I remember that Countess Katia of Limburg-Stirum, nee Jvr. della Faille de Leverghem was a catwalk model. She is married to Count Thierry of Limbourg-Stirum, who is a grandson of the late Count and Countess of Paris (head of the French Royal Family).

Now, could someone make my day and show me some model pictures of Rafael de Medina

I thought this could be a nice thread but now it is a pity that with 'models' not is meant 'role models' but catwalk models.

Can it be more superficial?

I thought with the question was meant aristicratic ladies who had so much influence on society that what they did, or wore, or purchased immediately became fashion. Or artistocrat ladies who became immensely influenceable, thanks to a relationship or thanks to having a salon which was frequented by politicians, artists, authors, etc.

Famous mistresses who became a role model also for society were for an example Diane de Poitiers, Duchesse de Valentinois (1499-1566) or Françoise-Athénaïs de Rochechouart de Mortemart, Marquise de Montespan (1641-1707).

Or for an example salons led by aristicrat ladies who became immensely influenceable. It even became rivalling salons between ladies who could claim to have the best and brightest as their guest. Everytheing they wore became fashion. Some late 19th and early 20th-Century Paris salons were major centres of music, including those of the Princesse de Polignac and Comtesse Greffulhe. In Spain, the Duchess of Alba had a salon which was renowned. Etc.

But I understand it is just about ladies of blue blood showing a dress for 40 seconds on a catwalk somewhere.

Yes, HenriM. We are of the same opinion...I was quite disgusted when I saw what "models" would mean , here in this thread. And I'm sad that for some people, being a "catwalk model" will be considered as a good thing. But, hum...If you wants to do a thing considered "good" today, do something that some years ago was bad, and you'll never be mistaken! And if you wants to do something really, really bad and being a "rebell", oh, just do something that some years ago was really, really good. Values are not only changed, but inversed!

Vanesa.

Ummm, I don't quite follow you two actually. Henri, forgive my ignorance, but I should think at least Marella Agnelli never really showed a dress for 40 seconds on a catwalk somewhere. She was modelling for some magazines in her early years as she's stunningly beautiful and elegant. And as for the "role model", are you referring to the spiritual way?(just a question indeed...) I should say if you would have some ideas/examples about "role model", could you share them with me here?

And Vanesa, ummm, I don't quite get your reaction either. is it that disgusting?I don't actually think modelling would be something "bad", it's nothing with ethic, but just an occupation. why does it have to be a good or bad thing? and i appreciate them just because many of them are truly beauties. furthermore, i don't think i have the right to judge other ppl's lives.:)

I don't see how modelling can be such a bad thing. Like any other job, if you behave decently there is no problem with that.
Any of these ladies is naked or making pornographic modelling.
In my opinion, modelling is a great work for a royal or no-royal (if they pretty and elegant, of course).

I find it quite rude that the both of you would knock down another member for starting an innocent discussion that you deem "superficial" as well as "disgusting".

Has it ever occurred to the both of you that your interest in royalty maybe deemed as "archaic" "pointless" "useless" (as well as other colorful adjectives) by millions of people in today's modern age?

Just because there are people out in this world whose interest differs vastly from yours you should be smart and mature enough not knock them down for it.

Essentially, if you have nothing nice or constructive to add to the conversation that you classify as "disgusting" and "superficial" do yourselves a favor and do not respond.


Finally, if you would like to start a new topic Role Models, Henri M., I'm sure a few people would find it an interesting discussion.


BACK ON TOPIC!

It depends how you define being a model. Without any doubt there is a close relation between the fashion industry and royals - at least those who have star quality.

So a lot of Princesses may not have walked the catwalk but had their cover shoots taken for Vogue etc ... Princess Caroline, Fergie, Lady Di, Princess Mary come to my mind and I am sure there are much more. That's kind of modelling too although the purpose is making advertising for themselves / their country's designers / their monarchy.
