One of the best bands of the moment. Have released two albums to date: "Vampire Weekend" and "Contra".

Best songs include, in no particular order: "Giving up the Gun", "A-Punk", "Mansard Roof", "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa", "I stand corrected", "M79", "Cousins", "The Kids don't Stand a Chance".

Vampire Weekend consists of four guys, Ezra Koenig (main singer, guitar), Rostam Batmanglij (keyboards), Chris Tomson (drums) and Chris Baio (bass guitar).
The guys from Vampire Weekend met when they were studying in Columbia.

Their awesome music is influenced by reggae, ska and afro-pop.

The first definition says "The opposite of Paris Hilton"
I would like to correct that. Paris Hilton is new money, as her father made a big amount of money in little time. Her father. She is by no means old money.

A perfect example of an old money family is the Vanderbilt family.

New money is characterised by SUVs, Dolce & Gabanna, Juicy Couture...
New money individuals are looked down upon by old money individuals. However, the biggest snobs are new money as they haven't received a proper education and don't have manners, so they become unbearable people.
Jenny (new money): Oh my god, look at that girl, what is she wearing! Someone get her a trash can, hahahah. Where is my Gucci?

Selena (old money) (thinking): What an attitude.

Write Anglo-Saxon Protestants.
Preppies are invariably WASPs, but not all WASPs are preppies.
1) The other dumbass who wrote a definition for this should learn how to spell. (its P-R-O-T-E-S-T-A-N-T)

2) It's difficult to find any type of person other than WASPs in Nantucket.

A great actress, one of the best of the 20th Century. She was elegant, beautiful and acted admirably. She married young to Prince Rainiero of Monaco, which was a pity as she stopped doing movies. She won an Academy Award (aka Oscar) for her performance in "A Country Girl". One of her best movies is "To Catch a Thief", opposite Cary Grant. She was a favorite of one of the best directors of all times, Alfred Hitchcock. If you don't know her, I would buy/rent one of her movies. She's an icon.

Sadly, most of the young generation only know her name due to the song by Mika, but don't know what a great personality that name has behind.
You don't know Grace Kelly? Seriously....? Go watch "To Catch a Thief" or "Rear Window" like, now.

A great brand that makes bright summer dresses and beachwear to die for. A classic.
1. She wore Lilly from head to toe: a Regan dress, beige McKim sandals and an Edie cardigan.

2. Many people consider Lilly Pulitzer the epitome of elegance nowadays, even placing the brand alongside legends like Herm├Ęs.

An extremely talented artist. Symbol of a new era. He was very enlightened, without doubt, but made several serious mistakes during his career. Paul McCartney always kept trying to shadow him, but all his efforts were in vain; John Lennon was just too big (not in the literal sense of the word, he was actually very skinny).

Lennon was killed by Mark David Chapman, a mentally ill man. Even though this man killed one of the greatest figures of all times, he had a great taste in literature; he loved The Catcher in the Rye which is one of the greatest books of all time written by one of the best authors of all time, J. D. Sallinger.

May John Lennon rest in peace.
I recommend buying any "Best of John Lennon" album. He's seriously great. Anyone who says the contrary is a motherfucking jealous n00b and should be automatically killed.

The other definition is utterly wrong. Here is a correct interpretation of a prep guy.

1. During the summer he is found in Nantucket or the Vineyard.
2. He wears Ralph Lauren, Lacoste, LL Bean, J Crew etc.
3. He wears mocs and beige trousers and pastel-colored poloshirts.
4. He's educated. Few are jerks. He's cultured.

He DOESN'T wear A&F, AE, Hollister, Old Navy, Aeropostale or any of those other "mall" stores

A prep guy isn't the jock who dates "cheerleaders" in high

school... he goes to a prep school in new england (Deerfield, Choate, Hotchkinss...etc.)
Sally: (seeing a handsome guy walk by in a mauve shirt, beige trousers and mocs) Look at that prep guy!
Jen: Yeah, I think he goes to that prep school in Connecticut.
