Missoni, What are you Getty-ing at?

(Talitha Getty's late 60's boho riche)

(Missoni's Resort 2012 spin. Notice those horribly on-trend Franken-shoes)

Oh poor little rich girl, when will your appeal wane? 

Talitha was another one of those casualties of perpetually sullen white girls with the world at her feet. Married to oil tycoon, John Paul Getty Jr, Talitha had the luxury of ruminating in Marrakesh and crafting an oft mimicked sense of style from the quaint garb of natives

Talitha died in 1971 from heroin overdose because she could afford to, but she continues to inspire fashion followers today with Angela Missoni revisiting Getty's Boho Riche style for Resort 2012

The legend carries on.
