June Palmer – Same Style, Different Hats! (1966)

Two shots of June Palmer on different magazine covers from the same photo shoot, but wearing different hats! The first is from Practical Photography (June 1966) and the second from the US publication Man Junior (November 1967). In both June is wearing a two piece white swimming costume and posing with a tulip in front of a 1950’s bull fighting poster, but wearing different hats.

The shoot obviously had a Spanish theme to it with the poster in the background and the two types of hats she is wearing, a Sombrero cordobés the smaller black hat and the more well known larger Sombrero. I prefer the first cover as it is just a standard photo of June, whereas the Man Junior cover looks to be lower quality giving it an almost painting feel to it.

Thanks to both John W and Paul from Firebird Records for the two different covers of June
