What broke these erstwhile soulmates apart is the saddest story I’ve ever heard.

WHITE ORCHID Ralph Lauren’s oceanside cottage in Round Hill, Jamaica

In its own private cove tucked away from the hubbub of touristic Jamaica, Round Hill sits in a cocoon of sugary sand near Montego Bay. Elegant and understated, it remains faithful to its heritage as a playground for the old rich, with the likes of Adele Astaire, Oscar Hammerstein, the Marchioness of Dufferin, and the Viscount and Viscountess Rothermere, once owning a piece of it.

It was taken by photographer to the socialites Slim Aarons at the poolside of Cottage 26 in 1959 against a backdrop of lime-green loungers, wicker side tables, rattan chairs, and pineapple-patterned coral cushions. Round Hill, now owned by Lauren and his wife Ricky, was just one of the many places in which Babe, New York’s super-swan, nested, which included her St.

Aarons also took a photograph, now equally famous, of her with her husband, CBS founder William S. Paley, and their esteemed, then beloved houseguest, Truman Capote, as they took refuge in Jamaica from the hurly burly of their New York lives.
