scan of a press photo of Verdy dated 28 APR 61, with caption.
i assume the photo was shot in Paris, perhaps at the House of Cardin.
f.y.i.

rg, as you know, ALL photos of Verdy are much appreciated by many of us.

Don't recall having seen a shot in which she has long (and very dark) hair.

Also, didn't know that she had an 8-year marriage to Colin Clarke, the son of Kenneth Clarke. (Thank you Mr. Google for that info.)

scan of NYCB publicity shot for JEWELS/Emeralds with Violtte Verdy, the year 1971 is handwritten on the back, but that may reflect when the photo was sent out for publicity purposes, and not necessarily when it was taken, which may have been 1967, the ballet's premiere year.
