"Is Joan Collins still alive? I was at dear old Zazou de Madrazo Fortuny's villa last week, on that shadowy bit of Cap Ferrat, and Zazou said she had a small lampshade made from the trimmings of Joan Collins's neck. I thought she was joking but Zazou said no, the actress had donated it to the Surrealist Jumble Sale in aid of the roof of St Paul's Monte Carlo. They did quite well apparently and the roof is now in excellent condition. Must go next time in down there. Haven't been on my knees once this year."
