American actress and fashion model Edie Sedgwick is best known for being one of Andy Warhol’s superstars. She became known as “The Girl of the Year” in 1965 after starring in several of Warhol’s short films in the 1960s.
While her association with Warhol would bring her lasting fame, Sedgwick’s life was not without its tragedies and torments. Her fame peaked during the tumultuous 1960s, a decade rife with creative opportunities as well as tragedy on an international level.
