703) Suzy Parker

Suzy Parker (born Cecilia Ann Renee Parker; 1932 – 2003). American model and actress active from 1947 into the early 1960s. Her modeling career reached its zenith during the 1950s, when she appeared on the cover of dozens of magazines and in advertisements and movie and television roles.
She appeared in several Revlon advertisements as well as in advertisements for many other cosmetic companies, including Solo Products, the largest hair care product company in the country at the time. In 1956, at the height of her modelling career, she became the first model to earn $100,000 per year ($902,000 today). A song that The Beatles wrote for her, though not released on record, appeared in their 1970 documentary film Let It Be, which won the Academy Award for Best Original Score.

- "Parker was already 5'10", big-boned, and had carrot red hair, pale-green eyes, and freckles."  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzy_Parker

- "Parker had the hautiest of cheekbones and nobody angled an elbow better, but when she shook out her red hair she suggested a cool Hollywood glamour"  https://www.theguardian.com/…/guardianobituaries.veronicaho…

- "Suzy Parker, the willowy, red-headed beauty whose elegant poses on scores of magazine covers defined glamour in the 1950's and paved the way for the supermodels to follow..."  https://www.nytimes.com/…/suzy-parker-willowy-model-and-act…

- "Suzy is pretty different from her big sisters, she has red hair like carrots, her face is full of freckles, pale green eyes and she is very tall: at school, she was the tallest, teachers included."  http://www.von50.com/blog/suzy-parker/
