Preraphaelite Woman

I lived in Toronto during the 1970s and 1980s at the height of the punk years. I always figured that the punks alluded more to the Victorian period than did the hippies who were more open about their Victorian symbolism. My friend alludes to that waif like aesthetic. If the Preraphaelites flourished today, my friend would be a sure fire star among them. Unfortunately, that would probably involve constant harassment and wooing by Dante Gabriel Rosetti.
