Edie Sedgwick, pure inspiration
Haytor‘s masculine inspiration and striking features remind us of Edie Sedgwick, muse of two great male artists, Andy Warhol and Bob Dylan who, by the way, happened to be a true lover of striped shirts.
Eddie was born into a well-to-do family in 1943 in Santa Barbara, California. It was the seventh of eight brothers. She had a very complicated childhood and adolescence, due in part to the difficulties he had to face as the result of a broken family.
With only 21 years old she moved to New York. At first she spent most of his time going to wild parties, although his real dream was to act, dance and work as a model. It was at a party for Tennessee Williams in 1965 when he met the man who would soon launch his career: Andy Warhol.
When Sedgwick arrived at the famous Factory, Warhol was filming Vinyl, a movie for men. At the last moment the artist decided to give Sedgwick a small five-minute role in which he did not stop smoking and dancing a little. That day the Warhol-Sedgwick duo was born.
Warhol put her as the protagonist of at least 10 of his films. Everyone in the pop art subculture scene knew the name of Edie Sedgwick and was labeled the Vanity Fair Girl of the Year in 1965.
Although Warhol and his muse were inseparable for a time, it did not last long. In the summer of 1965, Sedgwick began to lose faith in Warhol, believing more and more that his films made him look foolish. In addition, she began to gain interest in another person… Bob Dylan. Edie met Bob at The Factory. Never was confirmed any official romance between the two, but their flirting did not go unnoticed. Many have speculated that Dylan’s hits “Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat”, “Just Like a Woman” and “Like a Rolling Stone” were all about Sedgwick. A passionate woman with great dreams that inspired the most recognized artists of the time. Unfortunately, Edie died at age 28 from an overdose of barbiturates.
