Marianne Faithfull ┃Mademoiselle Age Tendre (1967)









PARTY DRESSES

As 1966 turned into 1967, songstress Marianne Faithfull was chosen as the cover girl and star model to present this eight-page 'Party Dress' fashion feature in a special end-of-year issue of M.A.T., in which, the French teen magazine decided to celebrate the top movers and shakers of the revolution in pop, fashion, modelling and film from across the channel in 'Swinging England' along with the traditional seasonal festivities.
