The Rag on the Riches

Our readers have been known to express their views, approving and not-so, about the space this magazine devotes to the lives and plights of the rich, if not the rich and famous. And our “Look Book” subjects are often on the receiving end of such attention. This week, we featured Eglantina Zingg and Elisa Estrada [The Look Book,” March 24], from Venezuela and Ecuador respectively, who told writer Amy Larocca about their love of fashion and their ongoing travels to places as far-flung as Miami and the Amazon. The response online was spirited.

Must be nice to be trust-fund babies.

So fitting: A trustfundafarian found a rasta hat to fit her ever so bohemian lifestyle. Find some people with actual style and that actually accomplish something in life.

At least these girls aren’t sitting at home on their parents’ estates ... they are traveling the world and experiencing other cultures ... and Elisa’s bag is fabulous.

Let’s keep it real. Take away the Fendi coat and “rasta” style hat and you probably would have no interest in interviewing them at all.

I loved the outfits. We are not here on earth to [live in a] hovel and dress in rags. It’s wonderful to rejoice in their prosperity. I wish for them greater and greater prosperity. They look cute to me. To entertain envious thoughts is devastating.
