Andy Warhol, New York’s most famous artist picked her up and made her into a dazzling superstar. She comes from money but ended up OD’ing on heroin. Intriguing and gorgeous girl with a fascination story. She inspired Andy Warhol and Bob Dylan and left behind a fashion legacy that still lives on today.\r\n\r\n”Edie danced to her own tune, and I imagine this is what inspired Warhol and Dylan as much as it did me,” said Galliano. “She created her own identity … She may only have had 15 minutes of fame, but her style and image influenced a whole generation.”(Dedicated one of Christian Dior’s catwalk shows to Edie’s look to the film Factory Girl.)\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nIt’s not that I’m rebelling. It’s that I’m just trying to find another way.\r\n\r\n-Edie Sedgwick\r\n\r\n“Factory girl”\r\n\r\n (2006) starring Sienna Miller, Guy Pearce and Hayden Christensen.\r\n\r\nA bioepic, telling the story of Edith “Edie” Sedgwick, a 60ies fashion icon and temporary muse of pop artist Andy Warhol.\r\n\r\nArriving into the chaos of mid-60s New York, Edie (Sienna Miller) is taken under the wing of the famously deadpan artist Andy Warhol (Guy Pearce) who sees in her untamed vulnerability the makings of an irresistible muse. Warhol invites Edie into the wild world of The Factory, a former downtown hat factory he has transformed into a bohemian paradise. Here, a rag-tag mix of musicians, poets, artists, actors and misfits gather to create avant-garde movies during the day and throw glam parties all night long. Edie quickly ascends to become the star of Warhol’s movies, an idol at The Factory and a media darling. She is on top of the world when she falls in love with a larger-than-life rock star (Hayden Christensen), the man known as “the voice of a generation.” But when Edie becomes caught between Warhol’s world of sexy surfaces and her new love, she winds up rejected by both – and once again, set adrift in the modern world.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSienna Miller as Edie Sedgwick with Hayden Christensen as Bob Dylan.
