bye-bye night-bird

What a farewell it was: New York's oldest style icon Zelda Kaplan
died yesterday at the age of 95 while sitting in the front row
(her usual place at fashion and art shows, get togethers 
and parties) at her friend Joanna Mastroianni show.
Born in Trenton, New Jersey, in 1916, Zelda was indisputably
the oldest night-bird of NYC and one of the most known 
socialite of the States, so famous to become the 
subject of a documentary called ”Her Name Is Zelda”.
She'll be remembered not only for her stunning sense of fashion
and her youthful spirit yet also for her humanitarian efforts:
she made several trips to Africa supporting women's 
rights causes. Bye-bye warmhearted, elegant Lady.
