  1. Iconic….you chose some great shots of dv. I had the opportunity to meet her once at the met….my ex worked for her. he was an expert on military costume of the 18th and 19th century. fascinating….another lifetime ago and before you were born i am sure! keep up the brilliant work…xx.dt

  2. Mark, Did you ever see the play about DV called Full Gallop? It was so divine, as dv would say. I saw it years ago at the manhattan theater club, and will never forget it. Fabulosity to the max!
