Dorian Leigh, 1917–2008 (American supermodel)

* Texan beauty, Dorian Leigh, was one of the earliest modelling icons of the fashion industry. She is considered one of the first supermodels, and was well known in the United States and Europe.

In 1952, when she was 35 years old, Richard Avedon photographed her for Revlon's most famous advertising campaign, Fire and Ice.

Her New York Times obituary noted that Leigh "combined pristine blue eyes, curling eyelashes, an arresting intelligence and intoxicating sexuality to become one of history’s most photographed models." The Guardian praised her "aerodynamic eyebrows."

Her stellium of planets in Taurus (including Sun, Moon and Venus) apparently manifested in exceptional good looks while Aries rising propelled her pioneering spirit.
