simply the best

Before I started working at W, I always looked forward to its annual Best Performances portfolio, and wondered what it took to make it happen from beginning to end. I got the answer working on this issue, when Editor at Large Lynn Hirschberg called me screaming from the Cannes Film Festival to tell me about Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood. And so it all began. Best Performances (page 90) is now in its 10th year, and to be on Hirschberg’s list has become somewhat of an award in itself, as you can tell from our nine incredible covers. But Hirschberg always makes the point that it’s not just about featuring the most famous movie stars in the world—it’s literally about the year’s best performances across the spectrum,…

connecting the dots

1 The Salvatore Ferragamo Viva shoe, with its chicly distinctive bow, has been turning the heads of ladies who lunch since its debut, in 1979, when it was called the Vara. Recently updated by the creative director Paul Andrew, this new version retains the pump’s original sculptural silhouette but feels cool enough for a whole new generation of women whose lunches happen at their desks more often than not. 2 Perhaps because the brand’s founder, Salvatore Ferragamo, first made his name designing for Hollywood stars in the 1920s, the Viva reminds us of Andy Warhol’s fantasy footwear sketches, which depicted shoes inspired by famous figures from Old Hollywood and popular culture. Our favorite is Warhol’s 1956 ode to Christine Jorgensen, one of the first widely known individuals to have gender reassignment…

from los angeles to the world

It’s a measure of how prominent an art center Los Angeles has become that Serpentine Galleries, the popular contemporary art venue in London, recently appointed Bettina Korek to be its new chief executive. Korek is a native Angeleno and a pillar of the L.A. art scene who currently oversees Frieze Los Angeles, the city’s first major international art fair. But in March, after its second edition wraps, she will be decamping for a drizzlier climate—and one of the most powerful posts in the art world. “It’s the only opportunity for which I would have left L.A.,” she told me. Korek will not be selling her 1920s Spanish-style house in Los Feliz, however, which is where I met her on a disconcertingly hot winter morning. The first thing she wanted me to…
