Title: Duchess of Alba's Autobiography

Quote
She has turned down the chance to pose for Picasso, holds more titles than The Queen, and may have even inspired the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding dress.

But despite her high profile in her native Spain, little is known about the Duchess of Alba on these shores, with the focus more often falling on her wild hair, flamboyant fashion sense and toyboy husband.

Now the 87-year-old billionaire has shed a little more light on her event-filled life with the publication of her second autobiography - just two years after her first.

 :thankyou: for posting Snokitty.
I really enjoyed reading this article. I have always wondered why she did all those procedures to her face. IMO she wes not a beauty in her youth but had a normal face . Could it be that she is not well mentally?

 :thankyou: again. Great reading article.

But can she not see well how her face looks from all those procedures? ???

She has not aged well and had even problems in the brain which needed surgery so she looks even worse for that reason.

In any case imo she still thinks she is fabulous.

BTW her daughter is following her way and even got a new bottom  :tehe:

I would concur with that opinion.

BTW, isn't Alba = Scotland ?

Mentally, the Duchess of Alba is fine (although with age, the mind also becomes less and less).

The reason for the way the Duchess looks right now are a string of plastic surgeries at a time when plastic surgery wasn't as far progressed as it is right now. I think she once said she had her first surgery in the early 1970's. And she has had many IIRC.

There is something adorable and appealing about her.

Adorable? I would use another word which is not appropriate to use here.

The present duchess comes from a scottish branch and their surname is fitzjames stuart. They descend from an illegitimate son of an scottish king. However the title is spanish if that's what you mean.

Yep, that's what I was asking about.
