Sharon Tate's Psychedelic Look And Unexpected Accessory (PHOTO)

Actress Sharon Tate, who was considered the inspiration for Malibu Barbie, was well-known for her beauty, beach body and carefree style. The "Valley Of The Dolls" star's long blonde hair, preference for jumpers, miniskirts and headbands made her the epitome of mod fashion in the '60s and a timeless style icon.

In this photo from 1965 (four years before she was murdered by members of the Manson family), Tate takes on the psychedelic look so emblematic of the decade. Matched with a bright pair of pumps and a simple up-do, Tate's eclectic look is edgy and perfect for a summer soirée -- with or without the horse.
