  1. Seagrass matting is SO Seventies and that whole shoot in her own cottage is just divine. ‘The milkmaid look’ era when even Kaiser Karl at Chloe was sending out lacy pantaloons under skirts.
    I would bet the ranch that JS did her own hair and make-up and there were no teams fussing to achieve her wonderfulness. Modern ‘models’ would be lost on their own.
    Young fashionistas could not possibly understand how refreshing the loose hair and soft make-up was to those of us who previously had only the Dovima look to emulate. On a teen it was not going to work. Prior to 1964 we had HRH Bardot and Juliette Greco to style ourselves after.
    I can still hear the echo of my humourless mother sniping “you are NOT going out in those black stockings” (which I had to source from a place that supplied Nuns).
    That issue of VOGUE is on eebay for pounds and pounds in case you don’t know.
    Keep ’em coming.
