If you thought Vogue‘s $31,349 “glamping” trip seemed tone deaf, or you thought Dara-Lynn Weiss’ story about putting her seven-year-old on a diet struck the wrong chord, then hold onto your hats because the magazine recently hired an actual princess, Princess Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis of Germany to be precise, as their Style Editor at Large. And we just discovered her Twitter. Von Thurn und Taxis (or TNT as she’s fondly called) is a veritable treasure trove of absurdly elitist quotes.
We get that Vogue is meant to be aspirational, but sometimes the lady mag seems to have lost all touch with reality. And TNT, with all her limo drivers, boar-hunting trips, and designer duds, is a perfect example of that. TNT is a princess–that’s not a lifestyle you can climb the ladder and possibly attain–unless you are really good at marrying princes (and if you are, nice work).
That being said, TNT does provide some pretty great entertainment. We culled some gems–both from the stuff she pens for Vogue.com as well as her Tweets–and illustrated their ridiculousness with photoshop. From lamenting how much seeing a fashion show standing “sucks,” to planning her birthday vacation to the Arctic Circle (where else!?), click through for our favorite TNT moments.
UPDATE: A new Tweet from TNT, “@epcutler thanks Mr we love to be loved as for @fashionista lol big time!! Amusing !!” So she’s got a great sense of humor, to boot, and we love her even more for it. Keep those Tweets coming, TNT!
