Extravagance only! Give us glamour, give us Marge Simpson, tell me my fortune at a Truman Capote party. Sophia has entered twice, is it fair? Is she cheating? We’ll allow it, she came to play. And the winner is? Via: David Bailey, Fault Magazine, Richard Avedon & Adeline Style

Style With Lee Radziwill
“I can’t think of any woman more feminine than Lee Radziwill, not even Audrey Hepburn.” Truman Capote said of the socialite. The brilliant, chic baby sister of Jackie-O; despite their competitive relationship Lee styled her sister on numerous occasions.
The pisces Princess, who got her last name after marrying Polish Prince Stanislaw Albrecht Radziwill, had a style that was minimal, yet embellished. A plain white gown covered by an ornamental jacket, a red dress made sophisticated by the placement of straps across her chest, closed with a decorative brooch. She was balanced glamour, refined, chic and always memorable.
Even black leather jackets were stand outs one: a fur color and a cinched waist, the other given depth with a snakeskin texture. They just don’t make them like they use to. Her outfits are put together so consciously it radiates her intelligence. What does your style say about you?
Supermodel 101: Penelope Tree
The coolest of the Swinging Sixties It girls by far. “Hot, hot, hot. Smart, smart, smart.” This is how John Lennon described the effortlessly cool, aloof Penelope Tree. Once the girlfriend of photographer David Bailey, she got her start after being photographed at one of Truman Capote’s infamous soirées. Absolutely striking, with large, round, doe eyes and chiseled rosy cheeks, there is no face like hers. When I first saw her I was enthralled by how odd looking she was, like a tribal, sage alien from a jungle on some far away planet. A fucking icon. Which Tree is your favorite?
