Gimme Shelter by the Rolling Stones has been stuck in my head for days.
I know it’s no Dude Looks Like a Lady, but it’s still a great song. It also reminded me of Mick Jagger’s jumpsuit collaboration with my favorite vintage designer, Ossie Clark. I’ve mentioned that Mick wore Ossie clothes but never posted any pictures, so here’s Mick in an Ossie jumpsuit on the cover of Life.
Ossie himself was very sex-ay. I think this photo of Ossie and designer Alice Pollock is the hottest picture evah of a designing duo.

I also love David Bailey’s photo of Ossie with model Chrissy Shrimpton. Most guys couldn’t get away with striking that pose, but it works.
