He suddenly recollects - and chortles at the recollection - a day in his own shop when Vivien suddenly came face to face with another striking beauty. ‘My God, what a beauty!” said this goddess to little Vivien. And the latter, almost in the same breath, said to the goddess: “But you’re so beautiful - look at your body” This mutual admiration went on for several minutes on end, both ladies positively gleeful in their pleasure.
‘A most majectic vision, and harmonious charmingly,’ as Ferdinand in The Tempest said of the encounter and duet between Juno and Ceres. The couturier, just a shade less Shakespeareanly, said that the two ladies on this occassion ‘crooned like two mutually infatuated ring-doves’. The second lady - I should have made it clear - was Miss Ava Gardner.
