Blonde Confusion. Blonde Enigma.

Now, Torontoist has absolutely no intention of getting into the whole Sienna-Miller-playing Edie Sedgwick debacle, because well, we have more important things to do with our time then to babble about celebrity fodder. Yet, Edie was a pretty fascinating mix of American socialite, debutante, heiress and lest we forget, Andy Warhol’s muse. Their relationship did not last through an entire calendar year, yet Edie’s inspiration on pop culture has lasted longer than anyone would’ve expected. She had a certain something, that certain something being a whole lot kooky and hopped-up on speed, but her short life proved to be very full. And this year’s Mondo-Urban Installment at the Gladstone Hotel plans to pay tribute to this 60’s icon with DJs spinning some tunes, fashion and make-up from the likes of MAC and Foxy Originals, along with some original art from local artists. So, find out more about the girl who inspired “Like a Rolling Stone” as well as being the rumoured inspiration behind all of Dylan’s seminal 1966 opus “Blonde on Blonde,” on April 20th at the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen Street West). Tickets are available at Soundscapes (552 College Street) and at Ticket Web.
