A Compelling Reason to Visit Rough Point in 2005

Doris Duke's... Evening dress, Madame Grès , circa 1966, silk crepe with ostrich feathers.


SHANGRI LA ...Moroccan style. I believe this is from Doris Duke's house. Just incredible.


Doris Duke ~ Doris Duke (November 22, 1912 – October 28, 1993) was an American heiress, horticulturalist, art collector, and philanthropist. Daughter of an immensely wealthy tobacco tycoon, Duke was able to fund a life of global travel and wide-ranging interests. These extended across journalism, competition surfing, jazz piano, wildlife conservation, Oriental art and Hare Krishna.


A gorgeous view of Falcon Lair as it appeared once Doris Dukes renovations were complete. The house would remain virtually unchanged until the late 1990's, a wonderful reminder of the early days of Hollywood, perched high in the hills of Benedict Canyon.
