Babe Paley. 1. Fashion Editor at Vogue in the '40's 2. Appeared in America's Best Dressed List in 1945 followed by 13 more times. 3. Married Mortimer, oil heir, then Paley, founder of CBS.
4. It's safe to say the woman had good taste.
"Babe Paley only had one fault; she was perfect; otherwise, she was perfect." ~Truman Capote, writer, Breakfast at Tiffany's

I am glad you posted this! This just reminded me of the Edith Head book I wanted to get so bad! She too was fabulous in fashion!! She wasn't very pretty herself though. I bet you'd love her book!
