The stunning 1950s model Jean Patchett in a head-to-toe scarlet outfit from a Vogue editorial some time around 1950. You just don’t see eyebrows like those any more do you..?
I was thinking though, a few of my mum’s friends are called Jean or Jeannie and perhaps they were named for Jean Patchett. Do you think she was the reason Jean was a popular name for children born in the late 1940s and 1950s? Do you know of any other famous Jeans from that time?
