Great style is timeless. The photo is from the 1930s, but this beach wear wouldn't look out of place in the present day. I particularly like the sunglasses.
It is presumably a staged photo, but conveys the feeling of a snapshot. Super!
BTW this is a *very* famous actress, from the golden age of Hollywood. Can you name her?
@fitheach Well yes. Obviously but there were traits there are were subsequently repeated later (for me)
Troubled childhood, misunderstood high profile genius, drug dependency, hangers-on coupled with a conspiracy theory.
Kurt Cobain, Ian Curtis et al.
'They were so vulnerable. Why didn't we do anything ? If only we could have helped her/him !'
It is the often discussed correlation between genius and an unstable personality. The creativity that comes from living on the edge, and often going beyond that point.
@fitheach ...but it was a truly iconic image. To me at least.
Please remember on the same wall, I had a 3 page interview with Mark. E Smith pinned up with Blu-Tac.
