Profile Bio Text
former English Supermodel and actress , who graduated from Lucie Clayton`s modelling school at the age of 17 in 1960. Nicknamed `The Shrimp`, she was an icon of Swinging Sixties London, possessing some of the gamine features that also made a huge success of the younger Twiggy. She starred alongside Paul Jones in the 1967 movie Privilege, and was mentioned in the Smithereens song, "Behind the Wall of Sleep". In 1965, Shrimpton caused a sensation in Melbourne, Australia, when she arrived for the Victoria Derby race during Melbourne Cup week. She shocked everybody by wearing a daring white shift dress which ended high above her knees, a forerunner of the miniskirt which became a worldwide craze (this dress was designed and made by the young fashion designer, Colin Rolfe). To make things worse she wore no hat, stockings or gloves and wore a man`s watch, which was very unusual at the time. Shrimpton was blissfully unaware she would cause such reactions among the then prim Melbourne community and media. In her article "The Man in the Bill Blass Suit", Nora Ephron tells of the time when Jean Shrimpton posed for a Revlon ad in an antique white Chantilly lace dress by Blass. Minutes after the lipstick placard hit the drugstores, the Revlon switchboard lit up with calls from women demanding to know where they could buy the dress. (Ephron article reprinted in "Wallflower at the Orgy," a Bantam Book, July 2007.) The fashion trendsetter was also a heartbreaker to many glamorous men she knew during her time as a world famous cover girl (including a stint as the face of Yardley of London). She was once engaged to 60s photographer David Bailey, on whom the David Hemmings character in the movie Blowup was based. They met on a shoot for a Cornflakes advertisement. His friend told him she was too posh for him, but Bailey was undeterred and the two subsequently had a relationship for four years. Her other celebrated romance was with actor Terence Stamp. As one of the most beautiful couples among the trendy denizens of Carnaby Street, and other hang-outs of Mod London, the two seemed a perfect couple to outsiders, but Shrimpton dumped him, citing the actor`s narcissism. Stamp has said that the break-up pushed him into anguish and despair, while she was quoted in a newspaper interview saying she doubted he ever loved her Shrimpton eventually found a more enduring love with her photographer husband Michael Cox, with whom she has a son, born in 1981. They currently run a small hotel in Penzance, Cornwall. Her younger sister Chrissie was also an actress, romantically linked to both Mick Jagger and Steve Marriott of The Small Faces.

I was stunned as a teen to see my first pictures of Ms. Shrimpton. I often think she was Helen of Troy reincarnated, and wish they had made a movie of that woman starring her. Helen of Troy is considered in some myths to be immortal. Could it be...?

Jeanie was the most beautiful woman ever, no other model comes close to her beauty in youth. She had the perfect face and perfect cheekbones of all.

Jean Shrimpton was the Most Beautiful of the Swingin' 60's British Birds. She was the Very First, and Best of that era's Super Models. No one was ever finer. We ALL wanted to be her, or look like her. WOWeeeee!

Miss Shrimpton is the most beautiful and fascinating face of all time. Forget Liz Taylor, Loren, etc., they cannot hold a candle to her,not even Monroe. Shrimpton was so naturally beautiful and her face radiated great innocence and purity. There exists nowhere a bad photo of Jean. She disappeared from the scene of fame, too earthy and sensible to stay in the limelight. She is one of the few celebs I respect. The women of today, models and actresses, don't come close to the beauty of all beauties that was the young Jean Shrimpton. She is also humorous and self deprecating.
