/youthquaker/all-around "it girl" of '65 from a mentally unstable paternal lineage, believed by pseudo-mod
teens and twenty-somethings to be something of a demigod, although she was a deplorable actor who could not memorize the most basic of scripts (in the few Warhol
films in which she actually had to act, that is), is believed to have been a pathological liar, and eventually wound up a strung-out moll of a biker gang before getting married for a very short time, subsequently dying of an "acute barbiturate overdose" in '71.
Her once again marketable face and name (thanks in part to the 2006 flick, "Factory Girl") is now slapped across Urban Outfitters, Hottopic, and 80s Purple shirts and totes as far as the eye can see.
Pseudo-mod teenie bopper: Edie Sedgwick is my idol! She was the most beautiful, talented woman to ever walk the face of the Earth!
