The Thomas Crown Affair es una película llena de placeres sensuales. El atraco a un banco, la relación amorosa que florece entre Vicki Anderson y Thomas Crown (Fay Dunaway y Steve MacQueen) y el armario de lujo de estos dos personajes es una chucheria visual.
Prince Michael of Kent talks about Carl Fabergé's Colonnade Egg which was made for Tzar Nicholas II of Russia and is currently in the British Royal Collection.
The Colonnade Egg is made of Bowenite, four-colour gold, silver-gilt, platinum, guilloché enamel and rose diamonds. It is one of only four Faberge Easter Eggs to include a clock in the design.
The egg symbolizes a temple of love. A pair of platinum doves represent the love of Nicholas and Alexandra. Four silver-gilt cherubs sit around the base of the egg, each representing Nicholas and Alexandra's four daughters: Anastasia, Olga, Maria, and Tatiana. Alexei is represented by a silver-gilt cupid, which surmounts the egg.
