Beauty and Style Icons – Julie Christie

I draw inspiration from many remarkable ladies, so I thought I’d start a little mini-series of Beauty & Style Icon posts by celebrating the wonderful Julie Christie.

Julie has always been a free spirit and I truly admire her acting skills, impeccable style and her great integrity (she is a strong supporter of animal rights and environmental conservation). She might be best known for playing Lara in ‘Doctor Zhivago’ but my favourite role of hers by far is Diana Scott in ‘Darling’. I’d also recommend ‘Billy Liar’, ‘Fahrenheit 451’ and ‘Don’t Look Now’.
