I’ve always been interested in Edie Sedgwick’s story. I tore through her biography, Edie: An American Biography, a couple summers ago, and it’s now one of my favorite reads. Her story is very tragic and sad, but there’s also a very glamorous side to her. She was a 60s it-girl, Andy Warhol’s muse, a fashion icon, a Youth Quaker, and a Superstar.
I love looking at photos of Edie from when she was at her most beautiful — from her amazing brows and bold eye makeup to her signature tights and ballerina-esque poses. Black and white stripes and black tights always remind me of Edie, so this is my outfit inspired by her!
