& Ladies of the Club : the 3 Graces

“The two greatest mannequins of the century were Gertrude Stein and Edith Sitwell- unquestionably. You just couldn't take a bad picture of those two old girls.” DV


  1. And you're saying that's Gertrude Stein sitting next to Cole Porter?

    I don't think so.

  2. no, I haven't a clue as to what you are talking about , but thanks for dropping in. hallucinating?

  3. anon, and You know all those- hum? "lady novelists" look alike. cole porter was fetching too. little augury

  4. Perhaps there was a glitch with your link: There was previously a picture of Elsa Maxwell with Cole Porter at some smoke filled nightclub.

    All's well that ends well.

  5. Anon, I confess, I was dual posting a little elsa- a little gertrude- a little bit here of both, and I dropped one of the gals in the wrong box. pgt

  6. Too funny! I mean the comments.

  7. Dear LA, this turned out to be a more amusing post than you must have suspected when writing it. The exchange with your "Anon" reader was hysterical. Reggie

  8. i have never seen this photo of mrs. vreeland,
    and i've seen a good deal of her's.
    she's in nothing really outre,
    but it captures her vitality so well.

    nor do i believe,
    i've seen the edith sitwell one either.

  9. Diana, Edith Sitwell, an old girl ?
