Modeling mogul Eileen Ford passed away Wednesday at the age of 92.

Ford set up the iconic modeling agency in New York City in 1946 along with her husband Jerry, and it soon became one of the most successful in the business.

A number of stars took to Twitter to pay tribute to the Ford Models founder, including British beauty Erin O’Connor, who tweeted:

The agency has represented supermodels including Elle Macpherson, Christy Turlington, Jerry Hall, Stephanie Seymour, Christie Brinkley and Twiggy, and actresses including Brooke Shields, Kim Basinger, Courteney Cox, Lindsay Lohan and Sharon Stone.

The books have also boasted Emily Ratajkowski, the star of Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ video, Israeli beauty Bar Refaeli, and even Martha Stewart, who modelled in her 20s during the 1960s.

Ford ran the agency for 50 years before retiring.
