yesterday's muse #13 - fiona campbell-walter




unfortunately, the only information i could find on New Zealand born British fashion model Fiona Campbell-Walter was from sites dedicated to the men with whom she covorted (gotta love patriarchy :) . it seems she was the third of five wives to billionaire Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza De Kaszon, one of the richest men in Europe. the couple married in 1956 and divorced in 1965, having produced two children, son Lorne and daughter Francesca.
Fiona went on to have a highly publicized relationship with Greek shipping heir Alexander Onassis, only son of Aristotle Onassis. the two were hoping to marry when 25 year old Alexander died in a plane crash in 1973.
