Style Icon: Edie Sedgwick
Updated: Jul 29, 2019
Adding onto my Style Icon blog posts is 60s it-girl, Edie Sedgwick. A wealthy socialite turned muse of artist Andy Warhol, she starred in many of his underground films like Poor Little Rich Girl and Chelsea Girls. Even though Edie Sedgwick's moment of fame was very short lived of less than ten years (partially due to her death at only 28 years old, she had a traumatizing childhood and used drugs to cope), she was very influential within that short period of time. Named as the "Girl of the Year" by Life magazine in 1965, the 60s trendsetter remains a fashion icon to this day.
Her look includes: statement chandelier earrings, black tights, leopard fur coat, matching sets, black eyeliner, high neck tops and dresses, bracelet cuffs, big circular or squared sunglasses, babydoll dresses, trench jackets, hats, silk scarves for hair, and shift dresses.
(P.S. there is a film called Factory Girl about Edie Sedgwick played by Sienna Miller. The movie received very mixed reviews, and has been criticized for being a Hollywoodized version of reality. However, it might be worth watching if you are fascinated by her like I am, and might find it to be entertaining).
