PHOTO OF THE DAY EXTRA : THAT DUMMY'S GOT GREAT FACE!

Since the 1950's one of the worlds top Mannequin designers has been South African born Adel Rootstein, it was only natural she would find inspiration in some of the worlds most beautiful if not famous faces! One of those was none other than Joan's and in the early 80's stores worldwide displayed their stylish wares on mannequin's created in the image of Joan.. I first saw one of these in a book store window in 1989, when Joan's novel 'Prime Time' was topping the bestsellers list and she was due to appear there for a signing.. The store had decked the window out in silk and lace, it's centrepiece a stylishly dressed mannequin, the image of Joan! Here is a rare photo of one of them.. Thanks to Joan for sharing this shot!!
