Holy Sh*t : Princess Gloria Von Thurn Und Taxis

Holy Sh*t : Princess Gloria Von Thurn Und Taxis

Filed under: 
On Our Radar

Ladies and Gentlemen behold the greatest style icon ever covered in Holy Sh*t history.

Princess Gloria Von Thurn Und Taxis is a businesswoman who married into the princely house of Thurn und Taxis, a noble German family known for owning breweries and building castles in the 16th century.

Princess Gloria, who's name is actually Mariae Gloria Ferdinanda Joachima Josephine Wilhelmine Huberta Countess von Schönburg-Glauchau, is considered as one of history's most famous "badly behaving princesses." Her ridiculously lavish parties (one of which featured a huge cake covered in 60 marzipan penises) were attended by a bizarre array of people, like Mick Jagger and Adnan Khashoggi, a famous Saudi arms dealer.

The only thing more outrageous than the parties was her wardrobe, and one famous story recalls her dressing as Marie Antoinette and descending into the party on a gilded cloud in reference to the opera Don Giovanni. Her style is what I can only describe as "all the moms in Edward Scissorhands or The Grinch."
