Untouched by the knife

I had hoped Prix D'Amour, the former grand but tasteless home of Rose Porteous, would be pointed out to us as we cruised down the Swan River in Perth, but alas(?) the house has been demolished and apartments now occupy the elite Mosman Park site.


Apparently Rose is moving to Spain. Well, with a Philippine background, she probably speaks Spanish. I thoroughly approve that Rose has never had any facial surgery. It is true. She said so. She must for some reason have a prematurely aged scraggy neck. Her hair colour is probably natural too.

  1. Well there you go... I didn't know that the mansion had been bulldozed.

    1. CM, nor did I until I checked. It was some time ago.

  2. The latest for scraggy faces is to put fillers in instead of stretching the skin over the bones giving that feline look to the eyes. Always look at the hands, a dead give-away for age.

    1. Jah Teh, I guess fillers are not permanent and have to be redone. Yes, the hands are the sure give away, unless gloves are worn and few wear gloves nowadays.

  3. Drat you Jah Teh. If asked I would say I am not vain (no reason to be so) but I read your comment and immediately looked at my hands.
    I am too well covered/plump/fat to have chicken neck though. And my fillers appear permanent.
    And of course that hair colour is natural...

    1. My hands are badly wrinkled, with thin skin and little to no fat under it; they've worked hard all their lives and show every minute of it.

    2. EC, thin older women generally don't look so attractive.

      River, rather like mine. I can't say my hands have worked hard, but they are aged.

    1. No Gosia, she does not look nice. She looks false and fake.

  5. Untouched by knife?? In her dreams maybe!
    I often wonder why so many women go to all that trouble, yet don't get their necks done too. There must be some way of lifting and tightening that section.

    1. River, it seems necks are really hard. Note how many older women after facial surgery wear scarves.

  6. Pigs might fly Andrew! of course Rose has had a face lift, and of course her hair is coloured as you are kidding us with your words! :)
    Never cared for the lady? myself and I also didn't know there was no house anymore.

    1. Margaret, I don't know that anyone cares for poor old Rose, but she certainly was a larger than life figure for quite a time.

  7. Haha! Poor old Rose.. wonder exactly how old she is? I guess I could Google but eh! do I really want to know that much :)
    P.s. will be looking for more information on future mural shots 😃

    1. Grace, I just had to. She is 67 according to all sources and I frankly don't believe that. It does add to a photo of a mural if you can say something about whose work it is.

  8. She looks good to me. I have bad eyes. Everyone looks just fine to me.

    1. Now Strayer, I am sure you don't like falseness or fakeness and she is as good as they come at that.

    2. She does look a bit stretched in the face.

  9. Is that her in the photograph? She looks unrecognisable from the woman I remember but then again my memory is becoming pretty faulty.

    1. It is indeed, Victor. It is a still from a recent 'current affairs' show.

  10. A friend from Perth, also a friend of Rose's husband (make of that what you will) tells me the demolition was quite an event.
