"BETTE DAVIS": The divine Bette welcomed this Dublin-born Zero, Dries, Celine collector to the USA...


The style icon who was so much more than style. 

When I was fresh off the boat I was strolling down Fifth Avenue NYC, when I locked gazes with an ancient lady, giving me the most magnificent evil eye. We approached, we stared, we passed by. It was Bette Davis. Four days later she died. OK, she died in France so it can't have been her, nevertheless, I know what I saw. The divine Bette welcomed me to the US of A. I believe she'd have liked my closet.
