Forever Style Icon: Marianne Faithfull

It's no wonder that British beauty Marianne Faithfull was the inspiration behind several Rolling Stones' songs. A talented folk singer in her own right, Faithfull began performing in the early 60s and had her first hit with "As Tears Go By" in 1964. She soon became the darling of the swingin 60's, first marrying artist John Dunbar, then starting a much publicized relationship with Mick Jagger. Her tumultuous career has spanned over 5 decades, as she continues to make music today. The exceptional singer/song-writer is so much more than just a muse. She is a style icon and a accomplished musician and we love her for that.
