One of RK's favorite 60's Icons is Pattie Boyd-Harrison-Clapton. Pattie was married to two of the most famous rockers of all time but to us she was much more...
A little wiki bio:
Patricia Anne "Pattie" Boyd (born 17 March 1944) is an English model and photographer, and the first wife of George Harrison of The Beatles, after whom she married Eric Clapton. She was the inspiration of love songs written by both musicians, most notably Harrison's "Something," and Clapton's "Layla", "Wonderful Tonight," and "Bell Bottom Blues."
Boyd started her modelling career in 1962, but was rejected by many photographers owing to her unconventional looks, including rather prominent front teeth; one stated, "models don't look like rabbits". She modelled in London, New York and Paris (for Mary Quant and others), and was photographed by David Bailey and Terence Donovan.
An exhibition of photographs taken by Boyd during her days with Harrison and Clapton opened at the San Francisco Art Exchange on February 14, 2005, titled Through the Eye of a Muse. The exhibition also ran again in San Francisco in February 2006, and for six weeks between June and July 2006, in London.
Pattie is a fabulous photographer and author as well. We read her book and loved it. We did feel kind of sorry for her. Even though she lived a wealthy life style it seemed she just never quite found the love she needed.

Pattie has a fabulous website kudos to the designer! She has all her images there and she has the real images that aren't staged by professional photo shoots.
Pattie is still beautiful and in my opinion one the most iconic faces of the 1960's. A very talented woman who was much more than a rocker wife and model. Cheers Pattie!
