Vintage Warren Beatty

Last weekend we watched Shampoo for the first time, giving ourselves a jumbo-sized dose of no holds barred mid-70's chic mixed
with a strange desire to take a long, wind-whipped drive through Coldwater Canyon... In each of his (non-period) films Beatty seems to have represented an in-the-moment style, a lot of it through his hair as these photos show. Peter Biskind has just released an intimate, revealing biography titled Star: How Warren Beatty Seduced America. In it he lays out the balance Beatty achieved between his reputation as a womanizer (having dated most of his leading women) and his star status and evolution as an auteur. We pretty much devoured the sneak-peek excerpt online.
