A fine boned beauty,whose face has always appealed to me.She just exuded grace and elegance,and since not only as a model,but an agency owner she contributed alot to the fashion industry i thought she deserves her own thread.
Dutch-born Wilhelmina Cooper, whose features adorned the covers of more than 300 magazines before she and her husband started their own model agency, says probably 80% of her female models now study acting. The Wilhelmina Agency also has an office in Los Angeles,1979.
