At age 17 Penelope Tree attended the Masked Black and White Ball Party thrown by Truman Capote. There she was spotted by photographers Cecil Beaton, Richard Avedon and Diana Vreeland ,who all took credit for discovering Penelope. The next day Penelope was already commissioned by American Vogue to be photographed by Avedon, who was so taken by Penelope’s appearance he said; ‘Don’t touch her. She is perfect’.

Tree rose to stardom at a time when there was great social shift; her personal style was a statement, coming from a place of privilege to become a poster child for wild ‘60s youth culture.
