Living Doll

Yesterday's post featured a beauty I had almost forgotten about.  Miss Gemma Ward completely captivated me sometime during my college years.  I remember the first time I saw her (or at least really noticed her).  I was getting my hair highlighted (as I did every 4 weeks back then) and was sipping my fresh squeezed limeade and flipping through Harper's Bazaar.  It was then that my jaw dropped.  This other-worldly beauty was acutally a real person?  This wasn't a doll?  Someone's eyes can be that huge?  A face that symmetrical?  And flawless?  I asked my hairdresser Matthew if he's heard of this Gemma Ward character?  He giggled and scolded me for not knowing, "And I thought you read Vogue monthly..."   From then on I took note.  I adored her.  When Heath Ledger passed, and Gemma left the modeling world I cursed her name.  Silly, girl, giving up her amazing career to mourn! (How could she!?)  She did return earlier this year, and I'm hoping we'll be seeing much more of her in the future.  Below is the spread that introduced me this amazingly beautiful model.
