OK, I admit that I just wasn't all that interested in the Lady Gaga cover story but the photography by Nick Knight was stunning
and every other article in the September issue was stellar.
If you aren't a subscriber, go out and buy the magazine today. No really, it has everything you want in summer magazine reading
from a profile of the exquisite Jacqueline de Ribes, the last queen of Paris
Here's a photo of Countess de Ribes looking a-ma-zing
to a story on the messy family fight over the estate of socialite/designer/playboy/licensor extraordinaire, Oleg Cassini, who bagged all the babes from Gene Tierney to Grace Kelly to Anita Ekberg
yet kept his 30 year marriage to Marianne Nestor a secret.
Here's Oleg with his "Top Girl" first wife, Gene Tierney.
to an article on sleazy Kenneth Starr and how he bilked his society and entertainment clients out of millions. How did this man ever get his hands on Bunny Mellon's money? I just love this quote "When your business manager marries a stripper" says one ruefull client, "that's a tell." Ya think?
Here's a photo of the fraudulent financial advisor and his fourth wife, stripper Diane Passage.
There's lots of other great stuff too including the the international best dressed list which I previously posted about, the preppy handbook rebooted, and Fall Fashion must haves with suggestions from fashion bloggers including The Trad. (Admittedly I'm a little confused on why they didn't contact me for my opinion on jewelry trends...maybe next year. Sam, you know how to reach me)
Even the ads are awesome with fabulous Fall clothes.
Vanity Fair, job well done
