Shrimpton was "discovered" by Bailey, with whom she enjoyed a very public four year romance. The first supermodel, and the highest-paid model of the 1960s, she was the face of "Swinging London." Shrimpton later told a reporter for The Guardian, "I never liked being photographed. I just happened to be good at it."
