Style Icons: Female »Julie Christie

Julie ChristieDespite her nonchalant attitude towards fame and acting and therefore a not nearly as prolific career as you might expect, lovely Christie in many ways still stands as the symbolic actress of the 1960s and 70s.

Whether she's playing cold in this weeks pick Petulia; romantic in Doctor Zhivago; sympathetic and distraught in previous pick Don't Look Now, or smart and entrepreneural in McCabe and Mrs Miller, the graceful and strong actress is always pitch perfect and radiant. No wonder Warren Beatty fell for her.

She rarely works these days, having only appeared in a few films since the eighties, but the world waits with baited breath the see her on screen again. Also, she gives ashy blondes a good name. I've never seen hair that I envied so much as her locks in Shampoo. They would make Jonathan Antin cry (but then again, what doesn't?)
