Too refined to marry for money alone, she renounced great wealth and ended her days in squalor, shunned or forgotten by her friends. Had Edith Wharton conceived her heroine today, Lily almost certainly would have met with a more upbeat fate, ditching her high principles, marrying Rosedale, her rich philistine suitor, and living on to enjoy all the perks a vast fortune can buy.
Sure, she would have been branded a gold digger -- a woman chilly and driven enough to date or wed a man expressly for his wealth -- but would she have cared? Today, that label has lost its power to banish the bearer to social Siberia, and along with it, much of its sting.
The gold digger is alive and well, thriving in a bottom-line, postfeminist culture, where marrying for money is no longer something that many women feel compelled to hide. There are mercenaries of every stripe -- the fastidiously groomed uptown real estate saleswoman, the party-prowling junior fashion editor or the serial bride, a group that includes Darcy LaPier, whose weird contemporary tale was splashed in the press last year after the death of her fourth husband, Mark Hughes, the Herbalife vitamin mogul.

In subsequent decades, other exotic personalities pursuing the same calling included Zsa Zsa Gabor, who flashed her diamonds and flaunted her multiple marriages to rich men on late night talk shows.
In the years since, the gold digger, while out in the open, seems to have slipped several notches on the flamboyance scale. One need only think of Darva Conger, the rangy blonde who married a millionaire she had never met on prime time television last year. When she discovered that her bridegroom was not all he claimed, the marriage was annulled.
In fiction, many contemporary gold diggers are burdened with a catalog of mundane guilts and fears, and their ambitions have shrunken in scope from the days of Lorelei Lee. Weaver, her character, Max, is shopworn, intent on reeling in her wealthy Mr. Right before age overtakes her and spoils her chances.
