I was sad to read that former Vogue editor Catherine di Montezemolo passed away this week. For those of you who don’t know she spent an unbelievable thirty-five years at American Vogue and then Lord & Taylor. At a time when many women didn’t have “careers” she paved the way for them in publishing, and retail. She truly lived an amazing, inspirational life. My most sincere condolences to her friends and family.

Here is the obituary via The Huffington post:
“Di Montezemolo was a striking platinum blonde known for her grace, personal style and unpretentious manner. Described by friends as a woman who always had a smile on her face and a generous heart, di Montezemolo had a varied career that started at Vogue, where she spent 35 years and became a fashion editor in the Sixties covering European fashion. She later spent 12 years at Lord & Taylor, where she continued to review ready-to-wear shows and the European couture as well as American fashion.”
