Fashion Flashback: Steve McQueen and Peggy Moffitt

Mod icon Peggy Moffitt and king of cool Steve McQueen pose with his 1963 Ferrari GT Berlinetta Lusso.

The late American photographer William Claxton snapped these fantastically cool photos of his wife, '60s mod icon Peggy Moffitt (she had her hair cut by Vidal Sassoon and was the first to model Rudi Gernreich's topless bathing suit), and the iconic actor Steve McQueen in Los Angeles in 1963.

Said Claxton of his first meeting with McQueen earlier that year on the set of Love with the Proper Stranger:
"...both seductive and threatening. Time would prove my hunches, instincts, whatever you want to call them, were right about this unusual actor. He was street smart, animal-like, non-intellectual and hip. In fact, he brought new meaning to the word hip: he was super hip." (Source)
May your weekend be as good as these two looked!
