a little OTT parhaps- but i come from a family where having a single flawless stone was considered superior to inferior jems in an elaborate setting. BTW what did people expect about her taste in jewellery- just remember her shoes- a lot of them but all 'fugly'
That must suck (and I'm not talking about the jewelry and Kimora Lee Simmons). Her husband worked so hard to steal that money so he could buy her jewelry, and it was going to be auctioned by the government that overthrew her?
*Anyway, I'm full Filipino, and my dad was around when the Marcoses ruled, tiara and everything.
I've met Imelda myself when I was little (8 or 9), in her house. When you stand next to her, you think she's royalty. She really does have gracefulness, class, and elegance going for her. All I have to say, you can't judge a person unless you meet them face to face.
I have met her as an adult and I can tell you that she is living in LULU Land. A child doesn't have a very good perspective on reality. I am glad you enjoyed that experience as a child...but as an adult.....I am afraid her mind is bent. There you have it
To many people, the flamboyant wife of former President Ferdinand Marcos is best known for the more than 1200 pairs of shoes she left behind in Manila's Malacanang Place when she and her husband fled to Hawaii in 1986. But Imelda Marcos also had an appetite for jewelry.
That number seems low to me for some reason. 1200? But i guess back in the 80s that was alot of pairs of shoes.
