Jerry Hall & Antonio Lopez
Following a car accident, Texas teenager Jerry Hall used the insurance money she received to move to France with her sister. She lived in Paris where she shared an apartment with Grace Jones and immersed herself in the nightlife. Soon after she met Fashion Illustrator Antonio Lopez and her modelling career began in earnest.
Hall & Lopez became best friends, artistic partners, and eventually lovers. They moved in together and Lopez introduced her to his connections in the art and fashion worlds including Andy Warhol.
Hall wrote of Lopez in her memoir My Life In Pictures:
"Antonio taught me so much about make-up and style. When I got to Paris, I was wearing blue eye shadow from eyelash to eyebrows, pink right up my cheeks and pink lipstick….I used to sit for hours with his drawings of me and copy the make-up… I loved the way he drew me; he was the only person who ever got my mouth just right.”
