Poor Little Heiress

This is Edie Sedgwick, the It girl of the 1960s Andy Warhol set. She was known for her fabulous wealth, her delicate psyche and her copious drugs use. And her beauty, of course. Although when I look at photos of her, it's not so much her looks I notice as something disturbing... as if she's brain damaged...

Edie has become something of a role model for young girls. In my late teens I was entranced by her childlike vulnerability - but apart from her cute '60s dresses, dangly earrings and false eyelashes, there's not much going on... that spaced out, size zero look is style without brains.
