You are mistaking Marisa Mell for Editha Dussler...I can see why, they have a similar look. Editha was a top model in the sixties and a favorite of such photographers as Henry Clarke,Bert Stern, Penn and Avedon.
Marisa Mell,though beautiful, was not a model but an actress.

They are very similar aren't they? I actually have a couple of issues of American Vogue that actually credit Marisa Mell which made me question if I had been miscrediting her all along. Now you have confirmed it. So Editha Dussler is the model with the very pouty lips?

Skorver said...

Yes, Editha does have pouty lips, but so does Marisa, hee, hee.
Marisa was featured in several fashion layouts for Vogue. You can see them on tFS link here:

It is really amazing how similar they are, isn't it ?

Hi Freya,
The model you credit as Editha in the "legs" piece by Rubartelli is really Dolores Wettach.
