(Photographs Rex; Andrew Urwin) Greg WILLIAMSGreg Williams photographed four of our Men Of The Year winners: John Boyega, Sir Michael Caine, Mark Ronson and Ricky Gervais. Williams’ concept for the shoots was old-school cool. “Just like in the Sixties, without over-lighting or retouching,” says Williams. His best moment? “When Michael Caine arrived at my studio carrying his own tuxedo, without publicists or assistants.” Simon USBORNESotheby’s stakeholder Daniel Loeb recently described the auction house as “an old master painting in desperate need of restoration”. But, as Simon Usborne argues in this month’s feature on the auction house’s recent problems, Loeb’s influence may not be restorative. “Aggressive investors such as Loeb are motivated by short-term gains,” he says, “rather than the heritage of this 270-year-old company.” Michael McINTYREThis month, Michael McIntyre makes…

the legacy of hope

Big blue: Barack Obama accepts the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in Denver, Colorado, 28 August 2008 (Photograph Getty Images) In May, Shepard Fairey, the artist who created Barack Obama’s much-pastiched “Hope” poster, gave his verdict on the president. “I worked really hard for [Obama] so I had high hopes,” he said. “But there were about six years where I think he could have done more.” Fairey is not the first former supporter to feel disappointed. From Matt Damon (“I no longer hope for audacity”) to Michael Moore (“He was the first black president... OK, not a bad accomplishment, but that’s it”), many have perceived a disparity between the promise of Obama and what he has actually delivered. It has become a trope of his presidency, and perhaps that was inevitable:…

the rising star

IN her early teens, Dua Lipa had a setback: she was snubbed by the school choir. “My teacher said I couldn’t sing. I was heartbroken,” says the 21-year-old. Shows what they knew. Today, the British model-turned-singer has a BBC Music Sound Of 2016 nomination to her name, a belter in the charts (“Hotter Than Hell”) and racked up around 70 million YouTube views for her 2015 hit, “Be The One”Dark of looks, smoky of voice and fresh of sound (she gives old school hip hop and pop a tenebrous twist), it’s no wonder Lipa is grabbing attention. “I love the darkness rappers give, but I want there to be a pop chorus so people can dance,” she says. “Imagine J Cole crossed with Nelly Furtado.”Lipa’s debut album, out this autumn,…

a commune, but not as we know it

All together now: A new co-living tower is planned for Stratford, east LondonOld Oak in northwest London is the world’s largest such space Ever wanted to set up home in a members’ club? That’s the proposition behind the new trend for co-living spaces: high-end, fully serviced communes pitched at the digital generation. The idea is to accommodate groups of residents as if they were housemates, with private bedrooms but luxe shared amenities, such as dining spaces, roof terraces and spas. For millennials frustrated with landlords, long contracts and time-poor working weeks, this model is proving so popular (versions are opening up across the globe), that Soho House is considering entering the market.A key selling point is beautiful design. Old Oak (above, inset) is the world’s largest co-living space, and recently…
