My fugitive dad made me get a nose job

Margo Perin has spent years unravelling her mysterious childhood and her family's secrets

As a child Margo Perin remembers strangers in the living room and having a new surname and address every few years. Unsure of what her father really did for a living, her childhood was shrouded in mystery. It wouldn't be until she was much older that she would come to understand her family's secrets, including why her father forced her to change her appearance.

centuries-old tradition.

Art by Leonardo Di Vinci and the dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in the iconic film 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' are just some of the things that have been sold at Christie's auction house in London. Bidders put down hundreds of thousands of pounds for all sorts, including unusual handbags. Outlook's Katy Davis went to their London office to meet auctioneer and handbag aficionado Rachel Koffsky who can tell if a designer handbag is genuine just by it's smell.
