 "You'll never make it on your face, so you'd better be interesting.", that's what Albert Schlesinger said to his daughter, the New York socialite Nan Kempner.Looking over her pictures, it's really hard to agree with him, since she looked stunning in my opinion.Tall,blonde, thin and with a great sense of style.What's not to like?
Luckily, the one person in the entire world whose opinion really mattered was Diana Vreeland,the former editor of Vogue, who once said: "There are no chic women in America. The one exception is Nan Kempner."
