Winter 1963: Jean Shrimpton

At the Sydney Antiques and Collectibles Fair a few weeks ago I picked up this amazing scrapbook - one amongst a collection of many - that some devoted follower of fashion collated back in the 60s. The one that I eventually decided to purchase (because I couldn't justify buying all of them) was labeled 'Winter 1963'. Each image is either advertising or editorial, obviously from the best fashion magazines, and the very creative collector compiled them as though they were a catalogue. 'Winter 1963' starts out with fur, then heads into coats, followed by evening wear, accessories and then sleepwear and lingerie. I love, love, love it.
There are so many gorgeous images to scan for you but in the meantime here are just a few of the ones that feature the hottest model of the early 60s, Jean Shrimpton.
Oh, and I just found out that apparently a film is being made about Jean's love affair with David Bailey. I'll definitely be looking out for that one although one does wonder what the fiercely private 'Shrimp' would think about it all.

Is it just me, or is this Verushka in the pink?

PS Apparently Karen Gillans has been cast for Jean's part. Not sure what to think..?
