This is the first of three times they attended events at the Whitney, and each time her look was incredibly memorable. Here it’s just a simple black dress, but the shoes and hair make it really stand out. I wonder if the shoes are Manolos?
For a long time, I thought the last few pictures where she has the center part were from some other event where she wore a similar outfit because she looks so different. You can tell how much these stuffy events drained her. I have looked exactly the same way she does in the last couple pictures of her in the car after a family get-together. It leaves you sapped of energy.
Excuse my melancholy today, but so many times when I’m going through these, I find myself wishing she had just found a great guy who wasn’t famous and lived in anonymity. She would have no doubt made a bit of a name for herself in the fashion world with her talents. I just hate that they all had to die so soon due to such a fluke. It really gets to me around this time of year. Even though I never knew them, it saddens me to think about what could have been.
