Inspirational Ladies of the Past

Peggy Guggenheim: Definitely had a thing for eccentric eyewear. She’s badass.

Penelope Tree: Might actually be the most attractive model of all time. Even more so than Kate Moss! Penelope’s face is so unique and lovely, not to mention she’s a wicked dresser. I love what she wore to Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball.




Grace Slick: I know nothing about Jefferson Airplane, but I heard ‘Somebody to Love’ on the radio the other day, and was completely arrested by her voice. Stopped dead in my tracks, I did a little research and discovered she was quite the stylish/beautiful femme as well!

Grace Slick is rather amazing.

I feel that retrospection makes things even more iconic than they are. Case in point - I love the style and life of Patti Smith (I just wrote a post about her), and I think it's because I'm removed from her. She's not entirely human to me. Great post!

Penelope Tree kind of reminds me of a Tim Burton character in the last photo, in a good way though! Her dark features and expressive eyes are beautiful.

You should check out Goldmine, I think you'd like it- Rhys Meyers' role is amazing you definately won't be disappointed.
Guggenheim was very cool. I never heard of Penelope Tree before but she seems interesting and looks great. I love Grace Slick, I actually usually hate hippie culture, but Slick and jeff airplane is my one and only exception.
