Tues Chic: Lee Radziwill

Before there was Kate and Pippa, there was Jackie and Lee.

Lee Radziwill, sister of Jackie Kennedy Onassis, was born Caroline Lee Bouvier in Southhampton New York in 1933.  With forays into acting, public relations and interior design, Lee has made her mark as the stylish younger of Jackie O. and has shined as an American symbol of true elegance over the years.

Watch the video of her talking about hanging out with Truman Capote and touring with the Rolling Stones.  Sofia Coppola sits down with Lee for a discussion on protecting privacy.
