BOOK DESCRIPTION

Imported from France. Text in French!

Princess Natalie Paley was the granddaughter of Tsar Alexander II. Haunted by the death of her father, the Grand Duke Paul Alexandrovich, the memories plagued her throughout her entire life. In exile, Natalie took refuge in a world where only the imagination mattered.

She had all the qualities: beauty, spirit, individuality, independence, cosmopolitanism. She became one of the leading figures in the cultural life of Paris. Her life's journey took her from St. Petersburg to New York via Paris, Venice, Salzburg and Hollywood. She became acquainted with some of the biggest cultural icons of the early 20th century, including Marie-Laure de Noailles, Luchino Visconti, Coco Chanel, George Cukor, Colette and Marlene Dietrich ...

This biography tells a moving story, a destiny out of the ordinary: a wrecked childhood, two marriages (with the designer Lucien Lelong and the Broadway producer John Chapman Wilson), an amazing career as a model and actress and dancer with the stormy passions Lifar and writers such as Paul Morand, Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Erich Maria Remarque and Jean Cocteau, with whom she enjoyed the pleasures of opium. A tormented existence as pomp and dreams, failures and bursts are skirted with an unusual intensity.
