Before They Were Famous Dress
Before They Were Famous.
Before they became gods or goddesses they were just like you and me.
But even then, before the iconic status, you could see it. The way they wore a certain dress. The way they held a cigarette or lounged on a chaise reading The Sunday Times.No one was watching, but it was still mesmerizing.
London in the 60s had many of them. All coming up together, before the rest of their lives, before the triumphs and tragedies. But it’s that innocent (in some respects) time that strikes me the most. Before the self-awareness. Before the world sank its teeth in.
Now all we’re left with is that feeling of nostalgia that levels you in the pit of your stomach when you see an old black and white photograph. It’s a lightning bolt straight into your soul, taking you back to before…
