I know I posted many of these photos in a post last year, but they were crappy scans from my then-crappy scanner (this one is better, but I still need to invest in something really fantastic at some point). All photos were taken by Michael Cooper in the Joshua Tree desert. This is one of my all-time favorite Stones/Marianne/Anita photo sessions (not that they were posed, but you know what I'm saying). They're just gorgeous. I especially love the last one, of Gram dancing (it's no secret that Gram Parsons is one of my favorite men that's ever lived). Doing drugs, playing music, and gazing off into the sunrise. Love it.

All these pictures are, I believe, taken from The Girl On A Motorcycle set. Mick is wearing that beautiful painted jacket, the same one he wore when they were filming the video for "We Love You" a year earlier. I just adore how in love and gorgeous they both look. Marianne wore this outfit - the dark tights, black skirt, white sweater, and hair tied half back - in the movie (see pic below and the one above sitting around the table). Anyway, I know there are more of these out there, but here's all the ones I have and have scanned!
I know I haven't posted in a while... I have been feeling a bit blue (well, more like paralyzingly depressed but why argue semantics?), but will most on a more regular basis soon! Hope you all have been doing wonderfully.

I haven't made a post in a while, so I thought I would go through old magazines and what not for some photos of a young Marianne Faithfull. It's interesting to see how much her look evolved (and how sexualized she became) as she got into her twenties. Most of these shots are from mags or newspaper articles published in 1965, when Marianne was 18 years old and looked positively virginal. No wonder Andrew knew instantaneously that he could sell that image to the masses! Personally, I prefer pics of Marianne from around mid-1966 to 1968, post-pop singer and pre-drug addiction. She was at her most beautiful then. She let her hair grow long and seemed to have more personal style once she gave up singing and spent time filming movies like The Girl On A Motorcycle and being Mick Jagger's S.O. Of course, shopping on King's Road must have helped. Enjoy!
