Edie Sedgwick Vogue 1966
The Vogue crew stripped Edie of makeup and applied mascara, blush, and lip gloss. When the photographer, Gianni Penati, flirted with her, she loosened up and giggled, and the Vogue editor [Gloria Schiff] could suddenly imagine her possibilities.
— Steven Watson
You realized what wonderful things could happen to her as a model or a star… visualizing her dressed in different outfits or in other locations. There was a tremendous range in how she looked and the way she projected.
— Gloria Schiff
We’ve got a star!
— Diana Vreeland
She almost did become part of the family at Vogue. If that had happened, she would have had tremendous protection. Edie’s timing was just a fraction off.
