Her life was fascinating: she was a top-tier model in the 30's, 40's, and 50's, a classically trained dancer and acclaimed sculptor. She was married to famed photographer Irving Penn.

Penn photographed his wife, and the Times says of the results: ". . . both the woman and the clothes crackle with wit and sex appeal." I love that in a woman, or man: wit and sex appeal.
