If you came of age in the 1970’s like I did, then you had to be familiar with the sleek looks of Boston Society beauty, Lisa Taylor. Her face graced the cover of every fashion magazine from Vogue to Elle multiple times, as well as the pages of Helmut Newton’s groundbreaking photo books for a decade. She embodied the healthy, unadorned face of the young awakening women’s movement at the time. This past week she was in Beaufort staying in a cottage of The Rhett House Inn. She was in town visiting her sister, lovely Barbara Cochrain (who just bought a house on the Point across from Ann Helm and Beth Grace). “I loved Beaufort and loved my stay in the cottage (of The Rhett House Inn)” said Lisa to me. All who met her agreed what a lovely person Lisa is, both inside and out, and we hope she returns for a visit soon!
