Tinsley Mortimer: Socialite? Yes. Fashion Icon?
April 10, 2007
Tinsley Mortimer: you may have seen her in Style.com, Vogue or any other number of gossip blogs that cover the to-dos of young socialites. She has certainly made a splash in New York with her appearances on the runway and at cocktail parties, but has she made a dent besides on the ranks of socialites like herself?
Compared to the likes of Nicky Hilton (we won’t even bother with Paris since she’s in a league of her own) and Ivanka Trump who both seem to supply a significant amount of fodder for mainstream mags, Tinsley hasn’t been in the limelight much until recently. Whatever the reason for her lack of presence, what about her potential to create a new wave of fashion trends? Does this budding celebutante have what it takes to transform into a fashion icon? Is her style up to snuff to be lauded amongst the ranks of classics like Hepburn or Jackie O? Check out the good, bad and the ugly below, then tell us what you think.
