Wallflower Vintage Presents: Jean Patchett

Iconic Vogue Model Jean Patchett.

You may not know her by name, but Jean was (in my mind) the first real super model. In fact, the October 1950 issue of Vogue featured Jean on almost every page of the feature section. In this particular issue she had five full page illustrations, four partial page illustrations and four advertisements!

If you want to know more about Jean Patchett, please go to this amazing website lovingly put together by her daughter and cousin. It is a lovely tribute to Jean. And the photos are simply breathtaking.
