Gwen and hairstylist/good friend Danilo are both on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter! They appear together on one of the multiple digital Beauty Issue covers for November.
In the behind-the-scenes video interview, the inseparable duo discuss on how they first met during New York Fashion Week years ago at a Vivienne Westwood presentation, evolving her look and working on The Voice together.
She also shared that he was behind one of Gwen’s iconic looks from the “Simple Kind of Life” music video.
“Danilo was doing the hair and that’s when I met him, and he was already a rock star. At that time, it was a big deal to spend money on a rock-star dresser. We flew him in from New York and we did the ‘Simple Kind of Life’ video and he did this really big pink afro. I was addicted to him ever since.”
For the photo shoot (which has Gwen dressed in the same rocking ensemble she wore during the We Can Survive benefit show in Los Angeles back on Oct. 24), Gwen and Danilo appeared together in unintentional matching black and white outfits. Gwen is wearing a gorgeous Alexandre Vautheir polka dot gown with Christian Louboutin heels.
Danilo says that the they are always in sync with each other saying they “feel each other.” Gwen joked around saying that when she’s reincarnated, she will come back as Danilo. “He’s so in my life. I would have never dreamed of knowing someone like Danilo.” Danilo jokes back saying he would come back as her, too.
Gwen and Danilo are absolutely charming together and it’s great to see the duo behind so many inspiring looks on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter. We’ll try getting our hands on the digital issue to share more from the article.
Also, Gwen comes in at #3 on their list of Hollywood’s Top 25 Beauty Moments of 2014 for her Virtuosic Style Range and trendsetting looks.
