Fashion Icons: Britt Ekland

22 Jul

Well, as you may have noticed, this is a series I’ll be doing throughout summer – fashion icons, mainly from the 1960s. I wasn’t sure how persistent I would be at making this series because I tend to change my mind quickly, but I really enjoy doing these collages and trying out similar outfits and make up, and, you seem to enjoy it as well so I’ll continue.

1960s Britt Ekland, Beautiful

Britt Ekland, an actress and big-blue-eyed Swedish beauty was born on 6 October 1942 in Stockholm. Today we’ll take a look at her style from 1960s and 1970s. Britt’s fashion path was similar to many sixties actresses, models and singers; she started the decade in a classic, elegant Mod look, and around 1967/68 embraced the psychedelic hippie look that was getting more and more popular. It’s funny when you look at the pictures, one moment she’s a sixties gal clad in Mod A-line dresses with heavy make up, and the next thing you know she’s wearing flared trousers, long coats and floral dresses.

My Inspirations for May

31 May

My darling buds of May or the things that inspired me the most in May were Modigliani, Soutine, Shelley’s essay A defence of poetry, Elizabeth Barrett-Browning, book Jane Eyre, 1960s fashion, Manic Street Preachers; especially the songs from their upcoming album, Joy Division, Naked Lunch by Burroughs, Britt Ekland, Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton, The Repulsion and Catherine Deneuve.

Since the month of May is very dear to me, I can only say:

”Faded the flower and all its budded charms,
Faded the sight of beauty from my eyes,
Faded the shape of beauty from my arms,
Faded the voice, warmth, whiteness, paradise –
Vanished unseasonably at shut of eve…” (Keats)
