Society Girl of the Week: Margot Tenenbaum

"Ace, Deuce, Backhand, Back Swing"!

In my book, Tennis is by far the most stylish sport! The sport that defines preppy, that brings to mind Lacoste alligators, Adidas sweatbands and one indelible woman.

This woman twisted and darkened the often upbeat, preppy style. She took something and ran with it, and in the process defined a new uniform of savoir-faire. Her tennis dress, vintage slip and dainty barrette are always contrasted by the melancholy of her smoky eye-liner, heavy fur coat and blunt hair cut.

The sadness of her unrequited love is captured in her iconic look. She is our Society Girl of the Week...

Margot Tenenbaum





Thanks to Fiona Grace for suggesting our pick this week!
