Amanda Lear is a model, actress and recording artist from the 1960s, 70s, 80s. She has NEVER admitted to being a post-op transsexual, but her SRS in the early 1960's was performed at Dr. Georges Burou's clinic in Casablanca, Morocco (although in an interview many years later stated that being a transsexual was a ruse created by David Bowie who she lived with for a time).
At the age of 16 she went to Paris to study painting, then in 1964 to the famous St Martins School in London. During this time she started modeling for Catherine Harlé, head of the famous European model agency and became friends with Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones.
