Because of the potential shame to the family, Dorian and her parents agreed that she would not use her surname professionally, but would go by her first and middle names, “Dorian Leigh.” In some sense, it mattered little, since models were not known to the public by name in the 1940s.
Dorian was quick to get impatient with this situation, so she marched into her employer's office and told him she didn't like the way he was running things.
Dorian worked at reconciling the contradictions of her upbringing with her needs and hopes, but unlike many of her peers, she sometimes transcended her enculturation, usually maintained her autonomy, made and owned her choices.

 Fashion and Design - Supermodels - Made In Italy On Line
In the late forties and early fifties models such as Lisa Fonssagrives (married to fashion photographer Irving Penn), Jean Patchett, and Dorian Leigh emerged, and their names were well-known in the fashion and advertising industry, and sometimes appeared in the New York gossip columns.
The Miss Rhinegold contest plastered the faces and names of many models and aspiring models on New York's busses and subway cars during the fifties, and the yearly winner became famous, at least in the New York area.
John Robert Powers and Harry Conover were among the first model agents, but Eileen and Jerry Ford took the business to the next step in the early fifties, and made Suzy Parker, Dorian Leigh's younger sister, into a star.

 Photography of seduction / Avedon's rediscovered '50s fashion work at Fraenkel
Richard Avedon strolls around Jeffrey Fraenkel's stark blond wood and white-painted gallery, examining the installation of his latest exhibition, "Made in France," a collection of recently found prints from his days in Paris as the chief photographer for Harper's Bazaar.
They are 8-by-10s, all of the haute monde models of the day -- Suzy Parker, Dorian Leigh, Dovima, Carmen, China Machado -- wearing the satins, silks, laces, gazars and general opulence of Dior, Balmain, Mme.
The art of photography is the art of seduction, or as Avedon says, "The moment you stop to look, you've been picked up." And nothing has stopped more fashionistas and beauty voyeurs than Avedon's stunning fashion photography, particularly his precedent-smashing work of the late '50s, of which these 27 prints are some of his best.
