Princes of our age

Every era has its aristocrats.

A new breed thrust into prominence by new-found power and influence.

Though not all may reclaim the romance associated with kingly courts.

Usually, the usurped class, if not made irrelevant, is revived in society's psyche only through nostalgia for old times.

The masters of the universe based in Wall Street have fallen in disgrace. Who will replace them as the new barons?

Whoever it is, surely, like their predecessors, they are not infallible.

Only style icons possess that secular privilege.
