From Society Darling to American Princess: The Glamorous Life of Lee Radziwill
Lee Radziwill may have entered society as Jackie Kennedy's younger sister but her days as a stylish ingenue to a sophisticated socialite have proven the former Princess to be much more than the other half of the dazzling Bouvier duo. With an impeccable taste that drove her career as an interior decorator and an impressive list of friends included everyone from Truman Capote to Sofia Coppola, Radziwill has long held the title of society's most understated "it girl".
