How would it all end? For months the outcome of the up-and-down, on-and-off society scandal madly whirling around Pepe Fanjul, the sugar tycoon; Emilia, his wife of 34 years, and Nina Griscom, the other woman in the triangle, has been breathless Topic A in social circles from Portland, Oregon and Maine to Tierra del Fuego and all points in between. They all read there, you know, especially when the news is as juicy, fascinating, highly publicized and long-running as this has been.

Will Emilia and Pepe stay married, or will they divorce over Nina, who left her own husband Dan Baker while her affair with Pepe was going on? Or will Pepe fly to Nina’s side and stay there? (He has been obsessed with her for years.) Will Emilia, having given Pepe every chance to make up his mind, finally throw in the monogrammed towel allowing Nina to collect a trophy husband?

Well, here’s the end of the story. Pepe gave Nina a final goodbye kiss in Brussels last week, and he and Emilia are now back together in London staying at Claridge’s. Emilia always knew Pepe would be flying to Europe with Nina last week. He had told her so. She also knew their breakup would be final as Pepe had promised. That’s final as in really final. The Fanjuls are off together tomorrow for a shoot at Annick, the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland’s estate, and then to Blenheim Palace, the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough’s country seat. Then it’s on to Spain for another stunning shoot with swells. Are you listening, Portland, Maine and Oregon and Tierra del Fuego?



Valentino sponsored a splashy party, the Boys’ Club of New York fall dance, where the La Dolce Vita theme was everywhere. Beautiful girls wore beautiful dresses by Valentino — surprise — handsome men sipped bellinis and Cipriani 42nd Street was all aglow. There were pale gold and green scalamandre tablecloths, bronze candelabra and autumn flowers everywhere in hues of russett, orange, eggplant and pistachio. It was truly a Bellini Ball with exotic drinks right out of Harry’s Bar, roast lamb and chocolate mousse. The newest Maseratis parked just inside Cipriani’s looked more than ready for the Italian Riviera.
