For the 1968 British release of the film Chelsea Girls, at the short-lived Arts Lab, Alan Aldridge designed the now famous poster[1]. Aldridge used the idea of an advent calendar, depicting a woman’s naked body as the Chelsea Hotel. On her belly and chest dolls protrude from windows with open shutters, and there is an open doorway where her private parts should have been.

The concept had originally been proposed as the cover for the Beatles' White Album.

The model for the poster was British actress and artist Clare Shenstone.
