Edwige Belmond

Original photography 

Unknown photographer. Undated (circa 1977). Photography : 12,7x 8,9 cm. 

Rare. Original photo by French model, singer and punk icon Edwige Belmond. As Kristin Anderson wrote when she passed away in 2015, “she was photographed by Helmut Newton, Maripol, and Pierre et Gilles; reportedly dated both Sade and Grace Jones; kissed Andy Warhol on the cover of Façade (“The Queen of Punk Meets the Pope of Pop”); and walked the runway for both Jean Paul Gaultier and Thierry Mugler. But Belmore was much more than the boldface names she’s often associated with. An androgynous beauty who mixed Le Smoking with safety pin earrings and her trademark bleach-blonde chop, she cut a singular figure in the nightlife scenes of both Paris and New York City. When not serving as a muse to many and working the door at Le Palace, Belmore was also one-half of the French New Wave band Mathématiques Modernes”.
