Why We Love This

Elsie de Wolfe: A Life in the High Style by Jane S. Smith. New York: Atheneum, 1982. First printing. This has become a highly sought-after biography of one of the 20th century's most compelling hostesses, who virtually invented the concept of interior decoration in America. Lady Mendl, as she later became, presided over the social worlds of New York in the 1900s, Paris in the '20s and wartime Hollywood. She numbered legions of celebrity clients and followers from every level of society.
