Marchesa Luisa Casati

Tilda Swinton has always been astonishingly outstanding, and that's really not much news. She grows gorgeous while getting old, and keeps cleverness and success together in a silent implausible way. Who you're maybe not so much aware of is Marchesa Luisa Casati's genius, which I've been obsessed from a couple of months ago. She was one of those rich weirdos unbelievably pale and tense and snob (all features that always naturally follow one another), one of those that could only have born in the nineteenth century, because since 1900 rich people became boringly rational and falsely relaxed, and usually started owning a football team. She used to walk down there throw narrow Venetian lanes, understandably patronizing with her domestic crows, peacocks and ghepards. She was clearly an art collector, and she got so much into debts that at the end all her belongings had been sold by auctions. One of the buyers was nothing less that Coco. According to plan she died desperately poor and lonely. This little vain exposition of my knowledge and researches was just to show one properly Tilda personifies the girl, in that editorial by Paolo Roversi.
First the real one.

Is it just me or is she wearing THESE miu miu bejewelled socks? With these I would have spent such an happy winter. Not too late if you feel the need to cheer up my mood, mum. Actually, I thought just Sasha could wear it. Seriously, I thought she had some kind of exclusive right. I didn't mind thought, 'cause she used to wear them particularly well. A couple of pages from two different editorials to stress my point.

Keep speaking on our subject, also Georgina Chapman tried to play the Marchesa, but personally I find her far too sexy and curvaceous, somehow too healthy to turn into the skinny nervous and compulsive character Luisa Casati had to be. Here the shoot by Peter Lindbergh.

I let you think I'm just envious of her breast. I let you.
