Kelly Bensimon Soaks Up the City-by-the-Sea

April 20, 2012 at 2:12 am 2 comments

Real Housewife of New York, model and designer Kelly Bensimon took advantage of the extraordinary spring weather this past weekend and headed to Newport for an overnight mother/daughter escape. The two lounged in luxury at the divine Vanderbilt Grace  (if you haven’t sipped their signature cocktail, be sure to put it on your to-do list, preferably enjoyed on the rooftop deck), enjoyed shopping at Sole Desire, massages at the hotel spa, and dining at Muse, The Landing and the Black Pearl. “The last time I was in Newport, I was modeling for Elle magazine on America’s Cup Stars and Stripes,” she Tweeted.

I asked her this week what her impression was of Newport since it’s been quite a while since she’s been, and she answered, “My daughter and I loved living the nautical American dream at the Vanderbilt Grace in Newport!”

    I love the Vanderbilt Grace so much. I had the pleasure of staying in one of their 2-story suites last summer. Absolutely stunning!

      It’s beautiful! Next time you’re in Newport, we’ll have to toast their signature cocktail on the rooftop terrace!
