Modestly Large Fox Fur Wrap

I have seen this photo before, and, in that location, the individual in the photo was identified. Sadly the memory of her name is lost in a haze of Star Trek trivia and the last little bits of my higher education. I sense a reader or two may be able to supply an ID of this lady, whom I believe to be royalty of some sort. So, feel free to comment.

Hollywood, at least, always thought royalty was a little too enamored of ermine, a rather poor choice. This lady has the right idea. If only “power fox” was the fur of royalty and not ermine. Why suggest power when you can project it?

  1. I know the website that you refer to. I have looked through my photographs and unfortunately stored that picture without a name. I have racked what brain I have left that alcohol has not ravaged and come up with the name Sara or Sarita Montiel.

  2. This is of course Ludmila Tcherina in the Daughter of Mata Hari. If anyone can locate that picture I would be willing to pay a 1000$ for it. This is the most fantastic fur ever shown on cinema. It was made from 80 (!) white foxes and weighed 30 kilo!

  3. I like that one, a suitably exotic lady for such an amazing fur. Though I’ll stick with the online version and save the grand for a down payment on a furrier willing to recreate it for real…
