Shrimpton and David Bailey had a close working relationship. Bailey's photographs were a large part of Shrimpton's rise to becoming a top model. Shrimpton often says that she owes Bailey her career, and he is often credited with discovering her. She was, in turn, his greatest muse, and his photographs of her helped his career immensely. Shrimpton first modelled for Bailey in 1960, and the two shortly afterward became lovers, though Bailey was married. They were in a relationship for four years, before seperating in 1964. However, the two have remained lifelong friends, and are still often photographed together.
