We'll Take Manhattan


Hello! Hope you are all well and having good weekends. As we were stuck in with illness, we took the time to watch the rather fantastic 'We'll Take Manhattan'. This was the story of photographer David Bailey and his model girlfriend Jean Shrimpton's visit to New York for a Vogue fashion shoot. Rebelling against the upper-class traditional stylings of Vogue's Fashion Editor, Lady Clare Rendlesham, the pair broke all the rules of fashion photography. It was also the beginning of the revolution of youth culture in the 1960's. There were great performances from the three lead Actors, some fantastic sixties fashions and styling and oh, the cameras - gosh they were lovely. A really interesting drama all round. Catch up with it on the BBC Iplayer - here. There's only 3 days left to catch it!
