style casting

Our Spring fashion issue was cast like an epic Hollywood movie—starring the most exciting talent on the planet today. There’s cover beauty Lili Reinhart from the hit show Riverdale and the strippers-who-steal saga Hustlers. We shot Lili in LA where she opened up to writer Mark Jacobs about her battle with anxiety and depression and why she just published Swimming Lessons: Poems, her first book of poetry. Another exciting talent, Angus Cloud, was plucked off a New York street to star as Fezco, the loveable drug dealer in HBO’s Euphoria. Of course no film is complete without a major leading man. We went behind the scenes with the dapper Daniel Craig who returns as James Bond 007 in No Time to Die. The L’Officiel credits don’t stop there. Photographer John…

the secrets of a princess

There is no question that Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece—the ultra-social, well-coiffed uptown doyenne and wife of Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece—is an arbiter of good taste, especially when it comes to raising kids. As a mother of five, she’s had practice, and her eponymous collection of luxury children’s clothing strikes a balance of style and practicality that’s not found at your local Baby Gap. Now, with the help of renowned pediatrician Dr. Perri Klass, illustrator Lydia Starkey and fellow supermom Tory Burch, Marie-Chantal has penned Manners Begin at Breakfast, a modern guide for parents to pass along the oft-overlooked art of etiquette. “Our kids eventually become us, and they pick up everything, for better or for worse,” Marie-Chantal, wearing a cozy sweater and a long pleated skirt, explains as we sit…

simon says

With a vase of white peonies here and a sleek brass dining table there, Simon Huck’s tastefully restrained West Village apartment is hardly an environment where one might expect to find a fluorescent, safety orange–colored plastic box. That? That’s JUDY, the ready-kit for natural disasters and home emergencies. And with a stamp of approval from celebrity pals like Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, emergency preparedness has never looked so cool. Huck’s Rolodex runs deep with famous supporters, Jenners and Kardashians among them. After first cutting his teeth as a publicist with Lizzie Grubman, he struck out on his own to become the principal owner of Command Entertainment Group where the likes of Katie Holmes, Carmelo and La La Anthony and Chrissy Teigen frequented his airspace. Today they—along with many, many more—remain close…

please don’t eat the paintings

In her perplexing, attention-grabbing and often gluttonous paintings, American artist Gina Beavers (b. 1978 Athens, Greece) transforms images from social media into works that break away from the surface. Beavers achieves this dimensionality by using foam and acrylic paint that are thickly layered upon each other, producing a three-dimensional work. Following her museum exhibition The Life I Deserve at Moma PS1, Beavers will present her debut solo show, World War Me, at Marianne Boesky Gallery from April 30–June 13. The artist’s subjects have primarily revolved around Instagram, memes, stock images, makeup tutorials and food porn. This series differs from her previous paintings in that she is creating her own reference images. Previously, Beavers appropriated images from the internet that spoke to her in some way autobiographically. In this series, she…

la vie de vito

In St. Moritz, the luxury alpine resort town in Switzerland’s Engadin Valley, it’s normally the snow that gets all the attention during the winter. But don’t be surprised this season if you hear a lot more people talking about clouds—or at least paintings of them, anyway. A never-before-seen exhibition of Francesco Clemente’s work is currently on display at the Vito Schnabel Gallery, with the sleek top floor containing six new oversize paintings of clouds and the old, cavernous ground floor, a relic from the 19th century, exhibiting a series of frescos Clemente created in Rome, a technique the artist has been investigating since the 1980s. Schnabel, a seasoned gallerist despite the fact that he’s only 33 (he started in the business at just 16, showing a group exhibition in his hometown…
