At the beginning of her career around 1962-1963, Marisa Mell lived in Vienna (Austria), Biberstrasse 9, where you still had the old grand European style of living like in capitals London and Paris embodied by furs, diamonds, pearls, the chauffeur driven Rolls Royce, nights at the Opera or the Debutante Ball... on the other hand a new younger fashionable modern way of living was also emerging in those capitals embodied by jeans, rock and roll, pop music, mini skirts, the Mini Cooper, recreational drugs, sundrenched hollidays at the Côte d'Azur in France or hot Italian nights in Rome... This picture was a promotional photo financed by herself to send to movie producers and movie production companies showing her in the grand old style covered with a white fur, diamands and pearls. Two years later Marisa Mell would relocate to Rome. Once in that sunny country she would never dress this way again and choose the modern Italian way of living. Nevertheless this glamorous photo shows a very fine Marisa Mell all dressed up for a night at the Opera.
