Hot fashion links from the past week.
He brought us two of the silver screen's most fashionable female characters - to wit, Faye Dunaway in Chinatown and Mia Farrow in Rosemary's Baby, and this week, the beleagured Roman Polanski finally spoke out in his defense (with no mention of those two, sadly, but wouldn't that have been amazing?):
There's a documentary being made about Halston - mega!
Now that's what I call wild on fashion: Here's some footage of Peter Beard photographing Veruschka back in the day, that will blow you mind wind open, people: http://j.mp/1qc8rZ
Adriana Lima makes a comeback. I think she's so funny, this girl: http://pea.to/r6
Oh, and for anyone who hasn't yet seen it, check out the Irving Penn exhibition which I finally got around to seeing at The National Portrait Gallery. The stuff from the 40s, 50s and 60s rocks - he'd lost his sense of composition by the 80s, though, and, disappointingly there were no postcards in the gift shop (come on, like that isn't your favourite part of the museum visit). When I asked the shop assistant, she said they couldn't get copyright. Which is presumeably why the catalogue, which costs £25, was also missing all the best shots. Harumph.
