Suzy Parker-Fashion Icon


Suzy Parker enjoyed a multifaceted career as a model (the signature face for Coco Chanel), fashion editor, photographer, and actress. She was the first model to make more than $100 an hour and $100,000 a year, and was the inspiration for the character portrayed by Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face (she also made a brief appearance in the film).

I thought and think she was one of the top ever as a model.I do not think we have figures like the one Suzy had around today.She posed naturally in very difficult clothes to sport.The Haute Couture of that day was hard to wear by any stretch of the imagination.But I think her assciation with Chanel and Chanel's affinity towards her put her above and beyond.Today Suzy Parker is big and I think she will continue to be as long as there are people who look and actually see whatis before them.
