Jerry shot on a summer afternoon in Chelsea. A breathtaking beauty, a stunning Texas Goddess. Tall as a tree and so much fun and so bright. I could really see why the entire world fell in love with her.
She was so full of life and the camera loved her and her lioness mane of hair. The designer of the moment Ossie Clark dropped by on the day of the shoot with some bottles of champagne. I’d known Ossie from when I first came to London and his girlfriend Celia Birtwell when they shared flat in Nottinghill with David Hockney. We all toasted out collective futures that day.
