Tatler has revealed its new ‘society swans’ – comparing them to the It girls of the 1950s.
The British society bible has named designer Sabine Getty, heiress Hayley Bloomingdale and fashion muse Alice Naylor-Leyland as the new It girls of today.

The magazine added the socialites are defined by their ‘business acumen and professional success’, as well as their ‘poise and elegance’.
Here, FEMAIL takes a look at the new society swans, along with their predecessors, including Barbara ‘Babe’ Paley, Nancy ‘Slim’ Keith and C. Z. Guest…
