I always felt Lee was the more inspiring of her and her sister Jackie, she has that bohemian elegance that is so fab!

Elegance personified. (Not to mention dignity.) Such a contrast to so much celebrity trashiness!!! (Although trash can be good for a laugh.)

Oh, the Bouvier sisters! There is no one like them…
March 25, 2011 at 4:21 pm
Beautiful!And I'm intrigued by her earring – intricate yet sturdy.
March 25, 2011 at 4:24 pm
She's gorgeaous! I wish I would look that good when I get at her age!
March 25, 2011 at 4:26 pm
She is gorgeous!You are doing such a great thing, it makes me so happy to hear others loving it too!
I have worked in the rag trade as a designer for years, am now studying fine art at Parsons, and I have always spent so much time thinking about what beauty really IS. The social constructs that exist surrounding beauty make it all so interesting.
Food for thought.
I am not sure I have figured it out yet, but one thing I know for sure…living with a little beauty everyday is what makes living inspired.
The scent of violets, a strain of music that makes your heart weep and your jaw tighten, a touch of silk that is like the flank of a fawn, or the sight of a hopelessly beautiful jawline, shoulder or cheekbone…
something ethereal and elusive about beingcompletely present in what we do…magic.
I SO love what you do!
Thanks for being so inspiring!

March 25, 2011 at 4:54 pm
Glamorous!!!! Such a beauty
she looks like Costanza Pascolato's american cousin…
she's a beautiful woman, the earrings are gorgeous, as well as the elegant zebra/tiger print…
March 25, 2011 at 4:55 pm
She's 78. Oh, the genes (hardly due to lifestyle? Though you never know).
Elegant and vibrant.
March 25, 2011 at 4:56 pm
Ms. Raziwell is way older than my mom but if my mom ever decides to get into a funk about aging, I'm going to show her this picture and say something like "she still takes time to care about how she looks", or she looks great, why don't you show her what REALLY looks great." Arsenal, just in case.
March 25, 2011 at 5:02 pm
The word "icon" is overused and has lost its bite. However, Lee Radziwill is a true icon.
I love this woman! Eternally chic.
March 25, 2011 at 5:08 pm
This woman is more elegant than her sister! Great woman
March 25, 2011 at 5:09 pm
Just like her sister Jackei, Lee proves that "Style is eternal"
March 25, 2011 at 5:10 pm
Wow, this shot could've easily been taken fifty years ago, it's very glamourous. When I see all the thongs sticking out of low-cut jeans (still!) I wonder where the heavens is this world going and why don't young women draw inspiration from impeccably dressed people like Lee more.
March 25, 2011 at 5:14 pm
Except for the mouth, she looks like my mother, who is of that era and used to wear a French twist and glamourous black and white clothing.
March 25, 2011 at 5:15 pm
March 25, 2011 at 5:19 pm
Wow! Such an amazing woman! I had the chance to see her at the Paris Fashion Week before the Valentino show and she looked stunning. She was very nice with the photographers, she was smiling and she even exchanged a few words with them. Very stylish!
March 25, 2011 at 5:35 pm
I once walked past her on an empty Park Avenue .. white v-neck tee, jeans, black cashmere sweater around her shoulders … I have never seen anyone look so amazingly chic in something so simple in my whole life. She is phenomenal.

March 25, 2011 at 6:44 pm
Beautiful photo. The last time I saw pictures of her was in a Vogue profile a few years ago. In it she looked lovely, but suspciously smooth and soft-focus. She's much more impressive in this picture, without styling, posing, and photoshopping.

She is so chic, and fabulous. My Heart Blogged
Supremely elegant, with a little bit of sass in the form of the stylish zebra pattern in the coat.
It's so nice to see that Lee Radziwill seems to understand that that trying to look half one's age is dehumanizing and in the end, not in line with the classical ideal of beauty.
March 25, 2011 at 9:30 pm

Gorgeous! So elegant!
March 26, 2011 at 4:52 am
I guess her ancestors were the graet polish family- Radziwiłł, the y were always close to the monarch. One can surely tell there is something royal in Lee Radziwill…
March 26, 2011 at 5:14 am
The most elegant woman there for sure…
March 26, 2011 at 5:32 am
Stunning. She looks as interesting as her story would be to tell. Iconic glamour.
March 26, 2011 at 8:01 am
According to photographer Peter Beard, she was the best sex of any he'd ever had in a very, um, active life with some very famous, even iconic beauties (Cheryl Tiegs, Iman, etc…).

Well, no, the info was not really "necessary", but doesn't it add another dimension to the animal print she's wearing?

March 28, 2011 at 9:45 pm
My God Scott!
Just a few short years ago you started this whole style sensation online. and now, there's lovely Garance, world trAVEL, front row,enormous influence, well deserved recognition. oh the stories you could tell!iT JUST doesn't get any better than Lee Radizwell up close and candid on her Paris home turf. Were you just a tad nervous, shaky?
ps..enjoyed the earlier comment about Peter Beard's 'vignette' of Ms. Radziwell.
March 28, 2011 at 10:18 pm

March 29, 2011 at 8:06 pm
Some of your subjects certainly provide the fashion equivalent to the notion that many great interior designers adhere to: "Don't decorate, curate."
March 29, 2011 at 8:08 pm
I agree with Docta Slick.
March 29, 2011 at 11:11 pm
this is the kind of woman that makes me feel better about getting older.
March 30, 2011 at 12:16 am
I sat right next to Lee at a restaurant on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris a few years ago, and I must say she looked simply stellar in person..

March 30, 2011 at 11:57 pm
Thanks for showing your pictures of women of ALL ages, from kids through to mature. It gives us a perspective on what our lives (and looks) can become, or already are. There's no need to worry about getting older when I see a picture like this – of a woman who obviously nurtures, enjoys and creates her own style to perfection. That's about following your own instincts, and not someone elses. Bravo. I love it. Thanks again for inspiration. Ciao, L. x x

April 21, 2011 at 10:36 pm
Thank you for this post. Would you include more older women please. I see so many older men all the time. I love your blog and would love to see more of this mature female perspective. There are so many fashionable older women all in and about the fashion capitals, just like there are male. Think that is why you got so many comments on this. Yes, I know she is Jackie's sister but still….
Thank You in Advance.
April 26, 2011 at 7:07 am

June 17, 2011 at 12:04 am
so poilised and elegant!
July 23, 2011 at 5:44 pm
Still amazing after all these years. Looking at her I can not forget her sister Jackie, patrician style icon, what a tragic loss.
September 25, 2011 at 12:43 am
She is just such a force to be reckoned with..makes me wish we could have seen Jackie at that age :(
March 3, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Superb shot, Scot!
But most of all, no botox!!!!! Just the ageing signs gloriously exposed with elegance and unshielded. A good lesson for women who want to hide their age.
September 19, 2014 at 5:33 am
a classic icon ! So few left !
Way more sassy than Jackie – probably the life of the party
