divine idylle # 2 : julie christiePosted: July 2, 2010
Julie Christie is a woman who conveyed a subtle vulnerability in spite of her powerful and ostensible beauty. Warren Beatty, who dated her on and off for nearly a decade summed up this interesting dichotomy perfectly, when he described her as “the most beautiful and at the same time the most nervous person I had ever known.”
Despite her obvious bankable status as far as making films was concerned, Julie often shunned leading roles in more commercially viable projects in favour of smaller, yet critically acclaimed films such as Nicholas Roeg’s ‘Don’t Look Now’, a particular favourite of mine. Her progressive and somewhat chameleon approach to fashion is illustrated clearly in these pictures, consistent with a woman who knew herself and what she wanted to project, in spite of an underlying fragility.
