Storyline

In 1962 budding young photographer David Bailey gets a fifteen guinea contract working for 'Vogue' magazine. For his first shoot,an Acrylan advert,he picks inexperienced teenage model Jean Shrimpton,who has left home to escape a bullying father and moves in with Bailey,despite his having a wife. When the magazine launches its Young Ideas feature,to capture a youth readership, Bailey and Jean are sent on a photo shoot to New York with the magazine's fashion editor Lady Clare Rendlesham. Lady Clare is incensed when Bailey defies her orders and shoots impressively unorthodox photos of his nervous muse,demanding his removal from the magazine. Vogue editor Ailsa Garland,however,recognises the innovative nature of Bailey's work and over-rules Lady Clare,giving rise to one of the most famous partnerships of the Swinging Sixties.

starts slow then slowly picks up pace
3 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

never heard of these people! so i decided to watch and find out.

first i could not understand some of the dialog due to that inner city British accent - sorry. then the editing jumped around so. the story line is disjointed early on so you cannot get to know these characters. it was as if the director was in a fuss to get to the NYC scenes.

the NYC part of the film is much more interesting and in that the characters shine. unfortunately they must have hired a 10 year old to do the 'tourist' snap shots of the city as those photos were just awful an added nothing to the story. we know they are in 'the big city'.

the two strong willed leads and the insecure model slowly become a bit unbelievable and then the shows over!

will not watch again.
