Sometime in the early ’50s, Hilary Knight’s drawings of naughty little girls for Mademoiselle magazine led to a meeting with author Kay Thompson (then a top nightclub performer)--and, of course, to the perpetually adored Eloise, the precocious Plaza dweller who in many ways is Knight’s alter ego. “Eloise will be celebrating her 60th birthday in 2015--not bad for a six-year-old,” says Knight. We’re honored to offer these personal pieces from Knight, who remains as stylish, outspoken, and original as the legendary little girl he brought to life.
