Socialite Lee Radziwill, Red Gown in Red Room. Photographed by Mark Shaw in the 1960's, socialite Lee Radziwill, younger sister of Jacqueline Kennedy is considered a great style icon. McCall's November 1962 issue quotes Radziwill as saying "A tall person might choose this slender red crepe by Castillo at Lanvin. It is enveloped by one large panel, knotted together at the strapless top." Radziwill continues to be frequently photographed even today. Radziwill's former palatial homes in England were decorated by the late Renzo Mongiardino. The source for this image was a vintage 35mm color transparency. The approximate printed size of the image in inches will be 10” x 15” (11” x 17” paper size), 13.75” x 20” (17” x 22” paper size.) The largest size of this image is 17" x 22." Note: Sizes are approximate since some images have been cropped in keeping with Mark Shaw’s original vintage prints of this material.
