Hillary Rodham soon-to-be Clinton - smart AND stylish even in high school. I bet she never had to sit alone at lunch.

And Jean Seberg and Jean-Paul Belmondo just looking cute, of course.

Who’s that girl? Oh, just a young Martha Stewart looking totally dope in a 1960s photo shoot and making American Apparel look like old news.
This is what my holiday party would look like if I had a giant loft space and a lot of art and a motorbike and it was 1965 and my name was Andy Warhol.
*Sigh* Guess I’ll just bake some cookies instead.

I really really hope they each have half-heart BFF necklaces hiding underneath those fashionable shirts.
Got some time to get sucked back into 1977? Good. NY 77: The Coolest Year in Hell is one of VH1’s “Rock Docs” and it’s definitely worth watching all seven parts that are uploaded on YouTube. Sure, it shows that not everything was awesome back then (urban decay, murder, drugs, etc.), but the late 70s saw an explosion of some great art and music and cultural movements. From IMDB’s summary:
Out of chaos came creation. From the South Bronx came hip hop. From the Lower East Side, the thrashing guitars of punk. And all over the city, a disco revolution was underway. Elaborate, finely crafted graffiti art decorated the subway cars and break-dancers shimmied in the streets. The sexual revolution was in full swing. In January 1977, most of this activity existed in its own underground bubble. Yet by the end of the year this artistic expression was on its way to mainstream America, and would be with us for generations to come.
So yeah: there was dirt, poverty, and crime BUT there was also hip hop, punk, and amazing outfits. I’d still drop by in my time machine.
Although most of Terry Richardson’s new photo book about his parents looks a little too sleazy/sad/exploitative to me, this one photo of them from back in the day caught my eye. Check out his mom’s rad boots and his dad’s Mick Jagger sneer! No wonder someone stuck little gold stars on there.
