So many good memories! One of my fondest is dining with cashmere baron Brunello Cucinelli at his home in Umbria for the article Portrait of a Paladino (September 2016).
Brunello’s tiny granddaughter, Vittoria, played waitress while he regaled us with whimsical—sometimes ribald—tales of his youth. He also schooled me in classical philosophy. I remember leaving our dinner enamoured of his indefatigable positivity and warmth. Closer to home, letting loose with my fellow editors at the Tatler Ball is top of the list. The dresses. The music. The people. And those late-night snacks. Oh gosh, yes.
