This is so perfect. (Well, I can’t see the bottom of it, but I assume nothing wacky is happening out of frame. If it is, it’s lost to the winds of time!) Truly, any actress could wear this entire thing tomorrow and everyone would correctly love it. She’s GORGEOUS. And those earrings? All of this is spectacular.
Miles Davis is also, naturally, well-accessorized here, at the premiere of The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. I went to her Wiki to see if they were married at this point, but they were not — they were not technically even together at this point. They had a rather tumultuous, and lengthy, relationship: “She first dated jazz trumpeter Miles Davis in the 1960s, while he was going through his divorce with dancer Frances Davis. Davis used a photo of Tyson for his 1967 album, Sorcerer. Davis told the press in 1967 that he intended to marry Tyson in March 1968 after his divorce was finalized, but he married singer Betty Davis that September. Tyson and Davis rekindled their relationship in 1978. They were married on November 26, 1981 in a ceremony conducted by Atlanta mayor Andrew Young at the home of actor Bill Cosby. Their marriage was tumultuous due to Davis’ volatile temper and infidelity. Davis credited Tyson with saving his life and helping him overcome his cocaine addiction. They resided in Malibu, California and New York City, until she filed for divorce in 1988. Their divorce was finalized in 1989, two years before Davis died in 1991.” I wonder if Cicely’s friends had a lot of conversations behind her back about this relationship; Miles Davis was a genius, but geniuses can be hard to live with.
