The long marriage of sugar tycoon Pepe Fanjul and his wife, Emilia, the subject of constant gossip and speculation among the international rich and famous group, is finally over and out after being on and off for months. It was thought that the marriage would finally stick after the Fanjuls made peace and left earlier in the summer for a trip to Europe together. But, as from the beginning of the troubles, Pepe never really lost the interest in Nina Griscom that kept him off balance for years. In the turbulent interval, Nina divorced her husband, the New York plastic surgeon, Dr. Dan Baker, and has set off on her own. Will Pepe be far behind? Of course, not. They are now in Palm Beach together. Pepe has moved out of the Fanjul house in Palm Beach which Emilia will occupy, and she has moved out of their beautiful Fifth Avenue apartment. What is most admirable in the whole mess is Emilia’s extraordinary behavior throughout. She is and always has been 100 percent a lady. But when Emilia finally told Pepe goodbye, it was goodbye. Oh happy day! Patricia Herrera, the beautiful younger daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Reinaldo Herrera of New York and Caracas, Venezuela, and Gerrit Lansing Jr., the son of Mr. and Mrs. Gerrit Lansing of Greenwich, Conn., are engaged with a New York wedding planned in November. Gerrit Jr. runs his own New York financial company, Madison Trading. Patricia is a fashion editor at Vanity Fair. Both are stars of Manhattan’s young social set. Patricia, noted for her fashion flair and daughter of a beautiful mother, the fashion designer Carolina Herrera, has the dreamy look of a young Goya beauty painted on Goya’s best day. And who will design her wedding dress? Mommy, of course. "

“I’ve struggled my whole life to find a bathing suit that fits me that doesn’t look like a maternity bra.

The two decided on a swimwear collab and increased the industry standard size for the pieces.
