Darling

Photobucket
I first watched the 1965 film Darling, featuring Julie Christie and Dirk Bogarde, accidentally as a teenager. Always obsessed from a young age with films from the 1950's and 1960's technicolor era, I was as equally enamoured with this wonderful black & white movie based around London in the Swinging Sixties. Although the leading lady's character was not particularly pleasant or endearing, what most drew me to her and the film itself was her amazing style. Julie Christie won a well-deserved Oscar for her role and I have enjoyed watching her in others ever since discovering her. I couldn't get enough of this film at the time, taking in all of the many iconic details. Now, I'm looking to her for hair inspiration as I begin the long journey into re-growing my hair. And having just ordered the dvd again to watch to my heart's content, I thought I would share some of the images that I could find. Have you seen this film before... What did you think of it?
