Vanity Fair, telling it like it is

Don't read this if you're likely to get annoyed by references to socialites

Thank God someone piped up. I've been trying to ask this question for weeks.

What's the Difference Between Being a Socialite and Being Unemployed? demands the Society and Style blog. What indeed?

Complex arguments are then pursued. Is it, perchance, the lure of Ibiza? Or is it the recession? Either way, apparently the "party scene" is not what it was. But panic not, ye socialites: Perhaps things will pick up back in London this weekend, however, as Cartier Polo, at Windsor Great Park, takes center stage. (Will we see you at the Chinawhite tent?)
