Fille on Film: Veruschka
Model Verushcka landed eleven Vogue covers and has been shot by Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, and Helmut Newton. When starting out as a model under her birth name Vera, she didn't land many modeling jobs. She decided to reinvent herself, changing her name to Veruschka and dressing all black when she went on go-sees. The exotic overhall worked, and Verushcka went on to have a very successful modeling career. The over 6 foot beauty also earned a great deal of attention for a short sexy scene in the 1966 cult film "Blow Up."
