UPTOWN GIRL Ever yone who’s anyone wants to call the glamorous Elizabeth Georgantas a friend.

Central Park, London and Beacon Hill; “I am a city girl through and through,” says Elizabeth Georgantas. Plus, she’s absorbed worldclass style. The principal interior designer and real estate developer of Georgantas Design + Development is known about town to effortlessly throw an ’80s prom costume party (every gourmet appetizer homemade) as decorating a multimillion-dollar yacht. She’s not bad at putting herself together either. Defining style: “Style is about personality, not fashion. Fashion is fleeting: trends change. Style is humor and self-awareness.” Favorite things: “A Ceylon sapphire ring surrounded by sapphires in every shade of purple and blue. I designed it; My grandmother’s vintage Oscar de la Renta paisley coat and her ivory bangle with a carved sterling clasp. My dad’s handmade Lucchese cowboy boots. He passed away when I was 22, and I wear them regularly.” Shopping haunts: “Local designer Daniela Corte is my go-to. She’s uber-talented, thoughtful and nice.” Life motto: “Love deeply. Be kind. Do good.”

“ My style is an attraction sometimes magnetic, and sometimes it’ s a passing fancy.”
