It was 1965 when Edie Sedgwick left Boston and arrived in Andy Warhol's Factory. Who knew that the pixie muse would make such a mark on the New York City art scene? Sedgwick's poise, charm, and composure were so alluring that actresses and models today still try to emulate her style. Although Warhol surrounded himself with many art stars, none were as famous or memorable as Edie Sedgwick. She quickly became the city's "It Girl."
Despite her reputation, Sedgwick's own work is often undersold. The first film Sedgwick shot with Warhol, Poor Little Rich Girl, for many summed up who she was. When comparisons between herself and Sedgwick were made, Chloë Sevigny said, "Edie was just a rich drug addict." Sedgwick died at the age of 28 from a drug overdose, but her status as an icon even today proves that she achieved a timelessness that celebrities today can only dream of.
