Ob­sessed with ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’

New York Post - - NEWS -

The pho­tog­ra­pher shot so­cialite Suzanne Rogers, now 50, in her Toronto home in 2010, af­ter meet­ing her at a fashion show in Paris. Rogers says her out­landish out­fits and dé­cor are in­spired by the candy-fac­tory heiress Truly Scrump­tious from the film “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.”

“She’s mar­ried to Ed Rogers, a ma­jor me­dia mogul in Canada. She says her style for her clothes and her house is es­sen­tially one and the same: ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’in­spired,” Green­field ex­plained. “Here she’s wear­ing an Os­car de la Renta dress for a char­ity ben­e­fit.

“Her house is in­cred­i­ble — even her book­case is art di­rected: They don’t ap­pear to be real books, be­cause they’re all the same. She had four clos­ets and used the wine cel­lar as her over­flow shoe closet — she had 200 pairs of shoes, not in­clud­ing boots. She loves Her­mès Birkin bags, which start at about $12,000, and said she had them in al­most ev­ery color.”

To­day, Rogers’ Instagram ac­count is a candy-coated trib­ute to her os­ten­ta­tious life: photos of her trav­els to Lon­don fashion week and a spa in Capri, and the so­cialite rub­bing shoul­ders with Diane von Fursten­burg, Bono and her neigh­bor Sean Con­nery. Oh, and her Bar­bie-pink golf cart, com­plete with “Suzanne” van­ity plate.

FAN­TASY WORLD: Canadian so­cialite Suzanne Rogers said her style in­spi­ra­tion is the char­ac­ter Truly Scrump­tious from the 1968 mu­si­cal film “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” — and she has the blond bouf­fant to prove it. Her fam­ily’s net worth is said to be $7.4 bil­lion.
