Brian Grazer: Curiosity as a Way of Life

Manuela

Our New DTLA Obsession...But Don't Tell Nobody If you are in Los Angeles, go to Manuela, it’s our new favorite spot. The room is perfection: the colors of the tiles, the artwork, the brass coordinates; we appreciate that someone put a lot of consideration into this place. Then there is...

The Ritz Cruise Ship

The Anti-Cruise Ship We knew that someone was going to reinvent the tired cruise line model, but who would have guessed it would be The Ritz?  We rather love the design of this yacht, sleek and sexy; for style it gets an A+. It’s a manageable size, like a pleasantly-sized...

Sam Taylor-Johnson, 50

The iconic artist, originator of the Crying Men series, and reluctant director of Fifty Shades of Grey, is married to a man 23 years her junior. And from what we read here, it's going quite nicely.
