I'm just really inspired by her. She is an intelligent beauty and down to earth. Enough said. :)

A constant source of inspiration in the way she speaks, her values, the way she raise her children.
She is an elegant wife and mother.
I shared one of my favorite examples of her elegant and fine behavior in the article.
This movie is based on the true story of Cole Porter. Linda Porter is the wife of Cole Porter, musician, songwriter and galavanting socialite. She is also known as Linda Lee Thomas. A noted beauty in her youth and a descendant of the Lee family of Virginia (prominent family in American history), she grew up in a life of luxury. However, she did not have happy marriages or was not loved the way she had hoped. She was gracious to the end and loved with all her heart.
In the movie, Linda had excellent dressing, carriage. The way she moved, sat, walked was lovely. The way she spoke was noticeably elegant whether she was happy or angry. I felt sorrow for her when I watched her try so hard and was graciously elegant. I wanted to wring Cole Porter's neck (played by Kevin Kline)! To his credit, he was extremely talented and wrote a lot of my favorite songs.
For some reason, the movie was not well received but I loved it. It is one of my favorite movies of all time with all the Cole porter songs too!
Her character is played by Kelly Rutherford in the popular television series, Gossip Girl.
I particularly loved her in Season one. Always immaculately dressed, whether it was for an elegant event, casual day time or a theme party, she is always appropriate and elegant. At first, she seems cold and sarcastic, but the audiences warm up to her later.
She is cold to her children but you'll quickly realize why … when you meet her mother. That was probably how she was brought up!
Later on, you'll realize that she was like her wild-child daughter when she was younger but was threatened to be cut off from her family fortune and she gave up the man she loved. Perhaps it gave an insight to the 'upper classes' and those in circles?
My next elegant woman is Charlotte York from the television series, ' '.
I featured her elegant Park Avenue home in my article, "."
I love everything about her. She is sweet, kind and appropriate, yet we see a very human side of her that all of us can relate.
The next elegant woman is Bree Van De Kamp. She has excellent and . Her are very elegant. One of the best I've seen.
She is a little uptight and sometimes too self-righteous but she's elegant nevertheless.
Watch her in the series, even just to study the way she carries herself in television series She is wonderfully played by Marcia Cross
From the television series,
She is a little crazy but you'll love her. Her articulation and speech is beautiful and elegant. Dress wise, she is preppy on casual days and elegant in the evenings. She has excellent posture. There are several opinions on preppy dressing. Some people feel that preppy is not quite an elegant style. As for me, I feel that classic understated preppy styles are quite pleasant.
Autumn Reeser plays Taylor Townsend.
Played by Lynn Hung in the film 2008 semi-biographical martial arts film based on the life of Ip Man, a grandmaster of the martial art Wing Chun and the first person to teach Wing Chun openly.
She was quite the grouch but she is elegantly dressed always and was quite the elegant mother. So far, I do not know whether she was wealthy by birth or marriage to legendary martial arts master Yip Man (I have not read up her history), but she appeared to be very comfortable with wealth. Later on, when they became very poor because of second Sino-Japanese war, she was still able to be happy despite having lost everything. In fact, she seemed happier because now her husband had more time with her.
How many of us can remain content and happy when everything is stripped from us? See also .
I don’t know much about them but I’ve noticed their excellent carriage and posture. They are usually dressed elegantly in a casual way. I’m thus referring to their outward appearance here (as elegant women - not character).
