50's Beauty Jean Patchett ❤

American model (b. Feb. 16, 1926, Preston, Md.—d. Jan. 22, 2002, La Quinta, Calif.), became a photographic icon during the 1950s and appeared on over 40 magazine covers. Her defining images were the ones in which Irving Penn captured her seated in a café chewing pensively on a string of pearls and the Erwin Blumenfeld Jan. 1, 1950, Vogue cover, which featured her perfectly penciled left eye, pouty red lips, and a trademark natural beauty mark. She ended her modeling career in 1963.
