THE RISE OF THE PARTY FACE.






WHAT -
The look is; worn in, old before your time, a bit skaggy/tired looking, adult acne and grey skin.

WHO -
Kate Moss, Amy Winehouse, Mary Kate Olsen, Pete Doherty, Allison Mosshart an Mischa Barton.

HOW -
A diet consisting of fags/booze/drugs/late nights/having a lot of fun.
(addiction is a serious issue, along with all that trouble it causes your organs, we're just talking on a superficial level you know.)

WHY -
OK so if your life options are;
1- none of the above and keeping young looking for say 5-10 years longer
2- having the best time, all of the time and not really looking after ones self and losing that youthful thing which no one cool has anyway, then I know which I would chose.


WHEN -
This look is a timeless classic. Sported by the rockettes, models, groupies and party kids since the 60's. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Sousie Sioux, Courtney Love and Jim Morrison were all surrounded and supported by party faces full time which helped build an image of a full-filled lifestyle to their adoring fans.
