Slim Keith, the fashionable Manhattan socialite, and the subject of Melanie Benjamin's newest novel, was a major tastemaker during the mid-20th century. A close friend of Babe Paley and Truman Capote, Lady Slim Keith lived a complicated but charmed life.
Her style is class, tailored and elegant. Often seen in a crisp jacket, or fabulous evening gowns, Slim Keith's timeless taste harkens back to Slim Aaron's photoshoots of the American jet set. One can't help but see the inspiration Slim's style has provided has provided for current designers.
Think about the illusion sleeves of her wedding dress. Can anyone say, Kate Middleton?
We are particularly enticed by slim's use of bold, statement jewelry. Her brooches, necklaces and gorgeous earrings were all part of the look.
