Lover as Muse

In history there have occasionally been top male fashion designers who have actually been straight and one of those was French-American designer Oleg Cassini. Cassini was, for a time, married to Oscar winning Hollywood actress Gene Tierney and he also dated Grace Kelly. He is probably best known as the designer of choice for my beloved Jackie Kennedy Onassis, when she was First Lady.

As I've been off the air in recent days due to absence from Sydney and illness, this is just a quick post of some photos of Gene in Oleg Cassini. Normally blogging will resume shortly.

The Frock has a great selection of vintage Oleg Cassini gowns to drool over at the moment. Anyone got a spare $5,000 they want to lend me indefinitely?
