remembering audrey

Everywhere I turn, people are abuzz about Vanity Fair’s beautiful May cover starring a doe-eyed Audrey Hepburn. The fanfare reminds me of the May 2003 issue of Town & Country, which also featured an interview with one of Ms. Hepburn’s sons and a forensic look at her elegant style. I quite enjoyed reviewing the piece again, and am especially fond of the bulleted “Did You Know” facts. I had forgotten that Audrey was discovered by Colette at Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, which is kind of fun to think about (…says the history nerd). Anywho, the entire article in question can be found here. I hope it’s enough to hold you over ‘til you can get your hands on the newest Vanity Fair : )


my stuff: sofia coppola

Vanity Fair always has the best features. I picked up the March issue today – which, by the way, has the most beautiful cover – and discovered that Sofia Coppola is the subject of this month’s “My Stuff.” I enjoyed it tremendously and thought you might, as well. Who would have thought that her favorite color is hot pink? 


from the desk of philip treacy

Someone once told me that you learn much more about a person by seeing their things than you do in conversation. This is why I love features - like Vanity Fair’s “My Desk” or House Beautiful’s “My Bed" - that give glimpses into the private lives of interesting people. I don’t know much about British milliner Philip Treacy, but from the look of his “My Desk” feature in the November ’11 issue of Vanity Fair, I can tell that we’d be the best of friends. Pink ink and ostrich feathers? Please and thank you. I hope that, one day, I have the opportunity to visit the Philip Treacy offices in person (ideally, for a hat fitting).


isabelle lucas for vanity fair

No more than five minutes after I submitted my previous post on J.Crew’s September catalog, I find these perfect beachy images of Isabelle Lucas posing for Vanity Fair. Now I want it to remain Summer for three more months! Can we stop for a moment to admire those scalloped shorts?! I die. Isabelle, you are a doll. How have I not heard of you before?
