Sefjan Stevens - Chicago

Pop Art Fantasy
Roy Lichtenstein

WHEN SHE entered young professor Lovelock's life, everything changed for him. "I want to kiss you!" the love-sick scientist kept thinking all day log, letting his kenetic-molecular hypothesis go hang. No Wonder! She contoured her mouth - alluringly, lusciously - with one of the new wild colors: Mauve, Red, Orange or Cocoa, applying a coat of clear yellow or white opal for highlight only to the lower lip! Naturally, the doomed young scientist gave up his search for the ultimate particle and became the slave forever of wild, wild, Dorothy Gray!! 

The New Botticelli Girl
Bibi Winkelhorn

Rhodora! if the sages ask thee why
This charm is wasted on the earth and
Tell them, dear, that if eyes were 
                      made for seeing.
Then Beauty is its own excuse for
- Emerson

What's Coming
Lew Alcindor

A young giant of a boy, Lew Alcindor, called by his equally young fans, who patiently follow him everywhere, "El Cid" is what's about to happen in basketball.

Hi-Fi Femininity
Sara Lownds

Once more the frankly feminine returns to fashion. Lovely, luscious Sarah Lownds wears low-cut, deeply V'ed, black and white checks - the skirt, a panorama of pleats. The flirty knickers, kissed at the knee with a white camelia. Dress by Teal Traina.

"Dick's portraits of impossibly thin kids like Bob Dylan and the six-foot-seven basketball sensation Lew Alcindor were separated from the ravishingly plump Bibi Winkelhorn and Bob Dylan's wife Sara with a story by Tom Wolfe."

Jean Shrimpton

"To photograph "the Earth Girl" reclining on a conquered moon, on January 11, Avedon needed a location that would look like the lunar seas, and he found it at the DIMAR Construction Company's quarries, a vast site piled with mountains of white gravel on Route 84 in Fort Lauderdale."
