Dutch actress Sylvia Kristel (best known for her role as Emmanuelle) passed away today. I’ve met her a couple of times, she recorded a beautiful Dutch Gainsbourg-cover with Rick de Leeuw for a project of mine. She was a fragile woman with a sad life, but she told great stories and was capable of captivating every one in the room. Rest in peace.

    Our elegant lady of 70s sexual refinement, and a sensual songstress, too.
