Two figures from San Francisco society appeared this weekend in the New York Times.
First, Vanessa Getty.
Looking beautiful in an ad for Judith Leiber, Mrs. Getty was cited as an example of socialites who pose for luxury companies. The Times’ Eric Wilson cheekily noted that “Rich people, it turns out, are surprisingly afforable” — an allusion to the fact that Mrs. Getty donated her modelling proceeds to her favorite charities.
Surprisingly poignant was the contribution of another member of a prominent SF family: Sean Wilsey. In a piece on the World Cup, he wrote movingly of his involvement with the Ghana soccer team.
