What do you think about this picture,does Nico singing along EPI in Michigan ??
I got some doubts due the flowers dress.....was a warm night,cause is not Nico's style,and the odd films behind....is a fake ??

To me Taxine it doesn't look faked, if it is its a good job!

As for an opinion on Nico's dress I think sometimes we have a certain view how the VU should look and its difficult or surprising to see them in anything hippy/bright. As a model Nico would have been given loads of clothes to wear and that floral dress print was very popular in the 60s - i'm not a fashion expert but could be a Betsey Johnson number?

Nice pic by the way, not seen it before..

It would take a deranged mind to trouble to fake a flower-print dress onto Nico.

Well, even Andy Warhol did use some flowers for his silkscreens..

I'm probably wrong, but looking at the face (even looking up from below) I don't think it's Nico. She's similar but she doesn't seem to have Nico's exceptional beauty. just saying.. :?
