Love this girl. I just saw the movie “Factory Girl” based on Edie Sedgwick’s life-story. She is best known as one of Andy Warhol’s muses and acted in several of his movies. And if that isn’t enough she also had a short flirt with Bob Dylan.
Even though she struggled with drug addictions and eating disorders – she was so full of life and style and inspired a generation of girls to cut their hair short and experiment with dramatic eye-makeup, big earrings and black stockings. In-fact she is known as the girl with the black stockings because of her outfits consisting nothing more than a leotard, opaque tights and a sweater.
Edie was an it-girl of the 60s, and still seems to inspire. Christian Dior was inspired by her and dedicated one of their catwalk-shows to her look.
