Dedicated to all things beautiful—specifically baubles (well, it is that time of year for wish lists) and beauty (that is more than skin deep)—this issue is full of some of our favorite things. Michelle Pfeiffer, a true Hollywood icon, obviously falls into this category. After nearly four decades of mastering her craft, you would think she might be ready to rest a bit. But no, she continues to choose work that is powerful and impactful. With three amazing films released earlier this year, and this month’s Murder on the Orient Express, she shows no signs of stopping. She is still considered one of the world’s most beautiful women, and we couldn’t ask for a better cover subject to also help showcase the season’s sartorial richness. With sparkles aplenty this issue, we highlight another beauty, star-on-the-rise Eiza González, in gems galore! Hairstylist supreme Chris McMillan partnered with C fashion director Alison Edmond to create a beauty portfolio dusted in diamonds. Think big, bombshell hair combined with classic white shirts—a blank canvas against which the jewels truly pop. I have always thought of jewelry as an opportunity for infusing meaning into one’s style. Personally speaking, I have numerous pieces that are in heavy rotation, and I believe that they carry both my energy and the memories I’ve made while wearing them. When my daughters inherit said pieces one day, I’d like to think that they will be wearing the mementos I’ve acquired along life’s path. Speaking of paths, up-and-coming interior designer Carissa Duncan was looking for a less-traveled one when she sought respite in Carmel Valley. The home she created is a study in black and white, where organic forms mix with modern moments—an arresting juxtaposition with the natural landscape of Northern California. Turning south, we connect with sibling filmmakers Emmett and Brendan Malloy, who are bringing Joy Nicholson’s novel The Tribes of Palos Verdes to the big screen. Our behind-the-scenes portfolio, shot by Emmett, alludes to the complicated subtext at the heart of the film’s layered narrative, blended with a distinctively Californian surf culture unique unto itself. In this issue, we also highlight what’s new in California wine country, including the Barbara Bestor-designed Ashes & Diamonds winery and the Calistoga Motor Lodge and Spa. April Gargiulo, founder of cult beauty serum Vintner’s Daughter, then takes us on a tour of her family’s vineyard and invites us to join her and a few friends for a celebratory harvest luncheon. Thankfully, these businesses were not harmed in the devastating fires that swept through the region, but our thoughts continue to be with everyone in Northern California who has been affected. Please join us in helping our friends by continuing to support their endeavors, from buying local wines and products to planning weekend getaways at area hotels. Sonoma and Napa, you are in our hearts.

“It’s wonderful to work with energetic people,” says Alistair Taylor-Young of photographing “Portrait of a Lady,” p.108. With 25 years in the industry, the British lensman has shot for the likes of Condé Nast Traveler and Apple. The Phone Book, his first tome, is filled with fine-art images taken on his smartphone. C SPOTS • Two Bunch Palms, a cool place to stay in Desert Hot Springs • Talesai in Studio City for Thai food • Hot 8 Yoga in Beverly Hills; Francesca Asumah is the best teacher I have ever come across
Angie Silvy “When I get the chance to shoot in wine country, I always say ‘yes,’” says Angie Silvy of photographing “Harvest Noon,” p.44. “It was the perfect setting for the luncheon, under the olive trees and with a view of endless vineyards,” she adds. During her 16 years of professional work, the Australianborn, San Francisco-based photographer has amassed a client roster that includes Jimmy Choo, Tory Burch and Paul Smith, and has been featured in publications spanning Martha Stewart Weddings to Cosmopolitan.

Carissa Duncan “Being a young entrepreneur necessitates vulnerability. It’s amplified when opening up about how I live; but the creative process requires leaning into it,” says Carissa Duncan. The Carmel Valley resident, who launched her design firm Salt + Bones in 2014, focuses on boutique hospitality, restaurant and residential interiors. She designed her own home, featured in “Lay of the Land,” p.118. C SPOTS • Carmel Beach is my toy schnauzer Ginger’s favorite spot on the Monterey Peninsula • The martini at The Progress in San Francisco, which has a constantly evolving menu • Lilify, whose owners are big supporters of the art-and-craft movement happening on the peninsula
“I first talked with Dominique Ansel about opening his debut restaurant during The World’s 50 Best Restaurant awards—I could hardly wait to see what he’d do,” says writer Michalene Busico, who shares her findings in “Rising to the Occasion,” p.80. Busico, whose previous posts include food editor at The New York Times and deputy features editor at the Los Angeles Times, grows Syrah grapes to make wine in Malibu, where she resides. C SPOTS • A meditative massage in the Wellness Shed at the Native hotel in Malibu • A beach hike from Zuma to Leo Carrillo • Augustine Wine Bar in Sherman Oaks, L.A.’s most underrated restaurant
“Writing for C allows me to explore my home as though I’m a visitor, with fresh eyes and a sense of openness to all of the charm the terrain has to offer,” says C editorial assistant Ericka Franklin, who has spent a decade working as a red carpet reporter in Los Angeles, contributing to WWD, Glamour, Variety and InStyle. When not writing, she enjoys creating watercolor portraits. C SPOTS • My Two Cents on Pico Boulevard has the most authentic-tasting vegetarian po’ boy • Wayfarers Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes for self reflection and a stunning view • I Love Lulu in Long Beach for nourishing hair treatments with organic ingredients

The Social House at VENTANA BIG SUR hosts the resort’s myriad activities.

WH - opener
VENTANA BIG SUR, AN ALILA RESORT
The Great Outdoors Big Sur’s majestic coastline, with its confluence of sea, sky and mountainous redwood forest, has long lured the curious and creative, beckoning travelers from around the world. But that all came to a standstill last winter when mudslides transformed the rugged paradise into an inaccessible island of sorts. Now, after months of repair, the iconic community on California’s Central Coast is back, with a slew of indulgent offerings.
Leading the way is the multimilliondollar renovation of the area’s beloved Ventana Big Sur, recently reopened as part of Alila Hotels and Resorts. Executive chef Paul Corsentino’s The Sur House features a newly expanded terrace and a 10,000-bottle wine cellar; guest rooms and suites with refreshed interiors by BraytonHughes Design Studios come complete with private balconies and patios; while sound baths, falconry,
charcoal drawing and other niche experiences are also on offer. The slightly more adventurous can enjoy glamping in one of Ventana’s 15 safari-style tents, housekeeping service included, or take a dip in the Mountain Pool, clothing optional. Cap it off with a glass from the Central Coast cellar and enjoy the view. Rooms from $625. 48123 Highway 1, Big Sur, 831.667.2331; ventanabigsur.com. • GILLIAN KOENIG

WHAT’S HOT GOOP LAB greenhouse. From near right: Goop x CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Marchapp ankle boot. A fully functioning in-store kitchen.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s childhood ramblings led her to the Brentwood Country Mart’s candy store, and now the Goop founder has retraced her steps to open her own boutique in this neighborhood haunt. The ever-curious actor, whose pioneering health adventures sparked a website that has become a lifestyle brand, is stocking the shelves of her Goop Lab with an edited selection of apothecary lines, fashion finds, furniture, wellness elixirs and even a limited-edition shoe collaboration with longtime friend Christian Louboutin. The airy 1,300-square-foot space dreamed up by design team Roman and Williams—the minds behind Ace Hotel New York and Paltrow’s personal residences— resembles a Westside bungalow, complete with a gathering spot for cooking classes and demos held around a cream-colored Lacanche range. “We started with the communal aspects,” says Paltrow. Roman and Williams co-founder Robin Standefer says the shop’s greenhouse, kitchen, apothecary and living room foster “respite and conversation.” Paltrow adds, “The beauty of the Country Mart is that even though some of the stores have changed, the small-town feel and sense of community is the same.” 225 26th St., Ste. 37, S.M., 310-260-4702; goop.com. GREG BANKS, one of the vintage aficionados profiled in TALES OF ENDEARMENT.
FINDERS Keepers What’s old is new again to photographer, writer and stylist Natalie Joos and the vintage clothing aficionados featured in her debut book, Tales of Endearment: Modern Vintage Lovers and Their Extraordinary Wardrobes (powerHouse Books, $50), a companion to her cult website of the same name. An inspiring collection of photos and stories, the new tome peeks into the personalities and one-of-a-kind closets of 59 vintage connoisseurs, historians and enthusiasts. As for Joos’ favorite L.A. source? “Cannonball & Tilly,” she says of Laura Kranitz’s Little Ethiopia shop. “It’s affordable, fun and she knows her stuff.”

THE FOUNDER OF CULT BEAUTY BRAND VINTNER’S DAUGHTER HOSTS A LEISURELY LUNCH FOR HER ENTREPRENEURIAL FRIENDS It’s one of those gorgeous autumn days in Napa Valley when the grapes seem to perspire in the sun and the air is heavy with their sweetness. High above Gargiulo Vineyards’ 575 OVX vineyard, on a patio with cascading views, April Gargiulo wanders in front of the dressed table, adjusting a plate here, straightening a tablecloth there, tweaking the wildflowers. The smell of chef Nash Cognetti’s roasting vegetables wafts through the air. Soon Gargiulo’s friends—women who own businesses in fashion, beauty and wine—begin arriving

Until today, they’ve yet to mix socially, but they are all part of a likeminded circle of women that Gargiulo has collected over the past four years while running the beauty brand Vintner’s Daughter, which has a single product, the 22-ingredient Active Botanical Serum.

Gargiulo, who comes from old Napa Valley stock: Her mother’s cousins Barney and Belle Rhodes were instrumental in the U.S. wine industry’s revival in the 1960s. She also ran the family vineyards for eight years before she decided to start Vintner’s Daughter. The idea was to take the vintner’s approach to refinement and translate it to skincare. Applying maceration’s beauty equivalent, effleurage, Gargiulo uses infusions from nutrient-dense plants and leaves, in contrast to the majority of mainstream
natural skincare lines, which use inexpensive extracts and powders. Sourcing was also key: “Every ingredient is organic or wild crafted, coming from pristine sources,” Gargiulo notes. For example, some of her cypress is collected by basket off a coastal cliff in Spain. The resulting serum (which takes three weeks to make) presents a full spectrum of vitamins, antioxidants and nutrients for the skin, and is designed to combat inflammation, brighten, balance and tone, and help with fine lines and wrinkles.

The late Interview editor Ingrid Sischy counted Andy Warhol’s screen prints of Carolina Herrera among his best: “You really feel like he paid attention to the portraits of Carolina with the amount of paint he used, the colors he chose and the care to detail,” Sischy wrote in a 2004 volume by Alexandra Kotur devoted to the Venezuelan-born fashion designer. Similarly, Herrera herself has worked to perfect one particular subject over the years: the white shirt. Now, for her Fall 2017 collection, she has again found herself poring over the details of the crisp cotton wardrobe mainstay to whip up fresh new designs. Headlining is a button-down with a Peter Pan collar outlined by intricate white embroidery. “I’ve worn white shirts since I was very young,” says Herrera. “I started with the Peter Pan collar with my uniform from school,” she adds. Since then, Herrera says she’s donned a plethora of styles, and includes a one-shoulder interpretation and a top encircled with a delicate built-in capelet among her latest offerings. The new designs will join the pantheon of blouses Herrera’s worn over the years for everything from horseback riding and tennis to evening galas. “A white shirt is my security blanket—it works for every occasion in my life!” she confesses. 226 N.

MANE ADDRESS This year, the fast-changing L.A. hair scene has welcomed a cadre of new salons owned by industry elite.
LOCKS on Lock Adir Abergel, the sought-after celebrity hairstylist who travels the globe with A-listers like Reese Witherspoon, Emma Watson and Kristen Stewart, is also creative director of the hair product line Virtue (virtuelabs.com)—“the stuff is magic!” he says—and co-owner of Adir x Lelet NY (leletny.com), a collection of architectural hair accessories of his own design. “A lot of accessories skew young and kitschy—our line offers something
sophisticated and refined,” he says. Here, Abergel shares his go-to tips: • Less is more. But using simple and chic hair accessories in groups of three takes the look to a very editorial place. • Choose your hair accessory as you’d choose your jewelry, to suit your skin tone and hair color. • A well-placed hair accessory can add detail and dimension to a hairstyle. It can make it romantic or edgy or sweet.

For those wishing to drop a dress size, the Ballancer Pro adaptive compression system offers hope in the form of lymphatic drainage. “It is like wringing out a washcloth…the mass is lessened without the fluid,” says Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Gabriel Chiu. The process also reduces water retention, bloating, inflammation and lymphedema, and alleviates after-workout soreness in athletes so they can train without pain. Besides treating cellulite, Ballancer Pro shrinks cells and enhances their firmness and elasticity, resulting in a firmer, younger-looking you. “There’s a noticeable difference after one treatment,” says Chiu. “Optimal results are achieved after six.” $200/45 min. 9454 Wilshire Blvd., B.H., 310-888-8087; beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com.

A selection of D’LISA CREAGER’s signature copper-wire sculptures (clockwise from top left): Medusa, Moonwalker, Lion’s Mane and a work in progress. Prices upon request.
After attending an art workshop on wire looping taught by artist/educator Aiko Cuneo (daughter of Ruth Asawa, a famed wire sculptor and student of Josef Albers) 10 years ago, L.A. artist D’lisa Creager was compelled to explore the medium herself. Since then, her mesmerizing large-scale sculptures of looped copper wire, admired for their organic intricacy, have captured the attention of fans such as antiques dealer Joel Chen, designer Windsor Smith and architect Leslie Dowling. A book of hand-drawn organisms by 19th-century zoologist Ernst Haeckel inspired her latest works, in which the academic (she holds a doctorate in social psychology) seeks to “capture the complexity of creatures”; California’s northern coast is also an enduring muse. “It’s hard not to be inspired by such peace and natural beauty,” says Creager. dlisacreagersculpture.com. • KERSTIN CZARRA

MADCAP’s shima aji sashimi.
Menu - opener
A Chef for All Seasons Chef Ron Siegel’s career is a veritable highlights reel of San Francisco restaurants: Michael Mina, the Dining Room at the Ritz Carlton, Masa’s, Charles Nob Hill— he’s run them all, not to mention a stint as opening sous chef at The French Laundry. In August, Siegel finally opened a place of his own called Madcap, in San Anselmo. “The approach and technique are not different,” Siegel says, comparing the menu
at the casual Madcap to his previous tony gigs. “But some of the ingredients are. It’s a special, eccentric restaurant.” Here, Siegel focuses on produce and what he considers the Bay Area’s “40 seasons,” as well as his signature nuanced, Japanese cooking style. A sashimi comprises translucent shima aji (striped jack mackerel) with marinated seaweed, a tangy puree of umeboshi plum, shaved
radish, sweet melon and shiso salt. Rabbit tortelloni are filled with miso-braised meat, chanterelles and Crescenza cheese, and garnished with leeks and Parmesan foam. Even simple corn soup is elevated with a pine nut crumble. Order à la carte, or settle in for the eight-course tasting menu ($80). 198 Sir Francis Drake Blvd., San Anselmo, 415-453-9898; madcapmarin.com. • MICHALENE BUSICO

“Ashes & Diamonds started as a love letter to Napa Valley pioneers of the midcentury,” says founder Kashy Khaledi of his new winery, a place deeply dialed into the currents of food and wine culture, located in the Oak Knoll District of Napa. The former multimedia executive tapped L.A. architect Barbara Bestor to create an environment that incorporates Khaledi’s eclectic passions and inspirations, ranging from 1960s wineries to his interest in California’s historic Case Study Houses.

How much of an impact will Dominique Ansel have on the L.A. dining scene? When the endlessly inventive New York pastry chef was in town recently to check on the progress of 189 by Dominique Ansel—his first full restaurant and the largest project in his growing global empire—he stopped by local diner stalwart Du-par’s for a breakfast interview and Instagrammed my basic stack of pancakes. “Likely where our team will end up when we are looking for 24hr joints during the #LA opening,” he posted. That pancake shot now has more than 3,500 likes. There is a reason Ansel has such an ardent following. His creations—a chiffon cake so light it arrives inside a balloon; a “cookie shot” holding a swig of milk; the famous Cronut, which still draws long lines four years after he invented it—are individually astonishing, yet share a similar, baked-in creative genius. Earlier this year, he was named 2017’s best pastry chef at The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards. Now the globe will be watching what the master of confections can do with a full kitchen. Ansel has been working on 189 for three years (it is set to open in November), and as he did with branches of his bakery in Tokyo and London, he started by studying the city. “The food, the people,

the culture,” he says. “Los Angeles is very different from New York.” His new restaurant, complete with a downstairs bakery, will be at the Grove, the manicured Fairfax shopping center. The site— at the address 189—is a light-filled space with an open kitchen and outdoor terrace. A cloud-like art installation made with fresh baby’s breath flowers will hover in the main dining room; it was inspired by daydreaming, and Ansel hopes it makes his guests feel “light” and “comfortable.”
Similarly, when he creates a dish, he often begins with a feeling rather than a flavor. “It’s a different way of thinking when it comes to cooking food,” he explains. “I want to create an emotional connection.” His menu will be specific to L.A. and include an ode to California citrus in the form of a Continued on p.126

December of 1988 was my Tequila Sunrise moment. Inspired by Michelle Pfeiffer’s character in the crime thriller, Jo Ann Vallenari, the sleek and gorgeous manager of an Italian restaurant, I bought taupe stilettos (which sat in my closet). I wrestled with a round brush and a hair dryer. I daydreamed about driving down Pacific Coast Highway to Manhattan Beach in an Alfa Romeo convertible, listening to Crowded House, to meet a mysterious former drug dealer who looked like vintage Mel Gibson. Classic cinema it was not, but it was peak Pfeiffer: Sharp, strong, sexy, vulnerable and impossible not to look at. Thirty years later, in two high-profile movies—Darren Aronofsky’s psychological thriller Mother! and Kenneth Branagh’s take on Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express—you still can’t tear your eyes off of her, but not for the reasons you might expect. As Caroline Hubbard, the famous “husband hunter” Christie created in her most beloved mystery, Pfeiffer looks incredible: In a series of bias-cut ’30s-style noir dresses, it’s inconceivable that she’s 59 years old. And, as “woman” in Mother!, you stare for entirely different reasons. “Well, I think Mother! is the most disturbing film I’ve ever seen,” Pfeiffer says, laughing, over the phone from her home in Northern California. “It hit me on such a visceral level, in ways that I don’t even really understand.” It’s hard to meet a man or woman whose most formative movie-watching years were the ’80s and early ’90s who didn’t have a crush on at least one of Pfeiffer’s memorable on-screen personalities. Maybe it was the ice-cold Elvira

from Scarface? Or the lounge-singing Susie from The Fabulous Baker Boys? Or the disheveled Sukie in The Witches of Eastwick? Or her Oscar-nominated turn as a seducer’s unwitting prey in Dangerous Liaisons? Or Catwoman (Catwoman!), Batman’s flawless foil? Funny and serious, fragile and fierce, she was in everything and good in everything. And everybody was a little bit in love with her. “Wow, thank you! Wow,” Pfeiffer says. Either she is flustered by the compliment, or acting like she’s flustered. I can’t tell. She’s that good. Over the last few years, Pfeiffer has emerged from what seems like a happy, self-imposed Hollywood exile. A lifelong Californian, born in Santa Ana, crowned Miss Orange County in 1978, she spent decades in Los Angeles before she and her husband, prolific television writer and producer David E. Kelley, moved with their two children to the Bay Area 15 years ago. “I didn’t really hit pause with work until my kids were school-age,” she says. “There were five years when I didn’t work at all. I sort of don’t pay attention to time. I didn’t realize that I hadn’t worked in years. When the kids were really small, I could take them with me—it was complicated, but David and I managed it with a lot of juggling. Once they started school, it didn’t feel right to leave them for extended periods or take them out of school and upset their routine. Then we moved and that became consuming. We started over completely.” The initial reason for their exodus was to find a slower-paced life within commuting distance to Los Angeles for occasional projects. But in retrospect, she realizes that a shift was happening in the way celebrities were treated, both in public and by the media, that would make living her famously private life in L.A. more challenging. “It was very different back then. There wasn’t all this social media. It used to be that if you had a film coming out or there was a scandal of some kind, if there was some heat on you, the paparazzi would pick up your trail and hound you, but for the most part they would leave you alone. Then it got to the point where they would follow you for no reason. I remember distinctly when it shifted, and it was

right at the time we were moving. And I think that it’s been really good for me. They’re not interested in me anymore. “I’m an empty nester now,” she continues, explaining her return to a heavier Hollywood workload. “I’m freed up to work a lot. It’s really great to see them become adults, but you never stop being their mother. When I would go down and see my mother when I was in my 20s, I never understood why she would cry when I left. ‘Mom, why are you crying when I leave? I’ve been out of the house for 10 years!’ Now, I get it. When am I going to stop calling them kids? ‘You kids!’ My mom’s never stopped.” Easing back into a more public life, Pfeiffer took a few smaller, independent film roles, and played a couple of memorable villains in the film adaptations of Hairspray and the Neil Gaiman fantasy Stardust. But the rumblings of a full Michelle Pfeiffer comeback started in 2014, when she was name-checked by Bruno Mars and Vance Joy in two Top 40 hits. Then, earlier this year, she played Ruth Madoff, opposite Robert De Niro, in the Bernie Madoff biopic The Wizard of Lies for HBO. It was a role that required her to play older, which is a big ask from a woman widely touted for her beauty, in an industry that prizes youth above almost all else. “I’m an actress, but I’m also a woman who struggles with aging just like the next person,” she says. To play an older woman “takes an adjustment,” she admits. “But then you get over it. Initially it’s a bit of a shock. Everything you would avoid, you do: certain ways that you avoid putting on your makeup, things like that, you just lean into it. But that’s my job. In real life, Ruth Madoff looks younger than I look in the film. I may have leaned into it too much!” In Murder on the Orient Express, she also plays older, as a wealthy widow who is, like the other passengers, a murder suspect. It’s a character that complements Pfeiffer’s varied strengths, including her femme fatale looks and her comic timing. “What you look for in a role is range; where there’s humor and levity and then, where does it turn? You want to build to those moments,” she says. “That was one of the driving forces for me coming aboard. Continued on p.126

Emmett and Brendan Malloy took a roundabout path to get to Hollywood, despite the fact that their childhood home in Hancock Park was just a couple blocks from Paramount Pictures’ studios. Their dad was an urban contractor who laid sewer pipes and water mains. “We grew up with shovels and brooms in our hands cleaning up the streets after him,” says Emmett, 45, the older of the two brothers by a year and a half. After college, Emmett found a job at a company that made movie trailers, and Brendan later joined him there.
C 104 NOVEMBER 2017
They parlayed that experience into actual filmmaking, creating shorts featuring a ragtag group of surfers including their cousins Chris and Keith Malloy,
who at that point were on the pro circuit, and singer Jack Johnson, who appointed Emmett as his manager (the brothers now run their production office out of a bungalow on Larchmont Boulevard, where Emmett and Johnson’s Brushfire Records are also headquartered). Those early surf reels paved the way for music videos (The White Stripes and Vampire Weekend) and big-budget spots for the likes of Nike and Google.

“I remember watching Jen [Garner] hit balls on the court next to us prepping to film this. It was so fun to watch her getting in character before a really intense scene. Some of the words that came out of her mouth that day took away the ‘girl next door’ moniker for good,” says Emmett.

into the Malloys’ repertoire, but the script, which had been kicking around Hollywood for almost 20 years, struck a chord. It’s the story of a family who moves to California and starts to unravel: After the father (Justin Kirk) leaves, the mother (Jennifer Garner) plunges into a drug-fueled depression, dragging her son, Jim (Cody Fern), down with her and stranding his twin sister, Medina (Maika Monroe), who seeks refuge in the ocean. Sure, there are surf scenes, but that’s far from the main thrust of the piece. “People are going to think, ‘Oh the Malloys and surfing, I bet you it will be kind of nice,’” says Emmett of the film, which also features Alicia Silverstone, Elisabeth Röhm and Joely Fisher. “But this is a really heavy-duty movie.” The film is narrated by Monroe, who grew up in Santa Barbara and was a professional kiteboarder before becoming one of Hollywood’s most exciting ingénues. “This story is very close to my heart,” she says. “I felt an immediate connection to Medina. I keep my sanity by being in nature, the ocean. It’s a crazy world, and everyone needs a source that grounds them.” To prepare for the intensity of the story, the brothers met up with locals of the affluent community of Palos Verdes to ask them what it was like growing up there—drugs, sex, drinking and all. “We grew up in a similar community and were exposed to a lot of this at a very early age, way before our parents knew it was happening,” admits Brendan. Sadly, the Malloys’ father passed away just before they started filming, leaving the brothers in an uncharacteristically raw state. “We’re a super close family,” says Emmett. “So Brendan and I were kind of emotionally with [the actors] as they delved into these dark performances.” They shot the film over the course of 23 days at a rundown house in San Pedro on a shoestring budget. “We’ve made commercials that cost twice as much as this whole movie,” says Emmett. “There were no star trailers. If Jen [Garner] wasn’t up for a couple scenes, she would just pull up a foldable chair and eat trail mix like anybody else.” Bound by a strong esprit de corps, they also turned to members of their own tribe to pitch in: longtime friend Robbie Brenner was the director of photography; Emmett’s wife, photographer Hilary Walsh, helped with wardrobe styling; Continued on p.126

feel inspired by them and I like to send the message to other women that we can be stronger together.” The 27-year-old Mexico City native, who rose to fame as a teenager singing and acting in telenovelas, has a commanding presence that defies any genre Hollywood may try to place her in. “Diversity often falls into a category where we are seen as something specific, and I would like to bridge that,” she says. “I have no issue playing a Latina—I’m doing that now, but shedding light in a positive way and mocking these
stereotypes we have of Latina women.” Ultimately, González believes in “building cool, relevant characters,” which she has done, most recently as the fearless, gunslinging Darling, girlfriend of Jon Hamm’s Buddy, in Baby Driver. “I’m a strong, independent, self-made woman, and she is too,” says González. “I’m also endlessly romantic and believe in ride-or-die love.” Currently without a real-life partner in crime, “I do fall in love easily,” says González, though she cites the upside to singledom: “I get to focus on work.” • GILLIAN KOENIG
Up-and-coming interior designer Carissa Duncan finds her way home in an organic modern Carmel Valley retreat

PHOTOGRAPHY BY LAURE JOLIET WRITTEN BY MELISSA GOLDSTEIN
CARISSA DUNCANâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open living space is outfitted with organic furniture pieces including a Mountain Chair by L.A.-based PLANEFURNITURE. On the mantle sits a painting by Duncan. Penatracion by Cuban-born artist JUANMANUEL ALONSO hangs in the corner near a sisal rope sculpture by Mexican artist MARCELA DIAZ.

Outside, a redwood table designed by Duncan in the style of Donald Judd and built by her father is the site of many dinner parties. Below: A pair of sawtooth lamps by PLANEfurniture sits atop a bedside table of Duncanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s design. The bed is dressed with SOCIETA LIMONTA linens.

Clockwise from left: “Working in design, I am so overstimulated with concepts and ideas that I like my space and my person to be really neutral,” says Duncan. A small, evocative photograph on the mantle was a local find. Duncan designed the intimate steel table in the dining area.
Feature - tbd “It’s a different pace of life out here,” says designer Carissa Duncan of the reason she settled in her 1970s-style ranch house overlooking Carmel Valley, rather than Carmel-by-the-Sea proper, where her firm’s office is located. “Not that anything out here is fast-paced, by any means,” she hastens to add. Duncan is intimately familiar with the local speed limits; she grew up on and around the Monterey Peninsula. But it was only after a stint as director of design at Yountville art, furnishings and wine collective Maisonry Napa Valley that she returned to the area in 2014. Here she founded Salt + Bones, an integrated design studio (named in part for the essential mineral’s propensity for enhancement) that specializes in hospitality and residential interiors. Commissions came in quick succession, including a redesign of the Big Sur retreat center Esalen Institute. “It’s exciting but overwhelming to go from a one-woman show to a team of almost 10,” says Duncan.
Feature - tbd Clockwise from above: In the kitchen, Duncan covered the existing white cabinets with steel panels. A Half Moon Mirror by BEN & AJA BLANC is a focal point of the living room. Duncan’s serene office overlooks the valley.
When she happened upon the residence (originally built by the winemaking family behind the local estate Joyce Vineyards) while house hunting in October 2016, she saw the home, with its vaulted ceilings, warm Saltillo tiles and big west-facing deck, as a much-needed retreat. The half-moon window over the front door clinched the deal. “Without

and organic modern furniture. A Ben & Aja Blanc Half Moon Mirror with pewter-colored silk and jute fringe hangs above a low-slung black couch in the living room, where a softedged plaster-finished cocktail table by Faye Toogood is set with a pair of “rough bespoke” goblet vases by Belgian artist Arno Declercq. “I’m really
into texture,” says Duncan, whose roster of projects currently includes a highconcept, Union Square-adjacent hotel and in-house restaurant in San Francisco. “I like things to feel good; that’s where I invest my money.” Nearby, a woven sisal rope sculpture by Mexican artist Marcela Diaz hangs in front of a sliding black barn door
that separates Duncan’s office, master bath and bedroom from the open living space. The designer’s muted blush bedding offers an isolated moment of color, a sweetness tempered by the toughness of a vintage leather gym mat that hangs as the headboard; a custom steel entry table works as a lone nightstand. “I can get away with that now since it’s just me

Feature - tbd circle of like-minded locals who share her desire to see the region reconnect to its creative, bohemian past by establishing businesses that are rooted in a higher standard of design, as opposed to kitschy, tourist-focused galleries. “What has drawn people to us is doing what we’re
doing where we’re doing it,” she says. The patio is also where Duncan begins her day with an espresso and ends it with quiet contemplation—a natural inclination, given her cosmic leanings. “I come home, lie down on a chaise, look at the stars and just enjoy.” •
HARVEST NOON CONTINUED FROM P.45
But at this lunch, the conversation skitters over the beauty talk as the gals patter on about classic working-mom issues: schools, childcare, business complications, tricks and tips. They dine on rosemary chicken, figs with lavender honey, halibut rolled in herbes de Provence and raw chocolate pudding—a menu created with only 22 ingredients, a call out to the serum’s composition. Meanwhile, Gargiulo puts on her vintner’s hat and serves her family’s Wood Ranch chardonnay, smooth Money Road Ranch cabernet, Aprile sangiovese and G Major 7 cabernet. As the afternoon deepens and the sun begins to fade, the lunch continues, unhurried, just like the synthesis of Gargiulo’s own product. “We’re in it for the love of the game,” she says. “Things take time to make them the best. It’s a very old-world idea, but that’s how I grew up.” vintnersdaughter .com. • ELIZABETH KHURI CHANDLER

tailoring go a long way for a woman in her 50s. “I like simple. I like to be comfortable. When I go to fittings now and they put these dresses on me from the runway, I can’t fit into them—and I’m not big—so it makes me feel bad,” she says. “I’m still a sexual being. I want to stay current but, again, not try to appear younger. Because that looks silly. Sometimes, I’ll put on a dress and I think, I look OK. But then I realize: Oh, this was meant for a younger person. I keep seeing Emma Stone’s face on top of this dress! I find that balance gets increasingly tough.” The balancing act of preserving your appearance without betraying your dignity is not lost on Pfeiffer, who implies that she has experimented, with some trial and error, to find it. “I wish high definition had never been invented,” she says. “I see some things on television, and I think, ‘Why would I want to see that? I don’t see that in real life.’ There’s so much pressure on women not to look their age, and that adds to it. Yeah, you want to be the best version of yourself, but there is a line you can cross, and you look in the mirror and think: that’s actually someone else.” On-screen, Pfeiffer uses her sometimes icy beauty to great effect, especially when it’s played against dewy co-stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Daisy Ridley. And her voice, which is always a slow, velvety monotone, can still send chills down your spine. She appears to be embracing the experience and wisdom that comes from being famous for 30 years, and playing characters like Hubbard, who are described as an “aging actress,” with a knowing wink. “Everyone knows how old you are,” she says, matter-of-factly, but with a touch of defiance. ”Who are you fooling, really?” •

they even pulled a Jack Johnson song for the soundtrack. Having waited almost two decades to create another full-length film (their first, the snowboarding-themed Out Cold, came out in 2001), it was “super critical for us to make a great movie and make this script our own,” says Emmett. In the end, The Tribes of Palos Verdes is as much a story about the dark side of California as it is about two native sons unafraid to jump in the deep end. •

C Insider KRISTINA HOLEY
Skincare savant Kristina Holey was first drawn to the East Bay for its slower pace, close proximity to San Francisco and cultural diversity. “There’s an amazing community of inspiring, creative people [in Berkeley and Oakland] that we call family,” says the Ojai-born facialist, whose holistic, eponymous Tendernob studio has earned her international renown. Between spells in Paris and New York, Holey has called the East Bay home for more than 10 years, on and off. Here, she shares her beloved Berkeley hangouts. • Marie Veronique’s skincare shop on Solano Avenue, which I found when I was looking for someone to talk “skin” with. We have built a strong relationship over the last few years, and we just launched our latest seven-piece line in September. marieveronique.com. • Leaves & Flowers is a beautiful workshop where Anna Morton and Emily Erb create handcrafted herbal infusions and premium smallbatch teas. leavesandflowers.com. • Standard Fare in West Berkeley for local, healthy, delicious meals.

A YouTube personality by the time she was 10 years old, Amanda Steele became intimately acquainted with demographics and analytics at a precocious age. But it’s her telltale use of the word “like” that acts as a reminder of just how young the Huntington Beach native behind tween phenomenon MakeupbyMandy24 actually is. Now 18, Steele has amassed nearly 2.9 million fashion- and beauty-obsessed subscribers, leading to a modeling contract with American Eagle Outfitters for its Fall 2017 campaign. The influencer also recently joined season two of the Hulu series Freakish, in which she plays Hailey, a high school student battling a zombie invasion. “I’m used to being in front of the camera, but it’s a lot more fun to completely transform,” says Steele, who launched her makeup tutorial YouTube channel in 2010. Still, she points out, the difference between “reality” content and fantasy isn’t as big a leap as it may seem: “People want to watch your YouTube videos because they feel like they know you,” she says. “It’s definitely a balance of…how you would act, but tailored to knowing that people are watching.” Steele recently moved to Los Angeles to support her acting and fashion design aspirations. And while she’s known to indulge in the occasional digital detox, she remains devoted to her online audience: “I want to make sure that I’m being the person that they still want to follow over time.” • LINDZI SCHARF
