Marchesa Luisa Casati
astonished society by parading around with her two cheetah and wearing live snakes as jewellery. She held some of the most legendary costume parties in history. 






Carine Roitfeld's reinvention of Luisa Casati  























i want a pet cheetah please







"Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety"

She fled to London from a £25 million debt and ended her days in relative poverty- she was caught rummaging bins to find feathers to decorate her hair. MY kinda lady. She died in 1957 and was buried wearing leopard skins and false eyelashes.
