Gold-plated Hell

I found the news of Kate Spade's death-by-suicide heartbreaking and would never have suspected her to be so unhappy and trapped by her circumstances.  Looking at this image of her apartment in Manhattan, I recall André Leon Talley's quote from my previous post about living in a "gilt, gold-plated hell".

After her death, I listened to her interview with Guy Roz from the show "How I Built This".  She and her then-husband Andy Spade describe the scrappy beginnings of her purse line.  Again, I didn't sense her unhappiness in the interview.  

It can be difficult to perceive what's beyond a person's exterior.
