The Hotel Claridge, Atlantic City

Eleanor Lambert on Fleur Cowles in the New York Times:

Eleanor Lambert, the elder stateswoman of fashion publicity, has known Ms. Cowles since the 1930's, ''when we were both just starting out in New York,'' she said, adding: ''Fleur had a column at The New York Telegram or something like that, and I was representing a hotel in Atlantic City. She's just gone from strength to strength. Part of her charm is the extravagance of her luck, and the puzzlement of how she has gotten along in life.''

Classic Miss Lambert.
