Bonnie Thomas has created an extensive Top 50s Models Album for Leonie Vernet:

Included is an interesting article from the August 9, 1954 Life magazine about Leonie's Double Life as both popular fashion model and hometown soda jerk:



Here are samples of Leonie's glamorous photos:

Yes, thank you so much, Barry!

I've moved the new photos to the Top 50's Models Album: Leonie Vernet Album. I know Bonnie Thomas will be thrilled to edit them:

I've put scans of two Leonie Vernet magazine covers in the "Members Add Photos" album: "Bride's" magazine-Summer 1953 issue, and "1000 Hints—Beauty" magazine, published by Dell in 1955. Both covers were photographed by Roger Prigent.
