She is a beauty!

because of her hair style she reminds me of the comics character "Miss Holmes" from the Buck Danny, Franco-Belgian comics series, created by Jean-Michel Charlier and Victor Hubinon, which chronicles the adventures of a trio of pilots in the United States Navy.

Here is a scan from the album Les Mystères de Midway (The Mysteries of Midway) (page 39, plate J 083 B):
