Marquise Marina Ripa di Meana (on the left) wearing one of her infamous, crazy outfits:

Countess Patrizia de Blanck with daughter Baroness Giada Drommi at the same event. Patrizia cannot stand Marina, and they had a big row live on a TV show, where they insulted each other. Again, noblesse oblige!

Marquise Marina Ripa di Meana won the "Golden Needle" for being the most elegant lady, at a gala in Rome.

Baroness Giada Drommi de Blank (the blonde girl) with her Mom Countess Patrizia de Blank and guests, was awarded the "Golden Needle" for her character in the film "Guardami l'anima!" (Search my soul!)

Thanks for the information, tunney11! However, I don't get anything by typing in either Olympia de Rothschild or Aldobrandini. What should you type in to see the photo retrospectives ? Thanks !

Olympia de Rothschild

Type in Rothschild and go thru. Isifa and Newscom have a large photo retro of Guy's life. You have to page thru to find the ones of Olympia and David de Rothschild. The ones at Isifa you can enlarge.

In addition, any time you are searching for photos of Olympia, I would suggest using "Rothschild" because sometimes David and Olympia are listed as "Barron and Baroness de Rothschild".

Olympia de Rothschild

Also search "Rotschild" and you will find some photos. The photo agencies sometimes miss spell names.

Thanks to everyone contributing to this thread. I very much enjoy looking at the pictures of some of these rarely seen Italian nobles.
