Lee Bouvier Radziwill - Princess, Socialite & Style Icon

Lee Radziwill is a fascinating woman. As the younger sister of Jackie Kennedy, a prominent socialite, royal princess and former actress Radziwill gained exposure in the 60s and 70s for her personal sense of style and the stunning interior spaces of her homes.  Her inspiring Parisian apartment where she lives part-time is ultra-feminine with elegant French furnishings, plenty of pink patterns, chinoiserie florals and gilded bronze accents. 

In 2009, Elle Decor featured both her flat in Paris and Upper East Side apartment in NYC; each filled with a unique mix of books, antiques, and treasures from her travels.

My Research into this inimitable woman has revealed her incredible style is swathed in glamour from the past. I have no doubt, it is for this reason I am so drawn to these beautiful images. 

Lee Radziwill loves Statement Earrings.

She decorates in a Chinoiserie style using Blue & White Ginger Jars.

She co-ordinates her fashion accessories.

She loves wallpaper and dresses her kids in Classic Children's Clothes. 

In fact, Lee Bouvier Radziwill and LCA have so much in common . . . . minus the European princess part!
