[ swinging LONDON ]

Some people will not be familiar with JEAN SHRIMPTON but she was massive in the 60s and an icon of Swinging London. She is considered to be one of the world's first supermodels and appeared on covers such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Vanity Fair, etc. 
In photo-shoots Shrimpton wore all the latest fashions of the day, but it was her off-duty style that really turned her into a sartorial icon.
As a model and actress she constantly pushed the boundaries of fashion in a time when women were just beginning to break free from conforming to societies opinion of what a women should be. She was once described as the "most beautiful face" and was instrumental in the launch of the mini skirt...
I think she is still a very inspiring woman & has that certain "je ne sais quoi"... very cool.
