Death- Obituary, German model Susanne Schöneborn Has Died, What happened?
Susanne Schöneborn, a German model who appeared on eight Vogue covers in the United States, has died.

According to vogue.com, chöneborn wore her hair in a close-cropped style, similar to that of jewelry designer Elsa Peretti, and her grin was as bright as any Tiffany diamond. On a phone call, her former lover Bob Menna claimed, “Her smile was the sunrise and the sunset.”
Schöneborn, who loves the sun and has a positive attitude, faced her pancreatic cancer diagnosis with the same tenacity and bravery as her parents. The model was the daughter of a German medical father and a Jewish Hungarian mother who met during World War II and later reunited in Germany to raise their three children.
Schöneborn, the youngest of the siblings, was born on April 5, 1943, in West Berlin, and came to Paris at the age of 20 to pursue modeling, first for Marc Bohan at Christian Dior and then as a house model for Coco Chanel herself.
