Hollywood was at a crossroads in the 1960s. The studio system was breaking down, mass-media was just beginning, and life was becoming increasingly international. This made for a new kind of stardom—a kind in which leading ladies had the power to make their mark on a worldwide audience and in the history books. This new kind of fame led to a group of iconic women who changed the face of fashion, film, and society in their own little (or massive) ways.
