David Steen recalls: “When Britt Ekland (whom I had known and photographed over the years) moved in with Rod Stewart they invited me to stay with them at their house in Beverley Hills to do some shots of Rod who had several major recordings due out at that time. The house was a treasure-trove of clothes and the sort of beautiful objects that made perfect props. Britt had always been an avid collector of stylish, decorative bits and pieces; Rod had money to spend and took to this new lifestyle with enthusiasm. Suddenly he was becoming glamorised by Britt and they became the couple to watch. From a photographer’s point of view it worked well; masses of clothes (white suits, silk pyjamas, feathers, furs, laces), countless pieces of art deco and Tiffany lamps, plus his collection of cars – and all against the Hollywood background.”

Biography: Born in London in 1945, rock musician Rod Stewart always dreamt of being a professional football player, until he began touring with various R&B, folk and blues bands. Consequently, he played with such artists as Mick Fleetwood and Jeff Beck until he joined The Faces, with good friend guitarist Ronnie Wood. They released three albums, with A Nod’s as Good as a Wink… To a Blind Horse reaching UK Number Two and US Number Six, and Ooh La La UK Number One and US Number Twenty-One. However, at the same time, Stewart was enjoying even greater success as a solo artist with hits like ‘Lady Day’ and ‘Maggie May’ and the group finally split. Rod Stewart remains one of the world’s biggest stars, although he’s equally famous for his succession of beautiful blonde girlfriends as he is for his music
