Nothing goes better together than models and rockstars. Linda Keith understandably become the apple of many a rocker’s eye, namely Keith Richards and Jimi Hendrix, and has even been credited with successfully guiding Hendrix toward success. She was a true rock and roll supermodel.
Keith is also known to be the subject of the Rolling Stones song “Ruby Tuesday.” Aside from involvement in the 60s rock scene, she is, of course, also known for striking Vogue covers from the era. Keith disappeared after the 60s rock craze and reportedly lives with her family in New Orleans – a far cry from her former life.
You might know her a little better as an actress in films like "Taxi," and "Moonlighting" but Cybill Shepard actually got her shot in the limelight when she was voted "Miss Teenage Memphis" in 1966 and won the 1968 "Model of the Year" award.
The awards led her to a successful modeling career, becoming a fashion icon during the early 70s. In fact, her appearance on the cover of Glamor in 1970 is what caught director Peter Bogdanovich's eye, ultimately earning her a role in "The Last Picture Show." These days you can catch Cybill on "The L-Word" playing alongside Jane Lynch!
Imagine having a whole career just because you look like someone else. That's exactly what happened to Linda Morand, who was discovered at art school for sharing a striking resemblance to fellow 60s icon Jackie O. Thanks to original modeling agent Eileen Ford aka, "The Grand Dame of the Modelling industry," Linda Morad found herself modeling for French haute couture shows - a first for American fashion.
Her modeling career died down shortly after, but she's become a mainstay guest of the hottest fashion events. Linda Morand's unique connection to Jackie O propelled her into the spotlight, and her runway success opened doors for future American models in the Parisian fashion scene.
Penelope Tree was one of the many models that found their way into the electrifying rock n roll circuit of the 1960s. But before that, she was a subject of Diane Arbus's captivating photographic projects at just 13 years of age.
But it was at Truman Capote's famous Black and White Ball in 1966 that people started to take notice of and she ultimately found fame as a popular supermodel. Tree married South African musician Ricky Fataar and shares two kids with him. After her split from Fataar, she got involved with renowned psycho-analyst Stuart MacFarlane, with whom she shares one child.
We would not have the famous Twiggy if it were not for Pattie Boyd, who is known to be the model who actually inspired the funky 60s look. The model was a staple of British Vogue covers but probably gained more fame from being in the middle of the most famous love triangle in rock history between George Harrison and Eric Clapton.
Boyd took to photography in her years after modeling, capturing some striking images of some of the 60s "rock gods." Her photographs have been exhibited, and her most recently in 2008 in Sydney, Australia. What a legend she has been.
