“When she rode along the boulevards in her carriage, the crowd turned and said her name with the excitement of a populace saluting its sovereign, while she, reclining in her airy attire, smiled gaily… Supple as an eel, her scanty dress seeming both artful and negligent, exquisitely elegant, she had the distinction of a pedigree cat. With the aristocratic haughtiness of vice she set her foot defiantly on Paris as its all-powerful mistress. She set the tone, and the great ladies imitated her.” (Emile Zola, Nana)
