Radziwill, a slender and elegant figure, was an integral part of the New York social scene in the 1960s and 1970s and attended the famous Capote black and white ball dressed in a silver and white shiny column gown, one of his style choices.

Lee Radziwill

His purchases in New York and Paris were followed closely and reported by the fashion press. She would have slipped Givenchy to the White House for her sister at a time when it was verboten to wear anything other than American stylists.

Daughter of Janet Norton Lee and John Vernou "Black Jack" Bouvier III, she was considered "pretty" next to her older sister, Jackie, and quickly became a style icon among the jet set. She married three times: first with Michael Canfield, in a canceled wedding, then with real estate developer and aristocrat Prince Stanislas "Stas" Radziwill, with whom she had two children, Anthony and Anna Christina , and finally with director Herb Ross. His second and third marriages ended in divorce, and his son died of cancer in 1999, shortly after the death of his nephew, John F. Kennedy Jr., in a plane crash.

Designers and fashion actors have paid tribute to the style icon, including Tory Burch who tweeted, "We are sorry and our dear friend will be missed, stay in peace, Lee Radziwill."

On the accompanying photo, which was featured in T Magazine, Radziwill is photographed in her Paris apartment, but she also kept a home in New York, where she died Friday.

Radziwill will be remembered as a fashionable, witty and elegant woman, embodying the avant-garde excitement of her time.
