>Southern Charm’s Eccentric Star

A musician and bon vivant whose southern roots go back to the 17th century, Sudler-Smith also directed the documentary Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston in 2010. “Filmmaking and storytelling is my passion,” he says.

“We talk about everything—she even gives me advice on women. Plus, you have your own wing and a staff there, so it’s not a bad place to stay.”
