This blog is dedicated to Stones goddesses Marianne Faithfull and Anita Pallenberg, whose beauty and strength I find limitlessly inspiring (and whose photos I've spent thousands of dollars collecting and hundreds of hours scanning, so please, read the disclaimer at the bottom of the page, and don't re-post them without credit). This means you, Pinterest, Tumblr, etc., people.

Marianne - the Rock n' Roll Circus
Julian Lennon and Marianne:
So, I finally got around to doing the Marianne screen caps from The Rolling Stones' Rock N' Roll Circus (Dec 11, 1968). She was SO gorgeous, even with that short haircut. Marianne was stoned and nervous, miming the words to "Something Better" in her long, wine-colored gown. I love during the end (when the Stones are singing "Salt Of The Earth") and Marianne is sitting in front of Mick - she keeps trying to hide from the camera and pull her floppy hat down to cover her face, but Mick won't have it. He teasingly pulls off her hat. It's a sweet moment. The Rock N' Roll Circus happened right after Marianne miscarried her and Mick's child, so she was very fragile, and God only knows how upset she must have been. I think she genuinely was trying to be out of sight. Too bad Anita didn't star in the show, huh?!
