60s Factory Girl
Edie Sedgwick is a personal favorite icon of mine. She was a 60s "IT GIRL", a superstar in Andy Warhols New York City Factory underground art scene. She battled drug addiction and fame, along with personal tragedies that amounted to losing everything she had, and eventually dying of an overdose at the age of 28. She had a tumultuous relationship with her family, and ran away to New York City and became a close friend of Andy Warhol. That relationship eventually soured, and after awhile, Edie was committed to a hospital in her hometown of Santa Barbara, CA. She lived and died in a beautifully tragic way. Her look is a bit difficult to describe, but I would say it was kind of a "Groovy Mod" type style. She often wore leotards with leggings, a look she created out of sheer laziness, according to her. However, she often donned chandelier earrings, newsboy caps, mod mini dresses, and lots of black eyeliner with huge false lashes a la Twiggy. She was indeed a "divine one".
