Detroit has taken another step in proving to the world it has come back. On June 19, Anna Wintour , the Artistic Director of Conde Naste publications and editor in chief of Vogue Magazine, came to our city to promote the opening of a new exhibit at The DIA; “Detroit-Bruce Weber“. The new exhibit features photos the legendary photographer has taken of “ordinary folk” in our great city. Weber first visited Detroit in 2006, when he photographed an expansive spread featuring Kate Moss for W magazine. He returned last year to capture images used for a Shinola ad campaign. Weber is best known for his work on Calvin Klein ads, and spreads for Abercrombie and Fitch, Vogue and Vanity Fair.
Antonino Salon and Spa owner, Anthony Marsalese was invited to visit Anna Wintour four times during her two day visit to style her signature hairstyle. The last minute invitation required some rescheduling, but every client on Anthony’s schedule encouraged him to take advantage of this “once in a lifetime opportunity”. So the big question everyone wanted to know…………”No, she is nothing like the character, Miranda Priestly, portrayed by Meryl Streep in the hit movie “The Devil Wears Prada“, says Anthony. Within the first five minutes of meeting her, she made both Anthony and Todd Scogg of Todd’s Room (who was invited to do her makeup), very comfortable “She was very pleasant, very appreciative and professional” remarked Anthony, adding “she is obviously an extremely busy women with tremendous responsibilities.
Be sure to visit the DIA before the exhibition closes on September 7, 2014 to see Weber’s wonderful tribute to Detroit.
