Once I started thinking about The Plaza Hotel,
my thoughts led to Kay Thomspon, 
the author of the amazing Eloise children's books.
Not only did she live in The Plaza herself, 
and write the famous Eloise books,
but she was an amazing actress, singer and dancer as well!
Kay Thompson starred in the movie, "Funny Face" alongside
Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire.
Ms. Thompson played Maggie Prescott,
the editor in chief of Quality Magazine.
This character was based entirely on Diana Vreeland.
Watching "Funny Face" on dvd recently,
I couldn't get over how well this
fifty year old movie holds up today.

Which got me thinking.....

"Just go ahead.  Give ideas away. 
Under every idea there is a new idea
waiting to be born."
                        ~Diana Vreeland
