She has such an unusual beauty, she really did look kind of "alienesque" like many of the top girls today (Gemma, Lily, Heather)... there's also something kind of sad and haunting about her, maybe the anorexia plays a part in that? Anyway, thanks for starting this topic, purple

It was my pleasure, I really also find her so fascinating; that she was very child-like, but also strange and disturbing in a way as well.

I was going to say the exact same thing as Clementine. She has a certain sadness over her, which is maybe what made her unique at that time.

Penelope Tree: Avedon's Fetiche Model
So, after all this booz of Sienna Millers, Vanessas Paradis and even Gwens Stefanis, why the hell don't we dedicate some threads to TRUE ICONS?
I mean, nothing compares to the original taste. We live in a world ruled by the media and the mass-capitalism, so fashion needs urgently to stick on its base of being Arts at first.

So let's get ready for a list of threads I will dedicate to my all-time-muses.


Penelope, such a mysterious grace, such a dark embodiment of style.
Such an oddisey to find pictures of her at google, so anyone in possesion of great scans... welcome

What I love of Penelope: the eyes, just take a look at the current Chanel Fall Winter 05-06 makeup.... The eyes are her first way of saying: no access...

We've already got a topic on her, in the supporting cast section, where it belongs. http://www.thefashionspot.com/forums...=penelope+tree
In the future, please do a search- and don't insult Vanessa Paradis. Thanks.

A critic is not an insult.

No one's insulted you, but I started the topic off.

Please, no rudeness, and try to avoid insulting the opinions of others.
I believe it's spelt "fetish," by the way...?

There was a Penelpe Tree look-a-like at IMG called Lindsay Hayes. She never caught on and I only saw her featured on hintmag.com and Nylon Magazine. But, since they don't have archives for their MODEL MANIA section anymore I can't find the pics of her.

Does anyone have current photos of Penelope Tree? I've been obsessed with finding photos of her being older because people have been telling me for years that I look exactly like her, so call it a weird "end of the book" type curiosity.

Other than that, I love all the photos posted; I hadn't seen all of those. Sixties clothing is my passion, and I always find the same shots from all the famous models. It's refreshing to see more "rare" shots.
