PALM BEACH, Fla. — Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau would have been tickled pink and green from the outpouring of color at her memorial service that took place Thursday at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Fla. Rather than classic black, mourners paid homage to the fashion designer known for her sunny disposition by wearing her namesake brand in all its incarnations.
“This isn’t a funeral but a fashion show,” said one member of the packed congregation of local families including the Fanjuls, Lickles, Coniglios, Boardmans, Mercks and Kassatlys.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
