There was some debate going on over the image I posted of the Avec Plaisir No.5 cover and if the model was actually Ann Austin. I wasn’t aware there was any doubt, as I immediately recognised it as Ann, but to confirm, here is the original 35mm Pamar slide of the same shot sent over by Kevin. I’ve also had it confirmed by an avid Ann collector, that it is indeed Ann, with the only outstanding question being why is this the only shot we’ve found of Ann posing with this glass and where are the other shots, if there are any?
One thing that no one seems to know though, is what happened to Ann, as she seems to have disappeared after her modelling career and is she still with us today? Anyone know?
