May 4 is Luella Bartley’s birthday.
Or at least I think it’s Luella Bartley’s birthday. The always-unreliable website Famous Birthdays has her listed as a Gemini. Last year, I noticed that people were sending her birthday wishes on Instagram on this day, confirming that she’s a Taurus. Today, her staff surprised her with a birthday party. I suppose that we can all assume that today is really her birthday.
I discuss her briefly in “Star Struck Style.” I believe that she is one of the most underrated forces in fashion. She has a grasp on trends that seems almost supernatural: she knows where fashion is headed before anyone else. I also mention that Taurus designers make the best employees, and how wise it can be to install a Taurus designer at a label that does not bear his or her name. From all appearances, Luella seems to be as reliable as the day is long.
