That photo of Irina is amazing.  The fact that it is so hazy adds even more to her glamour.  I still can't decide what I feel about her looks; still, virtually everyone who met her states that she was beautiful.  After all, photos don't tell the whole story......

I always think that Irina was a beauty at her youth.Though I can`t say so about her elder years: in the later photoes her features often looked so sharp...nevertheless she had style and natural elegance!

Brian, what do you think about those pearls, real or fake?

hmmmm. i'd say they were probably real....either hers originally; or, possibly from her mother or grandmother (or, even, her mother-in-laws....)    but i'd say::  real.  definately real.

(but hey, i could always be wrong..... ;) )

I'll bet you are correct.  The thought of Irina wearing fake pearls - well 'it jest ain't fittin'....I wish there was a way of finding out the truth about that Chaumet tiara - how it could posssibly be photographed amongst the discovered jewels in the Moika Palace and yet be photographed on Irina in Paris......There must have been a copy, it 's the only answer....

Irina and Felix do make a handsome couple in that photo, don't they?
I don't recall seeing any pictures of their daughter  - are there any in this section?

Oh thanks Lisa.  There is so much information now on this site that it can be hard to find things sometimes.  Plus, my memory isn't what it used to be and I forget where I have seen things (loss of memory, dementia to follow no doubt!)

Does anyone know if Irina's cousins (Nicholas II's daughters) ever meet Bebe?

I would imagine they did, taking into consideration Bebe's date of birth, but I haven't yet come across   correspondence indicating this. Anybody out there find something?

Oh I'm sorry - thanks Annie.  I think that she takes after Felix more than Irina, certainly as a mature woman.  The photo of her with her own daughter is lovely.....What an attractive woman she was.

In that first picture that brnbg posted I thought she looked ok but a little bit manish to me.
 :o "waits for the backlash for that manish comment. :o


Good to know Im not the only one who thinks so

She is sooo lovely!


I think she looks like Uma Thurman.  Uma could play her in a movie!
