Nu Décollage

March 22, 2016


Pauline Bonaparte, Napoleon's sister was widowed at age 22. Napoleon anxious about her promiscuity arranged a marriage to Prince Camillo Borghese making her Duchess of Guastalla. 

Legend states Pauline was a nudist. She enjoyed being carried in & out of the bath by a muscular black moor and warmed her feet in a lady in waitings, decollagè!

Pauline was also an avid collector of Kashmir Shawls. She can been seen with Kashmir Shawls drapped on and around her in may of her portraits. It is said that her lovers would gift her a Kashmir Shawl to get her attention. Of course, a gift of a Kashmir Shawl also meant they were financial savy.
