BIBA GIRL...MADDIE SMITH 1967







This has been a favourite photo of mine for a long time, It was purchased as a postcard sometime in the mid 90s.  The girl in the picture is Maddie Smith, she had a part time job working as a shop girl at Biba and also did some modelling for them, appearing in the first Biba catalogue which was photographed by Donald Silverstein. 

Barbara (Hulanicki) thought that she looked like a miniature Jean Shrimpton. She eventually moved on to become better known for her work as the Hammer Horror actress Madeline Smith, starring in Theatre of Blood with Vincent Price and Diana Rigg.
