    Kathy Ireland… maybe you recognize her? It was hard to miss her between 1984 and 1994, a 10 year streak during which she appeared in every issue of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. Not to mention her appearances on countless magazine covers, including Glamour, Cosmopolitan and Harper's Bazaar. She was traveling the world by the age of 17, modeling in exotic locations and quickly reached "supermodel" fame.

    Amilya is one of our all-time favorite guests here on "The Big Idea." Her story starts when her son would, like clockwork, get extremely sick every Tuesday.

    How do you express yourself? For Betsey Johnson, self-expression is most readily found in her wild and over-the-top fashion styles that have made her so famous. But she doesn’t stop there. She’s become known not only for her style, but also for her enthusiasm for her product. At age young age of 65, she’s got more energy than a 25-year-old as she does cartwheels during her runway shows.
