The Duchess Adores . . .

1stdibs and Natalia Vodianova

The lushly gorgeous Natalia Vodianova (mother of three!) graces the pages of this month's Vogue in a layout surely inspired by the Mad Men zeitgeist. Ms. Vodianova's sumptuousness, illuminated in no small part by the photography of master Peter Lindbergh, overwhelms in a way that the visuals of that show, however well-scripted and acted, never have and surely never will.

She is simply stunning.

The bygone era imagery of woman embodied by the Vogue layout aroused in the Duchess a stirring for attire of similar romanticism, and mystique. Luckily for the Duchess, 1stdibs is always open, and there are no avaricious shopgirls poking about. And while the Duches's grabs may not hearken back in a straight line to 1957, they are nonetheless nothing short of divine.
