Alma Mahler

Who she is: During the early 20th century, Alma Maria Mahler Gropius Werfel was an Austrian socialite, muse, and composer who married and had affairs with prominent men in society.

Why she's scandalous: At 17, Alma had a fling with famous painter Gustav Klimt, who was 35 at the time. While she had various affairs over the years, her most notable was with painter and playwright Oskar Kokoschka. After she refused to marry him, he commissioned a life-sized sex doll in her likeness!
