SOCIALITE always puts her beauty to work for a good cause, making the rounds on the charity circuit, lending her delicate ruffled petals to every photo op. Known as a generous bloomer, she’s a sought after guest and does her best to show up and add a bit of class wherever she’s invited. SOCIALITE is best friends with LEADING LADY. The two can often be seen shopping together before important events. We’ve heard that SOCIALITE and DRAMA QUEEN enjoy an occasional girls’ day out, but nobody’s snapped a pic of them together yet.
