Four Stylists, Four Covers
Booking shoots is never easy, but when it came to photographing stylists and their star clients, actresses couldn't stop saying yes.
Editors here had an embarrassment of potential covers -- we couldn't pick just one, so we went with the four you see above. How to explain the celebrity loyalty? For an actress, a stylist sees her at her most vulnerable: undressed and stressed about the red carpet. Then again, best supporting actress nominee Jessica Chastain, whom photographer Mary Rozzi had 15 minutes to shoot in her Roosevelt Hotel room before she stepped onto the Oscar red carpet, was "calm and mellow," says Rozzi. "She said it was the best outfit, hair and makeup that she had ever had." Rozzi, who has shot for Vanity Fair and La Perla ads, also photographed Charlize Theron, a red-carpet icon, with stylist Leslie Fremar. "By Charlize's body language, she's very confident," recalls Rozzi. Yet the best photos ended up being of two friends, not glamazons: "Leslie was nervous and Charlize was saying, 'It's going to be fine, you're great, you're gorgeous.' " Photographer Joe Pugliese, who has shot numerous THR covers, captured the collaborative vibe between Katie Holmes and her stylist, Jeanne Yang. Says Pugliese, "They were definitely having a good time and comfortable sharing space." The space in question was their Holmes & Yang collection design studio: "a rooftop penthouse, like a New York fashion atelier." Pugliese's favorite part of the shoot occurred before he took a picture: "The first person I met was Suri, Katie's daughter, running out of the elevator with a stuffed animal bigger than her. That was definitely a nice moment."
