Vogue UK January 1964 cover shot by Duffy. We believe the model is Paulene Stone.
The caption from the magazine reads:
'The first of the 1964 great looks headlined by a helmet of shiny white leather, with a squared off-peak, two sharp points. What gives this look glow is a finish more matt than recently, a clear pink lipstick, accent on the cheeks, lightly penciled brows. Make-up by Revlon. Helmet, James Wedge, Liberty. Photograph by Duffy'
James Wedge began his creative career as a milliner and fashion designer. By 1970 he turned his focus to photography and painting and is highly regarded in both fields.
