When Edie Sedgwick arrived in New York in 1964, she was just a rich California girl wasting her trust fund in the big city. But not for long. After Andy Warhol crowned her the Pop Art princess of his notorious lair, The Factory, photographers couldn’t get enough of the effervescent oddball, clad in waist-grazing tank tops, horizontal stripes and immense chandelier earrings. That singular style, along with her affinity for life in the fast lane, made Edie a fashion icon. Now, there are enough microminis, leggings and ballet flats out there for modern girls inspired by her look. Chief among them is Sienna Miller, who’s got an Edie issue of her own: Rumor has it that her “Factory Girl,” with no impending release, is something of a mess. Nevertheless, Miller looks sensational as the wayward icon. “I can’t let go of the Edie thing,” she said recently. “I just felt so comfortable in those clothes.” — JESSICA IREDALE
