Mini Biography:

Jean Shrimpton is an English Supermodel and actress. Nicknamed "The Shrimp", she was an icon of Swinging Sixties London, possessing some of the gamine features that also made a huge success of the younger Twiggy. Her face appeared on the covers of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Vanity Fair magazines. She starred alongside Paul Jones in the 1967 movie Privilege.
She graduated from Lucie Clayton's modelling school at the age of 17 in 1960.

The fashion trendsetter was also a heartbreaker to many glamorous men she knew during her time as a world famous cover girl (including a stint as the face of Yardley of London). She was once engaged to 60s photographer David Bailey.

Shrimpton eventually found a more enduring love with her photographer husband Michael Cox, with whom she has a son, born in 1981. They currently run a small hotel in Penzance, Cornwall. Her younger sister Chrissie was also an actress, romantically linked to both Mick Jagger and Steve Marriot of The Small Faces.
