Paper Dolls: Evelyn Tripp

Evelyn Tripp

Evelyn Tripp

Evelyn Tripp was a favorite model of the 1950’s and ‘60’s, due to her dramatic features and willowy stature. She was uncommonly beautiful and graceful, exemplifying the glamour of postwar American fashion.

The enchanting couture of the day could not have found a better muse than Evelyn Tripp. She appeared on over 40 magazine covers including Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. Her sleek, structured frame and easy, classic style showcased the tailored lines typical of the era.

Evelyn was considered one of the most versatile models in the world of fashion. She was photographed by the best. Original prints of her image command top dollar today.

Evelyn's beauty is timeless. Her stunning profile, swanlike neck and doe eyes still mesmerize.

Each set is unique. The doll and clothes are magnetic.

Thank You to Karen Eaton-Hinz and Jennifer Eaton, Evelyn's sister and niece, for encouraging the design of this paper doll and her expanding wardrobe.
