Style Focus: Edie Sedgwick

There are many style icons from the past and present that we take inspiration from, but the one lady who does it for me more than anyone is Andy Warhol's swinging 60's muse Edie Sedgwick. I find everything about her fascinating; her character, story and style and she definitely reaffirms for me that you can never wear too much eyeliner, too fake eyelashes and the bigger the earrings the better! Also, that tights and leotards are perfectly acceptable attire.

Her story was tragic but in her short 28 years, she created one of the most iconic looks and styles of all time and was one of the first ladies who earned the title of an 'It Girl'.

Love her.
