Shrimp is no Barbie
These are my VOGUE stacks, going back to 1969 and the issues from 1970 to 1973 are in handsome navy red and gold stamped VOGUE binders.
Jean Shrimpton is on many of the covers, and while the girly 1960's are typified by MOD culture evolving, the concurrent prevailing 'look' was known as 'DollyBird' and she was their goddess. A film has been made based on the early part of her career when she went to New York City for a VOGUE shoot with David Bailey. I won't be seeing it, and the publicity will irritate me, but I have all these for my Shrimp fix instead. She is a recluse now and I don't blame her one bit.
Update: since then I saw part of the Bailey/Shrimpton fiction on FreeToAir TV and it wasn't too awful, but I just could not stick at it because of inaccuracies.
