheryl decided to go green, she enlisted the help of actor Ed Begley Jr. to help make her house over.

Find out what tips he gave her, and what she thinks the second half of her life holds in store for this ageless beauty.
