Madeline Smith, by Biba

Madeline modelling for Biba, photos by Donald Silverstein.


  1. Great photos Mark, I've not seen these before. What's interesting is that they show Maddie with a completely different silhouette from her 70s persona; clever photography or stout foundation garments? Very much of their time. :-)

    1. Haha! Nicely put Matin ;) My own theory is Maddie was initially a bit of a late bloomer. Take a look at this photo too from (I imagine) the early 70s

      Keep your eyes out for some more Maddie pics on here soon :)

    2. I see what you mean. It looks like her eyes were always impossibly large even if other parts took their time getting there! Such a beautiful woman. Looking forward to more pics (ideally ones featuring Maddie in stout foundation garments if poss).
      Cheers and keep up the good work.

  2. Just realised my mistake re that photo, it was of course 1969 when Maddie was just 19/20. I imagine the Biba pics here were of a similar year or maybe earlier. As such it's perhaps not surprising she was a little smaller than she would later become. Here's a fact for you as well - when she filmed The Vampire Lovers in 1970, she was still very much a novice in love if you get my drift.
