American socialite, a glamorous jet-setter, columnist, and author of the 2001 book "21st-Century Etiquette." She was born at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit and is a descendant of Henry Ford, founder of the Ford Motor Company.

She has married and divorced three times, first to shipping tycoon Stavros Niarchos, next to financier Anthony Forstmann. On the evening of 31 August 1986 she married Edward Downe, Jr., a former journalist and CEO of Downe Communications. They subsequently divorced.

She often said that she might have worked in the family business if it were not for her father's objections to women in the executive suite. She lives in a New York penthouse, and owns a gift catalog business "Omni Presents" and devotes much of her time to charitable fund-raising, particularly for New York Presbyterian Hospital.
