Mandy Rice-Davies(1944-2014), Model and show girl
Sitter associated with 8 portraits
The scandalous blonde was born in Wales, the daughter of a police-officer and grew up in the West Midlands before coming to London to be a showgirl at Murray's Cabaret Club. There she was befriended by Christine Keeler and Stephen Ward and became enmeshed in 'The Profumo Affair' (1963) that toppled Harold MacMillan's government. Celebrated for her court reply about Lord Astor, 'He would, wouldn't he', she later opened two night clubs in Israel called Mandy before returning to London and publishing her autobiography.
