The Greek brunette Aliki Diplarakou (1912-2002) was 18 when she won in Paris the 1930 Miss Europe beauty pageant. In 1929 she had already become Miss Hellas. Diplarakou's family lived in Athens but originated from the Mani on the Peloponnese. After winning in Paris Diplarakou participated in the 1930 Miss Universe pageant in Rio de Janeiro as well. Aliki spoke various languages fluently, so she toured the States giving lectures on ancient and modern Greek culture. She hit the newspapers when she dressed in men's clothes and sneeked into the monk's sanctuary on Mount Athos, where women were strictly forbidden to enter. In 1932 Diplarakou married the French aviator and rich Industrial Paul-Louis Weiller. They had one son, Paul-Annick, who married princess Olimpia Torlonia. Their daughter became princess Sibylla of Luxembourg. In 1945 Diplarakou remarried Sir John Wriothesley Russell, descending from the 6th Duke of Bedford, and they had two children, Georgina and Alexander. Aliki's sister Cristina marrried Henri Claudel, a son of French writer Paul Claudel.
