After the turbulent upheavals of the early twentieth century, Europe began to recover. In Paris, which lost a huge number of men in the First World War, there were many noble emigrants from revolutionary Russia. Rich Americans came there for fashion and were willing to spend a lot of money on it. Russian aristocrats became models for Parisian fashion houses. They showed their clothes not only in the Fashion Houses, but also at social events, becoming the faces of brands. Russian beauty, aristocratic education, charm and the ability to present themselves brought a huge income to French fashion houses.

She was the muse of the artist Saveliy Sorin and the famous Georgian poet Galaktion Tabidze. Princess Mary always, even in very old age, was surrounded by admirers.
