The Golden Age
Gold brocade, like this covetable knee-length dress (J.Crew Collection, $328), is unforgettable. "It's my Evita moment!" says January, poised on a balcony. In the '60s, magazines photographed stars at home with perfect discretion: "You didn't know every single dirty thing about every celebrity," January observes.

According to her friends, "Gracie" had a delightful sense of humor that offset her patrician beauty. On March 9, 1981, Lady Diana Spencer (who had just become engaged to Prince Charles) met Princess Grace at a charity event in London. She reportedly asked her advice about marrying a royal. "Don't worry, dear," Grace is said to have told her with a smile, "it will get worse."
