The first supermodel

The first photo-supermodel can safely assume the Countess di Castiglione, nee Virginie Élisabeth Louise Charlotte Antoinette Thérèse Marie Oldoïni. Lovely blond charmed the Emperor Louis Napoleon. But she spent the last years of her life in a room draped in black cloth. All mirrors she closed with a cloth so that they can’t reflected her old age. Eternal Beauty was unattainable, and she doesn’t want to see her lamentable end. Shut up in her black room, the Countess continued her photo sessions. Here are some of them:
