^ David Profumo (2006) Bringing the House Down. In contrast to Vadim, who had not turned twenty, Allégret (1900–73) was in middle age when he directed Hobson. He had been married to the daughter of the editor of French Vogue, who left him after the war for a theatrical agent, André Bernham, taking their daughter with her (ibid). Jeanmaire is probably best remembered through the second line – "And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire" – of Peter Sarstedt's song "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?" (1969) which captured the spirit of Parisian high life in the late 1960s.

Effie Gray, whose marriage to John Ruskin was annulled in 1854 prior to her marrying the pre-Raphaelite painter John Millais, is known to have used flowers as an adornment and probably also as an assertive "statement". While in Scotland with Ruskin (still her husband) and Millais, she gathered foxgloves to place in her hair. She wore them at breakfast despite being asked by her husband not to do so, a gesture of defiance, at a time of growing crisis in their relationship, that came to the critical notice of Florence Nightingale[15] (who tended to regard others of her sex with "scarcely concealed scorn" and was generally unsympathetic to "women's rights"[16]). A few weeks earlier, on Midsummer Day, Effie (possibly inspired by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream) was said by her hostess, Pauline Trevelyan, to have "looked lovely" with stephanotis in her hair at an evening party in Northumberland,[17] while, the previous year, a male friend had brought glass flowers for her hair from Venice.[18] Ruskin's father was evidently shocked to learn that, when Effie herself was in Venice, she had removed her bonnet in public, ostensibly because of the heat.[18]

Jane Morris, who was to become Rossetti's muse, epitomised, probably more than any of the women associated with the pre-Raphaelites, an unrestricted, flowing style of dress that, while unconventional at the time, would be highly influential at certain periods during the 20th century.[7] She and others, including the much less outlandish Georgiana Burne-Jones (wife of Edward Burne-Jones,[8] one of the later pre-Raphaelites), eschewed the corsets and crinolines of the mid-to-late Victorian era,[9] a feature that impressed the American writer Henry James when he wrote to his sister in 1869 of the bohemian atmosphere of the Morrises’ house in the Bloomsbury district of London and, in particular, the "dark silent medieval" presence of its chateleine:

In 1853 Millais painted Effie with Foxgloves in her Hair which depicts her wearing the flowers while doing needlework. Other paintings of the mid-to-late 19th century, such as Frederick Sandys' Love's Shadow (1867) of a girl with a rose in her hair, sucking a sprig of blossom, which was described in 1970 as "a first rate PR job for the Flower People",[19] and Burne-Jones' The Heart of the Rose (1889),[20] have been cited as foreshadowing the "flower power" of the mid-to-late 1960s.
Bohemian style carries a theme of unstructured silhouettes and rough-around-the-edges detail. Therefore, it would hardly look appropriate to throw a tailored blazer on over the top of your paisley shirt and distressed denim. Instead, your look calls for something a little more relaxed, such as a cardigan. The style is perfect for the comfortable and vintage nature of bohemian dressing. Keep the look from becoming prepping by choosing loose shapes and leaving buttons undone. If you can find one that looks a little worn out or features pulls or holes, that’s even better. Also, remember that a knitted or crocheted vest makes a good warm-weather option. Alternatively, anything lightweight, oversized and patterned tends to make a great backup choice.

Others favoured the lower-cut, tighter styles of continental stars such as Bardot or Gina Lollobrigida. Valerie Hobson was among those whose wardrobe drew on Italian couture; in addition to a large collection of stiletto heeled shoes, she possessed a skirt made from python skin.[101] More generally, European tastes – including the Lambretta motor scooter and Italian and French cuisine, which the widely travelled cookery writer Elizabeth David, herself a bit of a Bohemian, did much to promote[102] – not only began to pervade Bohemian circles, but offered a contrast, from 1955 onwards, with the brasher Americanism of rock 'n' roll, with its predominantly teenage associations.

I purchase. LOT of tops. Bc,u can mix w anything.. slacks, shorts, skirts - short, midi long etc to create a totally different look. Have paid LOTS for crummy & little for great.

It’s hard to say whether she’s a grand synthesis of all the pre-Raphaelite pictures ever made … whether she’s an original or a copy. In either case she’s a wonder. Imagine a tall lean woman in a long dress of some dead purple stuff, guiltless of hoops (or of anything else I should say) with a mass of crisp black hair heaped into great wavy projections on each of her temples … a long neck, without any collar, and in lieu thereof some dozen strings of outlandish beads.[10]
