    I'll Always Remember Andy's Superstar...

    Happened to catch Factory Girl on cable just now; And once again; I was captivated by the portrayal of Edie Sedgwick by the amazing, Sienna Miller. Of course; I couldn't discount Guy Pearce, and his wonderful take of the legendary Andy Warhol.




    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!





    LIVE ON! EDIE!

    I did see the movie and I thought it was pretty sad. I especially loved Hayden Christensen as a Bob-Dylan archetype. But honestly, in terms of people who stay true to themselves, I think there may be better role models than Edie Sedgwick. Love the idea behind this post though!

    I am just not a fan of Edie Sedgewick or Andy Warhol (although I like his art)...for "it" girls I prefer Clara Bow-the original It girl whom the term was coined for.

    Her life makes me so sad, but I always do admire someone who's willing to do something different with fashion.

    I've been meaning to watch this! I have it and I've not gotten around to seeing it, which is so silly because Guy Pearce is one of my fave actors!! :P

    Hm, I haven't seen Factory Girl whole, only parts of it on YouTube, but I must say I'm not a fan of neither Sienna Miller nor Edie Sedgwick. One thing I liked about Edie was her clothing style, but I don't think she was particularly talented, and inmy opinion, neither is Sienna Miller.
    I really liked the text you wrote though. You have a really great writing style!
    Oh, and about the languages.. Thankyou for the compliment! I actually speak three languages fluently, Czech because I come from the Czech Republic, German because I live in Germany and Enlgish just like that... I learn Spanish at school, but I can't really speak it. haha.

    Edie looked so gorgeous, and what an amazing style she had.. I love her pixie haircut, eye make-up and chandelier earrings.

    Ah, she was amazing!
    And I love Guy Pearce's Andy Warhol, he was fantastic in that movie

    I loved the movie. I thought both Sienna and Guy Pearce were great. Too bad about that Dylan character though. They should have just cut that out.
