I think she's very elegant but I can't stand her writing.

The look on my face as I was reading was .

This chick has to have nude pics. of someone important at Vogue.

But I did get the Vogue where they did a spread on her wedding and her dress was stunning.


I thought Bergdorf Blondes was unbelievably bad ... I kept waiting for it to get better and it never did. She makes Candace Bushnell look like Albert Einstein.

Frankly, I have not read her books, but I agree with you that she lacks talent overall. I have read several articles for Vogue U.S., and these´s pathetic.

I created this forum because - despite everything, I recognize that she is a famous person in the world of fashion.

Plum is very ugly to me, she seems older than she really is (just to do their gruesome teeth of anyone less glamorous and a person who works in fashion, I think she could visit a dentist, "money is no problem for she). On the other hand she always wears a classic and elegant dresser way, but nothing special, and her hair is boring as well. You just nonsense: fashion week, designers parties ... but "What she really works?" She tries to be Candace Brushell or "Charlotte York" (Kristen Davis´s character in STHECITY). She married with a unknowed millionaire and tries to make believe she has the perfect life Is this true? Anyway this is not my problem.

Yet I like to see pictures of her if any one is interesting.

Thanks for share,
Keep analizing her looks!
Best wishes,
sensibility

i think her books are hilarious. i dont think you're supposed to like the world shes writing about - the whole book is sorta tongue-in-cheek

Either way i like her style - she also kinda reminds me of an older, more elegant mischa barton

Thanks Qui for your last photo, she looks very nice.

Does anybody know what is she doing now? Is she still working for Vogue? Does anybody has read any recent article?

Does she work in other place?

Thanks in advance,

Lily.

I kind of love that she named her daughter Ursula, that's such an unusually cool name.

^ Listing another tFS thread is not a proper source, please post the correct one or that picture will have to be removed. Thanks.
