About Kathy Speirs-Puccio:

Kathy Speirs-Puccio (nee Hanson) was born in Colorado. She is best known for her modeling career in the 1970s. She was the cover-girl for a handful of Cosmopolitan magazine covers. (August 1972, December 1973, April 1974 and 1977, and November 1977.)

Her career began as a model for a Colorado-based talent agency, Wilhelmina Models. A variety of print ads and television commercials are part of her portfolio too. She even did a onetime modeling spot for Noxzema Shave Cream with football legend, Joe Namath. Kathy also appeared in acting roles on Columbo and Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In.

Because of her industry connections, Kathy had almost unlimited access to designer high-fashions ... connections which lasted well into her retirement.

At the age of 17, she married Dr. Fred Speirs, a Denver physician. The marriage lasted less than a year and ended in divorce. Kathy then met and married attorney Thomas P. Puccio. Puccio prosecuted the infamous Abscam corruption convictions in the 1970s. He later became a defense attorney in several high-profile cases in the 1980s and 90s. The couple owned a large, expansive home in Weston, Connecticut. Thomas passed away in 2012. Kathy passed away earlier this year.


Some of you may recall a previous post, Seven Things That Would Make Carrie Bradshaw Swoon. The items in that sale were from a downsizing sale we ran for Kathy back in 2018. Now, this two-day High Fashion series contains the items she kept and are now part of her estate. Day One features 525 lots and Day Two features 520. Both sales offer UPS and USPS shipping options.
