It's always thrilling to pose as a photographer's model. This section of my wild, wonderful world shows the fruit of some of my efforts.
I know you must be thinking, "That can't possibly be the redheaded minx Lypsinka." But it is me, mons petits, in a blonde wig styled by Mr. Avram of Vidal Sassoon in New York. The photographer Brian Theis asked me to pose for his exhibition "Berlin." So we decided to evoke Marlene Dietrich. With the help of makeup artist Paddy Crofton I think we did a pretty good job, don't you?
Here are some of my private photographs from my jet-setting, gorgeous, celebrity filled life!
That's me with director Paul Schrader, star Dennis Hopper, producer Gale Anne Hurd, co-star Julian Sands and cinematographer Jean-Yves Escoffier on location during the filming of the HBO film "Witch Hunt," in which I played a bordello madam who is also a witch. The location was the Ennis-Brown house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in Los Angeles. It was thrilling to work with Dennis Hopper. I told him that putting me in a movie with him was like putting Phyllis Diller in a movie with Marlon Brando!
That's Doris Roberts, myself, and my late friend Roddy McDowall in Los Angeles. Doris and Roddy were the very best of friends. Roddy's life is a great inspiration!
My friend Michael Feinstein, me, and co-star Penelope Ann Miller at the premiere of "Witch Hunt" at the Director's Guild in glamorous Hollywood. I wish Ann Miller had been there, too!
Makeup artist and illustrator extraordinaire Jeff Judd had just spent about six hours turning me into Dovima for an Albert Sanchez photo shoot in Los Angeles when this photo was taken. Long live Dovima!!
Here I am with the charming and vivacious stage star Charlene Bourgeois (Charles Busch) at a fashion event at Industria Studios in downtown Manhattan. Celebrities had been asked to design outfits for little teddy bears that were auctioned off. Charlene dressed hers as herself in "Vampire Lesbians of Sodom" and mine was dressed as "Bearbra" Streisand.
