Rodeo Drive and The Red Carpet: The Show Must Go On

Hollywood and fashion are joined at the hip. But what happens when a pandemic puts a hold on red carpet ceremonies? 

Enter the VIP world of Rodeo Drive, with secret back entryways and private fitting rooms. Hear how stylists, brands and designers turn actors into fashion icons. 

Stylists Alexandra Mandelkorn talks about working with Janelle Monáe to create the most sensational outfit at the 2020 Oscars, and Mary Fellowes explains how she made Olivia Colman the queen of the 2019 red carpet. 

Host Bronwyn Cosgrave asks what the red carpet will look like in the time of COVID-19 and heightened awareness around race. Prestigious film festivals including the Venice International Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), Sundance Film Festival as well as the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards are taking place, but in a socially-distanced way. The 93rd Academy Awards has been postponed until April 2021.

“I can't wait to see the first actress that pulls off a mask that matches her dress or intentionally doesn't match it,” says Chris Gardner, columnist at The Hollywood Reporter. He adds, “some of those masks won't just be color coordinated. They'll be political statements. So it could be really exciting.”

Hear also from Paola Jacobbi at Vanity Fair Italia; British milliner Stephen Jones OBE; Robert Hayman, entrepreneur, son of Fred Hayman and member of the Rodeo Drive Committee; and author and design curator Rose Apodaca as they reflect on Rodeo Drive’s historic role in powering the red carpet, Hollywood’s all-important fashion runway.
