Jean Shrimpton Page 1
“I never liked being photographed. I just happened to be good at it,” Jean Shrimpton told The Guardian in 2011. A reluctant icon she might be, but that just makes us love her even more.
Jean Shrimpton is often credited as the world’s first supermodel, even if she herself is rather unconcerned with the title. “I never liked being photographed. I just happened to be good at it,” she told The Guardian, in an interview last year at her current secluded home operating a hotel in Cornwall, England. But while the The Shrimp may be a reluctant legend, she is a legend nonetheless. So to celebrate her 70th birthday today, we’ve compiled 25 of her best shots throughout the years. Enjoy!
