All That Glitters is not always Oscar gold but when it comes to Greta Garbo the Midas Touch is in full effect.  Our Vintage Coty Gold Metal Envelope Compact with mirror is just what Garbo needed to gaze at the face that was second to none. Nominated four times for an Academy Award Garbo was so beloved by her peers and critics that she eventually got her Oscar, when she was awarded an Honorary Academy Award in 1954. Her performances were visually stunning thanks to her perfect face – considered one of the most beautiful women to ever live Garbo retired at the tender age of 36 and became reclusive and went to great lengths to shun the public.  It is rumored that she did not want anyone to see her age and wanted to only be remembered for the remarkable beauty she once was.  Since she was ranked 5th on the list of greatest female stars of all time Garbo’ s face and name will eternally be synonymous with Hollywood Royalty and Icon of Beauty.
