Carolina A. Herrera
Carolina A. Herrera’s fascination with youth culture and timeless glamor led her to develop more youthful lines of Herrera fragrances. It also leads her to enjoy classic horror and sci-fi films, like some of her favorites here:
– Volver (Pedro Almódovar, 2006) “A beautiful story about time, family ties and ghosts with Penelope Cruz at her best.”
– The Godfather, (Francis Ford Coppola, 1972) “A masterpiece that shed new light on mafia culture in America.”
– T. the Extra-Terrestrial (Steven Spielberg, 1982) “It’s always a perfect time to revisit this story of friendship and otherness that goes beyond science-fiction.”
– Bonnie and Clyde (Arthur Penn, 1967) “A biopic of the legendary American criminal couple starring the equally legendary Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway exploring love, violence and counterculture.”
– The Shining (Stanley Kubrick, 1980) “Much more than an adaptation of a Stephen King novel, it goes beyond the limits of terror movies.”
– Brothers & Sisters (Jon Robin Baitz, 2006-2011) “One of my favorite TV series, where family issues are intertwined with politics and even sociology.
– Chef’s Table (David Gelb, 2015). A documentary series that goes deep into the fascinating world of food.”
A belief that the world needs more beauty inspires Wes Gordon to design with bold strokes of color to wear on even the greyest of days. His favorite films reflect this sentiment – entrancing worlds of their own.
– Being There (Hal Ashby, 1970) The last movie that Peter Sellers starred in is a comedy-drama with a wonderful script and a sophisticated sense of humor set in Washington DC’s upper class.
