PREDICTIONS: 1964 – AVEDON

eyes open on what’s AHEAD

eyes – clear, unblinking – looking into the new year with interest and a hint of humor, ready to take on what’s coming – and like it! the wide-open eye, set off by a thick maze of lashes and a delicate tint of lavender – smoky lavender, a good hint at what’s ahead at revlon. lashes, dipped in fabulash, also by revlon.

A GREAT WAVE OF CHIFFON

BOB DYLAN 1965

Bob Dylan, the teenager’s troubadour came out of the West to wander restlessly through the country, playing and singing his own folk tunes, like ‘”Blowin’ in the Wind.”‘ More of a words man than a musician, he sets his verbal flashes of insight to simple melodies that hush his audience. Now, five years later, his restless wanderings include brief but profitable stops at Columbia’s recording studio which is releasing his latest L.P., Bringing It All Back Home.
