She is Edie Sedgwick

When I was the girl of the year in New York,
I made a mask of myself

Toast to the 60’s!

Edie Sedgwick dazzled everyone with her beauty, style, glamour and wealth. She was a very bright and well spoken young lady, having a penchant for shopping. Edie purchased everything, from only the very best stores in New York, including glamourous clothes, as well as considerable quantities of make-up and earings. She managed to spend a large amount of her family inheritance.
Edie arrived at the factory – backed by such a large family history – and dazzled Warhol. Edie helped to transform the factory’s reputation as a place to be seen for all New York’s wealthy socialites and trend-setters. During the period from 1963 until 1965, Edie featured in leading magazines such as Time, Life and Vogue. Warhol and Edie became close friends, and received substantial media coverage due to the fact that Edie accompanied Warhol everywhere – to parties at the factory, in Manhattan, and to leading Gallery Exhibitions. Edie added a touch of style and glamour to many art openings, which arguably, resulted in Warhol receiving much more media coverage than would have normally been reserved for an up and coming artist at that time.
