Worth, Paris

  1. Marie Antoinette on an exceptionally bad day?

    Just kiddin'. Lovely pic.

  2. Dear Anon: It is lovely isn't it? I cackled at your comment on marie antoinette - bad day indeed to lose her arms as well! However worth is from a later period, and as you can see from the silhouette more queen victoria. The first time I ever heard of worth, paris was when i was a mere chickadee - i was reading all the dazzling drag queen romances of barbra cartland second hand. My cousin had the entire collection! Seeing the name Worth, Paris always brings me back to those innocent days - my first heady brush with bustles and beaus. Completely damaged my idea of what romance should be.
