Edie Sedgwick "I went to a party once, and there was a palm reader there and when she looked at my hand, she just froze. And I said to her "I know. My lifeline is broken. I know I won't live past thirty." --Factory Girl
Remember that scene in Mad Men when Megan Draper does that sexy little strip tease dance at Don's birthday to "Zou Bisou Bisou"? That's basically the early '60s in a nutshell. Starts out with Edie Sedgewick in gogo boots and a little mod minidress-- ends positively space-age psychedelic. By the time it's 1969 Janis Joplin is belting out "Me & Bobby McGee" in denim bell bottoms, tons of beads, and a big fringed vest.
After starring in a number of Warhol movies at The Factory , Edie Sedgwick began living at the Chelsea Hotel, where she became close to Bob Dylan. Dylan's manager Paul Morrissey explained that Sedgwick had developed a crush on Dylan and that she thought he reciprocated and were beginning a romantic relationship. Unbeknownst to Sedgwick, Dylan had secretly married his girlfriend Sara Lownds in November 1965.
