THE AUTHOR... Carole Radziwill
As those of you who read this blog already know, I am significantly better at applying lipstick and taking Polaroids than writing. So rather than ramble on about all of Carole Radziwill's impressive accomplishments, I suggest you click here to read about her fascinating life. And it is a life worth reading about! Here are a few notable facts about Carole: three Emmys, a New York Times Bestseller, a GLADD award, a Robert F. Kennedy Humanitarian award, she spent 6 weeks embedded with the 101st Airborne Division during the 2003 war in Afghanistan, and she has a new novel, The Widow's Guide to Sex & Dating, coming out in summer 2012. To top it off, Carole is an actual princess and she is on the new season of The Real Housewives of New York.
I was lucky enough to meet Carole during a Studio CHG shoot on location at Chateau Marmont. The inspiration for the look was Stepford Wives meets Valley of the Dolls, a total contrast to Carole's modern style. It was a blast collaborating with the Studio CHG team… stay tuned for more projects! Oh and check out their great blog, The Violet Files.
* Note: Thanks to Luke Chamberlain for the great hair!
