Vintage Babe: Julie Christie
Being that this blog is named after a certain vintage babe in her own right, I thought it only appropriate to start honoring the beautiful, inspirational people of past decades, not just the things. With that I bring you “Vintage Babes,” a soon-to-be regularly occurring Sally Lou post. First up: Julie Christie. The British actress is not only an Academy Award winner (for Darling) and beloved 1960s icon, but also the former partner of fellow vintage babe, Warren Beatty! Christie, probably best known for classics like Doctor Zhivago, Fahrenheit 451, Shampoo, and Heaven Can Wait, is still stunning audiences with her beauty even as she closes in on 70. Just check out how gorgeous she was in 2006’s Away from Her in this trailer. I’m planning to rent it asap!
Let’s all look back on this sexy blonde beauty whose mod style, doe eyes, and tousled hair (not to mention acting chops!) have put her solidly in the babe hall of fame. I know I’m inspired!
