Resolved Question: Who was the beautiful
Does anyone know the name of the beautiful blond in the movie poster for the Robert Altman film, READY TO WEAR (also known as Pret-A-Porter)?
Here is an image of the poster:

Thanks for your help! Here's one more image of the blond on the poster - this shows the cover of the movie's soundtrack CD.
