Timeless Fashion

Ali MacGraw's life is the stuff dreams are made of. After landing an assistant job in 1960 at Harper's Bazaar in New York, the magazine's editor, Diane Vreeland, put her on the cover, leading to a brief career as a model. Ten years later she was cast in Love Story, which made her an overnight star. Still referred to today by stylists such as Rachel Zoe, her look in the film came to define preppy chic, and she became celebrated as a style icon on the cover of Time magazine; her ever-present hat even became known as the ‘Ali cap'. Later on, married to producer Robert Evans, the clothes became more bohemian - as did the headwear. In 1972 she co-starred with Steve McQueen - then the biggest actor in Hollywood - in The Getaway. They became lovers - and the world's sexiest couple. She now resides in New Mexico producing yoga videos!
