Yes a beautiful shot but let's give credit to the guy who shot it! He posted it today and some Vanity fans stole it without giving him credit. Here is his page. I don't have instagram but maybe someone here who has it can ask him if he has more outtakes?

Yes I meant Cameo, lol. I have a few of theses pics myself saved and it's the same face shot of the ones I've had for the longest time. And it sure looks like her. But I'll look into it more since you've questioned it.

Those are definitely her lips. I think it's her. Unless you are speaking of her body being muscular?

Cameo's Alligator Woman album was released in early 1982.....several months before the Vanity 6 album was released.So it's possible that she was doing modeling gigs before she offcially became "Vanity".

If you look at that women's face and take a look at Vanity that is not the same women.

She was also running around with Prince when he was on the Controversy tour according to Dez Dickerson. So when would she had been modeling in time for this album to come out.

So what? She also attended an award show with Rick James in early 1982.My point is,she was clearly seeing more than one guy.She clearly had connections and ways to find modeling gigs.

The lady on the cover of the Alligator Woman album is Denise Matthews.
Why is it even open for debate? shrug
Not only is that her on the cover of the Alligator Woman album she is
also on the cover of the She's Strange album cover where it's more obvious.
Don't laugh at my funk
This funk is a serious joint

That is not her face and from what was stated about her and Prince she dropped all outside work once she met him at his request.
