Zsa Zsa Gabor began her stage career in Vienna and was crowned Miss Hungary in 1936. She emigrated from Hungary to the United States in 1941. Becoming a sought-after actress with “European flair and style”, she was considered to have a personality that “exuded charm and grace”.
Outside her acting career, Gabor was known for her extravagant Hollywood lifestyle, her glamorous personality, and her nine marriages. She once stated, “Men have always liked me and I have always liked men. But I like a mannish man, a man who knows how to talk to and treat a woman—not just a man with muscles.”
As a celebrity who loved to be in the spotlight, Gabor was notoriously glamorous, often spotted in lush furs, sparkling diamonds and perfect blonde coif. She famously resided in a Los Angeles manse, which was once owned by Elvis Presley, and contained a magnificent closet.
According to The New York Times, it measured “30 feet long, 12 feet deep and 14 feet high” and housed nearly 5,000 garments, including plenty of black tie dresses, off-the-shoulder gowns and a lot of diamonds.
These gorgeous pics of Zsa Zsa Gabor were taken by photographer Wallace Seawell while she was in her closet in 1974.
