Obsessed with Lee...



The Other Sister was the name of the first book I read about Caroline Lee Bouvier Canfield Radziwill Ross, Jackie's sister and the more beautiful of the two.  If one was obsessed with Jackie as I was for years, some of the interest had to spill over to the younger sister who was a Princess.  All the books and articles have them close as ever and thick as thieves growing up and staying close right up until the end.  

Lee compiled a book called Happy Times a few years ago for Assouline and it is chock full of amazing pictures from her eclectic life.  Like Jackie, she had exquisite taste in clothes and home decor and everything in between.

Sofia Coppola interviewed Lee recently..so fun to hear her actually speak! She talks about her childhood, Truman Capote and so much more. Check it out here... 

Just in time for Fashion Week, The New York Times published an article called The Real Lee Radziwill.  Read it here....

I'm obsessed with her cast off tiger sofa that's found a new home in her daughter-in-law's downtown digs. It's another Real Housewife of New York itself in my book. Btw, you got a mention in today's post for roping me into the needlepoint Christmas ornaments I'm now drowning in. Teasing as always, natch ;)

She is beautiful! I had no idea about Lee. I was obsessed with Jackie O years and years ago. I even have her Madame Alex. doll (which is my favorite). I think I'll check out the book, too!
