grande dame style for sale
Rosamond Bernier, who had a long career as the world’s most glamorous fine arts and high culture lecturer, knew how to dress to impress. When she stepped behind the podium at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to give her well-attended talks, she never looked less than fetching—so much so that she snagged a spot on the International Best-Dressed List. Now that Bernier is no longer imparting her wisdom to museumgoers, however, she’s decided that it’s time to auction off her working wardrobe on Yoox.com, starting on October 23. There’s a VIP preview of the sale tonight at the Four Seasons, but Style.com managed to get an advance look. One of our favorite outfits? This swishy Zandra Rhodes number from the early seventies.
