They’re Gonna Put Me in the Movies

We can never see enough Hollywood and rock photography, especially when it comes from the sweet spot between the mid 60s and the mid 70s, when just about everyone was young, attractive, and wearing corduroy.

So we were glad to run across Terry O’Neill’s latest exhibition, double-posted at GQ UK and CNN. Our favorite shot is this windy snap of Brigitte Bardot, but there are plenty more of Brian Jones, an aquatic Raquel Welch, and the underrated style icon David Hemmings. Consider it your morning inspiration.

Style Explosion

Two things they don't make like they used to—movie posters and movies. Case in point: Michelangelo Antonioni's brilliant 1966 flick *Blow-Up*.

David Hemmings plays Thomas, a debauched fashion photographer based on David Bailey who thinks he may have witnessed a murder. But the plot takes a back seat to the movie's incredibly stylish *mise-en-scène*, not to mention Thomas' navy blue Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud convertible, slant-pocketed velvet hacking jacket and endless stream of beautiful bedmates.

At Bonhams Entertainment Sale in London on June 18, you can snag a piece of the magic in the form of this original poster from the film, estimated at £300 - £500. If you think you can outbid us, that is.
