Swans in Schon: Lee Radziwill and Marella Agnelli

"If they were both in Tiffany's window, Marella would be more expensive."
Truman Capote musing on Babe Paley versus Marella Agnelli

In 1966 Truman Capote threw the party to end all parties: his famed Black and White ball.  

It is often invoked as a source of inspiration for new parties here and there but it can never be repeated because those days of impossibly glamorous people, glamorously dressed are just simply gone.

Who, What, Wear on The Swans at Truman Capote's black and white ball. 1966.
