Blackamoors and padded walls...interesting.

Those wall are really padded, aren't they? And that frock is really purple.

A completely original character of such unending passionate tastes. I assume you have the book published and written by her step granddaughter Suzanne Slesin? Its contents are mind boggling don't you think? To my knowledge there is or was no other
"beauty merchant" with her kind of vision for the industry, the arts and a zest for life for the whole of her life. Even her confidence with her personal appearance when obviously not a great beauty did not stop her from saying look at me-Go HR!

Love the purple dress and green jewels ... emeralds, presumably ...
