I think that is cute that she had so many dogs.

Gillian Anderson as the Duchess in the new Channel Four drama Any Human Heart (adpated from William Boyd's novel):


from telegraph.co.uk

Not the best shot but I've seen pictures on set and the resemblance and looks are convincing.
Tom Hollander plays the Duke of Windsor.

How exactly does one sign up for this kind of training, do madams advertise in the Learning Annex catalog or something?

It annoys me to no end that there aren't really many books about Wallis's fantastic style! She always looked so flawless and impeccable! She's probably my second favorite fashion icon after Jackie O.

The Duchess of Windsor's Wardrobe to be auctioned off

I think this is exciting and tragic. Exciting, because it will be intriguing to see how much each item fetches, but tragic because it will all be scattered. I'd rather the wardrobe get donated to a museum.
