Jean Shrimpton

Jean Shrimpton was one of the leading models of the 1960s and one of the first to be labelled a ‘supermodel’, the term Time magazine used to describe her in a 1971 article. Nicknamed ‘The Shrimp’ she was part of the new style of model and was closely associated with the work of the fashion photographer David Bailey.
