La Duquesa de Wildenstein

The Duchess of Alba, Doña Maria del Rosario Frankenstein

Manolo says, traditionally, Halloween is not the Spanish holiday.

Put the candle in this and put it on the porch.

Like the aging Hollywood starlets, the Spanish nobility (and one does not get more nobley than the Duchess de Alba), does not hesitate to get the disfiguring plastic surgery.

    Hail, king! For so thou art: behold where stands

    Even the mantilla cannot distract us enough from the face!

    I wonder what her ancestor (and maybe even this perhaps-ancestor would say about that.
