Elizabeth Moskow

Elizabeth Moskow (born November 19, 1955) was a European model during the years of 1973-1981. Born in Poland, where her career catipulted, she first made a name for herself throughout the country after appearing in various well-known Polish magazines as a swimsuit model along with appearances in various billboards and print ads for an array of European products. Elizabeth has always been surrounded by talent as she belonged to a family of musicians and singers which consisted of 5 brothers and herself. Elizabeth found a new vocation aside from her love for music when she was discovered by a team of photographers shooting for an article for the Polish American Journal. Elizabeth poised while performing road construction for a class project and the upbeat Elizabeth in her construction hard hat photos became the endearing images that helped bring her to the attention of many photographers, like Krzysztof Gieraltowski. Elizabeth ultimately was guided by a photographer, Theodor Waczyk, who helped guide her career into the hands of GAGA, a Polish modeling agency. She eventually gained recognition after gracing the cover of the Polish Cosmopolitan as the "Ekstremalny Elizabeth" (translation: "Extreme Elizabeth"), a title given to her for her famous photo standing atop an aircraft wearing nothing but a swimsuit and goggles. Throughout her career, Elizabeth grew a small fan base for her modeling work while constantly traveling Europe for bookings. Elizabeth's fan base grew significantly larger when she began to steer away from modeling and gravitated toward guest spots on Polish soaps and talk shows.
In 1980, Elizabeth shot 10 episodes of the Polish tv series "Droga" playing the convoluted character, Ewelina, a spiritual, sweet and yet sometimes drugged up singer of the band "Eutanazja" (translation: "Euthanasia"). The public discovered Elizabeth's melodic voice and her talent as an actress through watching the show. Her time on "Droga" came to an end when Elizabeth decided to travel to America and fulfill her desire to see New York and become an architect. Subsequently, the character of Ewelina died of a drug overdose in "Droga."
Elizabeth Moskow is married to Michael Oravec (Michael Oravcova), lives on Long Island, and has one daughter who is also working as a print model, actress, and musical performer.
