20 Pics Of A Wonderfully WTF Party in 1972 [Pic]

There have been few dinners parties quite like it. Its December 12th 1972, the night of which Marie-Hlne de Rothschild held her famous Surrealist Ball at Ferrires. As you can probably guess by her surname, she was a member of the ultra-wealthy Rothschild banking family. To be invited as a guest, was the ultimate seal of approval from Parisian high-society.

In keeping with the theme, she sent out an invitation which was actually written backwards to read the card you had to hold it up to a mirror. The requirements for the evening where Black tie, long dresses & Surrealistic heads, nothing more, nothing less. She insisted the iconic chateau be floodlighted with sweeping amber lights, designed to create the illusion that the building was on fire. Inside she made sure the entire staircase was filled with servants and footmen dressed as cats all in various sleeping poses.

Guests were then forced to enter a hellish labyrinth maze where should you get lost, one of the cats would rescue you and whisk you away where youd be formally greeted by Marie-Hlne herself. She was wearing a huge giant head that was crying tears of diamonds.

Salvador Dali and Audrey Hepburn were in attendance this night, no doubt being bewitching and entertaining everyone. This is just an example of just one of her parties and she had many. But whatever the date, whomever attended, she was meticulous in planning every finite detail, making sure each gathering was an intriguing and clearly intoxicating blend of art, literature, haute couture and dance.

Well said agentsmith.

With nothing else to fill your day I guess meticulous party planning for other rich bores is as good as it gets.

I had a party just like that in high-school, instead we all just took LSD and there was really no preparation.
