Fun Festive Hair and Lashes – 1966

Photo: Irving Penn

“How cool is cool?” was the headline in the June 1966 issue of Vogue Magazine about this Irving Penn “little crazy” rare beauty photo of Verushchka, Countess Vera von Lehndorff-Steinhort.  Lucite over the moon hair rings (from Paraphernalia) and  Dynel fake lashes “the size of eyeshades” were “wrought” by Giorgio di Sant’Angelo – then “a young Florentine artist now playing around with New York Fashion.” Vogue said the hair was actually all Veruschka’s own, without a single hairpiece.    There is no hairdresser credit, but it does look rather Ara Gallant. Or maybe Sant’Angelo did it!   (If anyone knows of another hairdresser, let us know.). Max Factor’s then new Frosterinos Pinkberry Meringue shades the lips.  (No credit for a makeup artist.) Knitted wool dress by Rudi Gernreich for Harmon Knitwear.  Those were the days.
