Aunt Kiki was a Model

Not too long ago, a cousin of mine posted these album covers on Facebook. Her mother, my Aunt Kiki, had had a brief a modeling career before she was married. All three of the covers below were the product of just one photo session in 1957, where the photographer apparently had her make lots of sexy, pouty faces.

My favorite has to be the Ray Conniff cover, because we get to see her in a gorgeous strapless crushed red velvet gown and elbow length gloves. The guy in the back is definitely not checkin' out the sheet music!
