Models of the 60s
There are already threads for models of the 70s, 80s and 90s, so it's about time we have one thread devoted to the models of the 60s. Some of the more famous models who worked in the 60s already have their own threads, such as Twiggy, Verushka and Jean Shrimpton.
My knowledge of the models if this era is pretty limited, but I will try to make a little list:
Wilhelmina (NE): Hailing from the Netherlands, Wilhelmina became very successful in the beginning to mid 60s. She later started a great agency but died from lung cancer in 1980.
Jean Shrimpton (UK): The muse of David Bailey and one of a more natural breed of model in the early 60s.
Twiggy (UK): The superstar fashion icon. Had a relatively brief career, but massively successful.
Celia Hammond (UK): A many time Vogue cover star, one of Bailey's favourites. Most of her work was between 1963 and 1968.
Pattie Boyd (UK): Rather successful model during the 60s.
Ingrid Boulting (UK): Also rather successful.
Lauren Hutton (US): One of the few American superstars of the 60s. Huge commercial success, yet high fashion.
Verushka (DE): The first true Amazon in fashion. The baroness of sculptured perfection. Very successful from 1964 to 1968/9.
Donna Mitchell (?): The muse of Bob Richardson and sometimes Helmut Newton. A favourite with British Vogue and American Bazaar.
Samantha Jones (?): Brunette cover model.
Karen Graham (US): Successful commercially and won many covers. She had staying power and continued through the 70s.
Marisa Berenson (US): The socialite model of the 60s. A big favourite with American Vogue, also a Warhol star briefly. Of Swiss, Lithuanian, Italian, French and Egyptian heritage and the granddaughter of Elsa Schiaparelli.

I found an amazing site a few weeks ago dedicated to all the models of the 60's. It had tons of pictures of all the models and even had headsheets from Wilhemina agency when it was at the top!
I'll post a bunch of stuff from it in a few days.
I got interested in models from the 60's.
Would be helpful if you posted some pics and names of female models from the times of edie sedgwick .. since i'm having problems finding them on internet.
