This Spanish socialite and fashion model has – alongside Coco Chanel, Carolina Herrera, Diana, The Princess of Wales, Baroness Thatcher and Anna Wintour – been a member of the International Best Dressed List since 1984. Twice married Nati Abascal’s career has encompassed working for Oscar de la Renta, posing naked for Playboy and a short role in Woody Allen’s Bananas and of her, Olivia Palmero has commented: “[She] has always epitomised refinement, sophistication and feminine Spanish style… Nati Abascal proves that style and elegance is ageless”.
Surprisingly I’ve never heard of her so please feature more like her. What an amazing look she still has. A beauty.
An amazing life and the mother of two stunning sons. I hugely admire Nati.
She has always been one of my icons (and her son’s too!)
I came late to Nati Abascal y Romero-Toro….mea culpa!
She’s a cracker 🙂
To catch a thief, Monte Carlo revisited. Old Hitchcock would have been besotted……… Anna Wintour is still a hideous old tart.
I was fascinated to read this about her….what a courageous ‘cutting edge’ lady. She has become my icon too.
I often, need Alka Seltzer when I have over indulged at my local chippie
I supposed Dali’s stabbing stuff was to demonstrate heartburn and flatulence.
“In 1974 she made a ‘commercial/happening’ for Alka-Seltzer with Salvador Dalí which was seen as “too aggressive” by certain viewers. Dalí was shown pretending to stab Naty with some paint brushes, at the same time as he painted her body. The commercial was not particularly successful and was taken back from public view quite quickly.”
