Socialite Babe Paley Voted Best Dressed

(Original Caption) Among World's Best Dressed Women. New York: Mrs. William Paley (above), of New York, wife of the head of the Columbia Broadcasting company, headed the list of the World's best-dressed women announced today by the New York Dress Institute, which has conducted the International Polls Since 1940. Because of two ties, the list ran to twelve this year instead of the usual ten. One of the ties was between stage and screen star Mary Martin and the Duchess of Windsor for tenth place. The Duchess' down-grading ended her fifteen years of supremacy as fashion queen.
