60s STAR STYLE; Jenny boyd

One of my favourite models from the Sixties has to be Jenny Boyd, sibbling of the lovely Patti boyd who was George Harrison's wife.

Born Helen Mary boyd in 1947 in Guilford, Surrey she later became to be known as "Jenny" after she was given her nickname by her infant sister Patty after her favourite doll.

She dated folk rock star Donovan who wrote the famous song Jennifer Juniper about her.

 Then in 1970 she married Fleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood on June 12, and they had two daughters: Amy Rose and Lucy. After divorcing Fleetwood (and remarrying and redivorcing him), Jenny eventually married drummer Ian Wallace (formerly of King Crimson).
She attended UCLA in the late 1980s and earned a Ph.D. in psychology, and became a clinical consultant and author. She co-authored a book about music and psychology, titled Musicians in Tune.

She possesed effortless rock star style and was one of the only girls who could wear a full on medieval dress and not look like a ridiculous wench from a pantomime.

She wore everything that I pine for ; Tight leather jackets with cream ruffle shirts, velvet deco patterned suits, and a myriad of medieval style garbs which Im sure she got from working in the beatles  apple boutique who had in-house designers called the Fool. They were a group of Scandanavian artists who were responsible for painting the mural on the side of the boutique which had landed them in trouble, they also designed and sold clothes in the shop in much of a medieval and folkloric style.
Lucky girl!
