This is the only time to my knowledge that Dick Clark ever was on the cover of the ever popular SEVENTEEN MAGAZINE...and it's so appropriate that the model wore a typical fashion that was so very well known on Early American Bandstand--and that is the jumper skirt. There were also jumper dresses--and of course the Catholic school girl jumper uniforms with the white blouses--all of which were seen on American Bandstand. The model on SEVENTEEN cover is wearing the jumper skirt that you will recall seeing AB Regular Arlene Sullivan wear a number of times on the show. Below are some of the popular AB Regulars wearing various jumper fashions.
