"And you keep it just for fun, for a laugh, ha ha ha"

If anyone cared enough to try and unravel the lyrics of Peter Sarstedt's haunting classic Where Do You Go To My Lovely? .... they might hit upon a reference to "Zizi Jeanmaire":

You talk like Marlene Dietrich
And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire
Your clothes are all made by Balmain
And there's diamonds and pearls in your hair

Who? I hear you ask.

Well, now, for your delectation - here is the lady herself. Good job she's not allergic to feathers!
