Lauren Hutton & Angelica Huston On Feminism: Exactly. I think women have been in the secondary position for 4,000 years, and it's contra naturam, against nature
The Violet Files brings us a warm and wonderful story about gal pals Lauren Hutton and Anjelica Huston. Deciding at once that they were kindred spirits working as kindred spirits during the late 1960s.
Both were fiercely intelligent and vocal about their independence in an era when women weren’t expected to be either. Both also exuded the kind of worldly glamour one can only cultivate from jetting around the globe with the likes of Jack Nicholson, enfant terrible fashion photographer David Bailey and then-Vogue-editor Diana Vreeland.
For her pact, Hutton is interviewed by Huston and also shares these glam images shot by Pamela Hanson at New York’s Lotos Club with styling by Lawren Howell.Hair by Anthony Campbell; makeup by Pati Dubroff

LH: Exactly. I think women have been in the secondary position for 4,000 years, and it’s contra naturam, against nature.
