The Beauty of Retrospect: Karen Graham, 1972

The last time I showed photos of modeling legend Karen Graham on this blog, they were in black and white.  Here are three of them in color . . . all from the October 1, 1972 issue of the U.S. edition of Vogue.  (Vogue was published twice a month back then.)  

Karen Graham, then 27, was just beginning to build her reputation as a model, doing occasional ads for the Estée Lauder cosmetics company.  By the following year, she would become their full-time spokesmodel.

And as glamorous as she looks in the two pictures above, she looks just plain gorgeous in the makeup tutorial photo below.   

Karen Graham now lives in Tryon, North Carolina, in the heart of that state's horse farm country.
