Lauren Santo Domingo: Haute Couture Heiress

Vogue contributing editor Lauren Santo Domingo (her husband is Andres Santo Domingo) just launched her own website, www.modaoperandi.com, an online trunk show that offers expensive, hard-to-get looks straight off the catwalk. A former model, Santo Domingo’s wedding dress was custom-made by Olivier Theyskens, who literally scissored off the never-ending train post-ceremony so Santo Domingo could dance the night away in Cartagena, Colombia. Her close chums include supermodel Karolina Kurkova, the boys behind Proenza Schouler and Anna Wintour, but she says the chicest woman she knows is her mother-in-law, Beatrice Santo Domingo, and her personal style icons are Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy and Nan Kempner: “They were a bit racy, very daring and never boring.” A lot like Santo Domingo herself.
