To begin with, Eileen had the first contact with fashion as a model during college years, working under the Harry Conover Modelling Agency. In 1943, she completed her studies in psychology at Barnard College, then in 1944 she met Gerard Ford, who she married in November of the same year. He left for World War II, and Eileen then worked as first as a secretary for photographer Elliot Clark, then for fashion designer and reporter Tobe Coburn.

Eileen continued to work as secretary, and in order to earn extra money, began organizing some parades. From here she elaborated on the idea of creating an agency that was responsible for launching new models. In 1946 when Jerry returned, they founded the agency Ford Model Management, which set out among its interests the model’s career, advising them on contracts and working rights, which led to a remarkable growth in their customer base. The models were treated differently from other agencies, as Eileen also gave them advice on hair-styling and makeup, and felt obliged to educate them according on their moral standards. In one year the Ford Modelling Agency, better known as Ford Models, became one of the most successful companies in the US. Ford Models has set the standard of beauty for a whole generation by favouring blond women with clear eyes. The first Ford model was Jean Patchett, and qualities were also introduced by Martha Stewart, who later became one of Chanel’s faces. The Ford’s net worth rose with their success.

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the birth of the agency in 1966, Jerry Ford declared to the New York Times that their models occupied 70% of jobs in New York and 30% worldwide. In 1968, “Eileen Ford’s Book of Model Beauty” book was published, containing photos and biographies of Ford’s most famous models, and beauty tips such as diets and physical exercises. Twiggy the top model icon of the 1970’s was launched by the agency, and Ford also launched such models as Ali MacGraw, Jerry Hall, Melanie Griffith, Kim Basinger and Sharon Stone.

During the 1980’s, she also collided with the competition, by losing several top models, but undertook new projects. She began organizing the Ford Models Supermodel of the World annual search, looking for new faces from all over the world, thus, in 1982, she ‘discovered’ the Danish top model Renée Simonsen.

Eileen also took a career as a writer, publishing books such as “The Beauty of the Model’s World”, “More Beautiful You in 21 Days”, and “Beauty, Now and Forever”, which brought her to win the Woman of the Year in Advertising Award in 1983. More recently Ford Models launched names like Ines Sastre, Elle Macpherson, Bar Refaeli and Paris Hilton.

In 1995, Eileen and Jerry decided to retire, leaving the agency’s management to daughter Katie Ford, in office until 2007. In 1996, Ford Models were rewarded for their photographs at the Festival of Fashion Photography, and featured in articles by American Photo Magazines and Top Model Magazine in 1997. In December 2007, Ford Models were sold to Stone Tower Equity Partners.

Finally, in the personal life of Eileen Ford, she was married to Gerard W. Ford from 1944 until his death in 2008, with whom she had four children. Eileen died on 9th July 2014 in Morristown, New Jersey, at 92, from complications related to meningioma and osteoporosis.

Born Boris Babacar Diaw-Riffiod on the 16th April 1982, in Cormeilles-en-Parisis, Val-d’Oise, France, he is a professional basketball player, who spent 14 seasons playing in the National Basketball Association (NBA) for such teams as the Atlanta Hawks, Phoenix Suns, Charlotte Bobcats, San Antonio Spurs and Utah Jazz, before returning to French basketball and joining Levallois Metropolitans.

Have you ever wondered how rich Boris Diaw is, as of early 2018? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that Diaw’s net worth is as high as $23 million, an amount earned through his successful career, active since the early 2000s.

Boris Diaw Net Worth $23 Million

Of Senegalese descent, from an early age Boris was influenced towards basketball, as his mother, Élisabeth Riffiod, was one of the best French basketball centers in her prime, and so Boris look up to her. In 2001 he joined Pau-Orthez for which he played the next three seasons, winning French League Rising Star honors in 2002, and French League Player’s MVP in 2003.

After that, he declared for the 2003 NBA Draft, and was chosen by the Atlanta Hawks as the 21st overall pick, signing his rookie contract with the Hawks on the 10th July 2003. Coming to the NBA as an experienced player didn’t help him much, as he only averaged 4.5 points and 3.5 rebounds per game in the two seasons he spent in Atlanta. Before the start of 2005-2006 season, Boris was sent to the Phoenix Suns alongside two first round picks, for Joe Johnson. Soon upon arrival, Boris became a star of the Suns team, as he was used as an all-around player, covering all positions from point guard to center. His ability to score, assist and defend earned him the nickname 3D, and his playing motto became drive, dish, defend. In his first season with the new team, Boris averaged 13.3 points, 6.9 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 1.0 blocks per game, which earned him the NBA’s Most Improved Player award. He kept up the good form for the next couple of years, until the Suns traded him to the Charlotte Bobcats in the middle of the 2008-2009 season. In 59 games for the Bobcats in the remaining part of the season, Boris posted his career-high in points per game with 15.1, while he also had 5.9 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game. In 2011 the National Baseball Association faced a lockout and the league was shortened to 66 games, and before the 2011-2012 NBA start in December, Diaw played for JSA Bordeaux in LNB Prob B league. Once the season opened, Boris rejoined the Bobcats but in March 2012, he was waived by the club.

It wasn’t long that Bors was without engagement, as he was picked up by the San Antonio Spurs, though he only received a contract until the end of the season, however, he signed a new contract with the Spurs worth $9.2 million over two years, which significantly increased his net worth. Boris was the part of the team that won the 2013-2014 NBA Championship, defeating the Miami Heat 4-1 in the final series, and the following season Boris signed another contract with the Spurs, worth $22 million over three years, further increasing his net worth. In the next two years, Diaw’s form began to decline, until he was traded to the Utah Jazz before the start of 2016-2017 season. He played for the Jazz in 73 games and averaged 4.6 points per game, his career lowest. As a result, Boris was waived on the 13th July 2017.

Feeling that he could still play basketball at a high level, he joined the French team Levallois Metropolitans for the 2017-2018 season.

Aside from a successful club career, Boris has also played for his country; with France being one of the best European national teams in the past 20 years, Boris represented his country from 2003 until 2017 in FIBA World Championships, Olympics, and FIBA EuroBasket Championships, and so far has played in 1064 games. He has a gold medal from the 2013 EuroBasket held in Slovenia, and two bronze medals from EuroBasket, in 2005 and 2015, and a bronze medal from the 2014 World Cup.

When it comes to his personal life, Boris tends to keep hidden his most intimate details from the public eyes, therefore, no reliable information is made available about this basketball star.

He is a recognized philanthropist; back in 2015, he started the non-profit foundation, Babac’Ards, which focuses on providing sports activities to children and youths of Senegalese ancestry.

Teddy Riley Net Worth

Published

on

Edward Theodore Riley was born on October 8, 1967 in Harlem, New York, USA, and is a singer, instrumentialist, record producer and song writer. Teddy Riley started his career in 1984, and since then he has become very successful and known worldwide. Teddy is perhaps best known and praised for popularizing a new music genre, named New Jack Swing, of which he is ‘The King’.

So just how rich is Teddy Riley? Recently, sources have estimated that Teddy’s net worth is $80 million, the majority of it having been accumulated from his various activities in the music industry

Teddy Riley Net Worth $80 Million

Teddy Riley spent his childhood in Harlem: when he was five years old, Teddy started playing various instruments in church. At the age of 14, Riley began collaborating with local record producer Gene Griffin, and formed the band Kids at Work, making rap music. However the band soon split up, but three years later Teddy became more notable when he produced Kool Moe Dee`s 12 single Go See the Doctor, which entered the Billboard Hot 100, consequently increasing Teddy Riley’s early net worth.

Teddy was one of the leaders of the R&B band Guy, formed in 1987. It was also the time when the new music genre New Jack Swing was born. This genre is reflected in such songs as My Prerogative by Bobby Brown, I Want Her by Keith Sweat, and Just Got Paid by Johnny Kemp, all of which  boosted Teddy’s net worth, as did Teddy’s collaborations with Big Daddy Kane, Jane Child, The Winans, and The Jacksons, particularly when he co-produced Michael Jackson`s album Dangerous. Riley worked on such songs as In the Closet, Jam, and Remember the Time. Dangerous sold around 32 million copies, and is considered to be one of the most successful albums of New Jack Swing. Guy stopped its performances in 1992, having released two albums: Guy (1988) and The Future (1990). In 2000 Guy III was released.

In 1991 Teddy formed another group – Blackstreet. Its hits include No Diggity along with Dr. Dre and Queen Pen, Girlfriend/Boyfriend together with Janet Jackson, Ja Rule and Eve, and Don`t Leave Me. Such collaborations with famous singers helped Teddy to add to his net worth. Moreover, Teddy worked along with the Spice Girls` member Melanie B, helping her to release her solo album Hot. In particular, he worked on the production of such songs as ABC 123, Pack Your S**t, and I Believe. Riley also contributed to the production of one of Lady Gaga`s albums, in particular the track Teeth.

Teddy Riley also possessed a recording studio in Virginia Beach, however, it was destroyed by fire in 2008. Thus, it can be seen that in recent years Teddy has been working more as a producer than as a singer, so producing records has also become the main source of Teddy Riley’s net worth.

Teddy Riley keeps his personal life rather private; Teddy’s partner is Donna Roberts. He has eight children.
