Diana and Reed Vreeland. Note her leopard print bag. The sandals are those she had made in Capri after viewing the famed pornographic wall paintings at Pompeii. Restricted to male tourists at the time, D.V. obtained special permission from Mussolini. And amongst the painted figures was a slave whose duties included satisfying the lady of the house, wearing the simplest thong sandal as befit his status. The Capri sandal was born.
Former first lady Jackie Kennedy (whose husband President John F. Kennedy had been assassinated in 1963) and Coretta Scott King at Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1968 funeral. Two women who’s husbands were viciously ripped from their lives by hatred’s bullet. This moment is heavy…raw…honest… Both of these women were fantastic.
Coretta & Jackie Kennedy at Martin's funeral. Wow...

Auntie Dolly, like Taylor, had the most amazing eyes and striking presence about her. David Bowie and Elizabeth Taylor
