She might have been painted by Boldini, or Picasso in his Rose Period. So great is her beauty that no matter how often I see her, each time is the first time.
-Billy Baldwin, interior designer
In 1934, when she was 19, Barbara Cushing had a devastating car accident that destroyed her face, but some cosmetic surgeon recommended by her father not only reconstructed her face, but gave her a much more distinguished ¨babe look¨ which she will be remembered for.

Babe Paley had only one fault: she was perfect. Other than that, she was perfect”
- Truman Capote
smoking: like many women of her time, Babe Paley was a smoker, and she smoked about 2 packs a day, which perhaps contributed to her early death, but few women smoke as elegantly as she did.
sitting: babe paley seemed having established a very friendly relationship with whatever she sit on: soft sofa, hard chair or cushion on floor.
"I never saw her not grab any ones attention, the hair, the makeup, the crispness. You were never conscious of what she was wearing; you noticed Babe and nothing else."
- Bill Blass, fashion designer

Whatever she wore, she wore in a way you would never forget.¨
