What a fashionable way to go right? At 95 years old, Zelda collasped when the first looks came down the runway. She was carried out and brought to the hospital and was pronounced dead of natural causes. Ruth Finley, publisher of The Fashion Calendar, told the New York Times, “She flopped over in my lap. The show was just starting. I thought she fainted.”
I would not mind collapsing and dying front row at a Chanel show at 95 years old. Lived a full fashionable life and made a grand exit that everyone in the fashion industry will remember. Rest in peace Madame, may you still have a fashionable life in heaven with the fashion icons like Coco Chanel, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen.
