Today the NY Times website has a rare and wonderful treat --a rare interview with Lee Radziwill, the equally stylish younger sister of Jackie Kennedy Onassis. The interview includes photos of Lee's chic Paris apartment. Also included are interviews with Lee's friends, including Sofia Coppola. And there's even a twelve minutevideo of Lee filmed by Sofia Coppola in Lee's New York City apartment. You'll be fascinated by Lee's comments and surprised by her husky voice. Enjoy!

Wow! Interesting interview! Radziwill does not hold back--very surprised with her bluntness and distain for some family members, like her mother! Thanks for sharing. And I do like Coppola's style. I have a few pics of her for inspiration wardrobing.

Thanks for posting -- I wouldn't have looked at this otherwise. I have mixed feelings about her, with all the name dropping and oh-so-exquisite taste, but she does seem to have made good use of her privileges. Interesting that both she and her sister became such icons of -- I don't want to say "tastefulness," exactly, but as sort of ideal women when their mother was apparently so cold and difficult. They were both interesting but not warm, at least in their public personas.
(But wow, is she skinny or what!)
Oh, meant to add: I love "Grey Gardens." I can't quite articulate why, though.
