The “style politics” of the Duke and Duchess’ arrangement of their Paris residence, redecorated from 1953 by the celebrated firm “Jansen,” were quite remarkable. Living in a type of quasi-exile, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor were among the most famous figures in the world between the 1930s and 1960s. In 1963, Valentine George Nicholas Lawford [known as “Nicholas” to his friends] and the life partner of the photographer Horst P. Horst visited the Duke and Duchess of Windsor at their home in Paris and filed a report for Vogue. Editors determine the content, layout, and the mood, and the contribution of women to this profession in the twentieth century has been underestimated. This essay focuses on the work of Diana Vreeland.
