Tabloid Modeling Gig

I haven’t absolutely confirmed that this is Wilma Martinez, but I am fairly certain that it is. She does have a history of modeling western style clothing, but I’ve never seen her appear in supermarket tabloids, this being an issue of the Midnight/Globe from 1977. Interestingly, Wilma also frequently modeled for sewing and crochet magazines. Some of these documents will be posted here at a later date.
