One of the Greatest Models of All Time: 50 Gorgeous Photos Defined Fashion Styles of Sunny Harnett in the 1950s

Born 1924 in Brooklyn, New York as Annemarie Margot Elfreda Harnett, American blonde model "Sunny" Harnett can be found in fashion magazines throughout the 1950s — including frequently on the cover of Vogue — and was often a model of choice by photographer Edgar de Evia.

Sunny's career lasted 13 years; from 1949 to 1963. After her retirement from modeling, she worked as an assistant to Eileen Ford of Ford Models.

In 1987, Sunny suffered severe burns to her body due to a fire at the home; she succumbed a few days later and died, aged 63.

Sunny was one of the top models of her time and appeared on many covers - including Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Glamour. Harper′s Bazaar ranks her as one of the 26 greatest models of all time.
