What is a Socialite?

[soh -sh uh -lahyt]

1. A socially prominent person.
2. One who is, or seeks to be prominent in fashionable society.
ORIGIN: 1925-30; social + ite®. 1928, probably a coinage among writers and editors at "Time" magazine, perhaps as a contraction of social light, in imitation of words in –ite.

Socialites are interesting, mysterious, personable, creative and held to high standards. They stay in the know by keeping their eyes and ears peeled to the streets (well, the world for that matter); using their gifts, talents and skills to contribute as unique assets to society.

The Socialite is an individual, regardless of demographic or socioeconomics that participates in social activities- disbursing their time in the likes of events, entertainment and community up-builders.
