The Côte d’ Azur Set is the story of a group of people who lived, partyed, lit-sauté and politicked at the Château de l’ Horizon, near Cannes, during forty years since Coco Chanel made the south of French bronze fashionable in the twenties to the death of the playboy Prince Aly Khan in 1960.At the heart of it was the incredible Maxine Elliott, the daughter of a fisherman from Connecticut, who built the magnificent art deco Château and brought together the tastes of Noel Coward, the Aga Khan, the Windsors and two very naughty courtesans, Doris Castlerosse and Daisy Fellowes, who began to be dangerous distractions at Winston Churchill, as they began to be dangerous distractions.After the War, the story continues as the Castle changed hands and Prince Aly Khan used to entertain people in Hollywood, as well as the launch of his seduction and Rita Hayworth’s eventual wedding.Marie Lovell tells her story of high society, brio and relish, and this book has all the charm and fascination of her best-selling book The Mitford Girls and The Churchills.
