    As there doesn't seem to be a thread for this fantastic model, I'll start it off with the exquisite cover shot of UK Vogue June 1974 and one image from the editorial inside, both shot by David Bailey (image source - ebay.com).

    Marie has published several books - Catwalk : the art of model style (1984) and Bodypure (1995), and has recently released her autobiography, which is a great read (image source - amazon.co.uk).

    Trouble And Strife was a book published in 1980 by David Bailey, containing a series of 81 photos in Duotone of Marie, which caused a stir when published, owing to the nudity and S/M overtones of some of the shots. The phrase 'trouble and strife' is cockney rhyming slang for 'wife'. (image source - ebay.co.uk).

    Another one of Marie's many UK Vogue covers, this one from December 1975, shot by David Bailey (image source - www.vogue.co.uk).

    UK Vogue reports that this issue is also notable for Iman's first Vogue appearance: "A 20-year-old Somali girl discovered by photographer Peter Beard when he was filming on the Northern Frontier of Kenya. Now in New York on her first journey out of Africa, she's been snapped up as a model but intends to study languages too."
