As I was flying down the 134 today, on my way home from an afternoon spent seated blissfully beside my brilliant writing partner, a most interesting truth unexpectedly emerged from the cloudy sky above me and slowly bored its way into the depths of my brown bobbed skull…and that truth is this:
The women that I consider to be the CHICEST women who’ve ever lived didn’t dress to impress men. In fact, what men thought or wanted didn’t play into the equation AT ALL.
No, the CHICEST fucking women in the world dress to impress OTHER WOMEN.
Okay, and GAY MEN.
As for me, I am guided, emboldened, and inspired by the FIERCE, MAGNIFICENT, VISIONARY Mrs. Vreeland — through whose bio doc I BELLY WEPT from beginning to end.
I am now going to share with you one of the most significant lessons I have learned in my life…and it came straight from the staunch, stylish, handsome lips of DV herself. Changed my life, it did.
