It’s a shame I’m not more of a fashionista, I might have known about this some months ago …
Regardless, I’m delighted to see that Mr Lagerfeld has noted Theodora is more than just a religious icon, he’s granted her fashion icon status too.
Theodora and Coco – now there’s a union!
Perfectly timed for Theodora‘s Penguin publication in the US.
And Shirley Maclaine’s invoking her too – halfway down this page.
(actually, that date is several years AFTER Theodora’s death, and Theo was hardly pro-Pope, what with being an eastern Christian/anti-Chalcedonian in faith, but still, once all-powerful, always all-powerful …)
