American born Penelope Tree was one of the most prominent British "supermodels" of the 60's, bigger than Twiggy and much more emblematic of the counter-culture movement. Her London flat was ground zero for the glam-hippie crowd, a decadent, celebrity-speckled oasis of weed-smoke, acid-rock, and mind expansion in an already zonked-out scene. Although largely forgotten by now, for a brief window in the mid 1960's, she was the face of the turned-on and dropped-out.
By the mid 70's, she dropped out of favor among the taste-makers, and dedicated her life to various charities. That's not your typical Hippie Death Goddess coda, but what the hell. That's the way it went.
