Sophia Hesketh and Alexia Niedzielski at an opening of Francois Penault’s personal art collection at the Center of Contemporary Culture in Moscow (otherwise known as The Garage) in Moscow on April 8th, 2009. Let’s just say the security personnel weren’t too pleased with the artistic interaction in this image.

I’ve just came back from Paris fashion week, and downloading my pictures after a week of fashion shows and parties is always like therapy. The pictures dig out the memories that were lost in the frenzy. In this season’s Paris diary, look for cameos from Karl Lagerfeld, Terry Richardson, Riccardo Tisci, Jared Leto, Mr. Valentino, Dree Hemingway, Mario Testino, Bill Cunningham, Rachel Zoe, my St. Louis sister Karlie Kloss and more!

For the release of my book, Very Classy, Harper’s Bazaar asked me to cast a group of five women in their Fabulous at Every Age portfolio. So, who were my nominations? The actress and Lancome spokesperson Emma Watson, the stylish psychiatrist Samantha Boardman, the model and knitwear designer Claudia Schiffer, the multi-tasking artist Lisa Eisner and the queen of Texas society Lynn Wyatt. Watch this video where I describe why I like I suggested them, and then buy the book! HERE
The sun peeking between the clouds at the Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, on August 12th, 2010. I grew up spending family vacations on the Lake of the Ozarks. It’s a simple place (and by simple I mean the dress code consists of worn-in Tshirts and decomposing denim), and one of my favorite places in the whole world.
“A lady knows the following: her bread plate is on the left and her drinking glasses are on the right.”
