Almost a sacrilege to talk 60's/early 70's jetset and leave out Marissa Berenson, the icon of the glam interntional bohemian socialite set. One vacation at La Mamounia, I sat next to Ms. Berenson for a week straight without saying one word to her! Can you imagine?! Both of us in our outrageously large floppy hats and sarongs, eyeing each other up and down and not one word could I muster! I learned then and there that I had to sharpen my charm skills when sat next to the international glitterati.
