The folks at The Fashion Bomb were so kind to put together a primer on how to be a proper socialite for aspiring socialite snobs. How sweet of them! Teaching you everything from having a proper “ladies who lunch” outfit to perfecting your most apathetic looks, the post is both hilarious and hilariously informative.
For example, their lesson on how to “perfect your blasé stare:”
Practice diligently in the mirror, thinking thoughts like “I could so be on Roberto Cavalli’s yacht right now” or “Woe is me: another front row seat at Zac Posen.” The stare is all about projecting “I have better things to do but sure, I’ll indulge you and take a photo.” Then, of course, secretly scour socialite photog sites, like Patrick McMullan and New York Social Diary, the next day to see if you’ve got it down like Zoe and Genevieve Jones.
