a monthly look at the faces
that have made history
Radziwill's sometimes rivalrous relationship with her sister, her sumptuous houses, and her tabloid-ready romances have long fascinated. But it's her enviable wardrobe and not-a-hair-out-of-place coiffeur that have served as inspiration to designers from Yves Saint Laurent to Marc Jacobs. Michael Kors once dedicated an entire collection to "the Lee Radziwill look." With Balmacaan coats and stovepipe velvet slacks, Kors conjured "what Lee would wear to walk her dogs in the sixties." Add furs, cashmere, and kitten heels, mix with simple jewelry and minimal makeup, and you've got the Radziwill recipe for era-spanning chic.
