I was reading a book the other day and in an interview with Carole Anne Ford came across a fascinating fact: DW launched Vidal Sassoon's career.
Verity Lambert and Carole Anne Ford both agreed that Susan needed a distinctive haircut to make her stand out among her "terrestrial" classmates. Ford went to Sassoon for the initial style, and the connections he made with the BBC consequently ignited his fame.
I really have no idea why I found this so interesting. In fact, I find it a little creepy. Anyway, it will make for a handy anecdote to pull out when you want to escape from idle cocktail party chatter. Tell this story, and no normal person will want to talk to you anymore. Or know what you are talking about.
