Why we love the elfin faced rebellious rich girl turned David Bailey muse.

Another one of our ultimate 60s muses and major style inspirations of now is Penelope Tree, the elfin faced rebellious rich girl turned David Bailey muse. Tree, who was photographed by Diane Arbus at the tender age of 13, got her breakthrough after making a name for herself at Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball in 1966, resulting in various work for Cecil Beaton, Richard Avedon and David Bailey, the latter with whom she spent a couple of years in London whilst establishing herself in the Swinging Sixties scene. John Lennon described her in three words as ”hot, hot, hot” and we can sure see why. /Ada Källgren
