To quote gossip columnist Walter Winchell, “the greatest dramas in Hollywood are not filmed – they’re lived.” The goings on in the world of fashion are no less theatrical.
Movies and fashion have a lot in common. Both are high-stakes arenas where art and commerce collide in an explosion of creativity, virtuosity and indulgence. The pressure to come up with new ideas, new styles, new icons, is unrelenting. Glamorous and glittering on the outside, ruthless and predatory behind the scenes. In the words of the song, “It’s a jungle out there.”
Aenigma is a tribute to the stars and their svengalis – directors, cinematographers and talent spotters; couturiers, photographers and make-up artists. You’ll meet celebrities you know about but images and anecdotes you may not have come across before. You’ll make new discoveries too and catch more than the occasional glimpse of the sleazy individuals and dubious practices that lie just below the surface.
Aenigma is an evolving website, with more topics to be added over the coming months and years. So do bookmark this page, keep coming back and contact me with your thoughts, ideas and suggestions.
