Władziu Valentino Liberace. The very embodiment of The Fabulous. His virtuosity with the piano was noted and cultivated early in his life, but his opus of opulence is likely his most enduring legacy. Liberace was crowned as the highest-paid entertainer of his time — and he lived accordingly, dripping diamonds and decadence in his wake. His Fabulosity could spare no extravagance when it came to showmanship either: his contract with Las Vegas hotels stipulated he must out-do himself with each ensuing performance. Rest in pearls, Liberace.
