Who's that girl?

Roger Dean created the original Virgin artwork in 1970, which over the years has developed into one of the most recognisable logos in the world.
The model in the image appeared again and again as the logo evolved, starting off in our mail order record service when I was 20 years old. It was still present when we launched Virgin Records in 1973.
However, we have sadly lost track of her. We think she is now living in Australia, and would love to track her down.
This year is the 40th anniversary of Virgin Records - our first four albums, including a certain Tubular Bells, were released on May 25th 1973. So what better time to find the original Virgin logo model?
Of course, she may not want a picture without her clothes on anymore! But it would be great to do another photoshoot four decades on. Whether or not we can track her down, it is wonderful to look back on this beautiful artwork.
Do you know her? Get in touch below, or using the hashtag #VirginModel.
