Lauren Santo Domingo

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

Vogue contributing editor Lauren Santo Domingo (nee Davis) is the daughter of Ron Davis, a former Poland Spring exec and Judy Davis, an artist. After a happy childhood in Greenwich, Lauren set her sights on the west and graduated from the University of Southern California. The fashion maven married Andres Santo Domingo, a Columbian beer heir, in 2008 in one of the most talked about society weddings of the decade. The multi-talented Santo Domingo recently 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. 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. Santo Domingo and her husband welcomed their first child, a baby boy, in April.
