gloria
A new book’s been published on the home of Gloria von Thurn und Taxis, but she’s frankly turned dowdy in her current incarnation. Click the image to see and read a bit about the younger, wilder, glorious Princess Gloria I knew and loved in a wonderful photo by Roxanne Lowit, who covered a Karl Lagerfeld perfume launch at Versailles with me back in 1986. Not only did she go down on Karl’s cake, she led a few lucky souls on a comic tour of Versailles. This didn’t make my New York Times report, but at one point she wondered whether her ancestors had “gone pee-pee behind the pillars.”
