Douglas and Françoise, his wife, choose Clara and other influential women to star in his new book about women. We all went to his studio on a Saturday afternoon in Hollywood Hills in February. We were so excited about this day.
Clara was spoiled with professional make-up and hairdresser. Douglas's studio is super, and Clara felt like a queen being photographed by one of the best photographers in the world.
They also had lots of ice cream for the kids, an essential factor for Clara to keep motivated to work.
