Vanity Fair?

On the Goodwood Lawn

The glossy publication Vanity Fair describes its raison d’être as “From world affairs to entertainment, business to fashion, crime to society, Vanity Fair is a cultural catalyst that drives the popular dialogue globally.”

Out for The Count

Pretty pretentious stuff and a definite candidate for Pseuds’ Corner, so perhaps not the place to look for something that would appeal to this site.

High Hats and Arrowed Collars, White Spats and Lots of Dollars

Well that’s another of my theories that bites the dust. I found this engaging piece about the fabulous car collection of Ralph Lauren. Sixty odd classics that are all in working order.

Radiating Power

We are indeed fortunate that Mr. Lauren shares his treasure with us peons at shows like the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Back in 2008 the unique 1930 Mercedes-Benz SSK “Count Trossi” Roadster joined the others in the Cartier “Style et Luxe” exhibition.

Those of you interested in the above work of art can see more on UCP, HERE.

Meanwhile take a few minutes and go over to Vanity Fair to marvel at the whole collection.
