    Tawny Kitaen in numerous mid-1980’s Whitesnake videos.
    Julie Pankhurst (keyboard), Patty Kelly (guitar), Mak Gilchrist (bass guitar) and Julia Bolino (guitar) and Kathy Davies (drums), who appeared in Robert Palmer videos in the mid 1980’s.
    Not a supermodel, per se, but Courtney Cox danced with Springsteen for Dancing in the Dark.

    Naomi Campbell also did a better-than-serviceable job of fronting Duran Duran (with other substitute members Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen, Eva Herzigova and Yasmin Le Bon) in their “Girl Panic!” video, which is somehow genuinely good stuff.

    Paulina Porizkova in The Cars’ “Drive”. Of course, she became Mrs. Ric Ocasek. Many still wonder how he pulled that off.
