Edie Sedgwick

Edie Sedgwick

Today’s birthday girl is fashion icon Edie Sedgwick.

The fashion press has a horrible habit of choosing horrible role models for a new generation of magazine readers.  Take Edie Sedgwick, for example.  Not even making it into her thirties, the reckless actress, model and socialite lived fast and died young.

I can name a couple dozen Aries addicts off the top of my head.  Most of them have the chance to recover because they do grow up.  Sedgwick never had the chance to grow up.  I can understand why people appreciate Sedgwick’s sense of style after all these years, but looking back at her life through rose-colored glasses is a real mistake.  She was a mess, and hardly worthy of iconic status.
