    Dawn was an auburn-haired enchantress from the Luton area who won the title of Miss Luton 1965. She was described as a housewife, cashier, and model. She worked under a bewildering plethora of names; Kay (Catherine) Kirkham, Dawn Grayson, Carla Higgins, Kay Stevens, Kay Stern, Dorothy Gregson, Marnie Hughes. She came to fame in the early '60s when she appeared on Health and Safety at Work posters. One of these was used as part of a safety campaign for factory workers. As her husband was a toolmaker who had several times been rushed to the hospital to remove splinters of metal from his eyes, she was very keen to use her sex appeal to help persuade workers to use safety goggles.

    Dawn's appearances from the late 1950s to late 1960s were not limited to ToCo publications and some of her earlier work was with photographer Harrison Marks. Although a more professional model than those normally depicted in Spick, Span, and Beautiful Britons, she still had the ability to portray the "girl-next-door" look that made the ToCo genre such international money earners at that time. ToCo described her as "the find of the year", "one of the very best models we've discovered", and "the epitome of symphonic sex appeal".

    It is said that she loved gardening and landscape painting.
