Tory Burch, CEO and designer

Burch has built a lifestyle empire (that includes runway shows and boutiques across the globe) based on the desire for the classically preppy—imbued with a sense of fashion. Because she so perfectly embodies her own brand, women not only want to dress like her, but follow her party etiquette as well.

If there is anyone who knows her way around a classic New York party it’s Volandes. She grew up in Manhattan, currently lives on the Upper East Side and helms a glossy magazine dedicated to the life of the one percent. She definitely knows how to thank her host properly.
