miss world 1968




The one-time librarian from Kempsey, New South Wales, was 18 when she won the title. For two years, she was feted like royalty. She toured Vietnam with Bob Hope and, during her reign, earned up to $1,500 a day - a fortune at the time. Two years later, Penny broke her contract with the Miss World organisers to marry Michael Clarke. Today, she has three adult children.
