Kelly Florio Kasouf, the daughter of former Condé Nast CEO Steve Florio, has published a children’s book about a little girl named Sophie who sneaks into a publishing house to visit her father. The characters include a man wearing a Louis Vuitton cloak (André Leon Talley, in everything but name) and Isaac Mizrahi in Swarovski crystal wings. Kasouf, who had her first one-on-one lunch with Anna Wintour when she was 10, is selling The Super Adventures of Sophie and the City: All in a Day’s Work at Barneys. [WWD]
