Retro Snap: Guess This Model’s Weird Hobby

Dovima was considered one of the great aristocratic beauties of her generation. She’s probably best remembered for this Richard Avedon pictures “Dovima with Elephants” (1955). She also had a weird hobby! Guess what it was…

… it was collecting comic books. Which isn’t that weird, but is absurdly charming! She hauled a trunk of them with her across Africa.
