The 16 Most Insane Brags on the ‘Modern Swan’ Socialite List
Once upon a time, socialites were the only it-girls who mattered.
Some people called them swans, some people called them rich bitches, and some people just called them fun. Because thatâ€™s what socialites are. Theyâ€™re fun.
Socialites go to parties. They get drunk. They get sloppy. They shrug about ripping their thousand dollar dress because they can just go out and buy a new one tomorrow.
Our modern day it-girls, who are almost all celebrities, are mostly too responsible to ever be this fun.
They care too much about being liked because thatâ€™s where their money comes, whereas socialites almost always come from money so they donâ€™t give a shit what anybody thinks.
Like, remember when we had Paris Hilton to look up to?
Those were the days.
Town &Â Country, a publication with a very preppy name but a surprisingly mainstream appeal, shares our nostalgia for the socialite era and just came outÂ with a list of 50 new it-girls to know about.
Here are 16 of the most insanely hilarious “bragging rights” from those 50 swans.
1. Gray Sorrenti, Photographer
â€œSheâ€™s a millenial who can do more with a camera than take selfies.”
2.Caroline Vreeland, singer/model

â€œUnfettered access to great-grandmaâ€™s wardrobe.”
To be fair, her great-grandmother was legendary Diana Vreeland, “The Empress of Fashion,” but still.
3. Annina Pfuel, costume designer
â€œHome is a 500-year-old castle in Bavariaâ€
Not to brag or anything.
4.Hope Hicks, Donald Trump’s press secretary
â€œShe lives rent-free in a Trump apartment.â€
No matter where it comes from, a free apartment in New York City is pretty much as impressive as it gets.
5.Isabel Getty,Â of the GettyÂ Museum Gettys and not the Getty Images Gettys
â€œAlma maters include Le Rosey and NYU.”
OMG, shut up. She went to NYU? GOALS!
6.Alessandra Balazs, daughter of a hotel mogul/actress
â€œShe can always get into Chateau Marmont.â€
Side note: does anybody still go to Chateau Marmont?
7. Emily Corker, daughter of a onetime Trump VP contender
â€œShowed up with Dad at a 2015 state dinner. The press took note.â€
Well, yes, that is what tends to happen when an old man shows up to an event with a hot young blonde in a red dress.
8.Princess Iman Bint Abdullah of Jordan, princess
â€œHas her momâ€™s looks and philanthropic tendencies.”
She’s also a princess. Have we made that clear?
9.Yara Shahidi, actress

â€œThis year she also signed with a modeling agency.”
10. Danielle Lauder, great-grand-daughter of Estee Lauder
â€œScored three film roles â€”Â all while still an active Kappa Kappa Gamma sister.â€
It doesn’t get much better than that, does it?
11.Flora Irving, great-great-grand daughter of Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney of the Whitney Museum Whitneys
â€œShe killed it in vintage Dior at last yearâ€™s Whitney Art Party.â€
Slow clap for Flora, people.
12-15. Viola, Vera, Mafalda & Maddalena Arrivabene, daughters of an Italian Count and Princess
â€œGeorge and Amal Clooney got married in their house.â€
Get out of town, girls. I’ve seen the pictures. You all have a NICE house.
16. Madina Visconti, Italian jewelry designer
A photo posted by MADINA (@madinavisconti) on
â€œMaintains a classic grandeur despite a penchant for turquoise hair dye.â€
Clearly, somebody a little more conservative else wrote that bragging right for her.
