2 MINUTES IN THE ELEVATOR WITH CAROLINE VREELAND

back to list

Caroline Vreeland lives large and without restraint. You need only look to her Instagram to know this to be true: endless plates of pasta, red wine, red lips, and bold prints appear front and center against a rotating backdrop of studio sets, luxury hotel rooms, and exotic beach destinations. Ask Vreeland anything, no matter how personal or provocative, and chances are the singer-model-actress (and great-granddaughter of the legendary editor Diana Vreeland) will respond with a level of candor that will make you blush. During a recent stay at Soho Grand, we stole a moment of Vreeland’s time to talk all things NYC.

You have one night in NYC, how do you spend it?

Caroline Vreeland: Pasta Limone at Lil’ Frankie’s and then on to see Georgia Brown sing at Arthur’s Tavern.
