Glamour with a capital G
I posted some pictures a while back (Showpeople label) showing Julie Christie, Catherine Deneuve and Ursula Andress at some mid 60s movie premiere all looking terribly glamorous as they compared notes on their outfits and long white gloves (right) ..... it turned out to be the Royal Command Film Performance in 1966, when they were presented to The Queen. (How did they get into and out of those gloves...?)
Here is another interesting shot from that evening's lineup: Leslie Caron and Warren Beatty were there as well - Julie is next to Leslie who is with her beau Warren, with Deneuve next to him, and then Christopher Lee and Ursula .... of course by 1970 it was Warren and Julie who were THE glam couple with McCABE & MRS MILLER .... (by 1966 here DARLING, DR ZHIVAGO and REPULSION had been released, Beatty must have been in seventh heaven with all these dishy dames/groovy birds around ....)
