Karen Graham

In 1969, however, her life was changed forever when she shopped at the Bonwit Teller store in Manhattan one day.

As Graham remembered in a 1999 interview, she had started chatting with Mrs Ford on the stairs, and by the time they were outside, Mrs Ford handed Graham her card and suggested that she think about becoming a model.
