We’re With the Band – Groupie Style

af10 af8 af9 af7 af6 af5 af4 af3 af2 af1 af12 af13

Groupies burst onto the scene alongside the rise of female and sexual liberation of the sixties and seventies. Fuelled by passion, they chased after a life less-ordinary, a life full of fun, excitement and wonder.

This movement inspired one of my fave films, Almost Famous, which captures the essence of what it was to be a groupie at the time. I love the style, LA in the late sixties, the sheer passion of these brazen, bohemian women who lived on the fringe in their quest to get closer to the men they adored and the movement they worshipped.

muse – miranda kerr

Her fairy-tale story is the stuff teenage girls around the world dream of. The young country girl propelled to modelling super-stardom and far-flung places, her face gracing billboards and magazines the world over, a string of famous suitors, a beautiful baby boy, and a successful skin care business too.

I really love the way Miranda has this sweetness about her, which shines through even when she’s shooting racy Victoria’s Secret campaigns. She’s a head-turning multi-millionaire with the world at her feet, but you can still sense that country-Australian go-getting tomboy who dared to chase her dreams.

woodstock 1969

Woodstock-kids woodstock-20after-20party_01 woodstock7 woodstock4 woodstock3 woodstock2 woodstock1 resized-woodstock-festival-girl-and-guy woodstock mag-1119 woodstockas Woodstock_01_1000

The Woodstock Festival of 1969 was a game-changer. Etched in history as the hippy event of the era, Woodstock was a ceremonial end to the swinging ’60′s, a pivotal moment in music history, and a profound union of the counterculture generation. I’ve always been drawn to the bohemian style of the sixties and seventies, and the Woodstock festival was the defining celebration of this style and spirit. Billed as “An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music”, the festival took place in New York state, with around half a million people in attendance – the essence of a generation all captured on film in the 1970 documentary ‘Woodstock’. That hippy spirit is still flourishing almost 50 years on and so is much of the fashion……!

Not one for the faint hearted, but one for the intrigued mind.

Forever Muse – Kate Moss

(C) Corrine Day, Kate, 1990 katemoss19 katemoss16 katemoss15 katemoss13 katemoss11 Editorial entitled The Rose Bowl, Vogue US 1995 April. katemoss9 katemoss8 katemoss7 katemoss6 katemoss5 katemoss4 katemoss3 katemoss2 katemoss1 katemoss12 katemoss21

 

She’s done so much for the fashion world, her name is synonymous with all things cool, and her face is legendary. Trailblazer Kate, the wafer-thin 5ft 7″ schoolgirl from Croydon, was plucked from obscurity at the young age of 14, challenging the status-quo of modelling of the eighties by leading the charge of the heroin-chic look of the grungy nineties. Throughout her career she has raised eyebrows with her controversial private life, party-lifestyle, and high profile relationships, but despite her mischievous ways, she has always held it together enough to have been the evolving face of fashion over two decades, an international fashion icon, and a successful businesswoman in her own right. Maybe that’s why we’re so smitten….

Life in the Tropics

tropics17 tropics15 tropics14 tropics13 tropics12 tropics11 tropics10 tropics8 tropics7 tropics6 tropics5 tropics4 tropics2 tropics3 tropics tropics9

 

Our sub-tropical home of Byron Bay is a constant source of inspiration. Sun-dappled tanned skin, salty hair bundled in top knots, confidently bared long limbs, short frayed shorts and swimwear feature in our daily lives, trends honed from necessity to cool down in the extreme heat and humidity. So we embrace the balmy ocean breezes, the swaying palm trees, the smell of the bright colourful flowers, and the tastes of the tropical fruits that grow on trees around us, we frolic in the surf, and soak up the suns ray on the golden sandy beaches. This is life in the tropics.

Muse – Georgia May Jagger

gm gm gm2 45f83ce7b11609d0b410cdc22ea9e5be 1b29b0aa31e903039cd04a1c222ee4b1 gm3 415adb66ba03e7218c7bf71e3ed2eb6b gm4 847123c171f11c331cd449f430e91f07 0849f537e8a41ff650c37b4c1dd50815 gm5 d6b50f5f7a175fb868c2afa3b9baa95e ce8758e09cd58fe06b3e546501d5b935 dbf06b5b374953221e0b95fd11d2c7fb d80b8e6b8cdb3463165a45bcf71425a8

 

The lucky blend of rock star and model genes makes for ultra-cool and beautiful offspring. So it is not at all surprising that Georgia May Jagger fell effortlessly into modelling, with her highly-revered heritage. What is more surprising is that the daughter of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall is renowned for being incredibly hard-working and down-to-earth, and has carved a name for herself as one of fashions most recognisable faces. Every bit the London scene socialite, Georgia is often seen cavorting with Cara Delevingne, setting the fashion world on fire with her progressive, interpretive style.
