Countess Dracula

Tallulah Bankhead described Mercedes thus, as the latter took to wearing black masculine trousers, a black tricorn hat and a black cape around New York.  She dressed the part even further by wearing her jet black hair slicked back with brilliantine, along with a chalk white face, thin red lips and deep set eyes. De Acosta often boasted "I can get any woman from any man."

Gender Confusion

Her mother had wanted a boy, and so referred to Mercedes as 'chico mio' and 'Rafael'.  Mercedes was treated like a boy and dressed like a boy, and claimed in her autobiography that she didn't realise she wasn't a boy until she was 7.  This gender confusion continued throughout her life, with both Dietrich and Garbo, as well as over lovers, calling her 'my boy', 'darling boy' and 'Rafael'.
