In an age where brand names count as currency, the ones she patronised still radiate the lustre that she lent to them: Chanel, Cartier, Dior, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton.

Mrs. Simpson by Cecil Beaton,1934. The biographer James Pope-Hennessy, who met her in 1958, commented in his journal that Wallis was ‘one of the very oddest women I have ever seen’.   ‘She is, to look at, phenomenal,’ he added. ‘She is flat and angular and could have been designed for a medieval playing card. I should be tempted to classify her as an American woman par excellence were it not for the suspicion that she is not a woman at all.’
