EDITOR’S LETTER

St. Moritz is widely recognized by those who know it well—and even by those who have visited just once—as the ultimate winter playground. Outdoorsy and old-school, outrageous and exhorbitant, St. Moritz (pronounced “Snt Moritz,” rather than “San Moritz”) enjoys a distinct spirit that can be difficult to pin down. A particular humor, an appreciation of the finer things, but perhaps above all, an elegant eccentricity. It is a place of moonlight ice-skating and Cresta Run sledding; of sleigh rides, cricket, polo (on ice!), and skijoring behind galloping horses on the frozen St Moritzersee. Silliness anywhere else, perhaps, but somehow civilized in St Moritz. It was in 1864 that forward-thinking hotelier Johannes Badrutt kickstarted Alpine winter tourism with a bet, telling four well-heeled English summer guests that he’d refund them if they didn’t like his Kulm Hotel in the winter. They stayed the season, and rosy-cheeked Victorian trailblazers were soon arriving with a thirst for activity that Badrutt happily indulged, which eventually led to him building the first Cresta Run in 1884. When the Cresta Club launched in 1929, membership was based on being a certain sort of man, able to not only descend the Cresta Run in one piece, but to do so having imbibed at least one beef-broth Bull Shot cocktail, with a sense of humor still intact. By day it’s The St. Moritz Bobsleigh Club, the site of the only naturally frozen bob run in the world. At night, it morphs into Dracula, a members-only enclave first opened in 1974 by renown European playboy Gunter Sachs (he preferred the term gentleman). Today, his son Rolf Sachs is Dracula’s proprietor, where a strict photography ban remains in place, and access is only granted by accompanying a life member. Despite the tough policies, Dracula is widely regarded as the best party in all of St Moritz. A new book from Assouline, St. Moritz Chic, celebrates the resort, as detailed by managing editor Alex Travers, who returns to Q and Quest after a stint in South Florida; we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him back. Speaking of chic, we’re also thrilled about our winter cover girl, Marisa Berenson, whose story is thoughtfully delivered by Q Contributor Debbie Bancroft (who counts Berenson as one of her best friends). The well-heeled, iconic supermodel and actress was taught to dance by Gene Kelly... mingled with Greta Garbo at her parents’ parties...was discoverd by legendary Vogue editor Diana Vreeland...and was famously dubbed “The face of the 70s” by Yves Saint-Laurent. Perhaps equally amazing was her resolve to refrain from drinking or taking drugs, despite being a regular at Studio 54 with the likes of Halston, Andy Warhol, and Bianca Jagger. “I drank orange juice,” Berenson happily concedes. Don’t miss Palm Beach native Olivia Meyer’s article on Banniere, the silk scarf company she was inspired to launch after frequenting Counterclockwise from top right: St Moritz Chic cities around the globe. During her travels, Meyer encountered local (Assouline, 2019); Hermès Eau Des Merveilles Eau artists with whom she partnered to produce designs that reflect the De Toilette; Jimmy Choo Aveline Bow-Embellished culture and lifestyle of each artist’s native locale.

1 2 Gloria Vanderbilt was a star—an artist, author, actress, designer, model, socialite. She did it all with such style and grace, and remained a wonderful mother, wife, and friend. Throughout her life she shined bright, making appearances in Vogue and Vanity Fair. She was, however, an artist at heart. Painting was a passion and she had her first exhibit in 1948. Vanderbilt even acted in a production of “The Swan” at the Pocono Playhouse in Pennsylvania. We can only hope our selection of jewelry this season will be as beautiful and multi-faceted. Enjoy!

friends, and my daughter’s Godmother. Writing this story is a supreme pleasure, but also illuminating. I learned many things about her that I never knew. Part of why she is such a good friend, is her modesty. We all wonder, looking at our icons, what separates us? What made them iconic, and the rest of the world, merely mortal? What comforts me, in my lack of illustriousness, is reviewing Marisa’s history. Imagine this cocktail of genes and background: Marisa Berenson’s grandmother was the legendary, creative designing genius Elsa “Schiap” (to those who knew her fondly) Schiaparelli. Born to a Neapolitan aristocrat and Islamic scholar, who went on to become the Dean of the University

of Rome, and niece of the famed astronomer, Giovanni Schiaparelli, Elsa was surrounded by intellect and creativity. She became a designer by way of instinct and artistry rather than training, and one of her most celebrated legacies would be her reputation as Coco Chanel’s biggest rival. But in being driven more by “inspiration” rather than technical/commercial skills, after 20 years her famed house eventually closed. We know what Coco’s course was. During Elsa’s career, she collaborated with Dali to create the legendary Lobster Dress, along with the Skeleton and Tears dresses. Her famed buttons were modeled after such imaginative objects as candlesticks, cauliflowers, and crickets. Legendary designer Jean Schlumberger’s first job was as her button designer. Elsa created the first wrap dress, revisited in 1970 by Diane von Furstenberg—ironic in that Diane is Marisa’s best friend. Elsa Schiaparelli raised her daughter, Maria-Luisa Yvonne ‘Gogo’ Radha de Wendt, largely alone. Her charming, “fortune-teller,” “psychic” husband, Count Wilhelm de Wendt de Kerlor, moved just ahead of the law, and left them after Gogo’s birth. This, compounded by Gogo’s polio affliction, made Elsa’s accomplishments even that more remarkable. Marisa told me, “Schiap inspired me to be strong and independent—to dare oneself with unlimited self-expression, to believe that anything is possible if you have the passion.” Gogo completely recovered from her polio, and later married Robert Lawrence Berenson, who was the President of Aristotle Onassis’s shipping company. He was later appointed Plenipotential Minister, an Ambassadorial role, by President Kennedy. His sister was one of the first two women admitted to The Basketball Hall of Fame and his cousin, considered the father of art history, was art historian Bernard Berenson. Gogo and Robert had two daughters, Berentia (can you blame her for going by Berry?), and Marisa. Marisa attended The Fleming School in New York (yes, now Ron Perelman’s Fleming restaurant), but was largely raised in Europe and schooled in Switzerland, Italy, France, and England where, in acting class she felt she was “hopeless” at acting. “I ran off the stage, crying because I was so terrified.” But the life of a retiree was not in the cards for Marisa. While attending a ball in New York with her father, Marisa was spotted by legendary Vogue editor Diana Vreeland. And so it began. Young and lovely Marisa Berenson

was propelled into one of the most acclaimed careers in pictures—still and cinematic—that one could possibly imagine. Marisa’s then boyfriend, Helmut Berger, introduced her to director Luchino Visconti, who immediately cast her in Death in Venice, her film debut. Marisa took acting lessons and appeared off-Broadway to hone her skills. It wasn’t long before she was chosen to play Natalia Landauer, the elegant German victim in Cabaret—a role for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe and a BAFTA award, and for which she won the National Board of Review Award for Best Supporting Actress. During filming, she developed close relationships with Liza Minnelli and Joel Gray—friendships that remain strong to this day. Perhaps most challenging, but satisfying, was her invitation by the incomparable Stanley Kubrick, to star in Barry Lyndon. She worked on the film, first in Ireland, living in a drafty wing of a castle, in those famous, misty moors. Their production moved suddenly to England, supposedly because of an IRA threat. Her performance was lauded and the film solidified Marisa’s place as an iconic beauty and magical actress. She appeared on countless Vogue covers, and in too many fashion shoots to mention. She even appeared on the cover of Time and Newsweek magazines. Yves St. Laurent called her “The face of the 70s.”

Through all of this, she never lost her core of proper breeding and good behavior. She didn’t drink or take drugs, which is nearly remarkable considering she regularly frequented Studio 54 with the likes of Halston, Andy Warhol, and Bianca Jagger. “I drank orange juice,” she happily admitted. Her innate spirituality, honed in India with the Beatles at the age of 18, never left her, and in fact, has sustained her. After relationships with in-demand bachelors including David Rothschild, Sam Shepard, and Arnaud de Rosnay, Marisa met and married James Randall—the wealthy “Rivet King”—at a grand wedding in Los Angeles. Naturally, their nuptials were photographed by none other than Andy Warhol. The next year, Starlite Melody Randall was born, and Marisa’s focus turned toward nurturing and home life. While her first marriage lasted only two years, Marisa wed again, this time to New York lawyer, Aaron Richard Golub—a union that would last from 1982 until 1987. Berenson continued to model, and wrote four books: a tribute to her grandmother, Elsa Schiaparelli’s Private Album (with Hubert de Givency); Marisa Berenson-A Life in Pictures, with Steven Mesiel; another autobiography, Beyond the Mirror: Intimate Moments; and in the 80s, Dressing Up. Despite being dressed and posed for much of her life, Marisa managed to develop her own distinct style—one that has been, and will continue to be, emulated by generations. Informed by her design genetics, international roots, and time spent in India, Marisa is the original and genuine Bohemian chic girl (perhaps the oft used term “Boho-chic” was coined with Marisa in

mind?). Her legendary beauty has been made more indelible by her unique way of effortless dressing and presentation. Marisa was traveling to New York from Paris on that fateful day, September 11, in 2001. Unbelievably, Marisa was in the air at the same time that her sister, Berry Berenson Perkins, tragically flew into the World Trade Center on the first plane. Marisa’s plane was diverted to Newfoundland, where she learned from Starlite that her sister had perished. Passengers on the redirected plane were housed in sparse, makeshift, municipal buildings, but, as the Broadway show Come From Away depicted, a silver lining was the outpouring of comfort and support they were shown from local residents. While in Newfoundland, Marisa developed a close friendship with a priest, who would later conduct Berry’s service at New York’s St. Ignatius Loyola. Marisa said: “Berry was my nearest and dearest. She was the kindest, and most beautiful soul. Although I was the oldest, she protected me when we were children as I tended to be more of a rebel than she. She was funny and stylish, a great photographer, a loving mother and a perfect wife.” Paris still beckoned, so Marisa found and designed an enchanting Left Bank home. But the more exotic Marrakech also had allure, and so Marisa began to design her dream home there. Amazingly, Marisa’s uber-European mother, Gogo, also moved to Marrakech and fell equally in love. Marisa joined the Honorary Committee of her late friend’s Musée Yves Saint Laurent, and developed a line of skin care products that were carried in spas throughout Morocco and Europe. Her extraordinary

home also produces herbs and vegetables, which help her live the healthy, sugar, and gluten-free life that she always has, long before doing so was in fashion. She is clear proof that it works. Marisa enthuses about her new home: “I love Marrakech for the peace it brings me, for the lifestyle I have created—it’s a little paradise—a Heaven of well being and beauty. I love the light. I love my garden filled with beautiful trees and flowers. Eating from my organic vegetable garden, my chickens laying organic eggs… To be able to swim all year round and have wonderful scrubs and Hamam (Turkish Baths). It’s a holistic regenerating life of body, mind and soul, in between work and being out in the world. I like the people, the food, the craftsmanship…” Marisa continues to model and act. She was beautifully unforgettable in I Am Love, appeared as Lady Montague in Kenneth Branaugh’s Romeo and Juliet, and performed her Berlin Kabarett in extended shows in Paris and Spoleto. And look for her in ad campaigns for Etro and Pat McGrath cosmetics. Her beautiful home will soon be featured in Elle Décor and coming up this year, “movies, TV, books…and suprises!” she told me. And most importantly to her, was the birth two years ago of Starlite’s beautiful baby girl, Luna. What is uniquely hers—beyond the pictures, the films, the fame—is her inherent grace, style, kindness, and beautiful spirit. I can honestly say I’ve never known a more light-filled person. She inspires and graces us all. u

It’s almost magical. The hotels, the mountains, the models, the movie stars, the race car drivers. St. Mortiz opens our eyes to the triumph of resort living but also gives insight into the rich history of a place where sports, the arts, and adventure come together effortlessly. All of us await the day when we can visit. But until we can, Assouline recently published a book called St. Mortiz Chic that helps take us there. The book features text by Dora Lardelli and a delightful assortment of pictures, of both St. Mortiz present and past. I enjoyed Giorgio Pace’s production; the images are unique and well-selected, including the many famous Olympic posters. Assouline’s books continue to be a success. People like them because they are image-driven—who wouldn’t enjoy looking at pictures of beautiful celebrities in beautiful places—and because they are easy to digest. Surely, one of the world’s most glamorous towns is an agreeable topic of conversation. On my brief previous visit to Switzerland, I had dipped my toes in the St. Moritz you hear the most about—the alpine town that allows you to ski in the morning and race down a bobsled track at 80 miles per hour later in the afternoon. (The architect Sir Norman Foster also enjoyed these kinds of thrills, and famously said, “St. Moritz is full of wonderful contrasts and contradictions—on the Cresta Run, you can hurl yourself on a metal sled down a tunnel of ice at the break of day after a night on the town.”) But there is also some sense of another more quiet and serene St. Mortiz, a land of peace and nature and discovery.

Genuine adventure—whether that involves an adrenaline rush or relaxing exploration—requires a certain lack of planning and trust in happenstance. And St. Moritz has much to offer and get lost in, and it will be impossible to do and see everything in one visit. But if you do decide to make concrete plans, allow me to suggest one: arrive by train. Both the Bernina Express and the Glacier Express travel along a UNESCO World Heritage railway line, filled with tunnels and viaducts. It’s a journey you’ll never forget. Perhaps you won’t get the chance to visit this season, but I’m sure you’ll have much fun exploring St. Mortiz Chic. u

RALPH LAUREN: designer, businessman, American icon. As the founder of one of the most successful fashion brands in the world, his name is so synonymous with a certain type of Americana that one sometimes forgets he’s a real— living!—person, and not a fictional persona invented to embody the brand. But real, he is. And on the occasion of his eponymous brand’s 50th anniversary comes Ralph Lauren: In His Own Fashion (Abrams, 2019), a book celebrating the life of the designer through the lens of his cultural and fashion impact. Alongside more than 350 photographs, style expert Alan Flusser traces Lauren’s trajectory through the worlds of men’s fashion, women’s fashion, and home décor, starting, of course, with his childhood in the Bronx and continuing on through his beginnings in the retail world as a tie salesman and ultimately his status as a global fashion and lifestyle superpower. “With his landmark stores gracing the capitals of Europe and Asia, his rainbow of polo shirts dotting the beaches from Brazil to Bora Bora, and his restaurants serving classic American fare in capitals around the world, Ralph Lauren may be the foremost ambassador of the American Dream,” Flusser writes. Through remembrances from everyone from Ian Schrager (who was a camper in the Catskills while Lauren worked as a counselor) to the president of Henri Bendel at the time Lauren WINTER 2020/

debuted a Polo by Ralph Lauren outpost in the store, Flusser creates an intimate portrait of Lauren’s life and work. The hundreds of compiled photographs include Lauren as a boy, intimate family portraits, photos of his homes, and images of Lauren’s designs in runway shows and advertising campaigns. They demonstrate the breadth of Lauren’s design range over half a century, with collections so varied that any uniting theme, beyond the clothes’ classic timelessness, is a sense that the styles often were inspired by various equestrian pursuits—from cowboy-style ranch work or tweedy foxhunts to, yes, polo. Flusser convincingly presents his argument for Lauren as the modern age’s premier arbiter of style. “Here I propose Ralph as not only our generation’s preeminent tastemaker but also the leading guardian and ultimately the savior of high-class taste and style,” he writes. “As his roots deepened and his influence widened through the globalization of the Polo brand, Ralph forged a bulwark against the culture’s deteriorating taste level by championing time-honored style over fashion’s more provisional solutions. Reinvigorating the public’s interest in well-bred taste and quality, he ended up democratizing it more profoundly than any of his peers—and maybe more than anyone in modern history.” u

Swifty’s + The Colony = Perfect Palm Beach Pairing By Alex TrAvers

Asked to name the most dynamic winter destination in Florida, I offered the only reasonable answer: Palm Beach, a town with culture, scenery, restaurants, and hospitality. (Also of importance is the active social community and calendar, which makes visiting even more exciting.) Such a welcome package was nicely summed up by a buddy, Jack Ferenz, who played on the PGA Tour, where Palm Beach is a major stop. He said, “Not only is the golf world-class, but the hotels, food, and events make you never want to leave.” Of course, there is even more to do in Palm Beach, such as visit the Flagler Museum. Or grab an Americano at Sant Ambroeus after a trip to the Society of the Four Arts. But it is a small island, so for those looking for a place to stay in the center of all the action, allow me to recommend The Colony—one of This spead: The Colony Hotel, with its classic Colonial and pink exteriors, sits on the eastern end of Worth Avenue.

the town’s true gems. Its interiors are bright and playful, and the outside is painted in a welcoming salmon hue. (The style may be familiar, but The Colony has made it one-of-a-kind.) Modest in size and bold in vision, The Colony provides a sense of authenticity that is embraced in Palm Beach more than anywhere in the state of Florida. Locals call it “the pink paradise,” a nice reprieve to the sterile white walls and geometric furniture modern luxury hotels offer today. The 89-room property, just steps away from the famed Worth Avenue shops and the ocean, easily allows guests to explore some the most scenic areas of the island. Really, there is no other hotel in Palm Beach like it. During your stay, the hotel staff can enlighten you about the town’s cultural and gastronomic treasures. But it should also be mentioned that The Colony recently announced a partnership with Swifty’s—yes, This page, from above: Inside one of the villas at The Colony; the hotel offers in-house exercise classes in its Solarium with some of the best instructors on the island. > Opposite page: One of the hotel’s custom trollies inside the main lobby.

The Life Of The Party “Hospitality is the key that unlocks all the secrets of entertaining well,” writes party planner extraordinaire Bronson van Wyck in his debut book, Born to Party, Forced to Work (Phaidon, 2019). And he should know: Van Wyck & Van Wyck, the event-planning company he formed 20 years ago with his mother, has thrown celebrations for clients such as Beyoncé, Madonna, multiple presidents, Mercedes Benz, and Chanel. In his book, van Wyck illustrates how he brings his philosophy of hospitality to life. He provides an insider’s look at how he pulled off some of the most unforgettable and imaginative parties of the past two decades, from Sean Combs’ 40th birthday party at The Plaza to a Homeric ball on Mykonos, plus weddings, fundraising galas, holidaytime happenings, extravagant corporate events, and more. It’s all accompanied by 350 photos of the grand soirées he’s planned, conveying the visual excitement of the events. The book also includes van

Wyck’s musings on topics such as dress codes and invitations. Known for a style of entertaining that combines tasteful sophistication with the gracious warmth of his southern upbringing, van Wyck takes a humble approach to his role, writing “What is it that we do? Actually, nothing revolutionary. We are taking part in a tradition as old as man, using the same tools to create the same feelings of welcome, of being appreciated, of being taken care of, and of being loved.” But entertaining on such a grand scale is indeed an art, and van Wyck has accumulated two decades’ worth of wisdom to impart. Born to Party, Forced to Work is a perfect guide to throwing memorable fêtes that are as enjoyable to give as they are to attend. After all, as van Wyck says, “We give parties because we want to express appreciation for people we care about. And also because we want to have fun.” u

Banniere: Merging Art And Fashion by

Olivia Meyer


Ba n n i e re a t b an n i e re co. co m

P h ot os c ou r te sy o f

The memories we make when immersed in a culture different from our own have a profound impact on our lives. Whether it be just a few miles away or ten thousand, travel introduces us to different worldviews and new perspectives on art, community, and natural surroundings, which in turn shape some of our most powerful memories. The transformative experiences I have had through travel inspired me to create Banniere.

Banniere founder Olivia Meyer collaborated with artist Kate Waddell to create the Charleston Scarf. Waddell has always loved the vibrant colors in Charleston, both reflected in the city itself and the wonderful people in it. > Opposite page: Meyer teamed up with local Palm Beach artist Cara Mimun for the brandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first design, inspired by the intimate feel of the beach atmosphere that is Palm Beach; Meyer donning one of her colorful designs (inset).

Banniere is a unique silk scarf brand whose products are designed by local artists in cities around the world. Every piece is uniquely crafted to represent the culture and lifestyle of each artist’s beloved city. Fueled by the values of travel, collaboration, and quality, I work closely with individual artists to produce one-of-a-kind designs that embody the heart of each destination. Designs range from artists’ representations of iconic landmarks, to abstract depictions of what various cities represent to them. Every arist tells a unique story via a different medium, which we then transform onto silk. To me, quality is key. I work closely with a boutique production company to create products that are 100% silk and hand rolled in England. Reflective of our company’s core value of collaboration, I am passionate about promoting each artist with whom I work. Tucked into every Banniere package is a personalized card telling the story of every artist, their connection to the city, and his or her inspiration behind the design. One of the greatest rewards of creating this brand has been discovering vibrant communities of entrepreneurs, artists, and like-minded individuals and bringing them together. Banniere continues to search the globe for new artists. For the first design, I decided to look toward my own beautiful hometown of Palm Beach for inspiration. I collaborated with local artist Cara Mimun on a design inspired by the intimate feel of the extravagant Via’s mixed with the beach atmosphere that is Palm Beach. Artist Mimun points out, “The first thing one sees upon entering the Island are the rows of palm trees leading straight to the beach— that is when you know you’re home.” Palm Beach continues to serve as my home base in between travels. The charming town of Charleston, South Carolina, where I lived and attended college, has also remained close to my heart. The Charleston scarf design was painted by fellow College of Charleston art alumni Kate Waddell who owns a gallery space downtown. Charleston is filled with historic streets and southern hospitality, old southern families, and a vibrant community of young people. The design itself comes directly from memories of walking from the great restaurants on King Street alongside the colonial homes, with their wide side porches, down to the Battery. There is a certain je ne sais quoi about Charleston that resounds with a deep soul and quite frankly, there is no place like it. Not too far away, the Middleburg scarf design was painted by Lydia Marie Elizabeth, a native of Virginia. Lydia was able to capture the notable Middleburg Christmas Hunt Parade with a magical snow scene surrounded by hunting scenes. Middleburg holds special meaning in my family—as it was not only the hometown of my mother’s side of the family for generations, but my father’s mother also owned a horse farm there. Many holidays were spent riding and gazing at the endless rolling hills.

Just around the port lies the timeless Il Pellicano Hotel, where the scarf was first sold. My fondest summer recollections include cave diving with my cousins followed by Aperol Spritzes, card games at the Pellicano, and Spaghetti alle Vongole in the port. There are no better memories for both Daisy and me than boating alongside Monte Argentario and long swims in the salty sea. Banniere is also passionate about reintroducing the classic silk scarf to a new generation as wearable art. We hope to spread excitement by sharing the many ways to wear a scarf.

Caldera House Brings Unmatched Luxury To Jackson Hole by

b r o o k e k e l ly

Jackson Hole, the massive valley in Wyoming bordered by mountainous terrain and colloquially known as the “Hole,” has long been known for is rustic ambiance, casual vibe, and, of course, it’s beautiful natural wilderness. In the spring and summer months, you can go fishing or rafting on Snake River, check out one of the many outdoor concerts with live music, or go hiking through Grand Teton National Park to catch a glimpse of the rich wildlife, like moose or even a grizzly bear. In the colder months, the area transforms into a prime skiing destination characterized by some of the most complex slopes in the country. It is no surprise that Jackson Hole has become one of the top vacation and second-home destinations for some the wealthiest people in the world, emulated internationally with even an eerily similar city in China of the same name. Despite the global acclaim, Jackson Hole is certainly not showy. The city attracts those who prefer to fly under the radar, with a true love of the unperturbed and old This spread: Each suite at Caldera House, located steps from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s tram, includes private terraces with gas firepits.

Wild West nature of the Hole. It’s the kind of place where you wear jeans to dinner and stop in at a local watering hole for a beer, a key distinction from some of the competing and glitzier ski towns like Aspen, where you’ll find chic cocktails bars, designer shops lining the street, and even a host of charity galas. Fortress Investment Group co-founder Wesley Edens and his partners have recently invested more than $100 million to build Jackson Hole’s newest hotspot Caldera House, which provides chic and ultra-luxury lodging, while still paying respect to ruggedness of Jackson Hole. Opened in June 2018 and situated in Teton Village—steps away from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s tram—the ski in and ski out is ideally located at the foot of some of the best slopes in the world and just a short car ride to Jackson’s town square. The hotel is comprised of eight suites designed by Carney Logan Burke Architects & Interior Design, including two-bedroom options starting at $1,250 per night, and four-bedroom suites at $5,000. While the price tag might seem exorbitant at first, these suites are massive and can easily fit large groups and families (the four-bedroom suites are 5,000 square feet!). Although each suite is unique, they all are largely influenced

For the past 14 years, Lilly Pulitzer has been hosting its highly anticipated charity event in Palm Beach, and this year’s party took place at The Beach Club in late December. The evening’s theme was “Squeeze the Day,” inspired by Lilly Pulitzer’s former juice stand on Worth Avenue. In addition to its own stand and entry hall filled with orange groves, the party featured a silent auction, buffet-style dinner, a large dance floor, a Junkanoo band, and more. The venue’s colorful ambiance reflected the brand’s vibrant spirit, and guests contributed to the lively mood by dressing in their favorite Lilly Pulitzer prints.

WINTER HOROSCOPES

Q112

Capricorn Dec. 22 to Jan. 19 Capricorns are considered to be among the most serious of the zodiac, which means that you are a force when it comes to your profession. But, what’s wrong with unbuttoning? It’s O.K. to party—and, well, when better to start than New Year’s Eve? > Dolly Parton: January 19, 1946

Cancer June 21 to July 22

Aquarius Jan. 20 to Feb. 18

Leo July 23 to Aug. 23

You are known to vascilate between being an extrovert and being an introvert—such is the nature of being an Aquarius. It’s an exercise in balance. Schedule a weekend to “recharge your batteries,” especially after the excitement in December (wink, wink). > Clark Gable: February 1, 1901

The holidays are over and your sequins are hung up. You live to show off and the winter doldrums have you feeling buried. Remember who you are, Leo! The weather outside is frightful, but so is your roar. Falling temps and snow need not crush your spirit! > Mick Jagger: July 26, 1943

Pisces Feb. 19 to Mar. 20 It comes as second nature that you’re sensitive, dear Pisces. But you’ve been especially sensitive after a disappointment. Remember your artistic talents (e.g. composing music, creating art) to reestablish a sense of calm— and a sense of confidence. > Cindy Crawford: February 20, 1966

Virgo Aug. 24 to Sept. 22 It’s part of your being to feel “one” with nature, among the animals and connecting with the elements—from the water to the wind. And this is as true in winter as it is in summer, in spite of the snow. Grab a friend (or two) for activities in the outdoors: it will satisfy your soul. > Lauren Bacall: September 16, 1924

Aries Mar. 21 to Apr. 19 It can be difficult to be active in the cold months, which can be a bummer for Aries (a sign that is defined by its sportiness). What about a fitness class to address that extra energy? Spinning, yoga, pilates, barre, boxing, strength training... take your pick! > Ali MacGraw: April 1, 1939

Libra Sept. 23 to Oct. 22 There has been an altercation between your family or your friends and you, dear Libra, are being called on to mediate. This is an awkward situation, yes, but better to be in your position than that of those who are feuding. Be sure to be diplomatic and selfless. > Britt Ekland: October 6, 1942

Taurus Apr. 20 to May 20 Tauruses are considered the most devoted of the zodiac. This means that it’s possible for you to be in a situation where you’re more committed than your partner. Our advice to our bull-ish friends: be trusting but don’t be too trusting in these coming months. > Jack Nicholson: April 22, 1937

Scorpio Oct. 23 to Nov. 21 With the change in the year comes a significant change in your life. While you may fear the cold bite of winter, your future is as bright as the sun reflecting off the white blankets of snow outside your window. As spring unaffectedly forges ahead, so does your success. > Vivien Leigh: November 5, 1913

Gemini May 21 to June 20

Sagittarius Nov. 22 to Dec. 21

The stars continue to watch the war between the two sides of this zodiac sign, wondering: “Are you a good witch or a bad witch?” You, dear Gemini, can be both. Because when you’re good, you’re very good, and when you’re bad, you’re horrid. > Marilyn Monroe: June 1, 1926

People count on you (and your charisma) to brighten up the room: they know that you’re the life of the party. That said, remember to share the attention with the host or, even, with the person you invited as your date. It’s best to be generous with the spotlight. > Frank Sinatra: December 12, 1915

/ WINTER 2020

It has been an emotional season for Cancer, who has either started—or finished—an important stretch. This is the time for putting your needs before the needs of others. Be your own BFF in order to guarantee that you see success during the next exciting chapter of your narrative. > Jerry Hall: July 2, 1956
