Edie Sedgwick

Watched Factory Girl for the first time last night. Quite intriguing and depressing. I am fascinated by Edie Sedgwick now, and her tragic, and insanely intense life and death. Sienna Miller did an amazing job of playing Edie in this film.

For those who don't know, Edie was the long-time muse of Andy Warhol. She was beautiful, always had a cigarette in her hand, and had a unique and confounding confidence as well as fragility all at the same time. She died in 1971 of a drug overdose, at the age of 28.

Below are some gorgeous photogs of Edie:
