As Seen In: Lee Radziwell wearing Halston, c. 1976

I just heard that Lee Radziwell, younger sister of Jacqueline Kennedy, passed away two days ago. Radziwill (1933 – 2019) was known for her impeccable style and was even entered into the Best Dressed Hall of Fame in 1994. While I was reading up on her I rediscovered this photograph of her in 1976 wearing the identical hammered satin dress by Halston that we have in the FHM collection.

  1. Wow. I did not know she passed away so recently. And that you have this dress!

    I just finished reading a book about the Bouvier sisters – which was fascinating.

    And now this morning I just learned Karl Lagerfeld is gone…I am looking forward to you posting about this.

    Thanks for posting, Jonathan.

      I just posted about Lagerfeld… not sure what to say as there are so may tributes to him online.
