Deeda Blair in T

Thank you T magazine for this extraordinary profile on Deeda Blair. Aptly described as a “science nerd packaged as a fashion icon” by Harold Koda of the Met, Deeda Blair embodies simple and restrained elegance– a style that never goes out of fashion.

  • What a fascinating woman. I clicked through to the NY Times article. Her depth of commitment to medical research is incredible. At first glance, you might think she would be just another socialite who puts on finery to attend a benefit affair. I’m so impressed with how she dove in to the medical research world as a lay person, ready to learn and make a difference. Wow.
