India Hicks..Effortless Elegance

India Hicks...she has been everywhere this last week commenting on the Royal Wedding festivities. As one of Princess Diana's bridesmaids thirty years ago, she certainly has the pedigree to be a commentator..for ABC, for Oprah and well..for anyone. She has amazing personal style and has been written up in many magazines..lots of focus on her beautiful home in the Bahamas. Her books are extremely popular as well.



Around 2000 while I was working at Tiffany & Co., she walked in our store and I immediately recognized her. She bought something and handed me a peculiar clear blue American Express card, something I hadn't seen before and there it was INDIA HICKS, just another confirmation of my crazy pop culture knowledge. Of course, no one I was working with at the time had ever heard of her and probably thought I was making it all up..one of Princess Diana's bridesmaids????

This month's beautiful issue of Veranda arrived yesterday with the subtitle of Effortless Elegance. I couldn't get enough of all the articles, and very timely..there was on on India. The pictures speak for themselves.











The rest of the issue is full of fabulous homes..I was drooling over every page...








how amazing is this bedroom???












Love this outside space..

Oh I loved her coverage and always enjoy reading about her Harbour Island home.

I really admire India's style and grace, but she also has a refreshing quality of remaining "unimpressed" with herself which makes her all the more endearing. She is one of the few truly classy celebs these days....

Yes, India exudes cool, chic-ness (if that were a word), doesn't she?She's certainly living the life - it was fun to see her doing commentary for the royal wedding.
