Introducing “My Stuff”, a new feature that involves fashion insiders talking about some pretty essential stuff. Here we speak to Hanneli Mustaparta, the model turned stylist, turned photographer, who also happens to be a blogger with an international following.
The best way to start a day is with…
Tropical Green tea from Harney & Sons, and cuddles with my dog who gets so excited when I wake up she can’t stop wagging her tail.
New ideas come easily when I’m looking at…
Nothing. I’m at my most creative when I have nothing on my mind.
It’s Friday night in Paris and I’m wearing my…
Chanel – Eau De Toilette.
The memorabilia I’m most protective of is…
‘Return of The Cool’ by David Bailey and a thank you note from Anna Wintour.
Boredom doesn’t exist thanks to my…
Constant fascination with things.
I’m going on holiday and the first thing I pack is my…
Zimmerman bikini and all the books I don’t have time to read. I can’t wait to read Angelica Huston’s ‘A Story Lately Told’, ‘Brain On Fire’ by Susannah Cahalan and ‘The Secret History’ by Donna Tartt.
With Issue 7 only a few weeks away we couldn’t resist releasing a teaser of what’s to come.
In a new feature, Unsung Heroes, we move the spotlight away from the familiar faces of fashion, onto a group of people it’s likely you’ll know less about. But when it comes to the daily lives of our industry’s finest, these are the people worth knowing.
In the first of our series, Graydon Carter, editor of Vanity Fair, talks to us about his Unsung Hero, Sergei Boulii.
Editor, Vanity Fair
Unsung Hero: Sergei Boulii
The greatest perk that comes with being the editor of Vanity Fair is the use of a car and driver. It has made raising five kids in New York a possibility, in terms of getting them off to school when they’re young, making it to school functions, hauling them to hockey and ballet practice, and getting me home in an expedited manner to see them when the whistle goes off at work. For the past 17 years, I’ve been tethered to Sergei Boulii, my driver. He has seen my kids grow up, and my hair go from brown to gray. He gets me everywhere on time, and without hassle. And he keeps me abreast of events in Russia.
