Mothers and Sons

According to the Daily Mail, the son of British poet Amanda Eliasch is taking the London social scene by storm – as a femulating singer. Charles Eliasch transforms into fabulous Evie Lake by night and has appeared as his flamboyant alter-ego at various cabaret nights.

Charles is Amanda’s eldest son by Swedish billionaire ex-husband Johan Eliasch, and his act is so convincing it has everyone fooled but his mother. That is Evie and his admiring mother in the photo above – note the family resemblance.

I wish I had a photo of my mother with me en femme. Mom was so pretty and I resemble her in many ways. We would make a stunning pair just like the mother and son in the photo above.

Thinking about all of the missed opportunities in my life saddens me.

Coffee, tea or me? During my May 6th fashion photoshoot, I also modeled the stewardess uniform that I have been assembling. I thought Trans World Airlines was the most appropriate airline for a girl like me, so I searched eBay for TWA accessories and obtained a TWA wing pin and TWA travel bag. I also obtained the generic stewardess cap via eBay.


  1. Stana, Thank you so much for posting this – it really strikes home. On Mother’s Day I posted a photo of me and my mom when I was a kid and one of my girlfriends commented “You look so much like your mother.” She always wanted a daughter … now I think she is smiling because she has one. I just wish we could have talked about this when she was alive. Yes, all of those missed opportunities….

    Evie and her mother – what a marvelous picture!

  2. You're pretty good at photoshop. You should be able to make that picture.

    I'm not very good, but I have a picture of both of my kids together at age 5, even though they're four years apart.

    1. You read my mind! I plan to go through my family photos today and find suitable candidates for photoshopping.

    AND another photo of mom, See what billions$$ can do...


  4. Dejar Stana, I was lucky to share the last 12 years with my mother ... She was a fabulous companion on my outings in high heels ...

  5. I never really thought there was any significant resemblance between me and my Mom... that was until I saw some candid photos of me while I was en femme. The photos were of a group of us at a function and while I was looking at the pictures my "Mom" just leaped off the page.

    I really don't know if she would have enjoyed meeting her "daughter" or not.
