A Surreal Night Out with the Rothschilds

The Rothschilds hosted this surrealist party back in 1972 – I wonder if, as the night progressed, it degenerated into something from Eyes Wide Shut?

  1. Trying to work out what the baroness thyssen-bornemizza & guy baguenault de puchesse were up to there.. I was after some inspiration for a charity event my friend is running called Food for Life but clearly the Rothschilds took things to a whole other level. Poor Mrs Rothschild though- was she not allowed to eat? Her poor little stick thin arms .. good way to hide ghastly appearance and the plastic surgery scars for many of the guests I guess.
