THE PROPERTY OF BARONESS GABRIELLE VON CANAL
With her blond hair and bright blue eyes, Baroness Gabrielle von Canal, better known simply by her first name, has been a fixture in the modeling world for the past thirty years.

Operating through the Ford Modeling Agency, Gabrielle was the face of Revlon for several years. She also graced the covers of magazines such as Harper's Bazaar and Town & Country, and can be recognized for her recent television ad campaigns for the Oil of Olay "Pro-Vital" line.
