A really unusual shoot by Bailey, with Penelope, Moyra Swan and Celia Hammond, from UK Vogue 1969 - not sure about the black cap wig, but both UK and US Vogue LOVED them in 68/69. Scanned by me and from my blog

Penelope Tree, Beguiling the Camera Again

YES, the model you see in the new spring campaign for Barneys New York is not your conventional spring chicken. She is Penelope Tree, the blue-blooded model who became famous in the 1960s as muse to David Bailey and Diana Vreeland but who, apart from a few isolated cases, has avoided the camera in the ensuing decades.
And how is it that Ms. Tree, whose extraterrestrial appearance and painted eyelashes made her a symbol of her era, has wound up doing catalog work? Well, it wasn’t easy to persuade her. “My first reaction was to run for the hills!” Ms. Tree wrote in an e-mail message from Cambodia, where she was working with the nonprofit group Lotus Outreach to help exploited women and children.
Ms. Tree’s brief life as a model was a difficult one. Her fashion career took off, as legend goes, after her sensational appearance at Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball in 1966. She was a supermodel and Vreeland favorite at Vogue until a skin ailment left her with facial scars that ended her career. Her relationship with Mr. Bailey ended shortly thereafter.
After Barneys had a big hit with a campaign starring Carine Roitfeld last fall, Dennis Freedman, the creative director, said he was looking for another model with impact. When Ms. Tree happened to attend a party at the store for a new Vreeland book, Mr. Freedman approached her.
“If you think about it,” he said, “there are not too many people in the world who inspired Dick Avedon, Diane Arbus, Cecil Beaton, David Bailey, Diana Vreeland and John Lennon.”
In the resulting images by Mario Sorrenti and a behind-the-scenes video, Ms. Tree appears wearing the latest Haider Ackermann, as well as a double-breasted Margiela dress and a jacket and blouse from Ann Demeulemeester. Barneys selected the clothes, she said.
“I’ve loved clothes and fashion as long as I can remember, and I’m pretty sure that will be true until almost my last gasp,” Ms. Tree said. After the insecurity she felt in her younger years, I wondered if it got easier.
“The good thing about reaching your 60s is that you have to let go to a certain extent,” she said. “Otherwise you’d be a basket case.”

She looks like she could be related to Kim Gordon with that styling.

Ahh.. I wish I look like that when I'm 60.. or like she did in her 20s.. NOW .. she's fab, it's a shame she experienced so much insecurity in her life, people criticise how ruthless fashion has 'become' when it's probably only gotten better thanks to the difficulty to sweep things under the rug.. judging by her story, it wasn't that different 40 years ago.

Thanks for sharing that, MagFan.
