suzy parker (1932 – 2003)

suzy followed in her sister's footsteps and entered the world of modeling at the age of fifteen. she and sister dorian rose to the top of the profession, working with brilliant photographers. suzy made the leap into films and during her movie career that began in 1957 as a dancer in 'funny face' and on through the sixties, she worked with gary cooper, cary grant, and joan crawford. nothing shabby for the stunning gal who left films to raise her family. none other than coco chanel was the godmother to her daughter.
