Boo Boo Bee Doo

When Cecil Beaton took his famous shots of her

she began by kicking off her shoes and he said that her presence was so strong that he forgot the background and even what she was wearing: none of it mattered.

This presence is something that the fashionistos and style magazines and will never be able to sell to their readers.


  1. I remember Bernard Levin once argued that a real star should be named after her.

  2. Yes, presence, charisma, it hypnotises and seduces, I love being in the company of anyone who has "it"
