American women

Just look at these photos. Thirty prints of each are on sale now at Net-A-Porter. Hand picked by Anna Wintour from the Vogue archive, no words of praise are really necessary. Have you ever seen Grace Kelly look so ethereal? And my two other favorites - Babe Paley, looking every bit an early Blair Waldorf (or is it that Blair's every bit a modern Babe?), and a one Miss Jacqueline Bouvier, pre-Kennedy years. Classic.
