Dickinson claims to have coined the title "supermodel," which she still applies to herself in the present tense. Though she proclaims herself the world's first supermodel, the term was first used regarding Jean Shrimpton [http://www.cranlucas.com/js.html] in the 1960s.
''"Back in the day I was doing runway, editorial, advertising, spokesmodeling, and public appearances. Those are five different categories. Your Twiggys and your Lauren Huttons weren't doing that. I was Versace's muse, I was Valentino's muse, I was Alaia's muse, Lancetti's muse, Calvin Klein's, Halston's. I could go on and on - but won't 'cause my brain hurts!"''
Dickinson is upfront about her extensive plastic surgery. "Everything about me is fake" as the title of her book proclaims. The US book cover lists her numerous "enhancements."[http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/006055469X] Dickinson also talks about the physical and sexual abuse she and her sister, Alexis, suffered at the hands of her late father, Ray Dickinson, when she was young.
She has appeared on 37 covers of Vogue. Dickinson also starred as a judge on the reality TV series ''America's Next Top Model'' during the first four seasons. After quitting (or possibly being fired) in the spring of 2005, she was replaced by Twiggy. She appeared in the fifth season as the photographer for one episode's photoshoot (with the theme of the photoshoot being plastic surgery), and twice during the sixth season (giving proper interview and posing tips). Dickinson has expressed disapproval for the winners of ''America's Next Top Model'', saying that they do not have enough potential to be successful.
