Two new exhibitions, “Cartier Design: A Living Legacy” and “Cartier and Women,” feature stunning jewels from the archives of the French jewelry maisonBY CHRISTINA OHLY EVANS
March marked the opening of “Cartier Design: A Living Legacy,” a dazzling retrospective of the maison’s most iconic creations that ran through May 14 at Mexico City’s Museo Jumex. The strikingly spare David Chipperfield–designed museum is the perfect backdrop for the collection of 160 objects that were last exhibited at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in 1999 and offer unique insights into Cartier’s strong cultural ties to Mexico as well as its timeless savoir-faire.
The show was meticulously edited by local design curator Ana Elena Mallet with the guidance of Cartier’s Pierre Rainero. Drawing on the maison’s extensive archives, the pieces selected for this decades-in-the-making exhibition include unexpected jewels, timepieces, accessories and decorative objects that were once worn by the likes of Mexican diva and Cartier devotee María Félix and Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont, the famed namesake of the Santos wristwatch.
With help from Rainero’s extensive archival knowledge, Mallet culled from more than 3,000 historical pieces to create a show that resonates with Mexican and Latin American audiences in particular. Noted Mexican architect Frida Escobedo created the scenography for the exhibition. On that beautifully set stage, emblematic pieces designed for Félix—including a 178.2-carat snake necklace from 1968 and a crocodile necklace composed of 1,023 brilliant-cut fancy intense yellow diamonds with ruby and emerald cabochon eyes—are among the collection standouts. As with so many innovative Cartier designs, these lavish necklaces were made to be worn separately, as brooches, or to be used as decorative table ornaments.
Equally impressive is the selection of ornate turn-of-the-century tiaras, a 1920s Tutti Frutti bracelet once owned by Mrs. Cole Porter, bold platinum and diamond bangles circa 1934, and a unique scarab belt buckle with touches of gold and blue Egyptian faience. The accompanying sketches in graphite and gouache are exquisite, too, and provide a rare look at the creative process throughout the
decades. “The main angle of this exhibition is the journey of Cartier style,” explains Rainero. “Beyond the pleasure of seeing these beau tiful pieces, the show illustrates the different design evolutions from the beginning of the maison up to present day.”
Half a world away, the Hong Kong Palace Museum unveiled “Cartier and Women,” an even more comprehensive show of some 300 pieces that shine a light on the influence of Chinese aesthetics on global fashion and design. On view through August 14, the exhibition is divided into themes including Royal and Aristocratic Women: Elegance and Prestige, which examines the role these women played in Cartier’s 19th-century designs.
The second section—New Women: Breaking with Tradition—sees a 20th-century move toward technological advancement in design as well as gender equality, with Cartier’s first female creative director, Jeanne Toussaint, firmly at the helm. Toussaint was a stylish trendsetter first credited with the iconic Panthère design, and the show features one of the mai son’s brooches from her time that was commissioned for the Duchess of Windsor.
The influence of Chinese art and culture—as well as design from other parts of the world—is seen in Women: Cross-cultural Inspirations, where such pieces as a yin-yang pendant from 1919 and a strand of vibrant jadeite beads from 1934 are emblematic of time and place. Perhaps the most alluring part of this impossibly glittering amassment is the fourth and final section, Influential Women: Glamorous Legends. With a look at Cartier’s relationships with the stars of stage and screen from the 1950s to the present, bespoke pieces from the collections of Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Carina Lau and Brigitte Lin—to name just a few of the maison’s powerful patrons—are guaranteed to both surprise and delight. ■An installation from “Cartier and Women” in Hong Kong A sketch of a scarab belt buckle incorporating two pieces of Egyptian faience
Italian label Emporio Sirenuse is collaborating with U.K.-based charity Elephant Family, which is dedicated to protecting endangered wildlife and their habitats. Proceeds from a collection of resort wear and tabletop pieces will be donated to the organization. Ceramic plates and servingware, tablecloths, place mats, pillows and other objects feature botanical and jungle patterns and lively colors. “A hopeful celebration of natural harmonies, this collaboration symbolizes our deep love of India’s magnificent heritage and our commitment to preserving its unique beauty,” says Emporio Sirenuse founder Carla Sersale.
BLUE JEAN BABIES
Two beloved brands launch denim collectionsBY NATASHA WOLFF
Founded in 2016 by Molly Howard, Meredith Melling and Valerie Macaulay, stripes-focused brand La Ligne recently launched a threesilhouette denim collection named for each of the brand’s founders. The label’s approach to denim follows the same philosophy as the main collection, designing elevated essentials that quickly become closet staples. The Molly (high-rise, non-stretch, straight-leg), Valerie (high-rise skinny in super-soft, super-stretch cotton) and Meredith (high-rise, cropped, flare) styles pair well with the brand’s signature T-shirts and sweaters.
La DoubleJ, the Milanese brand famed for its maximalist designs, has debuted a six-piece line of jeans with a second collection to follow in September. The collection features over-dyed and laser-printed denim with patterns, intricate embellishments and embroidered details. “I’ve never been much of a jeans woman, but only because I’ve always struggled to find a pair that really activates my joy switch,” says LaDouble J founder J.J. Martin. “That’s what excites me so much about our jeans: We designed them with all these intricate details, like removable feather cuffs, overdyed laser-prints, embossed leather tags and jacquard embroideries, to really elevate them from the everyday staple into something truly special.” The three silhouettes (flare, Fancy Crop, and the oversized Better Than Your Boyfriend’s Jean) ensure you’ll find the fit that’s right for you.
Landmark of Dreams
Tiffany & Co. debuts its transformed New York City flagship, the Landmark, on Fifth AvenueBY NATASHA WOLFF
Founded in New York City in 1837 by Charles Lewis Tiffany, the brand Tiffany & Co. has reopened the doors to its midtown crown jewel, the newly transformed flagship now known as the Landmark on 57th Street and Fifth Avenue. The luxury retail institution’s first holistic renovation of the store since it first opened its doors in 1940 marries old and new, past and future. Architect and frequent LVMH collaborator Peter Marino reimagined the interior architecture while OMA New York, led by Shohei Shigematsu, spearheaded the renovation of the building’s core and circulation infrastructure, as well as the addition of a new three-story structure atop the iconic building. “The reopening of the iconic Fifth Avenue Landmark is a major milestone for our House. Symbolic of a new era for Tiffany & Co., the Landmark is much more than a jewelry store—it is a cultural hub with an exquisite showcase of architecture and superior hospitality, as well as cutting-edge art and design. It sets a new bar for luxury retail on a global scale,” says the brand’s president and CEO, Anthony Ledru.
The completely reimagined 10-floor boutique boasts nearly 40 artworks, including never-before-seen commissioned pieces from Julian Schnabel, Damien Hirst, Anna Weyant, Daniel Arsham and Rashid Johnson. It’s also home to a collection of store exclusives: diamond watches, home objects, eyewear and the largest collection of Tiffany High Jewelry in the world. At the heart of the store is a sculptural spiral staircase with transparent balustrades adorned with rock crystal, inspired by designer Elsa Peretti, and parquet flooring is featured throughout. A new Blue Box Café concept overseen by superstar chef Daniel Boulud offers a daytime menu with breakfast, lunch and tea service. ■FROM TOP:

Actress and activist Yara Shahidi stuns as the face of the new Dior Forever campaignBY NATASHA WOLFF P HOTOGRAPHY BY NADINE IJEWERE S TYLING BY JASON BOLDON
Yara Shahidi has been in front of the camera since she was 6 weeks old. Best known for her work in the series Black-ish and Grown-ish and as Tinker Bell in the new Disney+ film Peter Pan & Wendy, she’s also an activist and a recent Harvard graduate. Now, the 23-year-old is fronting the campaign for Dior Forever. DuJour spoke with Shahidi about beauty, fashion and stepping outside of her comfort zone.
“I usually keep three colors on me so I can find a perfect color match. I always keep the concealer on me throughout the day if need be, but less is more.”

“Everyone loves the Dior Addict Lip Glow Oils, and I do, too! I love the Rouge Dior Forever lipstick line, because I think pairing a lipstick with a lip oil creates such a pretty, natural blush tone.”

You were named a brand ambassador for Dior in 2021. What is it like to represent a brand like Dior in this new capacity?
For me, it’s an honor to be a Dior beauty ambassador because I think our beauty mindset is so aligned. The idea of using beauty to express yourself and the importance and centrality of community in every Dior campaign and product means that we just have such similar ways of moving through the world approaching beauty. It’s a real privilege working alongside a team that we get to have so much fun with. Not only do we have products that I use every single day for every single work moment, but I also have a team of people that are continuing to be on the cutting edge of what’s next in beauty. It’s such an art that it really does feel like collaborating on an artistic endeavor.
Can you share an interesting anecdote about shooting with Dior?
We were shooting at the Salk Institute [in La Jolla, California,] and there were people in their offices in the building that day. It was just a regular work day for these employees, which meant that we saw people looking out their windows watching these seven girls in these flowing gowns running around, skipping, spinning in circles and holding hands at their place of work. It was really funny, because typically you’re in a studio, where everyone that’s around you is there for the campaign, so to just have these people watching you trying to figure out what was happening was hilarious.
You are so young and already recognized as an actress and activist. What do you want to achieve next?
YARA’S DIOR FAVORITES
“I use Forever Glow Veil Primer, Forever Skin Correct Concealer and Forever Skin Glow Foundation as my base.”
Dior Forever Glow Veil Primer, $50, DIOR , dior.com
The next step continues to be about being an actress, having been on the same show for the past nine years. I’ve loved my journey as Zoey Johnson [on Black-ish and Grown-ish], but I’m really excited to continue to step outside of the roles that people know me for. I’ve been having a lot of fun figuring out what my personal sensibilities are in television and film. I think the next step is in the production space. Having a production company with a business partner, my momma Keri, has been such a privilege, and it’s been beautiful to figure out what’s next and how we can continue to tell stories that move us.
What beauty secrets have you learned from your family and collaborators over the years?
“Don’t touch your face”—that comes straight from my Nana. This is one I struggle with the most, but it works wonders. I used to be, and still am at times, such a face-toucher. Then not only was I dealing with just acne but also scarring and the other consequences from continuously touching your face.
What are your skin and haircare routines, and what Dior products do you use?
I like to start at nighttime, because I feel like that’s when my routine begins. I usually do a double cleanse. I like using the Dior Micellar Water and Eye & Lip Makeup Remover because it gets all of that eyeliner out of my eyes, and that’s usually what takes me the longest to remove. I then go in with either an exfoliant (I like Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads a lot) or a good old benzoyl peroxide to knock out any bumps or anything I’ve been dealing with from travel or work. Then I apply a vitamin C or hyaluronic acid serum and then a ton of moisturizer. For me, it is always a skin-first approach. I love layering moisturizer on like a mask, so that it’s a nice thick layer and absorbs at night. I take supplements like iron and vitamin D at night, too.
I wake up with a pretty clean face, so no need to double cleanse in the morning. During the day, for makeup, I start with brows. I love Dior Kabuki Brow Styler in 050 Black, which I use not only on my brows but for my eyeliner. I use the Forever Couture Luminizer in shade 05 Rosewood Glow when I’m doing a no-foundation day, because it blends into the skin so nicely and feels really natural. Otherwise, I use my Forever Glow Veil Primer, Forever Skin Correct Concealer and Forever Skin Glow Foundation. I usually keep three colors on me so I can find a perfect color match. I always keep the concealer on me throughout the day if need be, but less is more. Everyone loves the Dior Addict Lip Glow Oils, and I do, too! I love the Rouge Dior Forever lipstick line because I think pairing a lipstick with a lip oil creates such a pretty, natural blush tone. Sometimes I like the Forever Nude Style 300 shade that is more of a mauve and Forever Daring 883 that’s more brown. Sometimes it is about
that subtle red, that Forever Dior 999 shade with a Lip Glow Oil over it. And then hair. I love Olaplex to deep condition my hair dur ing work days. I slick my hair back often.
What are your go-tos for self-care?
When I need a good reset for my skin, I love facials at Barbara Sturm. They have such clean products, but I can feel that deep cleanse and I feel so much glowier after. I also love to sleep as self-care. I forget how much I love sleep. I forget how much it feels like I’m giving back to myself when I prioritize sleeping. My nighttime skincare routine is self-care. It doesn’t matter how tired I am, I always do my nighttime routine. That is the one thing I will never skip.
Do you enjoy dressing up and do you have fun with fashion? Do you enjoy pushing the envelope and working with Jason Bolden on cool looks?
I love the fashion world. I love the creativity and the art form of fashion and, through Jason Bolden, I’ve been able to learn so much about fashion to the point where I’ve developed my perspective. I love archive pieces and the history of certain brands. That just adds another level of fun as a history nerd and it feels not like just a side of work to me, but truly a space to play. I love using fashion to add to a certain moment. I’m giving this interview right as I got offstage from a TED Talk, and it was a big deal trying to figure out what would feel emblematic of my talk. And then, you know, being able to go to the Dior fashion shows, like the Mumbai show, was really excellent because it allowed me to appreciate the art of the show. Being able to visit the atelier where they do all of the embroidery was so special. It is such an art form, and it added a whole other level of appreciation once we saw the process of embroidery.
You have a couple of film projects that have been announced, as well as the last season of Grown-ish . Can you tell us a little bit about your upcoming projects?
We’re filming the sixth and final season of Grown-ish now, and I’m excited to be able to honor the past six years of work and wrap up the stories in a way that’s really exciting to us. I’m really honored to be able to take on the role of Tinker Bell in Peter Pan and Wendy. It was so fun, because it’s so different from what I’ve done before. Typically, I’m playing a character that’s close to who I am, a teenage girl or a young adult going through something.

For me, it is always a skin-first approach.
The Science of SOBEL
From advancements in eliminating acne to laser hair restoration and a revolutionary nonsurgical neck lift, what’s new and exciting at the Sobel Skin clinicBY NATASHA WOLFF
With so many devices on the market that promise to help you tap into the fountain of youth, figuring out which treatments get the gold star when it comes to tightening, brightening and reducing the signs of aging is crucial. Dr. Howard Sobel, founder of Sobel Skin and attending dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon at Lenox Hill Hospital, stays at the top of his game by embracing new technologies and procedures. “It is so important to make sure my patients have access to the very latest injectables and laser technologies,” says Dr. Sobel. “Often, what we have used in the past gets vastly improved upon or an even better version of a certain laser may be presented to us, so I am here to pass that knowledge on to my patients.” Whether his patients are spending their summer in the Hamptons (he also has a Hamptons office), or staying put in New York City, Dr. Sobel has the latest offerings, from advancements in eliminating acne to laser hair restoration to a revolutionary nonsurgical neck lift. We asked Dr. Sobel to fill us in on some of the newest innovative treatments and services on offer at his offices.
This is the first and only FDA-cleared device for the treatment of mild to severe acne. Three 30-minute laser treatments target the sebum and dead skin cells that clog the pores and create acne.
Alma TED is an alternative to the painful injections associated with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). It is an ultrasound-based system with a proprietary tip that offers a noninvasive, nontraumatic option to address hair loss concerns.
MyEllevate can lift the neck, eliminate neck bands and tighten the jawline using local anesthesia. It is a patented light-guided technology to accurately place sutures without incisions. This is a fabulous alternative to a more invasive treatment.
Patients were already enjoying the benefits of Emsculpt, but when the new Emsculpt Neo came out, we quickly upgraded. Same great results, but even better. Emsculpt Neo is a revolutionary FDAapproved treatment shown to actually build muscle while working as a fat loss treatment. In addition, the Emsculpt Neo creates the world’s first non-invasive butt lift procedure. This innovative treatment stimulates muscle contractions to grow bigger muscles and burn fat at the same time.

Molly Sims launches a skincare range focusing on hyperpigmentation
A New York City aesthetician debuts a skincare line
Instagram devotees, editors and celebrity clients alike are celebrating the arrival of acne specialist and esthetician Sofie Pavitt’s namesake skincare line. Inspired by the bespoke approach that has earned her New York City studio a months-long waitlist, the potent products from Sofie Pavitt Face are designed to minimize steps and maximize results for problematic skin. The line just added Clean Clean Cleanser to its stable of daily essentials after launching with Mandelic Clearing Serum. “I wanted to develop a cleanser that truly cleaned the skin without leaving any residue,” says Pavitt. “I formulated my Clean Clean Cleanser with glycerin and panthenol, a humectant and skin protectant that leaves the skin feeling smooth and hydrated but also prepped and ready for the next step in your routine.”
Model, author, lifestyle entrepreneur and podcaster Molly Sims has a new skincare range, YSE Beauty, formulated to treat hyperpigmentation. After testing and experimenting with thousands of products throughout her modeling and acting career, Sims launched her own formulas that blend clinically proven efficacy with straightforward, high-quality
ingredients. “It took me many years to finally figure out what worked for my skin. But when I did, I vowed that no one else should have to waste as much time as I did worrying about their skin, which is why I started YSE Beauty,” says Sims of the six-item product line. “I finally perfected my holy grail skincare routine—a routine that delivers genuine, bare-faced beauty.”

Sitting 1,397 feet above the ground in the fifth tallest building in New York City, this 8,000-square-foot apartment, designed by New York-based design firm Pembrooke & Ives, used to be a five-bedroom home but was converted into a massive one-bedroom with two offices, dressing rooms and walk-in closets. The homeowners, with whom the firm has worked on four other occasions (in New York City, Aspen, Palm Beach and the Hamptons) are recent empty nesters who were looking to leave their classical Upper East Side apartment for a home with beautifully curated contemporary interiors. “They wanted a space here with an open floor plan that was also glamorous for entertaining, whether for family (they have four dogs, grown children and grandchildren), clients or for philanthropic activities,” explains Pembrooke & Ives principal Francis Nicdao. “Over the years, we’ve developed a clear understanding of how their family lives and we know what suits their needs. Having said this, with each project we continue to push each other to come up with new, creative and unique ideas for each home.”
To complement the breathtaking panoramic bird’s-eye view from the 88th floor, the design team employed a blue-and-white color palette to mimic the sky and clouds. Each room is filled with various textures, including Fresco plaster walls, high-touch Lasvit lighting and luxurious marble. “The client wanted to completely reimagine this new home for their lifestyle and needs,” says Nicdao. “In a city that often feels strapped for space, much of the luxurious feel that emanates from this home comes from the grand scale of each room, as well as the oversized windows. We took special care

Josh Fox’s Bottom Line
The Miami-based entrepreneur is on the riseBY JONATHAN HEY PHOTOGRAPHY BY NICK MELE
During the mortgage meltdown of 2008, when many companies were laying off their employees, Josh Fox had a light bulb moment.
“Instead of massive corporations firing their employees, there had to be creative ways to save or recover money for Fortune 100 companies,” recalls Fox.
Now, he is the founder and CEO of Bottom Line Concepts. Their first client was Rolex. The pitch: Getting back 50 percent of something is better than 100 percent of nothing. Over the last 15 years, Bottom Line has worked with thousands of businesses and recovered over $5 billion in savings for them.
During the pandemic, Walmart and Amazon exploded while small businesses suffered. In turn, Bottom Line opened a second division, shifting to small businesses and serving as one of the first American companies to file for Employee Retention Credits, says Fox. “So now we’ve helped thousands of small businesses hurt by COVID-19 get this money back.”
“For sure, it’s more gratifying,” explains Fox. “If you get a huge company that does billions a check for $5 million, it’s a pebble in the ocean. But if you cover $1 million for someone who has three pizza restaurants, you’re making a massive impact.” Current clients include Blackstone, Rolex, Citibank, HSBC, the Miami Heat, Audemars Piguet and the Milwaukee Bucks.
Bottom Line’s charitable division, Line Up For Charity, is designed to enhance donations to nonprofit organizations through an entirely new source of funding. By introducing Bottom Line’s services to passionate donors and board members, nonprofits secure a portion of the resulting savings in the form of a donation. On the personal philanthropic front, Fox launched the Brady Hunter Foundation in February, a 501(c)(3) organization that supports animal rights (and is named after his dogs Brady and Hunter).
“I had very high aspirations and goals for the company, and I knew that I wasn’t going to let anything stand in my way of achieving my goals. I want to grow this thing to be the biggest in the country,” he adds.
During the pandemic, Fox also made a geographical change. He had already moved from New York to Los Angeles, but the crisis pushed him to move back to the East Coast, this time to Miami.
“People just seem to be very happy down here,” Fox says. “You have the ocean. You have great weather. We have a lot of visitors down here. Every weekend, someone’s in town.”
One thing Fox misses about New York is that “everyone loves to get dressed up—suits and pocket squares and ties.” In Miami, the lifestyle is very casual. “It’s acceptable to go to work in a T-shirt and sneakers.” Fox finds a place in the middle: loafers, a nice pair of pants and a polo shirt.
To get a glimpse of that old New York style, Fox enjoys going to Queen Miami Beach, an extravagant Japanese restaurant that opened in the Paris Theater earlier this year. Fox likes it because “you feel like you’re in New York in the Roaring ’20s, and they have a dress code.”
He likes to bring big groups there. “We’ll take one of everything. It’s all about variety: a little sushi, a little steak.”
Fox says he also frequents Bourbon Steak in Aventura and Eddie V’s in Fort Lauderdale.
Though he’s full-time in Miami these days, he won’t abandon New York completely. “I’ll definitely come back to the Hamptons this summer,” he says. ■
If you cover $1 million for someone who has three pizza restaurants, you’re making a massive impact.

SHINE OnBY CHRISTINA OHLY EVANS
French savoir-faire meets American artist Donald Judd’s designs in a new eight-piece dinner service crafted in sterling silver by the artisans of heritage brand Puiforcat. Under the direction of Flavin Judd, artistic director of the Judd Foundation, and Puiforcat artistic directors Charlotte Perelman and Alexis Fabry, silversmiths have crafted Judd’s original prototype designs in a new material based on the artist’s sketches, concept drawings and unrealized models, and the results are nothing short of stunning.
Founded in 1820, French silversmith Puiforcat has retained its traditional highcraft techniques while embracing modernity through collaborations with noted names in the worlds of art, architecture and design to realize classic yet contemporary—and utilitarian—works of art. A partnership with the Judd Foundation was a natural move. “This Judd project is an encapsulation of Puiforcat’s genuine aspirations,” say Perelman and Fabry. “The technical challenges of fabricating the pieces, the question of exactitude and the precision of Judd’s designs all spoke to us. The artist originally had to abandon the idea of fabricating this service, as he was unable to find a workshop sufficiently skilled to do the job. This has been resolved by the expertise of our silversmiths, and the service is particularly striking for its balance between artistic expression and functionality, quite in keeping with Jean Puiforcat’s legacy. He believed in working
A new collaboration between the Donald Judd Foundation and Puiforcat has yielded pared-down, sculptural pieces in solid silverFROM TOP: The juxtaposition of periods, forms and materials brings this dining table to glistening life
with the greatest creators of the time and never abandoning the goal of functionality.”
For this service—comprised of dinner, bread, soup, salad and dessert plates, as well as a serving bowl and cups—silversmiths have shaped the metal into cylindrical vessels using spinning lathes and employed a brazing molten-filler technique so that no welding points are visible. Further polishing and buffing reveals the natu ral shine of the silver, and each unique piece is numbered and bears the artist’s mark.
Every part of the service is a sculptural work of art, from the small bread plate ($6,000) to a serene serving bowl ($22,000) to the spare, multipurpose goblet ($6,200), and each is designed to stand alone or in one statement collection. A celebration of form and material—both of which were fundamental to Judd’s practice—the Puiforcat dinner service is the first time his designs have been created in anything but ceramic or stainless steel.
“Solid silver emits a distinctive vibration that is particu larly well-suited to the stripped-down character of Judd’s forms. This minimalist quality demands precision, exactitude and an unfailingly sure hand,” explain Perelman and Fabry. With the help of Puiforcat, the Judd Foundation has seen the artist’s exquisitely simple designs come to life. puiforcat.comServing bowl, $22,000, DONALD JUDD DINNER SERVICE BY PUIFORCAT, puiforcat.com Cup, $6,200, DONALD JUDD DINNER SERVICE BY PUIFORCAT, puiforcat.com Soup plate, $14,000, DONALD JUDD DINNER SERVICE BY PUIFORCAT, puiforcat.com FROM LEFT: Plates, bowls and cups of varying sizes rendered in silver double as objets d’art

The Life of Ryan
Start spreading the news: The New York, New York star is ready to make it anywhereBY MARSHALL HEYMAN PHOTOGRAPHY MONIKA LIS STYLING BY KALLIE BIERSACH
In an age when big celebrities seem to be all that populate the Broadway boards, it’s rare to watch a performer become a star right before your eyes. That’s what’s happening eight shows a week at the St. James Theatre when Tony nominee Colton Ryan shows up on stage.
In the new musical New York, New York , Ryan, who turns 28 just before the Tony Awards in June, stars as Jimmy Doyle, an aspiring musician who falls in love with an aspiring singer named Francine Evans (an equally star-making role for co-star Anna Uzele).
If the title feels familiar, it’s probably because you know the old Kander and Ebb song backward and forward. The little town blues, the vagabond shoes, the city that never sleeps. The show, which also includes other classic Kander and Ebb tunes like “And the World Goes ‘Round,” “Marry Me” and “A Quiet Thing,” is based on the 1977 Martin Scorsese film of the same name. That movie starred a couple of no-names as Jimmy and Francine: Robert De Niro and Liza Minnelli. Easy loafers to fill.
But Ryan is up for the challenge. First, there’s the dancing. He tap danced a bit in college, though not enough to score an A, he recalls. When the show’s creative team presented him with the big Act 1 tap number inspired by the iconic photograph “Lunch Upon a Skyscraper,” they told him that as the leading man, he could just step to the side and let the real dancers strut their stuff.
“I started doing the math in my head, and I just thought, ‘I’m on a skyscraper, where am I going to go?’” Ryan says, laughing. “If I was in the audience, I know how critical I would be if someone was up there faking it.”
“I love an actor who is not scared to take chances, and that’s very much Colton,” says the show’s director, Susan Stroman.
So Ryan spent six months at Broadway Dance Center re-learning to tap. He also worked on the routine for umpteen hours alone with a choreographer. When the rest of the dancers came in to learn the number for the first time, Ryan was humbled yet again. “I had to leave the room. I’m watching these brilliant dancers pick up the choreography in five minutes. They were talking in this other language.”
“It was a real struggle,” Ryan adds, though you wouldn’t know it from his seamless steps onstage.
Then, he needed to learn the instruments. Jimmy is a jazz pianist, “and they wanted it to be so real,” Ryan says. Offstage, he plays
the guitar, which was of no help, and he played the tuba in middle school. “[The creative team] thought that was hilarious.” They added in a little tuba action, but Ryan had to relearn how to play that—“It’s not like riding a bicycle,” he says—and spent months learning jazz piano.
“He’s constantly pushing himself to take risks and explore new possibilities,” says Lin-Manuel Miranda, who contributed lyrics to the show. “He leads with a fearlessness in his performance.”
“This whole thing has ended up being a lot of firsts. I’ve never prepped this hard in terms of learning new skills,” says Ryan. “It’s a strange exercise in doing everything I thought was the scariest thing. People ask me, ‘How do you do it?’ and in general, I just don’t know. The minute I start thinking about it, I might lose it all.”
When he was growing up in Kentucky, Ryan’s grandparents exposed him to lots of old movie musicals, West Side Story, Camelot and Li’l Abner among them. In grade school, he landed his first stage role as the Munchkinland coroner in The Wizard of Oz. Quickly, “theater became my everything, really,” he says, culminating in a high school performance in Les Miz
“That’s the feeling I’m still chasing,” Ryan says of playing Jean Valjean at 17. “I felt something energetic beyond me. I imagine it’s what it’s like for a dancer to jump into the air and do a full tilt, more than 180 degrees. That must feel like the most incredible thing in the world.”
At 21, Ryan had already made it pro in New York as Ben Platt’s understudy in Dear Evan Hansen . He and Platt are still very good friends; Platt happens to be appearing in a revival of the musical Parade this season, just a block away from the St. James. Ryan also appeared on stage in the Bob Dylan musical Girl From the North Country, but after that closed due to COVID-19, “I tiptoed away from things Broadway, even though I missed home a little bit.”
Ryan got called to participate in a workshop of New York, New York while he was filming the Hulu true crime drama The Girl from Plainville in Savannah, Georgia. (He plays Elle Fanning’s boyfriend, who commits suicide. “It was a little heavy,” he says.)
When he read the title sheet on the New York, New York script, he recognized this was “a legends-only lineup” of Kander, Ebb, Miranda and Stroman, a five-time Tony winner.
“It was one thing on paper, but to hear the magnitude of the breadth of [Kander and Ebb’s] work—being inside of it, it lingered like nothing else,” Ryan recalls. The show is a call to arms, he

explains, for loving a somewhat broken New York. “And to anyone who saw [the workshop], it was deeply emotional. I just put my hands up hoping we’d do it for real.”
“I knew Colton was right for the role the moment I met him,” recalls Stroman. “He’s got the confidence in his craft and a true passion for music that emanates from every part of his being. Plus, he’s charm personified.”
Miranda adds that Ryan’s voice “is from another era, in the best way. He sounds right at home in 1946.”
Says Uzele, his onstage love interest: “He knows exactly who he is. He doesn’t try to fill anyone’s shoes but his own, and he does it damn well.”
The role of Jimmy Doyle is one Ryan had always dreamed of—a melange, he explains, of “the goof who does a soft shoe like Gene Kelly
and the guy who gets to sing the beautiful love ballad to the girl.”
Performing the show nightly, he says, is an “unbridled joy. It gets my blood racing.” It’s also nice to be back in New York with his fiancée, Adrian Grace Bumpas, an actor and producer.
“She is New York City to me. This whole thing is for her,” Ryan says. “We have a lot of dreams together.”
Achieving those dreams, at the moment, involves drinking two gallons of water a day and trying to get a nightly eight or nine hours of sleep before singing and dancing his heart out down in Times Square.
“As much as I’ve been hoping for this moment, I’ve been slowly tiptoeing away from it,” Ryan says. “But I’ve found myself readier than I ever thought. I’m hacking it and I’m hoofing it and I’m really happy where I’ve landed.” ■

While Switzerland might conjure images of pistes rather than pools, those in the know relish the calm summer seasonBY CHRISTINA OHLY EVANS
The bucolic hills of Switzerland will be alive this summer with the sound of music—courtesy of the country’s many music festivals and clanging cowbells—but they’ll also be blessedly quiet and free from the typical tourist throngs. While many will flock to summer staples such as the Amalfi Coast and the Côte d’Azur, those looking for a truly regenerative escape might opt for one of the 26
cantons that comprise Switzerland. There, pristine glacial lakes and Alpine adventures (not to mention a fine fondue) await. Direct flights from the U.S. to both Zurich and Geneva—and timely trains from either airport—make accessing the scenic mountain towns a breeze. A night in either city is a pleasure, one that makes the (often early-morning) return flight more manageable.
Switzerland’s lakeside cities are just as beautiful, surrounded by dramatic mountains in every direction. With their mix of culture, world-class cuisine and incredible infrastructure (think timely Swiss trains), a city break here doesn’t feel urban at all.
Zurich is full of churches, cobblestone streets and chocolate shops—all of which contrast brilliantly with contemporary art galleries and the latest in technology and transportation. Book in for a night at the iconic Baur au Lac (bauraulac.ch) for old-world elegance on the shores of Lake Zurich. Enjoy a sumptuous meal at the twoMichelin-starred Pavillon or savor a traditional wiener schnitzel in the more casual Martin Brudnizki–designed brasserie Baur’s. Just at the edge of the city sits The Dolder Grand (thedoldergrand.com), a castle-like hideaway with 175 rooms and suites as well as a 43,000-square-foot Foster + Partners–designed spa. Outdoor enthusiasts will love hiking and biking the trails around the lake or Käferberg and Greifensee—all with a gourmet picnic basket full of local cheeses and charcuterie in tow. Aesthetes will want to make time for the expansive Kunsthaus Zurich, which holds treasures from the 17th century as well as Alberto Giacometti sculptures and contemporary photography by Cindy Sherman.CLOCKWISE FROM TOP: The bedroom of a Carezza suite at The Dolder Grand; a staircase in the hotel’s main building; the hotel’s spa terrace; the Baur au Lac in Zurich
Summer is the season in Geneva as it’s set on crystalline Lac Léman and offers views of majestic Mont-Blanc in the distance. With boating, sailing and mountain biking all easy options in and around the city, it’s the perfect setting to enjoy leisurely, mild days in the mid-70s, with a stroll around the Old Town followed by drinks on one of the plein air terraces in the Jardin Anglais. For the culturally curious, the towns of Lausanne and Montreux—the latter known for its Jazz Festival—are a short train ride away.
Many of the major hotel chains have a presence here, but among the standouts is the independently owned Beau-Rivage (beau-rivage.com) on the Quai du Mont-Blanc. Old-world excellence—complete with crisp linens, floral arrangements, local chocolates and meringues nightly—is found throughout the hotel’s 52 rooms and 43 suites, and you’ll feel perfectly attended to from Michelin-starred chef Dominique Gauthier’s private table right through to the customized spa treatments. Just down the lake, you’ll find newcomer The Woodward,
a Belle Époque boutique addition to The Oetker Collection (oetkercollection.com) that features 26 sumptuous suites designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon. Public areas buzz throughout the day, and the hotel hosts two restaurants—L’Atelier Robuchon and Le Jardinier—and a gleaming 13,000-squarefoot Guerlain spa.
HEAD FOR THE HILLS
Ski towns, lakeside retreats and some of the best spas in the world have beckoned travelers to the Swiss countryside for decades, but the pandemic has made the pure mountain air more sought-after than ever before. As a result, chic new hotels now sit beside classic chalet-style inns, and international cuisines—Italian at Langosteria in St. Moritz and Japanese at Megu in Gstaad—are increasingly the order of the day alongside the traditional raclette
Picture-perfect Zermatt, with its majestic Matterhorn, is beautiful in any season, but summer brings a slew of hikers, hardcore climbers and other outdoor enthusiasts. History lovers will want to stay at the Monte Rosa Hotel (monterosazermatt.ch), a Victorian gem opened in 1853 that’s covered in Alpine memorabilia. Mont Cervin Palace (montcervinpalace.ch) is the area’s grand dame, with
Alpine, chalet and family-style rooms for those in search of understated luxury. The tranquil Spa Nescens here offers a reboot after days spent fly fishing and mountain biking the surrounding trails. For a more contemporary, intimate feel, book in at Schweizerhof (schweizerhofzermatt.ch), where the Beach Bar Zermatt—complete with sand, palm trees and a DJ—comes alive every afternoon.FROM TOP: The indoor pool at the Mont Cervin Palace in Zermatt; the hotel’s exterior
Two smaller mountain towns to check out ASCONA
Thrill-seekers love this part of central Switzerland, where paragliding and skydiving are among the standard summer activities. Set at the foot of the Jungfrau Massif—and between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz—is the glamorous Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel & Spa (victoria-jungfrau.ch). With its massive pool, sauna, steam baths and 16 treatment rooms, the spa is a destination in itself.
The Mediterranean meets the mountains in Ascona, where Italian is spoken and the views of Lake Maggiore are spectacular. Hotel Eden Roc (tschuggencollection.ch) is the height of la dolce vita living, and a ride on their Riva to the Brissago Islands is a must for the lush botanical gardens.
The Engadine valley is home to storied St. Moritz, a town that first flourished as a tourist destination in the 1860s (largely due to its 320 days of annual sunshine) and has since hosted two Winter Olympics and become famous for its plentiful pistes. Paddle boarding on Lake St. Moritz, mountain biking the Corviglia Flow Trail and kite surfing on Lake Silvaplana are just a few of the most popular summer activities. A real highlight is the Festival da Jazz centered around the famous Dracula Club, which was founded by Gunther Sachs in the 1970s and is still a glitterati favorite.
The iconic Badrutt’s Palace (badruttspalace.com) features 155 rooms with lake views, as well as a sprawling spa and infinity pool. The knowledgeable concierge can set up guided hikes on Piz Nair, sailing lessons or serious climbing expeditions with the local Pontresina Mountaineering School. The season peaks with Swiss National Day on August 1, when the villages of the Engadine unite to celebrate with festivals and fireworks and Badrutt’s Palace hosts its annual gala dinner. Dining options from the hotel include the famed on-mountain club and restaurant Paradiso (which the brand took over last winter), accessible only by hike or chairlift; Chesa Veglia, the hotel’s 17th-century farmhouse restaurant (think fondue and wood-fired pizza); and La Diala for outdoor dining.
Less glitzy than some of the surrounding resorts, Crans-Montana offers a vast array of activities, as well as hotels for every interest and age group. The newest game in town is the state-of-the-art Six Senses (sixsenses.com), a 78-room and suite property crafted using sustainable, local materials such as quartzite, larch and slate. Its slopeside position is perfect in the winter months but also provides easy access to on-mountain hiking, horseback riding and biking. The Six Senses Spa features everything from a Finnish sauna to cold plunge pools to biohacking equipment and nine treatment rooms. Dining is central to a stay here, with Wild Cabin serving hearty classic Swiss fare while Byakko offers delicious dishes inspired by the Japanese Alps. Ask for a balcony room to take in sweeping views of Mont Blanc and the valley of Valais beyond.
Golfers will love the area as it plays host to the Omega European Masters (August 30–September 3) and there are ample opportunities to get on the course—particularly if you stay at the Garda Golf Hotel & Residences ( guardagolf.com) or its fellow Leading Hotels of the World property, Le Crans (lecrans.com), high above town. LeCrans has a homey-yet-chic chalet feel with rooms that are named for the world’s mountain ranges and decorated accordingly (the Kilimanjaro room, for example, features East African design touches). The service is very personal and the staff are happy to set up mid-mountain picnics, bike tours, rounds of golf at the local Jack Nicklaus–designed course, wine tours and treatments in the hotel’s spa. Chef Yannick Crepaux serves a tasting menu at LeMontBlanc that presents exquisite seasonal dishes highlighted by the endless mountain views.
Set in the Bernese Oberland region in southwestern Switzerland, Gstaad has long been known as charming and glamorous getaway—one with strict zoning rules that have preserved the quaint chalet-style homes and kept hotels in check. One exception to the understated rule is the Gstaad Palace ( palace.ch), the de facto clubhouse for locals and tourists alike, where the bustling lobby bar is the place for après everything, not to mention a perfect club sandwich. Opened in 1913 and owned by the Scherz family since 1947, the turreted Palace has old-world style (Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Grace Kelly all frequented the place), but with the finest spa and in-room amenities. Tennis, paragliding and swimming in the indoor/outdoor pool are just a few of the activities on offer—many of which are best followed by fondue at cult favorite La Fromagerie, which served as a bunker for gold storage during World War II.
Just a bit closer to town is the newer Alpina Gstaad (thealpinagstaad.ch), another authentic option for families and art lovers alike (the in-house collection includes works by Dan Colen, Tracey Emin, Jana Euler and Terence Koh). Lounge by the pool or eat in the traditional Swiss Stübli restaurant before heading into town for more art at the gleaming Gagosian gallery or a bit of shopping at stylish emporium Maison Lorenz Bach.FROM LEFT: A suite at Alpina Gstaad in Gstaad; the hotel’s swimming pool Gstaad
While Rome, Florence and Venice get all the Italian hype (and the tourists), Milan remains a relatively hidden gem that is a design lover’s dream. Long a center for art and architecture, a slew of new hotels, incredible restaurants and, of course, chic shops are making this northern Italian city more vibrant than everBY CHRISTINA OHLY EVANS
The latest property in the Ferragamo family–owned Portrait Collection, Portrait Milano is already setting itself apart with its high-touch, elegant approach to hospitality. With 73 rooms— including 20 suites, garden-facing spaces and a sumptuous 1,700-square-foot presidential suite—the hotel sits in what was once the Archiepiscopal Seminary (one of Europe’s oldest, built in 1565). A commanding baroque entrance by Francesco Maria Richini was built in 1652 and has been lovingly restored by architect Michele De Lucchi and further enhanced by interior architect Michele Bönan, who has been involved with several properties in the larger Lungarno Collection.
Closed for three decades, this Leading Hotels of the World property is once again a hub—for fashion, community and the arts—with the hotel’s 30,000-square-foot piazza playing host to artists and hotel guests alike. The exquisite Milanese residence has been transformed with lighter, contemporary touches—leather
handles, woven rattan paneling—that recall the iconic Ferragamo style. In addition to serene guest rooms, Portrait also boasts a highly curated selection of dining and retail spaces. From casual dining at 10_11 to a more formal meal at Beefbar or a refreshing cocktail in the garden, there is something for virtually every palate within the stylish property.
City spas are often an afterthought, but Portrait Milano has partnered with The Longevity Suite to create an expansive wellness center that will cater to the frantic business traveler and the sybarite alike. From a beautiful swimming pool (a rarity in the city) set beneath the historic seminary arches to mindfulness and meditation exercises, the spa menu promises to be comprehensive—a welcome respite from the bustle of Milan Fashion Week. lungarnocollection.com
The Brera design district is now home to the stylish Casa Baglioni, an art nouveau 30-room and suite hotel designed to feel like a home away from home. Airy interiors by Milanese architects Spagnulo & Partners are decorated with a world-class art collection that includes Enrico Castellani, Christo and Carla Accardi. Sophisticated lighting by Panzeri, Rubelli wallpapers, Dedar fabrics and craft ceramics and glass all accent the chic rooms that range from the standard superior room to the sprawling Brera Presidential Suite with floor-to-ceiling windows and a private terrace.
The Michelin-starred Sadler Restaurant by chef Claudio Sadler and its impressive wine cellar are worth a visit, with 36 chic seats available each night to sample the chef’s lauded colorful presentations that fuse tradition with state-ofthe-art technique. baglionihotels.com
The beloved New York institution that is Sant Ambroeus has returned to its Milanese roots, reopening in the space it originally occupied in 1936. Many years in the making, the best of the U.S. and Italy is on display all day; from cappuccinos and cornetti at breakfast to paninis and housemade pastas at lunch and branzino and lobster rolls at dinner, the restaurant’s classic dishes have been infused with local flair and flavor.
MANGIA! DUJOUR.COM 89
If you fancy a Harry’s Bar-in-Venice vibe, head straight for Casa Cipriani, the sumptuous 15-room and suite hotel that overlooks the leafy Indro Montanelli gardens. Old-school Italian fashion flair meets an English club atmosphere at this intimate newcomer—one with spaces by Florentine architect Michele Bönan, who has used walnut boiserie, oak flooring and bespoke Venetian chandeliers to dazzling effect.
Once a palazzo, the property now boasts several outstanding dining experiences, including Bar Arrigo, which is perfect for an aperitivo, and the more formal third-floor restaurant where fresh bellinis and Cipriani’s signature beef carpaccio are both on offer and can be enjoyed on the club’s lovely terrace. A serene Wellness Center has been conceived by Milan’s Studio Apostoli and features a Finnish cedar sauna and a red marble hammam. casaciprianimilano.com
The work of jeweler and sculptor Maria Sole Ferragamo is shown to dazzling effect in her new flagship So-Le boutique on the Portrait Milano piazza. Swathed in fabric and dramatically backlit, cut-outs by architecture studio Fondamenta highlight the designer’s stunning creations—statement-making leather necklaces in metallic hues, a shell ring in brass and bags made of upcycled Italian leather—to subtly dazzling effect. Consider this an experiential gallery, and one with affordable, truly unique baubles to boot. so-le-studio.com
A combination of “sea” and “ease” has inspired the brand Sease by brothers Giacomo and Franco Loro Piana (of the famed cashmere family), and their sensible, chic designs work well from the slopes to the back of a scooter in Milan. Beautiful technical fabrics—by Woolmark, for example—are transformed to create the ultimate urban kit; ultra-warm cashmere hooded parkas, practical knitwear, pique polos and ski gear for women are just a few of the exquisitely tailored garments that fuse Italian style with state-ofthe-art performance. sease.it
With guests-in-residence including Gigi Hadid and ultra-exclusive Off-White sneaker launches, Antonia is the place for high fashion and streetwear alike. A highly curated selection of men’s and women’s clothing by Saint Laurent, JW Anderson, Khaite, Loewe, Isabel Marant and more can be found in the stylish emporium, as well as bags by Gucci, Jacquemus and Bottega Veneta—many of which you won’t find elsewhere. With its sleek mirrors and streamlined presentation, Antonia is as much a gallery as a retail space. antonia.it

There are her roles in some of the best (and most rewatched) comedies of the past decade, like Bridesmaids, Neighbors, Spy and, most recently, Spirited , opposite Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell.
There are the family films she’s lent her voice to, from the hugely successful Peter Rabbit movies to this summer’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem , out in early August.
There are the charming, underrated indie movies in which she’s made a particularly relatable impression, including The Meddler, opposite Susan Sarandon, and Juliet, Naked , with Ethan Hawke.
She’s also starred in horror movies, including most of the Insidious franchise—the fifth installment, subtitled The Red Door, comes out in July—and on stage, including a revival of You Can’t Take It With You with James Earl Jones on Broadway and a production of Medea , opposite her real-life partner, actor Bobby Cannavale, at BAM in 2020, just before the pandemic.
And that’s not even taking into account her innumerable television roles, from her breakout on Damages, with Glenn Close, to her glowing personification of Gloria Steinem in FX’s limited series Mrs. America.
In the last few years, perhaps unexpectedly, Byrne has become, basically, a poster girl for Apple TV+. In June, she returns with a third season of her series Physical , a dark comedy in which she plays Sheila Rubin, a San Diego housewife with an eating disorder who finds solace in the world of aerobics in the early 1980s.
But before it comes Platonic , premiering on Apple in late May. This series feels like a more obvious choice for Byrne, given her comedy past; she stars as Sylvia, a lawyerturned-mom married to Luke MacFarlane, who reconnects with a newly divorced old friend, played by Byrne’s frequent collaborator Seth Rogen. Their relationship stays relatively, well, platonic, but, as happens in half-hour comedies, it ends up complicating the romantic elements in both of their lives.
Platonic was co-created and directed by Nicholas Stoller, who is a particularly important cog in the Rose Byrne metaverse. He directed her and Rogen in both Neighbors films, as well as in 2010’s Get Him to the Greek . Byrne describes the latter movie as “my break in comedy.”
“She’s just so game,” says Stoller of why he’s found Byrne to be something of a comic muse. “She’s probably the most game actor I’ve ever worked with. On Platonic, she’s having a midlife nervous breakdown. In another actor’s hands, it would have felt too heavy or too silly, but she’s somehow able to find the perfect balance and make it completely human.”

Perhaps a reason why Byrne is able to hop from project to project with such seeming ease is because she often collaborates with a team of regulars. “When you’ve worked with people before, you have a nice ability to fall back into rhythm within a few weeks,” says Byrne one afternoon at a café near her Brooklyn home. “You’re like, ‘Oh, that’s right. This is how this ecosystem works together.’”
Collaborating with Stoller and Rogen on this latest series was just “a nice space to be back in again.”
“We’re just happy to make people laugh,” she adds. “There were many days I couldn’t get through the scene [because I was] laughing [so hard].”
Byrne uses the same word to describe Rogen that Stoller used to describe her. “Seth is just always game ,” Byrne says. “He’s always got a take on an idea that’s unique, subversive and very interesting. I love that about his work and his comedy. He’s a sweetheart. Just because you’re a funny person doesn’t mean you’re a funny actor, and vice versa.”
Byrne admits that the Neighbors films, in which she and Rogen play a married couple terrorized by their frat boy neighbor, played by Zac Efron, have a “raunchier” tone than Platonic. The new show, she explains, is a slightly more mature and “interesting examination of a male-female friendship. It’s very rare to see that other than in Seinfeld , really.”
She adds that the show “raises important questions about the friendships that existed in a time pre-marriage and career, and whether those friendships can still exist.”
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Byrne’s role on Physical is, well, a lot more physical. There’s a lot of working out, both on-set and off. “But that’s one of the perks of that job,” she says. “To have this big training three times a week. I see why it’s addictive, but it’s a show about addiction. That kind of exercise is really hard, but it’s the way [I get] into that character.”
“She makes it all seem so easy, but she works so hard,” says Zooey Deschanel, who appears opposite Byrne in the third season of Physical as a TV star who enters her aerobics sphere. “But she’s an absolute joy to work with. She’s extraordinarily easygoing and calm on set.”
Interestingly enough, both Physical and Platonic tackle the subjects of marriage, motherhood and work-life balance. These are the big issues Byrne must clearly grapple with off-screen, too. The 43-year-old actress lives with Cannavale in Brooklyn with their two sons, Rocco, 7, and Rafa, 5.
Clearly one solution for their partnership is working together, as in Medea . This fall, they’ll appear opposite Robert De Niro in Inappropriate Behavior, a drama that casts them as a divorced couple who disagree about how to raise their autistic son.
In a slight departure from her typical family, horror and comedic fare, Inappropriate Behavior is a drama. But Byrne is not intimidated.
As Stoller says, “She can switch between comedy and drama at the drop of a hat. She’s just a comedy and acting machine.”
“Rose has this extraordinary quality of being simultaneously gentle and fierce,” says Inappropriate Behavior director Tony Goldwyn, also an actor. “She always surprises with the subtlety and complexity of her choices.”
As for the complexity of Byrne’s off-screen choices, after spending much of the peak pandemic months in Australia while Cannavale filmed Nine Perfect Strangers, then going to Los Angeles for Physical and Platonic, she is quite happy to take a beat back in New York with her family.
“I really enjoy being back in the city,” she says. “What I love about New York is that you walk around and just run into people all day. That doesn’t really happen in California. We love the city and Bobby loves the city, so we’re not going to go any time soon.”
Being back in New York also means a more regular routine and day-to-day life. “I’m taking a break after having done jobs continuously,” Byrne says. “I’m enjoying the role of being a mom, and I’m looking forward to having a nice summer.”
As for how she handles that hugely important role of mom with two boys under 8, “I need structure,” she says, “otherwise they’ll just go stir crazy in the house. It’s fun to get out, and there’s always lots to do in the city with kids. Or we can just take them to the park.”
At the same time, Byrne is eager for the next thing. Some might even say she was “game” for anything.
Most of all, “I’d love to get back on stage. I would love to revisit that again,” Byrne says. “It’s such a rigorous muscle to work, and it’s also the most extraordinary experience to just exist in that moment. Every performance is different.”
But she’s also happy to continue to grow the Rose Byrne comedic metaverse. Now that she and Rogen have played spouses and best friends, what could be next? The possibilities are endless.
“I have such respect for comedy,” Byrne says, beaming. “I think it’s really hard. I think it’s hard to make it look effortless. I certainly work at it.” ■

Rancho Mirage, interior designer Pjetur Sigurdson and builder Scott Cullens have created a gleaming 6,000-square-foot homeBY NATASHA WOLFF PHOTOGRAPHY BY DOUGLAS FRIEDMAN
The glass rotunda is the central connection between the great room, kitchen, butler’s pantry, primary suite, office and guest wing, and a vintage 1950s Murano fountain is the star of the show
SLEEPY DESERT TOWN IN THE 1940 s
Rancho Mirage, California, became a luxurious community for famous faces like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Sammy Davis Jr., Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. At the same time, the mid-century modern movement was gaining popularity, and architects like A. Quincy Jones, E. Stewart Williams, William F. Cody and Wallace Neff were designing homes for boldface names in the sunny enclave in the Coachella Valley within the Sonoran Desert. More recently, in the gated community of Mirada adjacent to The Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage resort in the foothills of the Santa Rosa Mountains, interior designer Pjetur Sigurdson of Hollywood Home in partnership with Scott Cullens of Palm Pacific Construction have created a glamorous 6,000-square-foot home.
The owners, Sigurdson and his husband, Dimitri James, founder of Skinn Cosmetics, concocted this lavish showplace, which required a gut renovation by Cullens and his team, who have built many homes in the area. The couple are no strangers to the Coachella Valley, having lived for the last decade in the nearby Indian Canyons neighborhood of Palm Springs in a decidedly different Hollywood Regency–style home. The two (and their dog and cat) love to entertain and carefully curated their new home to match their lifestyle by sourcing one-of-a-kind items from around the world as well as creating custom-made pieces. “The black, white and gold-hued home perfectly showcases what you would expect from Pjetur’s bold design aesthetic and Dimitri’s exuberant personality and passion for beauty,” says Cullens.
Statement-making design details include black titanium counters with brushed gold casework sitting on a canvas of white marble floors where the slabs are edged in gold. Grand gilded chandeliers, a towering black fireplace, a custom green velvet headboard that spans an entire wall and lively Christian Lacroix wallpaper punctuate the spaces, which boast amazing desert floor views. LED-lighted steps make the entire space contiguous and visible from everywhere in the home. “The gold, black and white color palette might be over-the-top for most people, but as a complete picture, it is undeniably high art,” says Cullens of the home’s aesthetic. Accessories like Missoni throw blankets, Baccarat crystal vases and candlesticks and Gubi pendant lights add interest in the predominantly blackand-gold color palette. “Easy living while surrounding yourself with beauty is what Palm Springs style means to me, ” Sigurdson has said. “A carefree ease with bold ideas that make people just want to smile.” ■

“We love to load up the car and go to Mecox Beach early in the morning. If we get there before the crowds and leave before it gets too hot, it makes for the perfect day trip. I’ll stock our cooler with sandwiches from Cavaniola’s or Carissa’s and beer from Kidd Squid Brewing Company.”
and her two daughters at their full-time home in North Haven (where they moved from Sag Harbor in 2020) to see what they have planned this summer in the Hamptons. saiehello.com“Even though we love going to nice dinners, we usually entertain at home. We’ll pick up sliders, hot dogs and tons of veggies from Round Swamp Farm and serve super cold bottles of Summer in a Bottle from my friend Joey Wolffer’s winery. Loaves & Fishes is excellent for picking up items for lunch or dinner at home, and sometimes we’ll just get a fabulous selection of cheese from Cavaniola’s and call it a day!”
“For an outdoor dinner, the Sagaponack Farm Distillery is great when they have food trucks on the lawn. We go to Le Bilboquet or Tutto il Giorno in Sag Harbor if we want more of a scene. The best food is Léon 1909 on Shelter Island, and we go there a lot. Our favorite thing during the summer is to take a sunset cruise to Ram’s Head Inn.”
“Goop in Sag Harbor is a one-stop shop. All my friends get their Saie Mascara 101 from there when they need a restock! And I just love the clothing section.”
“A cappuccino at Grindstone in Sag Harbor.”
“I work very closely with Hamptons Community Outreach, an incredible organization run by powerhouse Marit Molin doing such important work for our community. It’s hard to comprehend how many people in the Hamptons live in poverty, almost literally in the shadows of $100 million homes. I was raised to always think of others and give back to the community, and I’m doing the same with my girls. They fundraise and volunteer right along with us.”

STATE OF PLAY
Beauty entrepreneur and full-time West Tisbury resident Emily Parr talks about the current state of beauty and life on Martha’s Vineyard, where she and her husband are building a home in Chilmark
Skincare entrepreneur Emily Parr, who, with her partner Majeed Hemmat, launched HoliFrog two years ago, is back with Current State, a collection of nutritiously balanced and clinically responsive products created to make taking care of your skin as intuitive as eating a well-balanced diet. For summer, the brand is launching the Be the Bright Side bundle, which includes three of the brand’s best selling formulas to exfoliate, brighten and nourish the skin (Salicylic + Green Tea Exfoliating Cleanser, Vitamin C + Super Greens Brightening Serum and Bamboo + Amino Mega Moisture Cream). Also this season, HoliFrog is launching a sunscreen, Solar Mineral Daily Sunscreen SPF 30. currentstateofbeauty.com
What’s special about the Vineyard?
The Vineyard has always been the place I feel most at home, at peace and in my happiest state. I look for any and every excuse to head here four, eight or even 12 weeks at a clip. I truly feel like the best version of myself here.
What’s special about the Vineyard?
Every town feels like a different country. It’s pretty wild! Spending time outside on the Vineyard shows you the diversity of the island, with its topography created during the last Ice Age—giant boulders, cliffs, marshland, woodland and beach. From hiking in Menemsha Hills to meandering around Polly Hill Arboretum to watching the sun go down at Squibnocket Beach, there is no shortage of natural beauty.
Where are the best beaches on the island?
In my opinion, Chilmark and Aquinnah have the best town beaches (Lucy Vincent and Philbin Beach, respectively). My favorite public beaches are Long Point in West Tisbury, Wasque on Chappaquiddick and Moshup in Aquinnah. Moshup Beach is a destination, but it’s the only clay cliff beach in the country.
What local farms do you visit?
Mermaid Farm for cheeses, Grey Barn for bread, Ghost Island Farm and Beetlebung Farm for their mesclun greens and Morning Glory for their baked goods (especially the lemon poppy bun and zucchini bread).
What’s a typical day like for you on island?
On a non-work day, I start my day with an 8-to-10-mile run (beginning on a bike path across the street from my house and ending on a dirt road in the Long Point Wildlife Refuge). From there, my family will frantically pack lunches for the beach and pile into cars headed to Lambert’s Cove Beach. After a few hours of laughing and swimming, we will go to Ice House Pond for a quick dip in the deep glacial freshwater pond. I will then do a quick Tracy Anderson workout in the basement to stretch my body out before dinner. When our family is all together, we don’t end up eating dinner until 8:30 pm. After dinner and Morning Glory blueberry pie for dessert, we indulge my mom in a game of Salad Bowl, which is a more nuanced version of charades— she is obsessed with it.
How do you like to dine on the island?
Lucky Hank’s is incredible quality food without a scene. Beach Plum Inn is my personal favorite: Sitting outside on the rolling hills overlooking Menemsha Harbor feels like a dream. When my husband craves being in the thick of it with a crowd, we go to The Port Hunter, and for chill carryout or eating on their front porch in the rocking chairs, we love Chilmark General Store. Their kale salad and meatballs are my go-tos, although most people head there for their pizza! Mad Martha’s finally has vegan ice cream, so I will pop in there for a scoop if I haven’t picked up artisanal chocolate from Salt Rock or a pie from Pie Chick’s or Morning Glory Farm.Emily Parr in Martha’s Vineyard

Realizing there was nothing like it in San Francisco’s culinary space, chef and owner Srijith “Sri” Gopinathan (of Ettan Palo Alto fame) decided to open Copra, inspired by his childhood. “Copra pays homage to the coastal cuisines of India’s southern states, mainly Kerala, where I was born, and Tamil Nadu, which is where I spent my formative years,” says Gopinathan of the eatery in the Fillmore District. “We looked to Sri Lanka for influence as well. What we really are aiming to do, though, is to honor the women in particular from our families who raised us, who nurtured us. You can see some of their recipes reflected on the menu, as we are telling their stories through our food at Copra, and sharing credit with them.” Menu standouts range from the crab curry with roasted coconut, coriander, tamarind and red onion served with appam (a thin pancake made from fermented rice batter) to the Chutney Palette, which Gopinathan explains captures the depth of the cuisine through four small stories. “From charred wild gooseberries melded with garlic, shallots, tamarind and curry leaves to fresh ghost peppers made more robust with dried chilies and roasted lentils, each one offers big flavors and a balance of sweet, sour and spicy elements." coprarestaurant.com

Backen designed the 2,300-square-foot modern farmhouse-style hospitality center with an expansive ceiling clad in redwood and a seating area anchored by a cozy fireplace and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. “The new space allows our hospitality team to offer an extraordinary experience where guests can expand their knowledge of wine and food while enjoying vineyard and mountain views from the valley floor,” explains Leslie Frank. “I always loved the spot where our Miller House currently stands. My vision was to integrate the natural surroundings of this special location with the design itself, and I think Backen and his team exceeded that request.” frankfamilyvineyards.comThe Miller House at Frank Family Winery HOUSTON HAMPTONS

FARTHER AFIELD . HONOR ROLL
Originally built in 1929 and operated as Hotel President until the late 1960s (the original sign still remains outside), the painstakingly restored Graduate Palo Alto has opened in downtown Palo Alto. Located five minutes from Stanford University, the 100-room, Spanish colonial–style hotel was restored based on an original 1958 photograph of the lobby with wood-beamed ceilings, tile floors and a handwoven tapestry. Guestrooms are appointed with upholstered settees, hand-painted wallpaper depicting redwood flowers, custom brass-and-wood beds with redwood detailing and Malin+Goetz apothecary products. “From the historical significance of the hotel as a community landmark to the design that weaves decades of stories into layered, thought-provoking décor, Graduate Palo Alto is a love letter to Stanford and the greater Bay Area,” says Kevin Osterhaus, president of Graduate Hotels. “We worked incredibly hard to restore the architectural and design elements fundamental to the property while creating a refreshed design that encourages curiosity from even the most well-versed alums and locals.” The property also features a rooftop bar, President’s Terrace, with an outdoor fireplace and sweeping city views. graduatehotels.com

A storied piece of jewelry seeks a new ownerBY EDWARD ESPITIA
Few names in Hollywood can match the fashion cachet of Marlene Dietrich. The Blue Angel is known not only for her impeccable acting chops, but her refined and daring style choices that made her an enduring fashion icon. Her whimsical taste in jewels is what drew Anne Eisenhower to acquire Dietrich’s most famous bauble, the Jarretière bracelet, at an auction of the actress’ estate in 1992. The Van Cleef & Arpels bracelet co-starred alongside Dietrich in the 1950 Hitchcock murder mystery Stage Fright. She wore the impressive piece to the 1951 Academy Awards and was photographed with it many times.
It was created when Erich Maria Remarque, the author of All Quiet on the Western Front and Dietrich’s lover, suggested that she take several of her jewelry pieces and have them remade into something magnificent. The result was the impressive Jarretière—a cuff-style bracelet comprising baguette-cut diamonds surrounded by a wide disc of vibrant cushion-cut rubies trimmed with a ring of delicate diamonds. The underside is set with countless pavé diamonds so that the bracelet can sparkle from every angle. It’s no wonder it was one of Dietrich’s beloved pieces. The actress held on to the bracelet until her death, even after financial setbacks forced her to let go of most of her jewel collection.
Eisenhower added her name to the Jarretière’s impressive provenance when she purchased the piece anonymously in 1992. A scion of one of America’s preeminent families, she was widely
recognized for her flawless and timeless taste as an interior designer and collector. The unique bracelet’s sophisticated whimsy was a perfect match for Eisenhower’s keen eye for exceptional design. “This jewel transcends the jewelry world. It is impressive and striking, whether you have a love for jewelry, an appreciation for art and craftsmanship or even architectural design. This bracelet is one of one. There is nothing quite like it. As jewelry continues to evolve and change, the Jarretière remains uniquely contemporary and awe-inspiring, even 85 years later,” says Jacqueline DiSante of Christie’s, which will be offering the bracelet as the star lot of the auction The Magnificent Jewels of Anne Eisenhower on June 7.
