Comedy Relief: Erte Ball at the Villa Escudero III, August 1993

As the over-the-top costumed guests of the Erte Ball were introduced one by one to the assemblage, it turned out that, apart from a few socialites, it was practically a chorus line of talented and audacious gay guys…

The Final Bow was taken by an aged American socialite who was dressed ala Greta Garbo or Marlene Dietrich in a pale green Paul Poiret-like dress…

When she appeared, a top investment banker pointed her out to his buddies and commented:  “Wow!!!  That’s some old fag up there!!!”

Harharhar!!!   😛   😛   😛

    Could that ole gal have been American doyenne Ca*lyn Man*ing, a BFF of Ado Escudero’s ?

    In the 50’s Ca*lyn was the SIGNATURE model of Salvacion Lim Higgins or as her House of Couture was called SLIM.

    Or could it have been big breezy gal, James Cooper who did Carol Channing doing ” Hello Dolly ” ?

    An old fag hag and an aging female impersonator ? Choose your WILDE ?
