yesterday's muse # 24 - ivy nicholson
forgive me for being vague, but i wasn't able to find a great deal of information on Ivy, so i'll just share with you what i did find...
born Irene Nicholson in Queens, New York, Ivy started modeling at age 16. in the 1950s she graced the covers of Vogue, Elle and Harper's Bazaar, among others. as many of her contemporaries would do, Ivy sought out acting roles once the end of her twenties began to loom. somewhere in her search she found Andy Warhol, and was cast in minor roles in a number of his films.
i know that at some time in her life she married and divorced a Count (DePoleon), with whom she had a son Darius -consequently a Viscount- who plays in a band called Eurotrash, made up of other entitled Europeans ;) Ivy has three other children, Sean Bolger, a Los Angeles fashion photographer, and twins Penelope and Gunther Palmer, whose father John is also in showbiz. Penelope was a child actress and her twin brother a child model. Gunther is now a drummer and vocalist in a band called Stagefright.
