Does any one know this lady?

I guess this might not be the correct forum but it gets a high viewership, so here goes, I am looking for a hi-res copy of this image any suggestions?

If not Carmen Miranda, a popular performer in the WWII years, a good copy.

Looks to me like a Carmen Miranda impersonator. You might try a google image search if you haven't already. Sorry, best I can do.

That's the old Adobe color test image used for CMYK printer calibration. Haven't seen one in years.
By looking at the image and the ink percentages, one can tell if the ink density is correct and if color correction is needed.

The clue is in her hair

Fun fact: Such tests are commonly called "Shirley's" in the photo industry (apocryphally?) after the name of the model Kodak used in their first set of test/calibration prints.
