I absolutley love Edie Sedgwick. For those who dont know her, she was the artist, Andy Warhols muse. She is the girl who inspired 60's fashion with her long chandellier earrings, fake eyelashes and short dresses. Sienna Miller recently played her in the hit film, 'Factory Girl' which is now one of my favourite films ever. Edies story is one of tragedy however when she falls into the drug scene and so many years later, takes an overdose. I recently brought a book on her, 'Edie: Girl on Fire', which features amazing photographs and quotes from Edie herself and the people who knew her.
I was flicking through a magazine when I saw the headline, 'Amy Winehouse- without the tattoos'. Being a fan of Amy I took notice and read on. A new Australian singer, Gabriella Cilmi (pronounced chill-me) has released a catchy single, 'Sweet about me'. Although it doesnt particularly sound like Amy Winehouse, it's still a good tune and worth a download.
