Unsung Heroes: Sergei Boulii by Graydon Carter

29/05/2014, Unsung Heroes

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.

Graydon Carter
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.

Fashion Quote of the Week

“Of course you need to fail, it’s unnatural not to. If you do everything right all the time then that perfection becomes boring. You could be the best designer in the world and produce amazing collections but people would get tired of it, even though it’s still amazing.”

Fashion Quote of the Week

21/05/2014, Fashion Quote

“The difference between us and other photographers is that the people in our pictures are human beings, and are in some way made into a heroic version of themselves. For us, the main thing is that the person in front of the lens feels unbelievable.”
