Description

The glamorous aristocrats Daisy and Fred de Cabrol formed one of the most prominent twentieth-century high society couples on the international scene. Leading members of the exclusive café society, they socialized with the biggest names in the haut monde-from the Maharani of Kapurthala, to Queen Amelia of Portugal, to their close friends the Windsors. The couple attended every lavish ball of the era and was sure to catch the eye of fashion photographers such as Cecil Beaton at sumptuous parties thrown by Etienne de Beaumont or Marie-Laure Venice. The Winter Ball organized by the Baronne de Cabrol for her charity L’Essor, held at the Palais des Glaces in Paris, remains one of the most memorable and spectacular of the epoch. Reproducing pages from the scrapbooks crafted with beauty and wit by the Baron de Cabrol between 1938 and the 1960s, this volume reveals the privileged and extravagant world of the café society. Through collages, watercolors, and previously unpublished archival documents, readers will discover the exceptional journey of a couple who were at once actors and observers in a golden age of elegance and art.
