December's Style Icon of the Month: Susan Fales-Hill

Who is Susan-Fales-Hill? Author, television writer and producer Susan Fales-Hill is a staple of New York High Society. The daughter of Josephine Premice, famous Haitian entertainer who shared the stage with the likes of Ossie and Lena, and Timothy Fales, Caucasian socialite. In 1985 she graduated with honors from Harvard University with a degree in literature and history and right after that went to work as a writer for the Cosby Show. A year later she went to work as a writer for A Different World and then in 1998 she co-created the hit series Lincs. She authored the book Always Wear Joy.Today she is a staple of many New York philanthropic and social circles as well as a member of the International Best Dressed List. She and her husband (an African-American banker) reside on Park Avenue.

Why is she fly? We love her because despite growing up in the lap of luxury, this woman made a name for herself as a top student and a big player in Hollywood. On the red carpet, Miss Hill is always impeccably put together in a classic and elegant ensemble that transcends timely trends. I mean... she's on the INTERNATIONAL BEST DRESSED LIST. Not a game. She has an amazing long and lithe body and radiant skin. Her beauty is enhanced by dancer like poise.We also love that she wrote for two of our fav’ shows; The Cosby Show and a Different World. Miss Hill is worldly, she speaks three languages, and is making a place for women of color in traditionally segregated high society of New York.
