Get The Look: 60’s It-Girl And Warhol Superstar, Baby Jane!
As everyone heads home from Art Basel exhausted and inspired I am looking to one of my favorite Florida born beauties and muses for today’s makeup inspiration. Art Collector, Actress, Film Producer, Model, Real Estate Magnet and Warhol Superstar, Baby Jane Holzer came to New York in 1963 and like so many gorgeous girls before and since, made a big splash on the art and social scene. As part of the long tradition of uptown society girls giving downtown artists inspiration, Baby Jane joined the chosen few and gained Warhol Superstar status, securing a place among the cool kids of the day including Janis Joplin, Mick Jagger and Sharon Tate and appearing in Warhol films alongside luminaries like Edie Sedgewick. Take a look at her exaggerated cat eye and gorgeous blonde hair and you will see why she mde such a mark. Let Baby Jane inspire you to channel your own inner it girl.
