UNIFORM | Tuesday Weld


Photo of Tuesday Weld via Classic Film Scans (thanks again, Julia who posted this indescribably beautiful Roddy McDowall home video of Tuesday in 1965).

"Hollywood was scandalized when [Tuesday Weld] turned up for a TV interview with bare feet and a dress which Louella Parsons described as a 'burlap nightgown'." —LIFE July 26, 1963.

Biltmore Panama Hat ($58); Rib Cardigan by Le Mont St Michel ($295).

Love the colour of the cardigan!
She has such distinctive features and yet is soft at the same time.

That's Fabian with her...he was a bit of a teen idol in my day...had a hit record, though his voice was basically BAD. Tuesday, on the other hand...beautiful...

That video makes me want to weep for coastline afternoons past, and to come. I love how childlike (cliche I know) Weld's wonder is while playing with the dragonfly.
