ANN SLATER: ADVANCED STYLE ICON FROM NEW YORK HAS NEVER LET A SILLY THING LIKE AGE KEEP HER FROM BEING CHIC!
New York socialite Anne Slater has remained consistently stylish with her signature blue eye glasses and brushed back hair which she adopted in the 1950’s. These details have helped her create a look that remains uber chic and which has won her the honor being included in The International Best Dressed List .The International Best Dressed List was founded by fashionista Eleanor Lambert in 1940 as an attempt to boost the reputation of American fashion at the time.
New York was a moving cocktail party,” says Anne Slater, immaculately dressed, accessorized with her signature cobalt-blue glasses. The style icon and social fixture is reminiscing about the extremely lively scene that took place in her sprawling apartment at 998 Fifth Avenue, which overlooks the Metropolitan Museum of Art—and which is now on the market for $17.7 million. “I don’t like just having parties where you come in and you get hors d’oeuvre. That is very ho-hum. I like something that is, you know, a little fuller.””
Ho-hum never had a chance here, between the duke of Windsor’s impromptu drum performance one night and Rosie the dancing bear doing a waltz with Johnny Gallagher another. When El Morocco closed, Slater explains, the club would empty out and head over to her place for a few late- night/early-morning games of Ping-Pong. Her guest-list regulars were “a mishmash” of people like Ingrid Bergman, Cary Grant, Porfirio Rubirosa, Grace Kelly, and Fred Astaire. Definitely not ho-hum.nymag.com/realestate/vu/2006/16651/
