As a model in the 1970s and 80s she represented Max Factor, Revlon, Estée Lauder, L'Oréal. She appeared on the cover of the 1973 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and was twice named to Harper's Bazaar's "Ten Most Beautiful Women." She also appeared nude in the April 1973 issue of Playboy.

She worked as an actress, appearing in the Disney movie The World's Greatest Athlete (1973). She moved to Europe, continued modeling and acting, and appeared in a number of film roles in French and English,[5] as well as occasional small parts in American movies. Her best known roles were in Madame Claude (1977), and North Dallas Forty (1979) opposite actor Nick Nolte.

During Haddon's tenure as a main face for L'Oréal, sales for the Age Perfect line have increased by 50%.[6] According to the New York Times, Dayle has "shattered age taboos" with her multi-year contracts with L'Oréal and Estée Lauder, among other companies.[7]

Personal life

Clairol selected her as a spokesperson, and she later broke barriers for women over the age of 35 when she became the global face of a new anti-aging line for Estée Lauder, a first in the beauty industry. On the day that her Estée Lauder contract expired L'Oréal signed her. She now has her own company, Dayle Haddon Concepts Inc. In early 2008 she was named a UNICEF ambassador.[8]

Haddon is also the founder of a non-profit called WomenOne. The organization’s motto is "changing the world one woman at a time." [9]
