1972 A SIGNATURE LIFE Forty-seven years ago Diane von Furstenberg graced the cover of Town & Country with her then-husband, Prince Egon von Fürstenberg. The couple, who had two young children at the time, were fresh to the New York social scene and, according to T&C, “already the talk and envy of their contemporaries.” Fast-forward nearly half a century: The iconic fashion designer and women’s champion is still the talk of the town, and she appears on our cover again, this time with granddaughter Talita. “I think of aging as an acquisition, not a loss,” she says (page 100).…

fierce grandmas

Nancy Pelosi’s nine-year-old granddaughter, Bella, jumped up and down with proud abandon when Pelosi cast her vote for Speaker of the House on January 3. And weren’t we all, regardless of politics, with Bella there? Her Grandma Mimi had just become, at 78, the third-most powerful person in the U.S. government. The woman who admits to spoiling Bella with forbidden scoops of ice cream was ready for battle. Did you have a grandmother like that? I don’t mean the most powerful woman in America; I had two, and they were not. One started working at her father’s fruit stand on the Lower East Side when she was nine and fought her parents for the privilege of going to high school. She won, and she spent a lifetime as a bookkeeper—professionally and…

RICHARD DAVID STORY The writer and former editor of Departures has traveled the globe on assignment. To research “WHAT WOULD PLATO WEAR?” (page 72), he made a pilgrimage to Solomeo, Italy, to meet with Brunello Cucinelli, who recently celebrated his fourth decade as undisputed king of cashmere. BETHANY McLEAN The financial journalist, whose book The Smartest Guys in the Room remains the definitive account of the Enron scandal, is “fascinated by the ways in which fact and fiction inspire each other.” In “WHY WE STARE AT CRASHES” (page 56), she considers why the 2008 financial crisis—the subject of the new play The Lehman Trilogy, which opens this month in New York—still captivates us. THOMAS WHITESIDE “The von Furstenbergs are like family,” says Whiteside, who photographed this month’s cover story, “THE INHERITANCE” (page 100). “I watched…

hollywood engagement

On a remote atoll in the Maldives, the Norwegian filmmaker Joachim Rønning gave his girlfriend, T&C contributing editor Amanda Hearst, a surprise on New Year’s Eve: He proposed. “The best thing I did in 2018 was say yes,” Hearst said on Instagram, beaming, her emerald-cut diamond ring front and center. The next save-the-date for the couple, seen here in an exclusive, intimate portrait, is the night before the Academy Awards. (Rønning’s Kon-Tiki was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film in 2013.) Hearst is hosting the second annual Sustainable Style Gala for Maison de Mode, the e-commerce business she co-founded. The fête at the Sunset Tower pairs designers who are committed environmentalists with like-minded A-listers—say, Diane von Furstenburg and Angela Bassett, Vivienne Westwood and Rosario Dawson—to spread the gospel that ethical fashion can…

confessions of a horse mom

There’s a spot near the Atlantic coast of Florida where the beaches give way to grassy pastures. Each winter thousands of competitors come here to chart their horses over jumps, guide them in the ballet of dressage, or pit them against champion polo teams. Welcome to Wellington, home of the largest equestrian competition in the world. I’ve seen the exhilaration firsthand: For the past four winters my daughter and I have moved to Wellington for 12 weeks, and she trains more or less nonstop. There are multimillion-dollar McMansions lining the show rings and polo fields, but I rent what I call our witness protection condo a few miles away: Across the street there’s a cop parked in his cruiser, and next door there’s a retired school principal named Roger, who sits in…
