(May 31, 1928 – October 18, 2010)
Biography

She was born on May 31, 1928, in Larchmont, New York, with her twin sister later assuming the married name of Gloria Schiff. She grew up in Nova Scotia and was spotted as a potential model when she moved back to New York with her mother and sister, appearing on the cover of Look magazine in 1945 and was introduced to society as a débutante in 1947. She met Count Rodolfo Crespi on a blind date in a New York City restaurant.[2] They were married three months later, on January 22, 1948, in a ceremony held at Church of St. Ignatius Loyola on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.[3]
Through her choices in attire and in publishing, Crespi played a major role in influencing the fashion world and giving a boost to the careers of designers such as Fendi and Missoni. Valentino credited Crespi with giving him a break into the fashion industry and it was a Valentino dress worn by her twin sister that convinced Jacqueline Kennedy to try the designer. In addition to her role as editor of Italian Vogue, Crespi's appearances at social events such as the Black and White Ball thrown by Truman Capote in 1966 were widely reported.[2] In a best-dressed list published in 1958 by the New York Dress Institute, Crespi was ranked third, behind the Duchess of Windsor, but ahead of Queen Elizabeth II in fourth place and Audrey Hepburn in fifth.[4] She was included on the International Best Dressed List and was recognized by the Fashion Hall of Fame for her "faultless taste in dress without ostentation or extravagance".[2]
In addition to her editing duties, Crespi and her husband both did public relations for major designers.[2] Her husband had been involved on the editorial staff of Vogue Brasil and Vogue Mexico.[5] After returning from Rome in 1961, she received notice from the fashion world by wearing skirts that were four to five inches longer than the prevailing fashion, helping to promote a new line from the designer Fabiani, saying "I now can't stand the sight of my knees showing" after donning the longer skirts.[6] The government of Italy bestowed its highest-ranked civilian award to Crespi for her assistance in promoting the fashion industry in that country.[2]
Crespi lamented the decline in Italian social life among the wealthy and aristocratic crowd in the 1970s in the wake of social unrest and a wave of kidnappings, telling Time magazine that "In Italy now you want to feel rich and look poor".[7]
Crespi died at age 82 on October 18, 2010, at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan due to a stroke. She was survived by a daughter, a son, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Her husband had died in 1985.[2] Her daughter Pilar Crespi was an assistant editor at Vogue and has spent most of her career in the fashion industry.[8]

Yeah I just think there are hotter aristo/princes men. Than what is out there in the public known arena.  sigh

Don't get me wrong I think Harry & Williams (on his peak of beauty) and others public princes are alright but there are really really hot aristo & princes guys that are not known to the public  thumbsup

I wonder if he will marry her. Aristo and royal men seem to prefer older women and William did after all marry Kate.

He's YUMMY  hot

I don't think they have a future though. If he gets 30 he might want to have children and Dita will be 41 then... She looks great and I like her "street" style, but in truth I don't believe in relationships where the man in more than 10 years younger -sorry TCP baking cookies

The Continentals are the most impenetrable aristocratic society on the planet. You literally do not hear about them and you can't really end up even knowing who they are if you walk down the street. They are that skilled at being secretive.

Yes, but they are few and far between; you don't really KNOW about them except as names and the occasioanl fluff article about their weddings. Other than that, we don't really hear about them or gossip about them on here. They have businesses, but aren't really mixing their personal life with their professional life.
