My Auntie Lulu

This week's NY Times Style Magazine got it right. In "ChiChi Devil" writer Christopher Petkanas profiles my Great-Aunt Louise DeVilmorin. On the 40th anniversary of her death her story is still quite amazing, her contributions still considerable. She wrote fiction, poetry, screenplays and (even memoirs for Coco Chanel). And talk about connected! Alaia and Lacroix worshipped her, Lanvin too, not to mention her many famous lovers. Though I have met my Parisian relatives, I never knew her. Merci Mr. Petkanas for this fabulous story!
