Way before Paris Hilton there was Mrs. Zsa Zsa Hilton…The Gabor sisters were a glamour trifecta Zsa Zsa ,Eva and Magda, talk about sister act! It was Zsa Zsa who out shown her sisters, Eva made up for lost screen time when she landed the part in “Green Acres” and Magda was a sensible girl.
Her acting career thrust her into the limelight, she appeared in a number of films the most famous being Moulin Rouge . My favorite The Queen of Outer Space is the lowest budget camp film of all time. The story of a planet inhabited by a race of Amazon women, led by an evil disfigured queen [who wears a mask] She is hell-bent on destroying all the men on Earth. Claiming that it was wars waged by men that were responsible for her mangled face [sounds a bit like a John Waters film] Of course Zsa hates the queen and conspires with the visiting spacemen to over throw her. The perfect part for Zsa Zsa, she just couldn’t help herself when it came to men.
Gabor has been married nine times. She was divorced seven times, and one marriage was annulled. Her husbands, in chronological order, are:
At a social affair, c. 1954 accompanied by international playboy and diplomat Porfirio Rubirosa (behind her, to the left)
- Burhan Asaf Belge (1937 – 1941; divorced)
- Conrad Hilton (April 10, 1942 – 1947; divorced)
- George Sanders (April 2, 1949 – April 2, 1954; divorced)
- Herbert Hutner (November 5, 1962 – March 3, 1966; divorced)
- Joshua S. Cosden, Jr. (March 9, 1966 – October 18, 1967; divorced)
- Jack Ryan (January 21, 1975 – August 24, 1976; divorced)
- Michael O’Hara (August 27, 1976 – 1983; divorced)
- Felipe de Alba (April 13, 1983 – April 14, 1983; annulled)
- Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt (August 14, 1986 – present)
Gabor’s divorces inspired her to make numerous quotable puns and innuendos about her marital (and extramarital) history. She commented: “I am a marvelous housekeeper: Every time I leave a man I keep his house. When asked, “How many husbands have you had?”, she was quoted as responding, “You mean other than my own?” While Gabor was still married to Conrad Hilton, she once admitted to having sexual relations with her stepson Nicky, future husband of Elizabeth Taylor.
I’ve saved the best for last “The Queen of Outer Space” for all you Sci Fi aficionados, The uniforms on the space men are the same ones used in “Forbidden Planet”
What can you say that hasn’t been said before Lagerfeld is a genius. The presentation was utterly unique, no trendy stuff for Karl, the set, the music, the choice of mannequins, all pure Chanel. The classic suit lives on in his modern interpretations, the low slung skirts the tight waists and the crop jackets were brilliant, very new. The fabrics are light, transparent but sumptuous at the same time, all glitter and loose knits as if produced by angels, with an array of color and texture that is pure Lagerfeld. I could go on and on…but watch the show and you will understand my excitement.
I don’t even want to post the photos of the latest window display that American Apparel installed at their Houston Street Shop. I even hate to write this and give them the satisfaction of the publicity. Female mannequin anatomically correct right down [literally] to pubic hair is just plain vulgar.
I’ve been a visual merchandiser my entire life and in my younger days crossed a few line into bad taste but never anything as taboo as this. I am anything but prudish, and consider myself “modern” in the choices I make into display themes. The only consolation is that it’s just a window display and will soon disappear [none to soon for me]
