Grace Coddington's Memoir is fabulous I'm enjoying it so much
I don't want it to end... reading her account
of a photo shoot in 1982 by Bruce Weber with
Talisa Soto and Bruce Hulse
reminded me of this beautiful American model of Puerto Rican descent.

Talisa was discovered by Bruce Weber and in an extract from
Vogue Model she says:

"Bruce was a movie director at heart.  I always felt we were creating
a mini independent film, instead of working on a typical photo shoot.
I will be forever grateful for his huge role in launching my
successful modelling career."

She gave up modelling in the
late 1980s and took acting lessons...leading her to fame as a Bond girl in
Licence to Kill
