Britt-ish Fashion

Dress by Miss Polly

I’m not a particular fan of Britt Ekland for the most part, but I am rather fond of this autumnal shoot she did for Vogue (by Patrick ‘Yeah Baby’ Lichfield). It’s so rare to have such a lovely feeling of space in fashion photos. You’re looking at the frocks, no doubt about it, but you’re also taking in the atmosphere of the location. The clothes are perfectly dreamy and her hair is completely and utterly covetable, in each and every shot. I worship this crimping.

And why do I not own this John Bates for Jean Varon dress? How has this happened? Something is clearly very wrong with the world...

  1. Stunning photography and hair! Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful images. This shows perfectly why Lord Lichfield was top of his game. Fabulous, and so evocative of the era. 🙂

    Beautifully British! Nothing beats good old country style mixed with curiously creative design – and superb photography.

    I really adore these photos. That dress with insanely long collar- must get it! Who is it by?I think I also need her hairstylist, while I'm at it.

    Which issue of Vogue is this – I know it's 1970? Gotta know for record purposes…! Daniel

  8. Daniel, it's the one with Charlotte Rampling on the front – September 1970

  9. […] I appear to have Ekland hair-envy again. Only this time, it’s coupled with Ekland interior decor-envy as well. Damn her. Share […]
