Gladys Editor's Letter

Reach For the STARS. You Just Might Become One! From her first big break on General Hospital, to memorable roles in Wayne’s World and True Lies and most recently having starred as Sydney Fox in the television series Relic Hunter, as well as Lady Danger opposite RuPaul in Netflix's AJ and the Queen, Tia Carrerre is the epitome of a star and survivor in Hollywood. Tia also appeared as a contestant in the second season of Dancing with the Stars and the fifth season of The Celebrity Apprentice. In addition to acting, Tia has won two Grammy Awards for her music and she is the definition of a star who does it ALL! This international box office superstar will star with Jo Koy, Tiffany Haddish and Lou Diamond Phillips in her newest film “Easter Sunday” from Amblin/Universal which comes out August 1st. Our theme for this issue is RISING STARS! And, Tia is someone all of our Rising Stars can get inspired by and motivated by to strive for a similar long lasting career. We are thrilled to feature the stunning, exotic and talented Tia Carrere as our Cover Story! Tia’s gorgeous cover image was shot by Robert Lynden and here’s what he had to say about his shoot with Tia: "I was inspired by Tia Carrere’s colorful and down-to-earth character. She is very charismatic, so I wanted to bring out Tia’s personality and character out in the pictures. We shot the session very fast because we were all tuned in on the same wave channel. The last look of Tia I decided to change the environment with makeup and hair as well as the lighting. I used one light, the kind used on movie sets, to create some drama and a look of old Hollywood but with a contemporary look”. Check out what she’s been up to in her Gladys Interview on page 32. In addition, another actress we have always loved and admired is Geena Davis. Read her interview where she discusses the Oscars, Thelma & Louise and the Hollywood gender gap. We are excited to Name our RISING STARS for 2022! From authors, actresses, models, designers, photographers, business owners, CEO’s, comedians, Beauty Gurus & New Faces, these passionate individuals are redefining what it means to innovate and lead by example. Meet the next generation of Innovators, Disruptors, Leaders, Visionaries, Entrepreneurs, Changemakers, Trailblazers... Our RISING STARS. Make sure to check out our International Cover starring the work of our very own Djordje Bukvic - we discovered this Rising Star 10 years ago and now he’s our International Director of Photography and Founder of George Book. You can read all about our Rising Stars starting on page 50. The signs of Spring are all around us and showcased inside this issue of Gladys with gorgeous editorials: The Triumph of Flowers, The Way she MOVES and Show Girls. Spring collections from some of our favorites: Louis Vuitton, Gucci, FENDI, Ivan Young and Miss Circle will add new life and beauty to your fashion wardrobe this season.Let your joy burst forth like flowers and never be afraid to shine like the Rising Star you are!

Happy Spring!

INSPIRATION FOR TIA CARRERE SESSION I was inspired by Tia Carrere’s colorful and down-to-earth character. She is very charismatic, so I wanted to bring out Tia’s personality and character out in the pictures. We shot the session very fast because we were all tuned in on the same wave channel. The last look of Tia I decided to change the environment with makeup and hair as well as the lighting. I used one light, the kind used on movie sets, to create some drama and a look of old Hollywood but with a contemporary look. SOCIAL MEDIA: @robertlynden

FENDI CAFFE OPENS IN MIAMI DESIGN DISTRICT FENDI announced now through May 1, 2022 the return of the iconic FENDI CAFFE at OTL Restaurant in the heart of Miami’s vibrant Design District, located across from the FENDI Boutique, following the great success of the FF Vertigo-inspired iteration in the Summer 2021. In a celebration of the spring season, the new creative concept for the FENDI CAFFE draws creative cues from the FENDI Women’s Spring/Summer 2022 Collection, and its inspiration from the figurative drawings of visionary fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez. In collaboration with The Estate and Archive of Antonio Lopez and Juan Ramos, the artist’s work has been freshly revived for the FENDI Women’s Spring/Summer 2022 Collection, bringing a modern perspective on disco-age glamour, and a spotlight on the diverse and powerful femininity that underscores the FENDI name. With a bold sunset graphic in hues of red, orange, and yellow, the FENDI CAFFE takes over the outdoor corridors of the restaurant and FENDI Boutique. The concept comes to life with illustrations of ‘Lopez Girls’ – focusing on Lopez’s innovative vision on femininity, diversity, inclusivity, and unconventional beauty – emblazoned across the outside of the space. Upon entering, guests will immediately discover the space transformed into a world of FENDI and Antonio Lopez. The space will be adorned with rainbow graphics, and the sketches of ‘Lopez Girls’ come to life in 3D billboard sculptures. The FENDI CAFFE tables embrace the 70’s aesthetic, with the colorful sunset graphics topping each surface. The theme is continued throughout with custom FENDI table settings and takeaway elements, as well as decorative details for the menu’s food and beverage. The hand-sketched version of the FENDI logo inspired by Lopez’s original work for the brand appears throughout elements of the café. The FENDI CAFFE menu includes a fusion of local and Italian favorite breakfast and lunch items, as well as beverages including a signature FF logo cappuccino served in porcelain cups decorated with FENDI’s signature Pequin striped motif. An evening Aperitivo menu will also be offered. Sweet and savory bites will include special FF logo toast and paninis, as well as a variety of pastries and baked goods in special FENDI packaging. 10 Gladys Spring Fashion Issue 2022

FENDI Aventura Pop-Up In collaboration with The Estate and Archive of Antonio Lopez and Juan Ramos, for the FENDI Women’s Spring/Summer 2022 Collection Artistic Director of Couture and Womenswear Kim Jones revived the work of visionary fashion artist Antonio Lopez, bringing a modern perspective on disco-age glamour, and a spotlight on the diverse and powerful femininity that underscores the FENDI name. The dedicated 576 square foot FENDI space draws from the vibrant inspiration of the collection, with Antonio Lopez’s graphics emblazoned across the exterior of the metal structure. The pop-up conceptualizes vintage billboard displays, with ‘Lopez Girls’ showcased in 3D across the structure. The concept comes to life as the illustrations of ‘Lopez Girls’ represent Lopez’s innovative vision on femininity, diversity, inclusivity, and unconventional beauty. Neutral tones pulled from the art works create a clean palette, juxtaposed against the splashes of colorful red, oranges, and yellow hues of the collection. An all-pink fitting room for clients is also included inside the new space. The standalone pop-up store presents the FENDI Women’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection across categories, including the introduction of Ready-to-Wear to the market. A selection of the signature accessories, from the First bag and shoes to the iconic Peekaboo and Baguette bags are displayed on shelves and counters throughout the space. Through powerful mixes of colors, layers, materials and workmanships, icon accessories are transformed into graphic artworks featuring ‘Lopez Girls’, becoming the best expression of luxury and a desirable series of collector’s items.

La Métamorphose

The Triumph of Flowers Photography by

Greg Alexander for Mephistopheles

Spring-Summer 2022 Couture Collection, Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week It is in "Les Indes Galantes", the opera ballet by Jean-Philippe Rameau, that the two designers of La Métamorphose drew their inspiration. And especially these verses: “Triumph, pleasant flowers! Spread your perfumes, Revive your colors! "Inconstant Butterfly, Fly in your bocage!" Stop, Suspend the course Of your fickle flame! 21 looks, unique, entirely handmade in the Maison's workshops. A choice of exceptional materials, all made in France and respectful of the environment: Solstiss lace, silk, satin, tulle, for an impeccable fit! Magical cuts, contrasting royal solar gold with the depth of midnight blue and the lightness of anise green. The flower embroideries required a month of work, cut and painted by hand, another month to create the embroidery on the trouser suit, and two months for the pleating of the dresses. From fitted trouser suits, to evening dresses and more artistic looks, highlighting the House's know-how, the new collection of La Métamorphose demonstrates that art is in the DNA of the creative sisters. The butterfly dress, entirely painted by hand, landing in the extraordinary garden of La Métamorphose, reminds us that our land is this garden, and that there is still time for the flowers to triumph again...

All EYES onYOU Miss Circle Miss Circle is a New York based indie label, with all dresses designed in-house at the brand’s Soho showroom. With several international offices, Miss Circle—which was founded in 2015 by Isabel Deng—is involved in every single step of the manufacturing process: From design, to production, to packaging, Miss Circle controls the whole operation. This allows the label to stay ahead of the trends, and it means that each individual item at Miss Circle is given the care it deserves—quality is top priority. It also means that Miss Circle has a constantly evolving inventory, with new, unique styles introduced every month. Nothing is mass produced. Once an item sells out, it’s onto the next! The origins of Miss Circle involve ambition and enchantment. Founder and owner Isabel Deng moved to New York at the age of 18, and was immediately enraptured by New York City night life: The fancy restaurants, the bars, the events. Most striking was the way the women out-and-about town seemed to dress for themselves. They had attitude! They carried themselves with poise and clearly loved the way they looked. They felt sexy, the vibe was very much “All Eyes On Me.” When Isabel had to think up a name for her line, she thought back to these groups of women, she pictured a circle of them—confident, smart, and glamorous. She also remembered that, coincidently, circle is the English translation of her first name. It was fate, and Miss Circle: All Eyes On Me was born! When asked to define her brand, Isabel likes to say “We are definitively fashion forward. We’re here to make a statement.” This is proven in both the number and diversity of celebrities who’ve been seen wearing Miss Cricle, such as Cardi B, Ashley Graham, Ashanti, reality show stars, pageant contestants, influencers, as well as wildly popular bloggers all throughout the social media sphere. It’s also evidenced in the feedback Miss Circle gets daily, from shoppers who say that their item makes them feel like one of a kind. That’s the goal.

Q&A

IF I HADN'T BECOME an Actress, I MIGHT HAVE CHOSEN to be a journalist! I've always been very passionate about telling stories. WHAT IS YOUR STYLE? I have a feminine sense of style. I gravitate toward pastels and florals. I also love to mix in a few popular streetwear trends. My outfits include a mix of street wear and feminine pieces to give a balanced yet chic look! THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOU? Creative. Compassionate. Collaborative. BEST ADVICE? Surround yourself with people who inspire you. There's always room to grow, so who better to learn from than those who have reached the level you aspire to. WHAT IS THE LATEST PROJECT YOU ARE WORKING ON? I am currently working on a tv show (I can’t say TOO much about that yet). I am in talks to collaborate on an Indie film project this Spring. I'm also writing a few scripts and personal stories that I would love to share in the near future. I love exploring storytelling through virtual production. WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PROJECT? To be a leading actress on a TV show! Photographer|Nick Tabidze

IF I HADN'T BECOME an Actress, I MIGHT HAVE CHOSEN Botany. I'm really into plants right now—and aquaponics. WHAT IS YOUR STYLE? Classic-casual-chic. I'd love to have a more elegant style with coiffed hair and heels and fitted dresses, but my lifestyle is a more everyday classic feel with good materials! THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOU? I love the words “lovely” and “I claim.” But also, “weird” and “whimsical”. BEST ADVICE? My advice is usually “Don't take anyone's advice.” I would also add to that “Get in and listen to your body. Your body, your soul knows all.” WHAT IS THE LATEST PROJECT YOU ARE WORKING ON? I worked on a show recently that was a lovely experience. I can’t say much about it yet, but stay tuned to my social media for updates. I'm also always writing and excited to see what is next. WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PROJECT? I want to be a co-creator and executive producer on an ensemble comedy series that I also get to star in. I would like to have a hand in the creative control of a project I'm working on. Also, if this is not one and the same, I would love to be a series regular on a sitcom. Sitcoms are the best of everything. You build an ensemble that you work with week after week and get to perform in front of a live studio audience. That sounds like heaven to me.

Q&A

IF I HADN'T BECOME an Actress, I MIGHT HAVE CHOSEN TO work in fashion. Dressing up in character for red carpet events or just for a dinner out is a fun form of creativity. My ever-rotating closet of designer classics, vintage finds, and friends’ designs are a constant source of amusement. WHAT IS YOUR STYLE? I like to mix it up. My foundation is classic chic. I’ll sometimes steer back toward old movie star glamour. I also like to throw in a bit of rock n’ roll edge. 3 WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOU? Intuitive. Decisive. Persistent. BEST ADVICE? If you want something: take action toward it. Don’t just dream about it. Don’t talk about your plans. Don’t wait until the time is right and everything is perfect - it never is. Just do it! Action has been the key to all of my success. Nothing happens if you do nothing. WHAT IS THE LATEST PROJECT YOU ARE WORKING ON? My latest project, both as actress and executive producer, is Rumors, a new drama series created by Nicole Veranec and directed by Matthew Viera. My production company The RHL Group joined forces with V Squared Pictures to green-light principle photography and I took on the role of “Ellen” a Hollywood acting teacher. “Ellen” guides her students to work hard, respect their craft and be kind to one another. The story is a message of love with LGBTQ, anti-bullying, friendship, and forgiveness themes. The series and stand-alone feature, beautifully shot by AFI MFA Cinematographer Edward Salerno Jr., has production value way above it’s ultra-low budget. Rumors premiered in New York at Bushwick Film Festival in October, 2021 and received the IndieFEST Film Awards “LGBTQ+ Winner of Excellence” prize. Rumors is currently nominated for 6 Indie Series Awards including me for Best Supporting Actress. WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PROJECT? I’d love to contribute to a successful network drama or comedy series. To be a regular part of a long running show, collaborating with people I like and respect, is my ultimate ideal. I also enjoy making female focused action thrillers. As long as I have a purposeful project I will get up in the morning and keep on keeping on.

Tal Anderson

KNOWN FOR: Amazon Studios’ “As We See It”, Netflix' “Atypical” SOCIAL MEDIA: instagram.com/thetalanderson/, facebook.com/TheTalAnderson/

Tal Anderson is a storyteller and an advocate for change, using her voice and platform as an actor to support inclusion and authentic representation in Hollywood. She is best known for her work in the Netflix series “Atypical” as ‘Sid’ a role specifically developed for her, and as ‘Gia’ in Amazon Studios’ “As We See It.” As an autistic artist, she uses her unique position to advocate for disability rights in the workplace and inclusivity in front and behind the camera in Hollywood. Tal began acting at 15 years old when she struggled with social interaction prompting her mom to sign her up for acting classes. That and her natural curiosity about film making, set her on a path towards a lifelong career. She attended college to better understand the film industry and gained technical skills with a B.S. in Film from Full Sail University, graduating valedictorian. She has furthered her acting training at the Nancy Banks Studio, the Groundlings for comedy and improv, and Voicecaster. She has also appeared in a variety of short films, but one of the projects she is most proud of is a lead role in a national campaign for Delivering Jobs in partnership with Best Buddies and Special Olympics promoting jobs for disabled people. The role in the campaign ran from 2019-2020 and included two PSAs (directed by Jason Zada and Holly Robinson Peete), magazine print ads, and a Times Square takeover. Additionally, every year she makes a film for the Disability Film Challenge, which is sponsored by Adobe, Netflix, PrimeVideo, Sony, and Warner Media, to name a few. Furthering the push for inclusivity she has taken on several passion projects. She is an official ambassador for Awareness Ties, whose mission is to tell stories by real people to create real change. She is a contributor to Neuroclastic, an 54 Gladys Spring Fashion Issue 2022

organization founded by autistic psychology consultant Terra Vance, and led by actually-autistic individuals showcasing autistic perspectives and talents. She is a speaker with The Inspire Project which focuses on empowering students to become leaderstoday through innovative mentorship and action, and whose past speakers include Jada Pinkett Smith, Garth Brooks , and current head of the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum Dr. Kathryn Sullivan. On May 15, 2022 Tal will be speaking on disability representation and authentic portrayal of disability on screen. As Tal navigates through the entertainment industry, she hopes to see the opportunities for all roles expand to neuro-diverse actors, regardless of the character description. She hopes to see more studios commit to hiring people with disabilities in front of and behind the camera, and the day when inclusion and representation is no longer something you have to fight for, but instead something that has become the norm. She is firm in her belief that everyone deserves to turn on the TV and see themselves represented on screen, especially children as they grow into their own. Tal’s favorite part of acting is the process of breaking down a scene and character, and the challenge of analyzing the who, what, where, when, and why of a role. When she’s not acting, she flexes her creative muscles with editing and writing. She’s an avid horror movie fan, lover of rock music, and is a true crime enthusiast. When it comes to her presence in the public eye, she wants people to see her as a real person who’s doing their job authentically and doing their best to advocate for equality and disability. She has permanently relocated to Los Angeles, where she lives with her cat Winfred.

IF I HADN'T BECOME a Business Owner, I MIGHT HAVE BEEN working in corporate for a luxury fashion brand. WHAT IS YOUR STYLE? My style is forever changing and right now I’d describe it as casual cool.

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE? My style is so eclectic really! When I’m on stage and in my office doing what I love, I'm all here for a sick bomber jacket, simple T, fun jeans, and some CL Redbottom sneakers! When in doubt, black it out! And summer time, well dont’t judge me when I look like a straight boy with shorts and a t-shirt and not having one care in the world! LOL! THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOU? Unapologetic, Light, Love. BEST ADVICE? Love yourself. Above all else, love yourself. Fall in love with loving yourself. When you truly love yourself, flaws and all, everything else just seems to fall into place! WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY WORKING ON? A project with my amazing team that helps address the inner beauty as much as the outer beauty. In my line of aesthetics, we see people get so caught up in the vanity of the outer appearance, while we ignore what’s really going on with the inside. No amount of dermal fillers or skincare can fix the inside. So we are working to bring an incredible project that will change the world! WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PROJECT? See above! Currently living it!

THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOU: Bad at questionnaires. BEST ADVICE: “You may go through most of your life fearing failure. One day you’ll get your big break and finally believe you're as talented and worthy as you are. Then something may happen and you’ll have to start all over. But the most important thing is to ALWAYS wear sunscreen”.Me as a mom WHAT’S THE LATEST PROJECT YOU’RE WORKING ON: The Bear (FX/Hulu)- We are currently shooting the first season right now in Chicago. Lots of tattoos, sweat and dirt. I am typing this very slowly in 20F degree weather during an exterior scene sitting on an apple box like the glamorous artist that I am. WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PROJECT: Film makeup art appeals to me more so than any other type of fine art because of its big contribution to telling the story on screen. I’d love to eventually executive produce as a department head on a series.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU? From a business perspective, I am inspired by the PR industry as a whole. When I started the company nearly 11 years ago, the media landscape was so different than it is today. There were many more print magazines, and online

62 Gladys Spring Fashion Issue 2022

media opportunities weren’t nearly as plentiful. As the way we consume content has changed, I’m inspired by how media outlets have adapted to provide unique press opportunities for talent to promote their projects. WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT WHAT YOU DO? There is no typical day. I could spend one day entirely focused on pitching clients to press, and the next I could be planning an event or walking a client down the red carpet. There is no such thing as monotony or boredom in PR and that is what makes it so interesting. Every client is unique as well, with different PR goals and ideas for building their brand. Getting to know each of them and how we can use their projects, hobbies, and interests to build pitches for their PR campaigns is one of the most interesting parts of the job. HOW DO YOU DEFINE SUCCESS? For me, success is as simple as making my clients happy. When I first started out in the industry, I never imagined that I would have my own PR firm. I started the business with Melanie DuPont, who is our Vice President of Talent Relations, and she is my right hand in our day-to-day operations. The company wouldn’t be where it is today without the two of us working together as a duo since day one. Starting a business from the ground up was a huge leap of faith, but I am proud of the company I have built and the relationships I have with my clients. Every time I get to send one of them an email with a new press opportunity, whether it be a magazine feature or a TV appearance, I consider that a huge success. WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU? As we move forward in 2022, my goal is simple: Continue adding top-tier talent to our roster and cultivating new relationships that will lead to more opportunities for my clients.

Rising Stars Singer!

Heaven Lee

KNOWN FOR: Singer/Songwriter SOCIAL MEDIA: @heaven_lee_sings Heaven Lee is not your typical rising star in Los Angeles. She is an unbelievably hard-working, humble, unconventional, and truly relatable artist. Although her voice has been compared to power-houses like Adele and Amy Winehouse, Heaven's musical and production passions align with alternative artists like Paramore and Panic! At The Disco. There's a polished grittiness to her that resonates with a lot of her peers, from pop to rock lovers. Graduating from high school at age 16, Heaven got her Associates Degree in Audio Engineering from Los Angeles Recording School shortly after. She appeared as a contestant on American Idol, where Lionel Ritchie was in utter awe of her vocal capabilities. At age 19, she was awarded IMSTA FESTA's songwriter of the year at the 2020 TEC Awards show, where luminaries such as Herbie Hancock, Joni Mitchell, and Dave Pensado were also honored. She was nominated alongside contemporary greats Billie Eilish and Finneas O'Connell. Heaven recently signed with Syryn Records, a non-profit, youth-run record label that is uplifting and moving the needle for talented young women and gender-expansive folks. Through this new collaboration, she will be releasing her first official single in 2022, with a record to follow. Watch out for Heaven Lee, you'll be singing along to her songs for many years to come! Photography| Arna Behar

Gladys Wine & Dine

The Fashion Forward Grape Le Grand Verre Single Serve Wine by Karen Holly Berliner

Wine and fashion, fashion and wine.

We all have our particulars about the clothing that we choose to wear; also the wine that we choose to drink. All of those involved in the intricate process of making fine wine, must interpret it but also must think about those who want to drink it, how to make the wine- with what tools, how to manage the land and the vineyards and so much more. When you think about it, so too do the designers of fine clothing. The same thought process is perhaps used when creating a tailored dress; the creativity, sensitivity, talent of those who produce it, but clear emphasis on being tailor-made for those who wear it. Such is the case with Le Grand Verre; a single serve, award-winning, ethically produced, family owned and predominantly female-made artisanal wine collection of France. Expect a diverse collection of red, white, and rosé quality wines, sourced from boutique estates in Languedoc, the South of France and Bordeaux, perfectly suited for the discerning palate. (At 6.3 oz. each - slightly larger than your average pour) Patented and designed by the LGV Trio (three French wine-loving friends turned entrepreneurs Nicolas Deffrennes, Régis Fanget, and Valérian Déjours and made with recycled double-coated PET packaging, LGV is a single serve wine, in a slim, trim attractive bottle, best not to be shared, maybe a sip stolen here and there but truly just a wine pour and then some for you.

Grand Verre Domaine Caylus Rosé 2020.

Tucked in the southern coast of France in the Languedoc-Roussillon winemaking region, Pays d’Herault offers complexity in its rosé achieved via LGV’s partnership with Inès Andrieu of Domaine Caylus, an organic 64 Gladys Spring Fashion Issue 2022

estate known for this blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache and here’s a fun fact: Pays installed music in the vines emitting sequences that allow crops to better resist disease, adapt to variations in the environment and ultimately grow better. This refreshing rosé is full of strawberry, tropical fruit, and pineapple. Le Grand Verre Domaine Prataviera 2019 envisioned by oenologist Elisabeth Prataviera, this wine is a 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Côtes de Gascogne near the village of Gascony known for producing spectacular white wines in the South of France. She sustainably farms vineyards using organic fertilizers exclusively and holds a Certified High Environmental Value Level 3. Harvesting is done only at night or early morning to preserve aromas and avoid oxidation. Her Sauvignon Blanc is an aromatic white wine with intense citrus and fruity tropical aromas and flavors that leave you with a lean mineral finish in the palate.

Le Grand Verre Château Peyredon 2019

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (63%) and Merlot (37%), this classic Bordeaux is very smooth with refined tannins on the palate. On the nose you will notice blackberry and notes of strawberry and vanilla. Laurence Dupuch of Château Peyredon Lagravette works in tandem with her husband Stephane Dupuch to produce this wine with fruit picked from vines over 100 years old. Sure to capture the attention of even the most particular oenophile crowd, single serve Crus Bourgeois should be savored with every sip.

If only wine could stroll the cat walk!

Shana Gulati Raised in a small suburb in Chhattisgarh, a state in Central India, Shana made her way to New York at the age of eight. She is constantly inspired by the selflessness of her parents as they left everything behind to create better lives for Shana and her brother. After pursuing a degree in law out of respect for her parent's sacrifices, she fell in love with New York City and began living there permanently after a brief stay in London. In 2001, Shana took the city by storm living as a modern and independent woman. Her drive to reconnect with her also led her to explore her love for storytelling, travel, and adventure. Shana's first piece, "Lady Kismet" was the symbol for her new beginning. The idea came from her father, and the name has Arabic origins and translates to "destiny". This piece was the key to understanding her parents, family, and culture. In early 2021, she began breaking away from a traditional career path and following her dreams of designing jewelry, connecting with other women, and building her business through India. After returning to her second home, Jaipur, she was challenged with many obstacles but continued on her path to success. After persevering and conquering various setbacks, she began making her own pieces in June of 2021! Her strong team now consists of artisans and friends that have become part of her foundation and family. Lady Kismet became Shana Gulati Jewelry, and Shana dedicates select pieces to her loved ones including her parents, her brother, and nieces. What began as a love for accessories turned into a successful tribute to her culture of India and New York City, creative storytelling, and an outlet for connecting to like-minded women from all around the world. shanagulati.com

G ladys Exclusive Interview having spent any time with me or anything, they just assumed I was going to be like, ‘Well, now no one is going to tell me what to do.’” “I think maybe because I was a woman, that the directors felt that way. And maybe it was even unconscious bias that they would do it to a woman and not a man. But they didn’t want a woman to potentially cause them any problems. They wanted to make sure I knew my place, and it probably wouldn’t happen to a man.” ON HOW SHE WON HER ICONIC ROLE IN THELMA & LOUISE & BRAD PITT: “I had read the script for Thelma & Louise after it had already been cast. I thought, ‘Oh my God! This is the best script I’ve ever read. I wish I could be in it.’ I ended up having a year-long pursuit for the role, because Ridley Scott was only the producer at that time, and different directors and different pairings of ‘Thelmas’ and ‘Louises’ were coming together and falling apart. For a year, my agent called at least once a week to say, ‘Just so you know, Geena is still available. She’s still interested.’ Then when [Ridley Scott] decided he was going to direct it, he immediately said, ‘Yes. Okay sure, I’ll meet with her,’ and I convinced him somehow or another (laugh).” “They then cast Brad Pitt to be my sort of…. love interest, and it wasn’t actually because he was younger. They didn’t purposely try to cast someone younger than me. He just gave the best audition and he was the best choice. But I thought that was pretty cool. He’s only, like, seven years younger than me, but I thought that was quite cool that they did that.”

Geena Davis

Geena Davis Talks Oscars, Thelma & Louise, Hollywood’s Gender Bias Interview by Allison Kugel ON WHAT SHE LEARNED FROM WORKING WITH SUSAN SARANDON ON THELMA & LOUISE: “Getting to work with Susan Sarandon on Thelma & Louise, she had the most impact of any person in my life, because I’d never really spent time with a woman who moves through the world the way she does. It sounds crazy to be 33 years old at the time and first experiencing a woman like that, but I really had previously never met a woman who didn’t preface everything with, ‘Well, I don’t know what you will think and this is probably a stupid idea, but…’ She just lived her life and said, ‘This is what I think.’ “[It was received by our director and producers] as completely normal, which was also stunning to me. The way I was raised was to be extremely polite, to a fault. I was sort of trained not to ask for things and not to be any trouble to anybody, but she obviously wasn’t (laughs). So she just said things the way she wanted to say them, like, ‘Let’s cut this line,’ or ‘Let’s do it this way,’ or ‘This is what I would like to do.’ There wasn’t any reaction whatsoever from anybody of, like, ‘Wow!,’ partly because she didn’t present herself as combative. She was always just like, ‘This is what I want,’ and ‘This is what I think.’ ON HOW WINNING AN OSCAR AFFECTED HOW DIRECTORS TREATED HER: “Speaking of winning the Oscar and does it change how people see you and everything, I had two directors, after I won the Oscar, who I had a rocky start with, because they assumed that I was going to think I was all that and they wanted to make sure I didn’t feel like I was all that. Without having met me or 84 Gladys Spring Fashion Issue 2022

ON AGEISM IN HOLLYWOOD: “It’s very strange and so prevalent. A certain male actor that was making a movie said that I was too old to be his romantic interest, and I was 20 years younger than him. You know what it is? Women peak in their 20s and 30s, and men peak in their 40s and 50s as far as actors go. So the male stars of the movies want to appear to be younger than they are, or they want to appeal to younger people, so they always want a co-star who is really young. That is why that happens and that is why women don’t get cast very much after 40 and 50. It is because they are felt to be too old to be a romantic interest.” ON WHY SHE FOUNDED THE GEENA DAVIS INSTITUTE ON GENDER IN MEDIA: “In the ‘90s when Thelma & Louise really took off and struck a nerve, the press, as one united body, said, ‘This will change everything.’ That was all the headlines. “Now everything is going to change. There will be so many more movies starring woman.’ I thought, ‘Hot dog! I’m going to sit here and wait for this to happen.’ Then my very next movie was A League of Their Own, and a similar thing happened where all the press said, ‘This changes everything. Now we are going to see woman in sports movies.’ It was a very big hit. I’m thinking ‘Okay. Here is me being able to change the world!’ or being part of movies that will change everything, and it profoundly did not happen.” ON RAISING HER KIDS TO BE FEMINISTS: “I wanted to be [my daughter’s] pop culture literacy educator. That is why I started the whole institute. I realized when I saw that very first kid’s television program with her, I thought, ‘Oh no. Kids are being raised from minute one to accept that men and boys are more important than woman and girls. I can’t prevent her from growing up knowing that woman are thought of as second class citizens, but I’ll do everything I can to change that for her.’ With her and with my boys, I did the same thing. I always watched with them. Whatever my boys were watching, I would say, ‘Did you know that there is only one girl in that whole movie? Did you notice that?’ Or, ‘Do you think girls can do what those boys are doing?’ Or, ‘Why do you think she is wearing that if she is going to go rescue somebody? Don’t you think that’s strange?’ They became very savvy. Then they started noticing things before I did.” About Journalist and Podcast Host Allison Kugel

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN THREE WORDS? Compassionate, Determined, Driven. HOW DID YOU GET TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY? Through persistence and hard work. When one door slammed shut, I knocked down walls to create my own door to go through.

Gladys Interview

WHAT’S UP NEXT FOR YOU? I will continue to enjoy my coaching business and hope to come out with my own vegan cooking show and or cookbook soon! Instagram: @ashley_ _wilke Apply for my program: info.jackedvegans.com/ashley-free-consultation

WHAT INSPIRES YOU? I am inspired by nature, animal sanctuaries, the ocean, and people who aren't afraid to stand up for what they believe in. WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GO VEGAN? I've always been a huge animal lover and was vegetarian from a young age. Once I learned that the dairy and egg industry is just as horrifying and inhumane as the meat industry is, I knew I needed to go completely plant-based. I wanted no part in contributing to any animal's suffering. WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT WHAT YOU DO? While there are many fitness coaches out there, very few focus on incorporating vegan nutrition. I'm a certified plant based nutritionist and am able to help my clients learn how to fuel their bodies with plants to achieve their fitness goals. BEST ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER BEEN GIVEN? The best advice I've ever been given is, "If it won't matter in 5 years from now, it's not worth stressing about for more than 5 minutes." WHAT HAVE YOU ENJOYED MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB? The best part about my job is watching someone gain their confidence back. WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED FROM EVERYTHING THAT YOU HAVE BEEN THROUGH IN LIFE? The biggest lesson I have learned is to follow your passions and stick up for your beliefs and values. You never know who you may be influencing along the way. HOW DO YOU DEFINE SUCCESS? Happiness is success to me. As long as I'm happy and making a difference in this world, I'm successful. Gladys Spring Fashion Issue 2022 93

Q&A

IF I HADN'T BECOME A Performance Artist, I MIGHT HAVE CHOSEN Photography, Stylist, or Producer. I’m a real creative, I love putting things together! WHAT IS YOUR STYLE? I like to mix it up between avant-garde, retro, & funky but tend to lean more towards edgy looks. I love finding unique items and collecting them. I like designer pieces of course but style for me is not always about the label, it’s about the overall look and how you serve it! THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOU? Intuitive, Ambitious, Versatile. BEST ADVICE? Don’t get out of line before it’s your turn! WHAT IS THE LATEST PROJECT YOU ARE WORKING ON? I’m working on a few movie projects that I’m super excited about with some amazingly talented people.

IF I HADN'T BECOME A Writer, I MIGHT HAVE CHOSEN to work in nature. I think I'm happiest when I'm outside and have my hands in the dirt. WHAT IS YOUR STYLE? I like to be comfy, first and foremost--but that doesn't mean you can't have some flair! I really love classic looks that never go out of style, like a plain white tee and a nice leather jacket. THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOU? Realistic, introverted, and straightforward. I know, it doesn't sound like I'd be very fun at a party! BEST ADVICE? I think my best advice to anyone, no matter what age, is that nobody really knows what's going on in most instances. The truth of the matter is: we're all learning, all the time. WHAT IS THE LATEST PROJECT YOU ARE WORKING ON? Our inclusive live room, "A Gay in the Life," on Spotify Greenroom! WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PROJECT? This sounds insanely nerdy, but my dream writing project would be to develop the popular Nintendo game series The Legend of Zelda into a TV series. It could be epic!

Eccentric, with a splash of Greenwich village beat poet and a touch of midcentury Parisian farmer. THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOU? 3 words to describe me… either loud, warm, and passionate or authentic, funny, and introspective… either group of three… I’m also always hungry … for food… I’m also erratic.

Q&A

IF I HADN'T BECOME AN Actor, I MIGHT HAVE CHOSEN A job in politics.

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE? Casual comfortable. I would never get dressed up or put on makeup if I didn't need too.

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE? Thrifty - I love thrifting so my style varies. Right now, I’m loving trousers and men’s sweater vests with gold jewelry.

THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOU? Friendly, intelligent, funny and fiscally responsible or energetic, if you need a few more.

THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOU? Warm, determined and bubbly.

BEST ADVICE? Trust God.

BEST ADVICE? If it’s not going to matter in 5 years, don’t worry about it.

WHAT IS THE LATEST PROJECT YOU ARE WORKING ON? I finished filming 7 of 8 episodes for season 1 of 'The Kings of Napa,' and waiting to find out if it gets picked up for season two. I recently shot an AT&T superbowl commercial with Demi Moore and Mila Kunis which is currently running. I continue to do voice-over work and audition. WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PROJECT? I would love to do projects that have an inspirational message. It's been such a challenging, dark season in our country, I would like to do message oriented projects that spread joy, hope, inspiration and laughter. And a huge Disney or Dreamworks animated movie like "Frozen", "The Lion King" "Moana" "Shrek."

WHAT IS THE LATEST PROJECT YOU ARE WORKING ON? A dark script called “Daughter” where the main character finds out a family secret. WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PROJECT? I would love to play roles that tell stories of the anti-hero, like Dolores in "Westworld" or Ruth in "Ozark". Characters who are strong women driven by good intentions - protecting family or others - but have to do whatever it takes to in order to do that. I love the tension that creates. You may root for them even if they’re doing “bad” things because you know that they had a dark past or you can understand their ultimate goal. Like The Bride in "Kill Bill" - if they ever make Kill Bill 3, my ultimate dream is to play her daughter. Gladys Spring Fashion Issue 2022 105

Where Everybody Knows Your Name Miriam Restaurant (Upper West Side, NYC) by Karen Holly Berliner Miriam Restaurant, the flagship dining spot that launched Chef Rafael Hasid’s premier restaurant ventures, has been one of upscale and trendy Park Slope Brooklyn’s most beloved and esteemed restaurants for close to two decades now. Given its popularity, what better than to open up a sister restaurant, plunked right in the history infused brownstone heavy Upper West Side in Manhattan? Located on the corner of 74th Street & Amsterdam, there is a certain warmth and old school neighborhood feel to this location; the residents being a lovely synergy of diehard original Manhattan residents and new comers alike, and the visitors for work or pleasure becoming themselves a part of this magic, many enjoying the hustle and bustle without the edge, you might say. This is a location that begs for a go to dining spot, to step out of the clamor, the shopping and the business of living and into a beautifully decorated dining space, which is dedicated beyond measure, to serving consistently delicious food, beautifully plated and meticulously presented to boot. Miriam’s second location is a collaborative design between Chef Rafi and Barak Pliskin of Pliskin Architecture with a New York and Mediterranean vibe. This Upper West Side location echoes design elements of the first restaurant, including the Mediterranean arches and original tiles from the Park Slope location. The open dining room showcases a sprawling brass and terrazzo bar along with vibrant aquamarine banquettes. Custom lighting designed by Krista Ninivaggi complements the matching rose gold bar mirrors expressed in ovular brass sconces to softly illuminate the space. Walnut tables and chairs fill the dining room and greenery peppered throughout; creates an inviting all-day Mediterranean bistro. If looking to dine al fresco, outdoor seating is ample. Enjoy people watching, sip, eat and savor.

At Miriam the cuisine is distinctly Israeli, offering a seasonal menu with many ingredients imported straight from Israel to assure authenticity. The menu is full of variety, allowing choices for the less adventurous palates to the most discerning. Featuring traditional Middle Eastern favorites, there are an assortment of tasty dishes which please all while still maintaining the ethnic flare expressed in particular flavors, spices and preparation style. Some of the very popular main courses include Braised Short Ribs; tamarind braised beef short rib served with a savory sweet potato latke over labneh and string beans, hearty but at the same time no knife necessary as it cuts with a buttery softness. The Lamb Shawarma is impressive, presented under perfectly browned baked dough, served in a Terra Cotta bowl and opened up by your server table side, allowing the fragrant steam to pipe out and give you a preview of what’s to be eaten, served with herbed rice, roasted tomatoes, sumac red onion and a tahini yogurt sauce. The Falafel Platter is signature; vegan falafel balls made of a mixture of chickpeas and fava beans served with hummus, an Israeli salad, green tahini, mango chutney and warm pita bread. Add an assorted dips plate and you have the makings of a feast. Looking for breakfast or brunch? The signature brunch includes Jerusalem Breakfast; two eggs any style, avocado salad, fresh tomatoes, pickles and tahini or a must try is the Challah French Toast, with vanilla and topped with halva and berries. Don’t be surprised if Chef Rafi himself meanders over to your table, to quietly make sure to your every fancy! Return for seconds and thirds as you likely will, and he might very well “know your name”. miriamrestaurant.com Gladys Spring Fashion Issue 2022 109
