The German journalist who had photographed my mother in the 50's and written about her in his newspaper (before it was translated and published by Taraghi) had been attracted by her opera-singing talent which was unusual for an Iranian woman back then.
He also mentioned in his article that she was
beautiful and well-dressed which were really besides the point. So,
the intent was to praise her artistic (singing) talent, but unfortunately
Taraghi preferred to ignore the singing and stuck to her good
taste in clothes while translating the German article. -- Taraneh
