In the past couple of months my follower count has grown immensely and I just want to say thank you to you all. :) A fair warning for those of you have followed Faithfull Forever without really looking at the blog: I post photos (and other stuff) from every decade of Marianne's remarkable career and life, not just the 1960s.
Luckily I think a lot of you are here because of that and it makes me very happy. If you ever have any questions or comments please drop me a line in the ask box. xx Maggie

"This season, a preshow rumor had the designer enlisting Marianne Faithfull for his ad campaign. If true, it makes sense, as Slimane’s collection had its roots planted firmly on Carnaby Street, his Saint Laurent girl du jour a latter-day kindred spirit of Marianne, Jane Birkin and Edie Sedgwick."

Meanwhile, Marianne Faithfull — who was spotted puffing on an e-cigarette — is preparing for a banner year. “
As Tears Go By
came out 50 years ago this year. I’m going on a world tour with a new record, I have a book coming out — a big picture book with Rizzoli — and tons of things happening.” said the singer, adding that a documentary was also in the works.

Not Anita Pallenberg (or Marianne Faithfull): The Sienna Miller Edition
I haven't done one of these in a while and today's mistaken identity might surprise you. The above photo is more often than not attributed to being Anita Pallenberg (and sometimes Marianne, which is why I'm posting about it). Even Google Images seems to think so, but you can't always trust all-knowing search engines.
Seeing this photo for the first time a couple of years ago I just somehow knew it couldn't be because it looked nothing like either of them. I did a bit of research and found out that the lady above is actually Sienna Miller. The photo was taken by Bruce Weber for Pirelli Calendar 2003.
