You're welcome. I found a couple older pics for someone who asked.

Original caption: 12/6/1968-New York: Nan Kempner, one of society's leading ladies, was in the spotlight during a benefit fashion show held in New York (11/22) . Mrs. Kempner wore a nouveau print harem outfit fashioned in a new fabric called "Touch."


With Valentino in 1985.

I saved that VF for the article on Nan, it was an amazing profile and my first introduction to her.

Nan has always been one of my all time favorite style icons. She always wore my favorite designers too. No one, I mean no one can wear a couture dress Like Nan. She is so sadly missed.
