Some of her clothes are inappropriate. I don't like to see OLD women wearing bare, sleevelss tops. It's just really unattractive.

i JUST finished reading the vanity fair story on her. . . . in the same issue with KK, Carmen and Natalia on the cover.

i am in love with this woman. she's so unapologetic and self-defacing. very VERY stylish and fun. really one of the best profiles i've read in a while as well. its so strange to hear of her lifestyle though. . . its soooo different from anything that i've ever experienced before. i imagine it must be very exciting to be a "socialite".

At least she admits that she's done nothing really extraordinary, just been lucky to have what she has. I hope to still be having that much fun when I'm 70!

She’s also reconfirmed for me the importance of wearing sunscreen while you’re still young.

i'll agree she has excellent personal style, as someone on here already said, of the filthy-rich kind regardless, she should get a clue, liver spots dont look hot on anyone... cover that skin up, girl! you've had ur time...

I dont like the way too-tanned too-skinny women look at all. The dark tan + ashy blonde gives me the creeps. Nan Kempner reminds me Mary´s friend in "There´s something about Mary"
The sun damage on her face and body is too visible. She dresses good but I cannot like her taste in clothes disregarding the bad taste in tanning and dieting! She´d look better with some pounds on, less witchy...
It´s my humble opinion....

I thought it was appropriate to post the news of her death here as well.
Here is a link:

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/07/05/ny...05kempner.html

I always loved her fashion sense, she'll be missed indeed.....
