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. 


Meanwhile, over at    WORN OUT    it is Flamingo Park time so please visit.
