The March issue of AVENUE features our seriously selective list of the 39 Best Dressed Women in New York. Here is just one of the 39…keep coming back to see who else made the cut!


Linda Fargo: Front Row Director


As the senior vice president of Bergdorf Goodman, Linda Fargo knows what you’ll be wearing before anyone else. With her snow-white hair and red lipstick, she’s never too shy to make a statement. At The Metropolitan Costume Institute’s Anglo-mania ball, she donned a British Union Jack flag skirt emblazoned with the words “God Save the Queens.” “My hair was styled to the sky in a bouffant mohawk,” she remembers. “I am sure that it was my pride that was left on those long paparazzi-lined stairs that night instead of a glass slipper.” Being outrageous is why we love Fargo, so it’s no surprise that eccentric fashion icon Iris Apfel is one of her heroes. “I’m endlessly bowled over whenever Iris appears. My God! The mix of it all. The daring! The artistry! The individuality! She’s her own creation.” Sounds like Fargo could be describing herself.
