Victoria's Secret[edit]

Goodacre was a primary lingerie and hosiery model for the relatively new Victoria's Secret company in its mail-order catalogs and retail stores in the 1980s, and she appeared extensively in the catalogs. She, Stephanie Seymour, and Dutch model Frederique helped Victoria's Secret grow from a new company to one of the world's giants in women's lingerie, hosiery, swimwear, and clothing.[1][2][3]

Personal life[edit]

Goodacre was born in Lubbock, Texas, but grew up in Boulder, Colorado.[4] She is the daughter of real estate broker William Goodacre, of Boulder, and sculptor Glenna Goodacre, a native of Lubbock who resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her mother is now married to Dallas attorney C.L. Mike Schmidt. Goodacre has one brother named Tim.

Goodacre married Harry Connick Jr. in 1994 in a Catholic wedding mass at St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans. Together they have three daughters: Georgia Tatum (born April 17, 1996), Sarah Kate (September 12, 1997), and Charlotte (born June 26, 2002). The family currently lives in New Canaan, Connecticut.
