Publisher Comments:

“The women in Inheriting Beauty are serious people, they have careers, they care for their families, and they raise millions of dollars each year for charities, saving the world, as it were, and looking good doing it.”

—William Norwich

“The women in this book are lovely. How could the book not be?”

—Graydon Carter

Featuring high-profile figures such as Roberta Armani, Delphine Arnault, Amanda Hearst, Vivia Ferragamo, Valeska Hermes, Beatrice and Gaia Trussardi, Jacqui Getty, Veronica Etro, Nabila Khashoggi, Dylan Lauren, Renee Rockefeller, India Hicks, and Carolina Herrera, Inheriting Beauty is the definitive photography book of the world’s most glamorous and beautiful society women. Photographed at their private residences, these women display inimitable elegance and grace set against the backdrop of stunning domestic spaces. Fashion photographer Roger Moenks captures these cosmopolitan figures of fashion and wealth in transcendent yet intimate images, accompanied by brief quotations and childhood photos. Through Moenks’ lens, readers are allowed inside exclusive private residences in fashion epicenters such as New York, Los Angeles, Paris, London, Milan, Madrid, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, as well as inside the personal pasts of these famous women.
