Contortionist or model? Here she is. One cannot be a model fan without paying tribute to the greats. Meet Veruschka. One of the ripest models of the '60s. The German countess arrived in NYC and her amazonian looks quickly took the city by storm. At 6'1", with size 13 feet, she had the keen ability to seduce with her limbs, and she did so all over the world with her boyfriend photographer, Franco Rubartelli (who captured her infamous body paint photos). Italian film buff? Then you've seen her famous scene in Blowup. If not — a Fab '60s Antonioni mod film you should Netflix. At the beginning of the scene she announces, "Here I am." Her costar David Hemmings declared, "She moves like nobody on earth." Meet Veruschka, and you'll know what he meant . . .
