2008 Fortunate 500: Style

Top Pick Nina Seely: Her pixie smile lights up at every event. And so it should. The Ralph Lauren retailer helps out, with husband Frank, People’s Community Clinic and the Austin Jazz Workshop, but she’s a sparkler at parties, and she organized signature events such as the ‘Sex and the City’ cocktail preview for Breast Cancer Resource Center. Plus, she’s just fun.
