"To always be aware of your face, your figure, to always have to wonder if you hair and nails are perfect—it's not healthy. Maybe for a few years. Not for a lifetime." —Naomi Sims

Love your blog. I did not know Berry Berenson (sister of Marisa & they were granddaughters of Schiaparelli I think) was a photographer.
