Suzy Parker

I'm obsessed with 1950's elegance.   Yes, there are fashion icons such as Jackie O, but in my opinion, no one can really outdo Suzy Parker.

She was an American model and actress and sister of famous model Dorian Leigh.  She was reportedly one of the first supermodels (yes, back in the 50's).   On her rise to the top, Suzy became the face of Chanel and close friends with Coco Chanel.    She was involved in a car accident and retired from modeling and acting in 1964.  She lived in California with her husband and four children.  Sadly, she died in May 2003.
