On December 6, 2017 Vanity Fair published ‘Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick: A Brief, White-Hot, and Totally Doomed Romance’, a rambling yet nostalgic look into Andy and Edie’s short-lived mutual obsession. ‘Comparing Andy and Edie to, at once, Marilyn Monroe and Romeo and Juliet, the article is a lot, but it also managed to rekindle my fascination with the duo’s strange mirroring of one another, as Edie transformed from a Cambridge brunette into a shorn-locked, silver-haired, amphetamine queen. As Warhol described in The Philosophy of Andy Warhol: From A To B and Back Again,

Human beings are born solitary, but everywhere they are in chains – daisy chains – of interactivity. Social actions are makeshift forms, often courageous, sometimes ridiculous, always strange. And in a way, every social action is a negotiation, a compromise between ‘his,’ ‘her’ or ‘their’ wish and yours.
