Today Violet Grey – a just-launched insider Hollywood digital publication – launched Ms. Blume’s new column, Moment in Time, which celebrates Hollywood’s most stylish historical moments as encapsulated in a single photographic image.
The inaugural subject: the great Anjelica Huston, muse and collaborator to some of the greatest auteurs of the modern film and fashion industries, from Halston to Wes Anderson to Richard Avedon.
Huston’s individualism, unconventional beauty, and intelligent glamour make her the perfect Moment in Time subject. While it was difficult to pick one picture among the countless glamorous images of Huston, Ms. Blume and the Violet Grey team loved this 1975 Oscars red carpet photograph of Huston with actor Jack Nicholson, her then-paramour.
In the interview, Huston tells Ms. Blume about that exceptional evening (from getting ready in a mere hour to the legendary Oscars after-parties at Swifty’s), falling in love with Jack Nicholson for the first time (while admitting that she’s still a little bit in love with him), and ponders what makes a woman truly glamorous.
Violet Grey is a new Hollywood-based editorial e-commerce site celebrating beauty at its most compelling.
