The Dead

Another day, another interesting person dies.

She died at Mount Sinai Hospital after a stroke, said her daughter, Pilar Crespi Robert. Countess Crespi died at 82, a half-century after she appeared in Life as one of the “High-Born Beauties of Europe as Elegant Sweater Girls,” and almost that long since she was a guest at Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball in 1966.

“The last of the parties where people weren’t ashamed to be glamorous,” she said of the legendary party at the Plaza Hotel.
