Greta to Glam. …

„This issue of 1992 Architectural Digest has been hauting me for more than 20 years. It presents photos of Greta Garbo’s colorful NY Apartment. I Always regretted Not Stealing it From It’s owner. I usually don’t Steal From people’s Coffee tables but that was exactly how the owner, a very terrible Person, had come into It’s possession.Thanks to the incredible one-and-only Gaga Nielsen it’s with me now. No Stealing necessary.“

  1. Bei so viel Schönheit, Charisma, Eleganz und Stil, fühle ich mich aufgerufen, ganz Partypooper, die Gegenseite anzuführen. Hat jemand schon mal realisiert, was mit Pete Doherty heute so los ist, optisch?

  2. Habe ich beiläufig aus dem Augenwinkel registriert, dass er vom ungepflegten Babyface zum ungepflegten älteren Mann wurde. Wenn er nicht mit Kate Moss liiert gewesen wäre, hätte ich niemals mitbekommen, dass er existiert.
