Kara Young is a former American fashion model, actress, and entrepreneur who was born in San Francisco, California. She was the child of an African American mother and a white father.
Kara appeared on a lot of magazine covers, especially Vogue, Elle, Glamour and the other major fashion magazines. She did some work for Playboy (Germany). She was a Victoria's Secret model for a while. Young was active in the late '80s and early '90s, then kind of faded from the modelling scene.
However, while she may have stopped modelling, she certainly didn't stop getting publicity. She was a co-founder of Hair Rules, a hair care product line and NYC salon. She also was an entertainment news correspondent for Fox News Channel. Now, she doesn't need any jobs, and that brings us to our next topic.
Kara really struck gold with her relationships. She married Sante D'Orazio in 1994, but they divorced in 1998. That was only the beginning.

Then, she dated both A. J. Benza and Donald Trump. The three of them argued about whether or not she left A. J. for Donald on the Howard Stern Show on May 10, 2001. A.J., then a columnist for the Daily News (and the host of the legendary "E! Mysteries & Scandals"), was being interviewed on the radio when The Donald called in. Trump graciously just wanted to say that Kara had dumped him, opening the field for A.J. Then Kara herself, who must have been listening in, called to smooth things over. However, not long after, she ultimately dropped both of them.

The Trump/Benza saga was just the warm-up for the main act. In 2005, Kara found her billionaire, but it wasn't Trump. Kara married billionaire Peter Georgiopoulos, the founder of the General Maritime Corporation and a big Wall Street dealmaker.
Now in the lap of luxury, Young lives in New York City with Georgiopoulos and her two sons, Nick and Dino, in a double-wide townhouse in the West Village. She is an executive member of the Board of Directors for Action Against Hunger.
Kara remains a celebrity and is always a joy to see. Her name also gets thrown around a lot because of her association with Trump, who is always a magnet of publicity. However, Kara is happily married and long over all of that.
