I actually read that she only wore a mini skirt/dress to the Melbourne Cup because the people that supplied her with the fabric for her clothes were stingy and didn't give her enough fabric since her clothes were made for her when she was in Melbourne.

^ I read that too. She said something along the lines of 'So the miniskirt didn't come about because of Mary Quant, it was because the people who made my outfit [can't quite remember the company's name...] was much too stingy with the fabric!' I thought it was pretty funny

I'm so glad to see people remembering Jean; I always thought she was THE greatest model!!! Those older editorial pics (mostly by Bailey) are priceless! Thanks to all!

I found this picture of Jean on www.vogue.co.uk. It is a British Vogue cover for the 1963 May issue.

Have you ever considered how many of today's models will merit a thread of their own 40 years from now...!? Jean was truly in a class by herself! I would seriously consider looking her up just to meet her if I was anywhere near where she lives today; I can't say that about almost any other celebrity!!
