hello


BODY SHOTS

Was it really just last November that Cindy Crawford, speaking to a German publication, lamented that if she were a model today, she would never have made it big? A healthy figure like hers, she explained—with breasts and hips—simply wasn’t what the industry was looking for. Fast forward four months to the Fall 2010 collections, and, boy, how the fashion pendulum has swung. At Prada and Louis Vuitton, we saw curvy women like Elle Macpherson, Miranda Kerr, Adriana Lima, and Lara Stone filling out cleavage-baring dresses like no skinny 16-year-old could even dream of doing. Suddenly sexy, bombshell bodies are exactly what the industry is looking for, and this issue is an all-out celebration of them! It’s funny though—as forward-thinking as the fashion world is, the idea of showing off such gorgeous bodies (at least in America) still makes people squirm. Boobs and butts may be in, but god forbid you reveal too much of them. Thing is, breaking rules and changing perceptions is what we at V do best, and with that, we present our first-ever scratch-off covers. Shot by Mario Sorrenti, they feature Isabeli Fontana, Eniko Mihalik, Lily Donaldson, and Natasha Poly baring it all and looking unbelievably beautiful doing so. Of course, we’re not allowed to sell the scratch-offs on newsstands, but they’re available at vmagazine.com/shop in an extremely limited-edition run. (In fact, they might be gone by the time you log on.) All these fantastic bodies, somebody’s gotta flaunt them! Mr. V

Arny FreytAg

Playboy ’s Prolific lensman has crafted imagery that’s both incredibly honest and totally over-the-toP. the legacy of the female nude may rest in his hands Arny Freytag, the man who gave nude glamour shots a good name, has photographed more Playboy centerfolds than anyone else. This is the first sentence typically used to describe him; it will probably be one of the first lines in his obituary, unless someone supplants him, which seems unlikely. “I can’t shoot a bowl of strawberries to save my life,” he says. “Some guys are really good at still life—it’s a specialty. My specialty is shooting women.” As chief photographer for the House of Hef since 1976, 60-year-old Freytag has shot famous women who got that way by getting naked—Pamela Anderson, Carmen Electra, Caprice Bourret, and countless others. “I’ve honestly lost track of the number,” says Freytag. “I had a book on my coffee table that I never looked at that closely. One day my niece said, ‘Hey, Uncle Arny, did you know you have the record for most centerfolds?’ And I said, ‘No, I didn’t know that.’ And she said, ‘Yeah, 69!’ What a funny number to land on. But that was years ago now.” His fate seems to have been predestined. Once his professor suggested he could make a living shooting Playmates, Freytag started snapping. His first nude shot landed him the Playboy gig while he was still in art school. “I shot all the girls in my neighborhood,” Freytag recalls. “One day I brought in a backlit photo of a girl naked—just a profile, nothing showing. My professor said, ‘There’s an internship I can set up for you, if you want it.’ And that’s how it started.” Today, Freytag’s official website touts his special talent for capturing the beauty and sexuality of women. “I don’t know what it is, actually,” says the king of the Vaseline lens. “I’m not threatening; I treat them really well. My girls are amateurs. Some of them haven’t been photographed at all besides their graduation picture. They’re off the farm, from Ohio, Nebraska. They come to me, they’re scared to death. I have a way of finding, with every girl I shoot, an angle or look that’s going to work. I don’t do blanket lighting. I find out what makes them look the best.” 28

The key to a good nude photo, says Freytag, is lending an imperfect body the illusion of perfection. “A lot of our girls don’t look like that in person, but believe it or not, in Playboy we don’t photoshop that much,” he says. “People say we do, but we don’t. When I started shooting centerfolds, Photoshop didn’t exist. We were trained to use lighting, posing, and clothes to hide flaws and accent the best parts of the girl. It’s the opposite of fashion guys. Fashion guys want to make the clothes look great. I know how to make the body look great.” His favorite subjects have been, perhaps unsurprisingly, Electra and Anderson. “They’re electrifying,” he says. “They’re like the top models of fashion—of Playboy. They know how to look right, how to move their bodies, and you’re guaranteed beautiful pictures. The new girls all say, ‘We all want to be like Pam.’ And I say, go home and study your face tonight. Look in a mirror, learn your body, because that’s what Pam does. She spends days just studying how she looks.” Freytag’s other notable centerfolds include one of the magazine’s most infamous: Patti Reagan, daughter of Ronald, in her hell-raising prime. “I think she had some anger issues toward her father,” Freytag says wryly. “But she was great.” He is proudest of 2004’s Women of the Olympics, for which he posed the athletes in natural settings, the rare Playboy pictorial that received positive attention from The New York Times. “I had a ton of wardrobe and ended up using none of it,” he recalls. “The athletes were just spectacularly fit. We got letters saying, ‘Thank you for taking the magazine to a different level.’” Freytag still shoots six days a week. He has no idea how big his archives are, because Playboy owns everything. “If you want to work there, that’s the deal,” he explains. “If I’d owned the copyrights, I’d be retired by now. I understand it from their perspective, because they reuse things so many times. I accepted it for what it was, because it was worth it to me to travel and work with the people I worked with. It’s the best magazine of its kind in the world. You can’t get any better. You can only go sideways or down.” And yet he never thought he could make a living as a photographer. “When I was getting ready to graduate from art school, I was worried. What am I going to do? I don’t like shooting cars, jewelry, commercial things. All I liked was shooting girls. Then my teacher suggested Playboy.” And then it all clicked.

the fearless actress and almodóvar muse may have settled into the simPle life, but she’ll always be Punk to the core Described by many as a Picasso come-to-life, Rossy de Palma broke the rules of beauty two decades ago when she starred in Pedro Almodóvar’s Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, and became a model and muse for designers like Jean-Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler, and Sybilla. Her status as an iconic fashion character was further cemented with her role in Robert Altman’s 1994 satirical fashion film Prêt-à-Porter. Today, she is a theater actress, charity spokesperson, and the face of luxury ad campaigns, and remains, as always, a charismatic personality with an insatiable lust for life. Luis Venegas LUIS VENEGAS Rossy, you are unstoppable. What have you been doing recently? I heard you have been collaborating with Louis Vuitton and Christian Louboutin. ROSSY DE PALMA Yes, I recently did a charity project with Louis Vuitton for OrphanAid Africa, an organization that helps the children of Ghana. It consisted of a limited-edition col30

lection of fans designed by me. They sold very well. And yes, I wore Christian Louboutin shoes in my latest show, (des) Variaciones Goldberg. LV You are clearly a star in Spain, but your worldwide fame has been increasing. RDP I consider myself a citizen of Earth. I like the human being to move free, without frontiers. The only frontiers I believe in are astronomical, and those must be celebrated. When I was a child, my father told me, ‘You are worldwide!’ and I believed him. LV How do your parents feel about your success? RDP They’re more concerned with the many ups and downs of this profession. They don’t care about the fame. LV And how do your children feel about it? RDP They are very proud. I try to let them enjoy some of the benefits of my life. For example, going to the opening night of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. We share an intimate bond because they are also like little artists, even though they are 11 and 12 years old. LV Is it difficult to manage your lifestyle with theirs? RDP Yes, it can be pretty difficult. I am a single mother, so I face everything by myself. But now that they are older, I am more free to travel. I don’t complain. LV There is a generation of young Spanish people who know you as the sophisticated woman you are today. They probably don’t know about your underground rocker beginnings and your involvement with the Spanish counter-culture movement La Movida Madrileña. RDP There are probably people who don’t know who I am at all. I am grateful to have experienced La Movida. Everything was

fresh and wonderfully unself-conscious—two characteristics that I identify with. And who knows, maybe it could come back. Somehow the economic crisis and the Internet revolution have pushed people to the concept of “just do it, don’t wait around for the chance.” And that’s what we did back then. LV I have also heard that you have interest in becoming a singer? RDP I am pregnant with songs, it’s true, and sooner or later they will see the light. The problem is that I have so many projects going on, and music requires so much attention. LV What’s your music like? RDP Very eclectic: blues and spoken poetry, mixed with jazz and electronica. LV Surprising! The desire to do new things, is that what feeds the artist? RDP Yes, I never get bored. I never plan anything, and I take things as the come. With each new project, I imagine people saying, “Look, she’s taking risks.” I feel we should never stop challenging ourselves. Deep inside, I am still that child that moved from Mallorca to Madrid when “La Movida” was happening. We grow old only on the outside. Inside, we remain absolutely fabulous. LV How do you define yourself? RDP I am an anarchist and an individualist. I don’t like to be associated with stereotypes. I prefer not to be defined, to keep my field of action as open as possible. I don’t even completely know myself! It’s fundamental to maintain a certain lack of selfknowledge and to keep on discovering things about yourself. It would be terrible to completely know oneself. LV So “chica Almodóvar” once, “chica Almodóvar” forever? RDP Oh, that little label never bothered me. The fact that they continue to call me “chica” keeps me forever young. I was born in cinema with Pedro, and I have learned the best of that profession with him. LV Will you always be available when Pedro Almodóvar calls you? RDP Oh, yes, of course. I have not played a main role in any of his movies for a long time, but I did a cameo in Broken Embraces, and it was great—I had a lot of fun. LV In addition to all we have discussed, you still make time to explore meditation and yoga. RDP I like Taoist philosophy, yes. I don’t meditate as much as I’d like to, but I do a lot of Tai Chi and yoga. I also dance. I am returning to my roots as a dancer. I don’t want to grow old and regret not doing things. LV I think that as long as you keep that spirit, you will never be old. RDP I agree. But whenever it happens, I can always try sculpting and writing. Things that don’t require much physical effort. LV What is your relationship with designers like Jean-Paul Gaultier and Louboutin? RDP Jean-Paul is a lovely person. He is very talented, just like everyone I have been lucky enough to work with in Paris: Azzedine Alaïa, Thierry Mugler, Christian Louboutin. We share the same universe and we have a lot of fun. Maybe these relations are not the kind that we cultivate day to day, but when we meet, it is like no time has passed. LV Do you still like to have fun with fashion, or are you more practical? RDP I prefer classics, honestly. Jean-Paul Gaultier or Alaïa. But you know, I would love to make my own little collection. I am always imagining shapes and dresses. The fashion world is very funny. As I said before, everything comes back, and that’s very stimulating. I did a Bryan Ferry video in the ’90s. You can check it on YouTube. Recently I watched it and realized my look was so Amy Winehouse! Everything comes back, tattoos, burlesque... but different interpretations. LV As a woman with so many interests, what would you like to happen to the world? RDP The end of famine and lobotomy of religions.

AlejAndro jodorowsky

whether or not the brilliant shaman of exPerimental film stages his return next year, his twisted and beautiful movies will continue to astound and Provoke At 81 years old, Alejandro Jodorowsky is a living legend, once considered among certain drug-fueled circles to be the cinematic heir apparent to Luis Buñuel and Federico Fellini. In the 1970s, the mind-blowing Chilean-born symbolist confounded, shocked, and amazed audiences with a pair of films, El Topo and The Holy Mountain, which tell mythic tales of spiritual transformation and include scenes of castration, defecation, nudity, amputees, midgets, mass killings, gushing blood, crucifixes, frogs, dead rabbits, and, well, you name it. Primal, provocative, and just plain weird, Jodorowsky’s movies defy easy synopsizing and conventional sense, while evoking Sergio Leone, Siddhartha, and the social satire of Monty Python. As he once said, “Most directors make films with their eyes; I make films with my testicles.” Over the last two decades, the announcement of an upcoming film by the cult director, tarot-card master, and self-described “psychomagician” is something of an annual rite of passage. In the late ’90s, he revealed that a sequel to El Topo was in the works. Then came the announcement of King Shot—a “metaphysical spaghetti gangster movie” that, over the years, had various stars attached, including Marilyn Manson, Nick Nolte, and Asia Argento. Last year, a Hungarian mogul raised $7.4 million for King Shot, with a shooting start-date set for early October. But, alas, as with Jodorowsky’s once planned epic adaptation of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi chronicle Dune, fans would have to settle for mere storyboards. A new film from their cinematic hero would remain just a dream—until, quite possibly, now. Together with a pool of investors from Moscow and England, Russian producers are hoping to make Jodorowsky’s longawaited comeback a reality. The upcoming film, called Abel Cain, traces the adventures of El Topo’s two sons, one good, one evil, across a postapocalyptic landscape as they deliver their dead mother to their father’s grave. The production hopes to begin shooting in late 2010 or early 2011, possibly in Mexico or New Mexico. According to Russian producer Arcadiy Golubovich, the film is not a sequel to El Topo, per se, but is being represented as such, mainly for legal, not creative, reasons. (The estate of Allen Klein, the late ABKCO Records executive, who once repped the Beatles and owns the rights to El Topo and The Holy Mountain, would otherwise have dibs on the project.) Jodorowsky refused to do an interview about the film, because, he said, “he is not ready artistically.” Golubovich didn’t know much about Jodorowsky when he first heard about the script. But like others who have fallen down the filmmaker’s rabbit hole, he was quickly sucked in. “I immediately fell in love with the message and the philosophy,” he says. “As I see it, Alejandro is saying everybody deserves forgiveness, and everybody has good and evil inside them. And it’s not God who is going to forgive you; it’s your choice.” When El Topo was shown at midnight screenings in 1970, critics and celebrities swore they had witnessed the second coming of cinema. The Los Angeles Free Press called it “the greatest film ever made.” Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda offered to appear in Jodorowsky’s next film. And John Lennon and Yoko Ono urged Allen Klein to scoop up the rights and finance his next picture. “John convinced him that it would be a blockbuster success,” says Ono, recalling their involvement in The Holy Mountain. “That did it.”

“We, of course, loved the philosophy of life expressed in it,” says Ono now, reflecting on the film’s mix of Buddhism, antiauthoritarianism, and personal transcendence. “It was right up our alley. We kept saying to each other during the screening of the film, ‘But that’s us, isn’t it?’” Ono also notes the importance of the film’s fashion. “We felt we were on the same page in terms of the clothes worn by the hero: skintight black. We were especially loving the hat.” Deeply entrenched in a ’70s psychedelic mode—flared pants, big hats, and svelte naked bodies in El Topo; rainbow colors, oblong curvilinear spaces, and zooming cameras in The Holy Mountain—Jodorowsky’s style continues to inspire artists today, from filmmakers (David Lynch, William Friedkin) to video game designers (Japan’s Goichi Suda) to musicians (Peter Gabriel, Marilyn Manson, Erykah Badu). Manson is such a fan that he asked the director to officiate at his wedding to Dita Von Teese in 2005. And you can see Jodorowsky-inspired imagery in Manson’s 1998 video for “The Dope Show.” More recently, British music-video director Nima Nourizadeh paid homage to The Holy Mountain in Santigold’s 2008 video for “L.E.S. Artistes,” in which strawberries, green goo, and other sundry substances erupt from people’s open wounds, as they do in the film. Jodorowsky’s presence as both inspirational shaman and contemporary artist isn’t fading. Last November, he exhibited

a series of paintings at London’s The Horse Hospital. Over the years, comic books have become a medium of choice—far cheaper to produce than movies—and he’s nothing if not prolific, with dozens of long-running series, including the wild sci-fi creations The Incal and The Metabarons. “When I met him,” recalls Golubovich, “he had fifteen or twenty people working for him, producing dozens of comic books. His imagination never takes a break. He’s got a lot of energy.” In 2004, Jodorowsky told LA Weekly that he was working so hard “because I will die very soon. I am old. I have so many things to do, so every day I get quicker in order to do them!” Six years later, the legendary filmmaker may finally make his much-anticipated cinematic return. According to Golubovich, he’s making Abel Cain with total creative control and working only with the best, including storyboard artist Sylvain Despretz and reaching out to actors such as Daniel Day-Lewis and Johnny Depp. And what if Abel Cain isn’t made, after all? (“I thought we had half the budget,” Golubovich admits, “but after I saw the storyboards, I realized it wasn’t exactly half.”). Perhaps it only makes sense: sometimes our messiahs never return.

Don Johnson, 1990

The Magic Garden of Stanley Sweetheart, 1970

Los Angeles, May 2010

With MiaMi Vice, he set netWork tV ablaze. noW actor Don Johnson is back in hollyWooD’s hot seat With tWo eye-opening neW roles

The 1970s for Don Johnson was an era of steady work in Hollywood, without the glamour. He spent it mainly playing the token heartthrob in films and television shows that didn’t quite make it. Remember Soggy Bottom, U.S.A.? Not likely. Of course, fame came with Miami Vice, in which he played the scruffy detective Sonny Crockett, decked in a pastel Versace suit paired with a T-shirt and slip-on loafers. The series was a global megahit, and Johnson became the poster boy not just for the show, but for the entire epoch. Chasing drug dealers in his Ferrari, he was the archetypal ’80s hero. Johnson’s life after Crockett ushered in a new era for the actor, and his post-Vice résumé reads like that of a man plotting a career on his own terms. “I didn’t want to get tagged as Sonny Crockett forever,” he says of his extensive work following the show. At 60, Johnson may have aged beyond 32

playing hunky eye candy and romantic leads, but he has done it gracefully, transitioning into a far richer and more fulfilling career as a character actor. Case in point: Johnson’s next major role is in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete, a film that seems to have presaged the new Arizona immigration law. It is the story of vigilantism versus the influx of Mexican immigrants, and the grind house–style violence and hot-button subject matter will surely generate a media uproar, and boost ticket sales. The film, which also stars Robert De Niro and Jessica Alba, has Johnson playing Von, a rogue with white muttonchop sideburns and a heart as dark as his wardrobe. “He wears these low-slung weapons and a black vest, black boots, black shirt, black jeans,” Johnson says. “He’s just a badass.” Johnson happened upon the role through a chance meeting with Rodriguez, whom he ran into at a hotel. The next day Rodriguez called and offered him the part, and when Johnson saw that most of his scenes were alongside De Niro, signing up was a no-brainer. For his next movie, Johnson will make an about-face, playing Miles Deep, a washed-up porn director, in the off-color comedy Born To Be a Star. Behind-the-scenes pornography narratives don’t readily bring to mind happy-go-lucky shagging. In films such as Boogie Nights, books like the brilliant oral history The Other Hollywood, and the work of recently deceased photographer Larry Sultan, the world of XXX is painted as one of desperation, drug addiction, and death. But Born To Be a Star takes on the lighter side of skin flicks, and that’s why Don Johnson likes it. “They made an exceedingly funny film out of a premise that could be considered bleak and off-limits,” says Johnson. “This film is a love story that just happens to have pornography as its

background. By the time you get to the end, you will go, Oh my God, what a sweet movie!” Born To Be a Star is a product of Happy Madison, Adam Sandler’s production company. Sandler co-wrote the script along with the film’s star, the British comedian Nick Swardson. “Swardson is a kid in Iowa,” says Johnson, “and his friend invites him over for a whack-off session. He goes to his house and they put on a stag film and, lo and behold, it’s his parents, who were porn stars in the ’70s, in the film. He takes it as his destiny to go to Hollywood and become a porn star himself.” This is the part where the protagonist with stars in his eyes, and a bulge in his trousers, runs into Johnson’s character. Johnson’s world overlapped with porn briefly in the free-for-all ’70s. “I ran into guys like John Holmes and Ron Jeremy at many Hollywood parties, but I never had Holmes’s home number, nor he mine,” Johnson recalls. “The ’70s were rip-roaring. It was a pretty open scene with sex, drugs, and rock and roll.” Certainly, Born To Be a Star, and especially Machete, have the potential to extend Johnson’s “rebirth” into a full-fledged Mickey Rourke–style comeback. “I’ve won the war of attrition!” Johnson says. “I’m still around and they can’t ignore me. Hopefully it speaks well of my talent.” William Van Meter Bottom left: Photography Kayt Jones Styling Rachel Wirkus Suit and shirt Giorgio Armani Watch Johnson’s own Machete is out in September 2010 from 20th Century Fox.

CRAZY BEAUTIFUL her Family is renowned For the Furry and Fabulous, but risinG jeweler delFina delettrez takes a more twisted approach to hiGh Glamour

Rome-based jewelry designer Delfina Delettrez was bred on high fashion. As a schoolgirl, she would complete her homework amid the model fittings and runway-show preparations at the workplace of her mother, Silvia Venturini Fendi, the accessories designer of the family’s fashion dynasty. “This was my favorite time. I could see all of the sittings and the models, the makeup, and the hair...and see Karl [Lagerfeld] drawing. In one minute he could draw an entire collection,” she recalls. Given her early exposure to the sartorial profession, it’s little surprise that Delettrez, now 22, has followed in her parents’ footsteps (her father, Bertrand Delettrez, is also a jeweler)—even if the journey hasn’t been linear. “Two years ago, I had a crisis,” Delettrez says. “I wanted to be an actress.” She entered theater school to pursue costume design, but found herself suddenly intoxicated by the prospect of a career as a thespian.

SOUNDS RIGHT From Frankie to roxy to Grace, a new book tracks 50 years oF the iconic sounds oF island records

In 1959, in the midst of a rock revolution, music man Chris Blackwell started a record label for Jamaican pop. Over the next five decades, however, Island Records became a home for not just the Rastafied sounds of the Caribbean but also such era-defining acts as Grace Jones, Marianne Faithfull, Nick Drake, Tricky, and U2. A new book follows the label’s evolution from homegrown independent to worldwide music phenomenon—and all the definitive tunes and luscious cover art that came with it. In the world of major record labels, Island, with its jawdropping roster, was always the cool cousin. Illustrated with rare artwork, exclusive portraits, and never-before-seen photographs from the Island archives, Keep on Running: The Story of Island Records serves as a photographic tour through the label’s five decades, along with first-person recollections by everyone from ZE Records’ Michael Zilkha to writer Paul Morley. How exactly did Lee “Scratch” Perry sway ’70s rock audiences in his favor? What did Blackwell do to transform Grace Jones from disco queen to androgynous sex kitten? And how did Marianne Faithfull overcome a crippling addiction to revive her stagnating career? (Hint: she decided to sing about it.) Keep on Running goes behind the music, and the results are just as raw as you’d expect.

In 1998, I came to Ibiza with my two daughters, a small duffel bag, and all the dreams of a young mother. I was looking for utopia, and I found it in the hills of Sant Joan. I had never been there before—neither as a raver nor on family holiday— but it immediately felt like a place I could spend much of my life, as well as an ideal location to raise my young family. I quickly realized Ibiza was going to be a huge inspiration to me as an artist, and over the years I have created many of my jewelr y collections and ar t pieces in my home studio surrounded by the island’s tranquil lushness.

noTes from The nighT: a life afTer dark By Taylor Plimpton (Broadway Books, July 2010) Much like the hapless adventures written by his father, the late Paris Review editor George Plimpton, Taylor Plimpton’s debut book is a charming tale of exploration—this time into the New York night. Bouncing from club to club until the sun comes up, Plimpton captures with wit and intelligence the orgiastic absurdity of the base-bumping after-hours scene. Karin Nelson

True prep: iT’s a Whole neW old World By Lisa Birnbach with Chip Kidd (Knopf, September 2010) Though much has changed in the thirty years since The Official Preppy Handbook was released, Muffy, for the most part, has stayed the same: she still sports L.L. Bean, and still uses “summer” as a verb. Written by Lisa Birnbach (who edited the original) with help from graphic designer Chip Kidd, True Prep is a follow-up of sorts—a guide for the old guard on modern technology, political correctness, and how to distinguish Casual Friday from, well, Saturday. Karin Nelson

The cross of redempTion: uncollecTed WriTings By James Baldwin (Pantheon Books, August 2010) In the ’50s, the prophetic writer helped us reconsider race, sex, and social identity. A new book gathers unpublished essays, articles, polemics, reviews, and interviews from the provocative literary figure on topics as wide and far-reaching as Russian literature, black nationalism, religious fundamentalism, the blues, boxing, and the possibility of an African-American president.

Queer: 25Th-anniversary ediTion By William S. Burroughs (Penguin, August 2010) A dark, unapologetic, perversely revolutionary tale of unrequited gay love, Queer may be Burroughs’s most overlooked work, but it is also his most emotionally resonant. Now, twenty-five years after it was posthumously published, comes an expanded edition with restored passages and explanatory notes. At a time when gay rights are at the forefront of politics and gay culture has become more like a mirror of straight culture, it seems remarkably prescient. T. Cole Rachel

kicking in By Richard Wirick (Soft Skull Press, out now) In Richard Wirick’s action-packed collection of stories, off-the-wall horrors are all in a day’s work. Take the lawyer whose client puts a customer in his car-painting kiln and turns it on until she cooks, or the American soldier in Somalia who steals a taste of morphine while a ticking missile is removed from his friend’s body. Thematically linked by narcotic escape, Wirick’s riveting tales question the social order while transforming the starkly real into something surreal. Traci Parks

The hilliker curse By James Ellroy (Knopf, September 2010) In recalling his life from age 10—specifically, the uncontrollable self-destruction and depression engendered by his mother’s still-unsolved 1958 murder—James Ellroy hopes to purge his soul with this second autobiography. In the process, he creates an intensely honest, deeply moving memoir of a son seeking forgiveness, colored by all the absorbing drama of the novels it helped to inspire. Martha Glass

super sad True love sTory By Gary Shteyngart (Random House, July 2010) In his latest work, Gary Shteyngart tackles the increasingly popular subject of humanity’s impending downfall. An irreparable economy, global-scale corporate takeovers, and pervasive multitasking technology are destroying both the world of the novel and its balding, middle-aged, lovesick schlub of a narrator. Super Sad, with its eerily unsettling prophecy, bears an obvious resemblance to Orwell’s 1984, but stands on its own as an intelligent, touching, and enormously funny original vision. Martha Glass

When it comes to sustainable style, Stefanel’s latest collection of jewelry is a big step in the right direction. “Made for Stefanel” is the product of a partnership with two seasoned jewelry makers: luxe line Erickson Beamon (which ha s also cre ated piec e s for the likes of Dior, Ungaro, and Givenchy) and fair trade accessories brand M ade (whose past collaborators include Nicole Farhi and Topshop). The result is a line of tribal-punk necklaces and bracelets that, miraculously, manage to reflect the singular design sensibilities of all three creative forces. Each piece in the collection comes to life in Made’s Nairobi factory, which employs impoverished local workers and transforms them into healthy, happy, and highly skilled artisans. Martha Glass

What started as a friends-and-family project in the back-space gallery of NYC dive bar Lit Lounge has now become the world’s largest contemporary drawing exhibition, to be showcased this summer at Mexico City’s Museo de la Ciudad.

The show emphasizes the importance of drawing as the foundation of our material world. From iconic buildings to fashion to complex machinery, it all begins with a simple sketch. Marcus Chang

It wasn’t long ago that China Chow, the part-time actress and daughter of restaurateur Michael Chow and the late fashion icon Tina Chow, would have balked at the notion of appearing on a reality TV show. So, in June, when Bravo started airing episodes of Work of Art: The Next Great Artist, a competitive program that Chow hosts and guest judges along with curator Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, art critic Jerry Saltz, and gallery owner Bill Powers, she was just as surprised to see herself on the small screen as were some of her friends. “It’s true that I was anxious at first, but when I saw the caliber of people participating, I realized I had to be a part of this,” she explains. Among the luminaries: auctioneer Simon de Pury, who assumes the role of mentor, and whom Chow calls “the smartest, chicest man I know;” and artists Will Cotton, Richard Phillips, and Andres Serrano, all of whom make cameos as guest judges. And unlike some reality shows with rather lackluster prizes, the winner will have an impressive solo exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. (It also should be noted that while Chow ventured into reality TV territory, her wardrobe didn’t: in the episodes she sports straight-off-the-runway looks from Jil Sander, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, and Balenciaga.) “One of our first reviews said that the show, ‘wouldn’t embarrass the art world,’” Chow says with a laugh. Since then, positive reviews for Chow’s turn as both a heartfelt and stern presence have continued. “I have really enjoyed watching the creative process of the artists on the show, and participating in something so personal,” she says. Though she adds that it was not easy to say goodbye to the guests, or to criticize their works. “These are real artists who take their works seriously. Critiquing something so personal wasn’t my favorite part of the show.” This was not the first time Chow has found herself immersed in the art world. Mr Chow, the family restaurant business, has famously been the eatery for the art elite. And as such, Chow, who was born in London and moved to New York when she was 5, grew up surrounded by the likes of Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Julian Schnabel, and Francesco Clemente. She can remember practicing how to draw elephants with Jean-Michel Basquiat. “My father has been an artist and a collector all his life,” she says. “Growing up, family bonding wasn’t riding bikes or having slumber parties, it was going to the Met.” Derek Blasberg Photography David Vasiljevic Styling Catherine Newell-Hanson Dress The Row Jewelry her own Work of Art: The Next Great Artist airs Wednesdays on Bravo through mid August 45

Sophia KoKoSalaKi never thought She’d have So much to Say about deSigner denim. her debut for dieSel blacK gold proveS that oppoSiteS not only attract, they maKe for good bed fellowS

Prior to taking the helm at Diesel Black Gold for Fall 2010, Sophia Kokosalaki created a capsule denim collection that more or less convinced founder and CEO Renzo Rosso she was the woman for the job. “He was very complimentary, which is huge considering his reputation as a ‘connoisseur of denim,’” the Greek-born Kokosalaki recalls, laughing. Best-known for her eponymous line of feminine, Hellenic-inspired dresses and artful draping, Kokosalaki has carved out an aesthetic seemingly at odds with Diesel’s sexy, rough-hewn, rock-and-roll vibe. Still, “both have to be well-designed,” she explains. “One is maybe more about hardware and treatment and washes. The other is about technique, 3-D shapes, fabric.” Judging by the hugely positive reception to her debut back in February, including a first-time order from Barneys, Kokosalaki has not only gotten Black Gold’s DNA, she’s elevated the brand to a level of sophistication heretofore unseen. Leather—skinny trousers, moto jackets, short dresses—was paired with faded denim or plaid, lending the collection a sleek polish without veering far from its roots. Coming from a Mediterranean country, Kokosalaki understands “what is sexy on a woman without ever being vulgar,” she explains. As far as the double life of an independent designer working within a global denim powerhouse, Kokosalaki considers it a privilege. “Being part of a big corporation while also doing something more exclusive, I think that’s a good position to be in. I’m not suffering!” Sarah Fones Photography Mark Pillai Styling Yuki James All clothing Diesel Black Gold All jewelry Cartier 46

dark crystal SWAROVSKI ADDS SOME FLASH TO THE cLASSIc LITTLE BLAcK DRESS

We’ve seen it short and we’ve seen it long; we’ve seen it worn with sleeves, strapless, under a coat, and with giant shoulders. Now, thanks to Swarovski Elements, the little black dress has a new lease on life. For its latest project, 22 Ways to Say Black, the Austrian company, which has been at the forefront of crystal design since 1895, encouraged twenty-two of fashion’s

heaviest hitters to use the LBD as a blank canvas to be slashed and bedazzled. The familiarity of the LBD gave Swarovski a chance to both challenge and entice its roster of designers, which includes Donna Karan, Alber Elbaz, Diane von Furstenberg, Riccardo Tisci, Giorgio Armani, and Valentino’s Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri. While the company’s intention was to pep up a perpetual classic, the economy had a factor in its decision as well. In the past, the brand has looked to designers to create other pieces of a woman’s wardrobe; last year, it commissioned couture wedding dresses. But, as Swarovski’s Markus Lampe puts it: “You only wear a wedding dress once, and one of the important things to remember in fashion now— and something that has always been important to us—is being classic.” Luckily, the resulting garments run the gamut, from soigné shifts to kicky cocktail dresses to smart separates to full-on gowns. The collaborations debuted during the Paris couture shows

before traveling to Beijing, where they will be on display until they are shipped to New York to be auctioned off at Phillips de Pury this September. One hundred percent of sales of the dresses and the accompanying book will go to the American Cancer Society. Style with a conscience is something we can always get behind. Derek Blasberg

Kim Gordon is a neo-Renaissance woman. The punk priestess and bassist of Sonic Youth has dabbled in acting and directing, been a force of fashion (designing the clothing lines X-Girl and Mirror/Dash), and showcased her text-based art in galleries around the world. Now Gordon is channeling her talents into a collaboration with NYC boutique No. 6. Having teamed up with the likes of Devendra Banhart and Jim Drain in the past, No. 6 enlisted Gordon to create a portfolio of prints. Each features a single word of the Fleetwood Mac song “Rhiannon,” creating an abstraction of both the language and its meaning. Packaged as a set in a black portfolio, the prints will be available this summer. Alisa Gould-Simon

Pre-fall accessories take a walk on the wild side

Photography Anthony Cotsifas Fashion editor Catherine Newell-Hanson Set design Michael Reynolds


1950s: sophia loren The Italian screen siren has fifty international film awards to her credit, but it’s her remarkable curves that have made her a global icon for the past five decades.

1486: venus de milo Venus was the mythological symbol of beauty in ancient Rome; The Birth of Venus—Sandro Botticelli’s large-scale depiction of the goddess on the half shell—is the perfect example of why.

1905: mata hari The Dutch-born mail-order bride turned high society courtesan adopted the name Mata Hari while working as an exotic dancer in Paris. But intrigue was also her downfall: intimately involved with several high-ranking military officials, she was arrested and subsequently executed for espionage during World War I.

2008: gisele bÜndchen

2010: crystal renn In the plus-size model movement, Crystal Renn is the Oliver Cromwell, the Thomas Jefferson, and, okay, maybe the Malcolm X too. Renn literally wrote the book on embracing curves and natural beauty. Now the fashion world is totally spellbound because—as evidenced by this Terry Richardson photo—she looks damn hot no matter what she wears or does.

52

2007: lara stone Known for inexplicably shedding her clothes on the set of every shoot, the little Dutch girl with the 32F bustline ushered in a new feminine ideal at the end of the last decade. Today, Lara Stone is going for the gold, cementing her legacy as “the body” of the 21st century.

What more can you say about the great Gisele? A decade ago she debunked the ’90s waif with her tanned-and-toned brand of beauty. Yet she remained infamously tight-cupped about her prodigious bosom, prompting a long-standing petition to “Free the Gisele Two.” This 2008 Mario Testino V cover is arguably her most titillating shoot to date, and the nation of Brazil still hasn’t fully recovered.


1979: bo derek Her role as the sun-kissed beach babe with a head full of cornrows in Blake Edwards’s film 10 earned the California blonde not only a Golden Globe nomination but also a prime location on every teenage boy’s bedroom wall.

1960s: brigitte bardot Brigitte Bardot had already caught the eye of her native France when a controversial role in the 1956 film And God Created Woman turned the then 22-year-old into an eternal international sex symbol.

1981: grace jones

From Greek Goddesses to Brazilian BomBshells, a look Back at the most awe-inspirinG physiques oF all time

Imposingly tall and muscular with a feral presence, the queen of disco, as she was called in the late ’70s, was the walking, stalking, growling embodiment of sex and danger. Even today, at the age of 62, she remains an unapologetic man-eater.

2006: daria werbowy Fashion’s athletic golden girl has an attitude, confidence, and fearlessness that ignites her work, from the pages of Vogue to the covers of V. The feline beauty emerged in 2003 as the first great supermodel of the ’00s. In 2006, she posed for Mario Testino looking like the hottest motorcycle mama in the whole gang.

1988: jessica rabbit Based on Rita Hayworth in Gilda with a bit of Veronica Lake thrown in, the sultry, singing star of the animated film Who Framed Roger Rabbit blew Betty Boop out of the water with her abundant curves and slit-up-to-there red dress.

1993: anna nicole smith Suggesting a blow-up version of Marilyn Monroe, the Playboy model from Mexia, Texas, brought a kinky glamour back to fashion when she appeared in a series of Guess jeans ads in 1993. Throughout her life she continued to captivate the masses with her over-the-top figure and larger-than-life personality.

DEREK BLASBERG What’s the first thing you think of when I say the word sexy? ADRIANA LIMA My husband! DB Who do you think is the sexiest woman? AL Marilyn Monroe was the sexiest. She was very feminine and confident with a touch of innocence. DB Who is the sexiest man? AL Of course my husband! Because he is very smart, he makes me laugh, and I love how athletic and energized he is all the time. DB In your life, when have you felt the sexiest?

AL Right after I had my beautiful daughter, Valentina. DB What is your definition of sexy? Is it only physical? AL To me, it is all about confidence in yourself both physically and mentally. But you also have to have a slightly playful attitude about everything. DB Some people say showing skin is sexy, others say leaving something to the imagination is sexier. What do you think? AL Both can be sexy, but I still think sexy is really not about what you expose. It’s about how you say and do things and the attitude!

DB What’s the sexiest thing in your closet? And when do you wear it? AL Lingerie...morning, afternoon, and night. DB Who is the sexiest designer? AL Riccardo Tisci, definitely. DB Can anyone be sexy? AL I think it’s like charisma—in many cases you have to be born with it. DB What tips would you give someone on being sexy? AL Have confidence, attitude, but mostly be yourself. Be unique! 55

DEREK BLASBERG What’s the first thing you think of when I say the word sexy? ISABELI FONTANA Sexy to me means how you act and the way you present yourself to the world. Sexy means being in love! DB Who is the sexiest woman you know? IF Angelina Jolie. Her personality, strength, and the way she conducts herself is really sexy. DB Who is the sexiest man? IF Marcelo Falcão, my boyfriend. He is so confident and he has such a unique way of carrying himself.

DB In your life, when have you felt the sexiest? IF I actually feel the sexiest right now. I am so in love, and the feeling of being loved increases how sexy I feel. DB What is your definition of sexy? Is it only physical? IF Sexy can be defined in many ways. You have to be confident in your physical character and your personality. DB Some people say showing skin is sexy, others say leaving something to the imagination is sexier. What do you think? IF I definitely think it’s sexier to let the imagination run wild. DB What’s the sexiest thing in your closet?

IF I have an amazing corset that I wear with Kiki de Montparnasse panties and a pair of custom-made black leather lattice cutout gloves for a very special night with my boyfriend. DB Who is the sexiest designer? IF Balmain and Versace. DB Can anyone be sexy? IF Anyone who loves life and has an appreciation for it is sexy! DB What tips would you give someone on being sexy? IF I would say it is all about how you compose yourself. Confidence plays a key role when you want to feel sexy.

DEREK BLASBERG What’s the first thing you think of when I say the word sexy? NATASHA POLY Attraction, mystery, passion, and confidence. DB Who is the sexiest woman you know? NP Penélope Cruz—she is everything I described as sexy. DB Who is the sexiest man? NP Hands down, Johnny Depp. He is timeless. DB In your life, when have you felt the sexiest? NP If there is anything modeling has taught me, it’s to be comfortable in my own skin. Therefore I feel sexiest right now.

DB What is your definition of sexy? Is it only physical? NP Sexy is not only physical, it is mental as well. Your inner confidence heightens your physical attraction. DB Some people say showing skin is sexy, others say leaving something to the imagination is sexier. What do you think? NP It’s much sexier to leave something to the imagination. DB What’s the sexiest thing in your closet and when do you wear it? NP High heels and red lipstick, usually for an amazing hot night

with my boyfriend. DB If you had to say one designer was the sexiest, who would it be? NP Azzedine Alaïa. He truly understands a woman’s body. I always feel my sexiest in something Alaïa. DB Can anyone be sexy? NP Yes, of course, anyone can be sexy. It’s a natural feeling in every human being. DB What tips would you give someone on being sexy? NP Be yourself, be confident in your body, and have fun with it!

LILY DONALDSON So many things—nudity, red wine, the sea, trees, music, hair, rain, sweat, musk, heels, stubble, grass, skin, dancing, whiskey... DB Who are the sexiest women you know? LD Jane Birkin and Charlotte Rampling DB Who are the sexiest men? LD Alain Delon and Bob Marley DB In your life, when have you felt the sexiest? LD The older I get, the sexier I feel. I guess you start to feel more comfortable in your own skin. It’s exciting... DB What is your definition of sexy? Is it only physical?

LD It’s definitely about confidence, humor, and being yourself, and it’s not only physical...unless you’re a Chippendale! I always think of it as more of a mental connection. It’s something you can’t quite put your finger on, but you know it when you feel it. DB Some people say showing skin is sexy, others say leaving something to the imagination is sexier. What do you think? LD I honestly think it’s how you feel. Sometimes I feel sexiest when I’m just in my pajamas or overalls, and other times it’s fun to show my legs off and put on a pair of heels. I don’t think there should be any rules as long as you feel comfortable and, as a friend of mine says, fly your freak flag! DB What’s the sexiest thing in your closet?

LD I have an amazing set of lingerie from Agent Provocateur, which is pretty sexy, but usually I feel most sexy in a big T-shirt, knickers, and socks. DB If you had to say one designer was the sexiest, who would it be? LD Donatella is probably the queen of sex. Her clothes are always made with a strong, powerful, sexy woman in mind. DB Can anyone be sexy? LD Most definitely. Sexy is a state of mind. DB What tips would you give someone on being sexy? LD Be who you are, unashamed and confident. When you’re with someone who wants you to be yourself and you want them to be themselves, I think that’s sexy. Any tips for me?

DEREK BLASBERG What’s the first thing you think of when I say the word sexy? ENIKO MIHALIK A beautiful naked woman’s body. DB Who is the sexiest woman you know? EM Crystal Renn. I think she has an amazing body, and she knows how to work it in front of the camera. DB Who is the sexiest man? EM My grandfather was a very handsome man in his time. He must have been the sexiest one as well if he was lucky enough to have my grandmother for the rest of his life. The reason is simple. He was a gentleman. DB When have you felt the sexiest? EM When I wake up in the morning in a good mood I always feel

sexier than other days. I put on a tiny silk dress, leave my hair natural, walk the streets, and even if it’s just in my head, I feel like people are staring at me like, Wow! It makes me feel like I’m glowing and I am the sexiest girl in town. DB What is your definition of sexy? EM Of course you can look sexy when you are naked, but I think it is not all about someone’s physical look. I define sexy as mysterious. I always say, “There is something about him.” For me it’s that look in the eye that I cannot describe. It drives me crazy. DB Some people say showing skin is sexy; others say leaving something to the imagination is sexier. What do you think? EM There’s no accounting for taste. Sexy for us in fashion might not be the same as sexy for someone who works at a bank. I go

both ways. A naked body can be beautiful, but a tailored suit or a fireman’s uniform can make the mind run wild as well. DB What’s the sexiest thing in your closet? EM My Yves Saint Laurent leather bodysuit. It has a zipper in the middle that goes from the top all the way to the bottom. I have never actually worn it outside, but I love to reassure myself that I look good by taking it out and playing dress up. No pictures please! DB Can anyone be sexy? EM Everyone has something sexy in their personalities, with their bodies. You just have to find the right way to use it. Want to see more?

roMulo araNtES NEto: thE boy FroM brazIl Actor Romulo Arantes Neto is one for auspicious starts. Five years ago, the handsome Brazilian was spotted in a nightclub by model agent Sérgio Mattos, and within a year, found his face plastered around the globe in campaigns for Louis Vuitton and Roberto Cavalli. Upon returning home, Neto was cast in the steamy teen soap Malhação. Brazilian girlhood has never been the same. Now, as one of the hottest actors in South America, he spends his days surfing, working out, making love, and more or less living the good life. Boa vida, indeed. Sergio Amaral

SERGIO AMARAL How did you fall into acting? ROMULO ARANTES NETO I have always been fascinated 60

by television. When the opportunity for an audition emerged, I grabbed it. Soap opera auditions are completely crazy, just people exchanging a lot of intense looks. Then three weeks later I was already recording. Now I’m doing a special part in Bela, a Fea [a Brazilian telenovela modeled on Ugly Betty]. SA So many women must hit on you. RAN The younger girls go into attack mode when they see me. They pull my hair, they try to pull down my pants! I have to walk with bodyguards. SA Do you consider yourself a romantic guy? RAN I can be very romantic, but I don’t fall in love easily. SA What kind of women do you like?

RAN She has to be smart with a good sense of humor. SA Is there a part of the female body you like in particular? RAN You always want to kiss a woman with a beautiful mouth. SA What is your daily routine? RAN I love to sleep. I don’t work in the mornings—work is always after noon—so I wake up around eleven a.m. I just bought an amazing bed, and I am very good in bed. Lately I’m into kitesurfing. I’ve been surfing since I was 9. I’m addicted to water. SA Do you work out or take care of your body in any way? RAN I take vitamins and collagen, which is good for the skin. SA And your six-pack? RAN I have to thank my genes. I swear I do nothing for it!

If you’re in the market for some summer lovin’ you could be in luck! The folks at the Armani Exchange store in Los Angeles snapped these sexy summertime singles and sent them to us so you could take your pick. While there are more than a few shadylooking characters in the bunch, don’t let the dark glasses fool you: any of these California dreamboats would make a great accessory for the season.
