Wasn't she wonderful?
yes indeed, and that Hair.
She was my all time favorite model. I idolized her in the 60s when I would look in the mirror with my ice blue Yardley lipstick and try and emulate the Shrimpton pout!!
So we must all be of that era! Q-me too. my mother got all the Vogues-at the time twice monthly-and I poured over them. She told me I looked like the Shrimp. (I did not -though I have worn my hair off and on in the shrimpton mode as in her honor) What a kind motherly gesture to lessen the pain of braces -but I lived on that for years. pgt
OMG [I just had to] her hair! Shrimply beautiful.
I adored Jean Shrimpton, around that same time [as I foggily recall] Verushka also appeared and, to contrast even more, on came Lauren Hutton, but the Shrimp was always my favorite of the era. Looks like we all pouted in the mirror!
I have never seen nor heard of her, because I guess in East Germany we did not hear or see anything meaningful from the outside world!But, she was (is?) a beauty! Lovely colors! SO NOW!My life is an endless education! : )
What a fabulous picture of Jean Shrimpton, I have never seen this one before, her hair is amazing in this shot. I am really enjoying your lavender posts, one of our guestrooms is painted in shades of lavender and though I say it myself it works fabulously with the antique dark wood furniture.
How did Terrence Stamp's leg get in there?
MDE- you are so right omg-I second that.VA- it will be easy to catch up! she is everywhere now- I have another post or 2 about her right here. the colors are wonderful I agree.Flo, come join the Shrimp (what should we call it) the shrimp cocktails? shrimpers? surely she already has a fan club though?
Dash- the hair the hair! lavender does work beautifully with dark pieces- I had posted some photographs earlier this week Victoria Thorne took at an inn in germany and the dark wood there was perfect against the lavender-and I imagine with some pale yellow and greens, whites adds the perfect touch.
Ancient one- You will have to ask the Shrimp about that!
What a great picture. I've never seen this one before, taken in the year I was born. She's gorgeous, definitely one of my favourite ever models. Hope all's good with you xx
What a beauty!And a beautiful photo/
Christina, I love this one and doesn't every woman love JS- apparently she exuded the perfect beauty without the rivalry- that is a beauty.Ann- we are all in agreement on this one!
