Before They Were Socialites, Part Six

by Chiara Atik · April 20, 2010

Before she started sitting Front Row at Fashion shows around the world, this socialite was living a relatively quiet life at Spence. These days, she's working a relatively pedestrian job (for Fashion Royalty, at least). Who is she? Click to find out...-







Bee was just as pretty when she was 14 (pictured here from her high school yearbook)as she is now, and relatively low-profile. Looks like she enjoyed hanging out with some goofy guys back then too--she was destined to work for Ricky Van Veen.

According to a New York Times article from 1996, then 10 year old Bee hadn't quite grown into her mother's Fashion Legacy.

Anna Wintour described her young daughter's style:

"She likes overalls and sweatpants, and she doesn't like dresses. As long as she's happy, that's fine, but occasionally, I would love her to wear a dress."

Apparently, young Bee also took issue with unnecessarily revealing clothing.

"She's against anything that is in any way revealing. She'd like me to go out like a monk."

Bee has definitely grown into wearing dresses now, but still shies away from low necklines and too much skin.

We've always liked Bee. Maybe someday we will be able to forgive her for THIS.
