Jean Dawnay
1941

Dawnay was one of the original supermodels. She was the first Englishwoman to model for Christian Dior, and her work for that fashion house, as well as Vogue and Balenciaga catapulted her to stardom in the 1950s. At the beginning of the next decade, she quite literally met her prince – a Russian descendant of Catherine the Great – and became Princess George Galitzine.
