Under attack

Looking at this photo may make you think: "Why is the photographer wearing a football helmet?" . Well the answer is because back in the 70s there was a "King of the Paparazzi", Mr. Ron Gallela and he had some unfortunate encounters with celebrities like Marlon Brando, shown above in the mid 70s.
We can see the mod style carried into the 70s by Marlon Brando with his turtleneck and a velvet jacket and Ron Gallela's very 70s styled leather jacket. What grabs more my attention is the shell necklace Brando is wearing, it definetly spices up a very classic outfit. It brings echoes to me of when men wore big medallions in the late 60s and of course the hippie/ethnic trend which I mentioned in my previous post.
