Margaux Hemingway, November 1982

Margaux Hemingway, for those too young to know, was the granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway. She was a 6 foot tall model who got into acting as well (like her younger sister Mariel). Margaux took her own life in 1996 at the age of 42.

In the mid-1970s, as a 22 year old, she starred in the film Lipstick, which was supposed to launch her crossover from modeling to acting. But Mariel, who also appeared in the film, is the one who benefited most, and Margaux is said to have felt largely passed over by the results. Either way, the film is really jacked up.

The cover of the November 1982 issue of PHOTO was shot by Mario Scavullo. Not sure if it's suppose to relate to Margaux's film debut, but to us, the brows trump the lipstick anyway.
