Daisy Fellows Wearing Cartier’s ‘Tutti Frutti’ Necklace by Cecil Beaton (1936)

Daisy Fellowes (née Marguerite Séverine Philippine Decazes de Glücksberg; 1890 – 1962) was a prominent French socialite, acclaimed beauty, minor novelist and poet, Paris Editor of American Harper’s Bazaar, fashion icon, and an heiress to the Singer sewing machine fortune.

She was known as one of the most daring fashion plates of the 20th century, arguably the most important patron of the surrealist couturier Elsa Schiaparelli. She was also a friend of the jeweller Suzanne Belperron, and she was a longtime customer of jeweller Cartier.
