Fashion resurrection: Syd Barrett

Dead people don't sue so we can gaily rip off their looks without fear of libel causing a wrinkle. This year American socialites Nan Kempner and Talitha Getty were the inspiration for the Nicole Richie look-alikes, while men got the Duke of Windsor. But they couldn't beat Syd Barrett, whose death in July reminded us all of how his dandy/hippy look was, like, so now. The fact that he was the most beautiful man ever born in this country has obviously not influenced our decision a jot.

Whenever I hear the Kinks song "Dedicated Follower of Fashion" I just flash to all those early images of Roger and Syd in frilly blouses. To see it now makes me giggle, especially Roger.
