guest editor’s letter

I AM LIVING THE DREAM. The LA dream. That is what I say to myself every day. Can there really be this perfect alchemy in one place? From the towering palm trees, azure sky, mountain hiking and stretches of surf and sand to on-fire culture, world-class museums, innovative artists, food wellness and total decadence, this city is so unique and inspiring. It’s a city of passion and exploration. A perfect coming together of history and modernity. An ever-evolving infusion of spirit and place.

ANSON SMARTFor this Sydney-based photographer, a regular contributor to Vogue Living, shooting our special Los Angeles issue guest-edited by American designer Kelly Wearstler was “a dream come true”. The enormous undertaking required Smart to stick to his tried-and-trusted process of being ultra-prepared for every shoot “so on the day I can relax, enjoy and respond to what happens in front of me”. A bonus was photographing the home of interior designer Brigette Romanek (page 110). “Everyone from The Rolling Stones to the Red Hot Chili Peppers recorded some of my favourite albums there.”TIFFANY BAKKERNew York-based Australian writer Bakker had the time of her life this issue, writing all seven of our Los Angeles home stories (starting on page 70) and reporting on San Francisco’s Proper Hotel (page 160). “I loved…
