Illustrious Upstater: Fashion Designer and Friend to the Fabulous Vicky Tiel

I wouldn’t have pegged Vicky Tiel—long-time designer of cleavage-enhancing dresses worn by the likes of Halle Berry, Megan Fox, and most famously, Liz Taylor in her prime—as the Upstate cabin type. She used to party with Dick & Liz, plies her dresses in Paris, and admits to affairs with Paul Newman and Warren Beatty. She seems too fabulous by half for the sleepy charms of Greene County, but as I discovered in this morning’s Sunday Styles, that’s where she has her weekend home.

Check out the article for a great photo of Vicky in one her gowns posing in front of her log cabin. Her new book It’s All About the Dress, which details, among other things, how Woody Allen won a night a night in bed with her at a wrap party contest and what to wear when you’re “giving your man a foot massage,” sounds like a wonderfully retro hoot.
