women in 1960's

On March 22, 1967, a party to celebrate Twiggy’s first trip to the US was held at Bert Stern’s photography studio. Edie was in attendance. She wore a black mini-dress with feather trim, along with a wig underneath a black pill-box hat - A few days later, on March 26th, 1967, Edie wears the same wig and hat during the Central Park Be-In scene in ‘Ciao! Manhattan’. James W. Brady, of Women’s Wear Daily, dubbed the young Twiggy as a 'Paper Girl’ in his report on the party. “'Twiggy copied me two years ago,’ lamented Edie Sedgwick, America’s original Paper Girl.” Women’s Wear Daily, March 23, 1967

“[S]o it was that George Harrison, along with brother Peter, stepped off a plane at Lambert Field in St. Louis and became the first Beatle to set foot on American soil.
And no one cared.
There were no throngs of screaming, frenzied young girls, no gang of reporters, no legions of police, no limo. Instead, there was a twenty-year-old British traveler with a strange haircut holding his bags, standing at his designated meeting spot beneath a replica of Lindbergh’s Spirit of St. Louis, waiting for his ride.
Five short months later he would step off of another airplane at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and enter the national zeitgeist, where he has remained.
Louise, then-husband Gordon and their son and daughter brought their foreign uncles back to the house in Benton where ‘our German shepherd Sheba greeted him,’ which George loved, says Harrison. ‘We could never afford a pet when we were growing up. In Benton we had a five-bedroom house, and one bedroom was made into a playroom and they had train sets. When George grew up we never had any toys like that, so he and Pete spent hours playing with the kids.’

“George gave a pleasant surprise to a telephone caller to a room in The Beatles’ hotel. The room was ‘borrowed’ for a Press conference and George was closest to the telephone.” - The Australian Women’s Weekly, 1 July 1964

“‘Will Mr Harrison take a personal call from Mr Johnson of Washington?’ George put his hand over the mouthpiece and says, ‘Eh, it’s a call from a Mr Johnson of Washington.’ 'Must be President Johnson,’ John grins. George nods. 'Yeah, put him on,’ he tells the operator. As the line is plugged through, George says: 'How are yer?’ But then he falters. It is a girl. 'Who is this, Mrs Johnson?’ says George blushing. Then he roars with laughter as the voice replies. 'No, I’m Janet. I thought I would ring you and tell you I still love you.’” - An enterprising fan calls the hotel where The Beatles were staying; from an article in an Australian newspaper, June 1964; quoted in The Beatles Down Under [x]
