I watched this film, some time back; and yet, once again, I was intrigued by the short and tragic life, of Edie Sedgwick.
From the film; it seemed that she was doomed to a path of destruction; by choosing to stick with Andy Warhol (who was widely criticized to be the one who brought her depending on drugs); but one has to remember that it were those hay days; that Edie was shown to; and had taken the world by storm!
SHE WAS, THE, IT Girl;
She's like the present day Kate Moss; setting trends; and having girls all over; falling head over heels; trying to get that little piece of Edie;
She's known for being loud and avant garde; wearing whatever she wants; with no care with how the world sees her;
(The clothes in the movie were just amazing! Tons of sequins, and gorgeous, gorgeous chandelier earrings!)
In a sense; in spite of all those series of unfortunate event; we could all learn from this, poor little rich girl; (obviously; not her abuse of drugs) but rather, her act of defiance; of wearing whatever you want; where ever you want! For having the guts, to step out; in something others perceive; as really WRONG, but to you; it's SO RIGHT!
Whenever someone critisizes you for wearing some, loud, outstanding piece of clothing or accessory; Whenever someone, only has bad things to say about your style;
IGNORE THEM, LEAVE THEM AS THEY ARE;
Style is all about having the right to dress up; OR even the right to dress "down"; whenever you feel like it; Fashion is about having fun with yourself; Having fun with your clothes;
Who knows?! You could be the next Edie/Kate; sending the world into a frenzy; with whatever sartorial style; that YOU, have!
