July 14, 1971: Talitha Pol Getty, dutch actress and style icon of the late 1960’s dies of a heroine overdose in Rome, Italy at age 30. 
Pol became the second wife of oil heir John Paul Getty Jr. in 1968 and became part of London’s fashionable scene.  She is best remembered for an iconic photograph taken on a roof-top in Marrakesh, Morocco in January 1969 by Patrick Lichfield (1939–2005).  With her hooded husband in the background, this image (now part of the collection of the National Portrait Gallery in London) portrayed her in a slightly anxious, crouching pose, wearing a multi-coloured kaftan, white harem pants and white and cream boots.
The look seemed stylishly to typify the hippie fashion of the time and became a model over the years for what, more recently, has been referred to variously as “hippie chic”. Although, in her lifetime, Talitha Getty, who was only thirty when she died, was not much known to a wider public, fashion gurus of the late 20th and early 21st centuries have often written of her and Marrakesh.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talitha_Getty
She had one son with Getty who they named Tara Gabriel Gramophone Galaxy Getty.
