New Year's Eve may very well be your best excuse to get all dressed up, try something totally new, and make a major style statement — we consider it our duty to help you ring in the new year looking your most fabulous. To kick off our Countdown to NYE series, we're re-creating an outfit inspired by one of the ultimate '60s-era style icons, Edie Sedgwick. Edie had a ground-breaking aesthetic — short hair, dramatic eye makeup (it was said that she often wore multiple strips of false lashes), and thigh-baring hemlines. Her look is incredibly easy to channel and mostly defined by fitted silhouettes and a graphic black and white color palette. Once you've got your basics, just add a few key Edie-centric pieces: black tights, kitten heels, a faux-fur coat, and her signature oversize, shoulder-dusting earrings. Ready to rock it like Edie?

Speaking of being so head over heels in love with someone you want to marry them as quickly as possible and you would do anything, anything, anything for them . . . here's a little something you may not be familiar with, but should be. The Dramarama video isn't anything special, except there is sporadic footage of Edie Sedgwick throughout, but the song is fueled by the love-induced passion people long to feel. So press play, stand up and dance like you're in love for the first time. Let those positive (or negative) emotions run free and revel in them. Now this is the type of song I would want someone to dedicate to me. Anything, anything, anything . . .

All of the new DVD releases hit stores (and Netflix) on Tuesdays. So each week in What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday, I sort through the best of the batch and tell you what to add to your queue. This week I can also tell you what not to rent: Premonition starring Sandra Bullock. You will most likely regret it.
Despite the controversy this movie stirred up during production, the film didn't do well at the box office, nor did it wow the critics. Still, it's an interesting movie to see because of the time period it deals with and the subject matter: Edie Sedgwick. Sienna Miller channels Sedgwick, the glamorous starlet of the 1960s who became pop artist Andy Warhol's (played by Guy Pearce) muse. In the movie Sedgwick also flirts with a musician character (played by Hayden Christiansen) who is clearly based on Bob Dylan. The movie chronicles Sedgwick's rise to fame and subsequent fall into obscurity. The costumes in this film are fantastic, as is Miller's makeup, both of which you can get for yourself, thanks to my friend Fab!
Today's 'It' girl Sienna Miller plays the original 'It' girl Edie Sedgwick in the movie Factory Girl hitting theaters today. After getting the inside scoop from the film's costume designer John Dunn, I learned that Sienna's wardrobe was, not surprisingly, mostly vintage - except a pair of killer Jimmy Choo boots. As you can see, all these wardrobe pieces are still stylish as ever. As much as I would love to go back in time to snag some of these Fab pieces for myself, check out what I did find, ready and available to all of us. Oh and here's a tip: don't forget to wear a pair of sturdy black American Apparel jersey hot shorts, $12, if you dare wear Edie's signature black tights look. Stay tuned for a how-to on getting Edie/Sienna's beauty look from this movie!

After weeks upon weeks of speculation and controversy — concerning both Bob Dylan's outrage over the film and Sienna Miller behaving like a child in general — Factory Girl is finally set to open nationwide this Friday, February 9. Sienna Miller plays Edie Sedgwick, muse to artist Andy Warhol (played by Guy Pearce) during the Factory's heyday in the 1960s.
I'm a little torn on this one; the costumes, the freewheeling '60s vibe, and Pearce's performance look really spot-on. But Miller rubs me the wrong way, and I'm uneasy about the inclusion of this "Bob Dylan-esque" character. Check out the trailer and tell me: Do you have any interest in Factory Girl?
In honor of the much-anticipated release of Factory Girl, with Sienna Miller, if not solely for its movie wardrobe, here is a happening handbag named after the film's heroine. The movie is based on the life of Andy Warhol muse and original 'It' girl Edie Sedgwick - the blazing superstar who came to define both the glamour and the tragedy of our celebrity-obsessed culture. The Edie Large Tote is $675, the medium tote is $575, and it comes in more colors.
A 1965 fashion spread in Life magazine dubbed her "the girl with the black tights," and Edie Sedgwick wore them with everything, from dressy shift dresses to long t-shirts. So with mod styles and black tights so ubiquitous this fall—not to mention an upcoming biopic called "Factory Girl" starring Sienna Miller as Edie—it seems fitting that the socialite/actress/Factory regular should kick off Fabsugar's new Style Icons feature, where we'll spotlight past and present fashion plates and tell you how to get each one's signature look.
With her cropped platinum hair and dark-lined eyes, Edie Sedgwick defined effortless but edgy mod glamour. The key is pairing simple sheath dresses with bold jewelry, solid-color tights, and basic pumps or flats. Here are the five essential elements you need to get the look.
