Welcome to the Hollywood issue…albeit an unconventional approach to the topic. We’ve sidestepped the typical red carpet reporting for quirkier stories and information that you may not have read before. Nathalie Atkinson’s dishy interview with star L.A. makeup artist Evan Richardson gives you a sneak peek into the heyday of Vogue shoots and Studio 54 parties. He’s one of the most important makeup artists of the past 50 years.
Our historian Jeffery Smith shares the story of Anna May Wong, an actress in the 1930s, who was the muse for Anna Sui’s Fall 2014 runway show in New York City. Wong was a trailblazer who acted alongside Marlene Dietrich and Douglas Fairbanks, forging the way to break down racial barriers on the silver screen.
And it is no surprise that Bruce Weber was one of the first photographers to discover rugby star Nick Youngquest. The charming Australian athlete is the face (and body) of Paco Rabanne’s new Invictus scent, a smash in Europe and Asia last year. It won’t be long until Hollywood directors discover Youngquest. He definitely has that ‘itʼ factor. I hope you enjoy the issue.
