Vogue Brings Fashion Fantasia to the West End

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | September 14, 2023

Damian and Alison walked the red carpet in style as they attended the star-studded Vogue World: London show at Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London on Thursday, September 14, 2023. The theme and dress code for the evening was Opening Night for the 1,500 guests. Damian performed on stage in a punchy tartan frock coat and worked the crowd playing a hammy theater usher as part of the original comedy sketch Safety Curtain alongside James McAvoy, James Corden, Sienna Miller and others. The evening concluded with a live performance by the fabulous and talented Annie Lennox singing ‘Sweet Dreams.’ View more photos from the event in our Gallery.

Vogue brought its very own fashion fantasia to the West End as audience members and streaming viewers watched the magazine dramatically bring to life the pages of Vogue. Masterminded by BAFTA- and Olivier-winning director Stephen Daldry, show director Emily Burns, and creative producer Fran Miller, alongside the Vogue team, the evening ran the gamut of the performing arts—opera and ballet and theater, oh my—with a galaxy of fashionable stars ranging from Kate Moss, Jared Leto, Brian Cox and Cindy Crawford to Sophie Okonedo, Ian McKellen, Linda Evangelista and Stormzy. Other guests included Baz Luhrmann, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie and Maisie Williams.

Damian Makes GQ’s Best Menswear Look This Week – Sept 4, 2018

How to Recreate Four of This Week’s Best Menswear Looks for Less

by Brad Nash | GQ Australia | September 4, 2018

As David Bowie sang,
“Fashion!
Turn to the left
Fashion!
Turn to the right”

Stock up on those loud shirts!

This weekend was one to behold in the world of menswear, with Hollywood’s leading men taking to the Venice Film Festival red carpet in red carpet looks that are entirely summer-ready.

Perfect for us, then.

But alas, we can’t all afford to swathe ourselves in the finest Gucci, nor are any of us good looking or famous enough to warrant Gucci wanting to drape us in clothes of our own accord.

Here’s how you can achieve some of this season’s iconic looks without breaking the bank, while adding a few wardrobe staples to your rotation in the process.

Seated alongside Anna Wintour as a guest of Roger Federer for the Swissman’s US open clash, Bobby Axelrod took things tropical with a bright printed shirt and stone chinos combo that’ll set you up just right going into spring.

On Monday night, the toast of Broadway traveled to Brooklyn for the American premiere of Duncan Macmillan’s People, Places & Things staged at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn, NY.

Following sold-out productions at London’s National Theatre and then on the West End, Denise Gough has reprised her Olivier Award–winning role as Emma alongside much of the original cast.

All were on hand at the elegant post-curtain dinner, hosted by Vogue’s Anna Wintour. There, underneath the theater-style lights in the auditorium, Damian Lewis warmed up the room with a little-known anecdote from when he first began dating now-wife Helen McCrory in 2005. At the time, McCrory was playing the part of Rosalind in the West End production of As You Like It. Lewis recounted a conversation he had with McCrory: “She said, ‘If there’s any justice in this world, the girl who is understudying me is going to be a fucking star,’” Lewis recalled. “‘She’s brilliant.’” As fate would have it, the understudy was Gough.

The Vogue editor-in-chief was among the high net worth guests who turned out to toast the Wall Street-themed drama’s Feb. 19 return on Showtime. Knicks coach Phil Jackson and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft also made the rounds at the screening and party, appropriately held at the venue across the street from Wall Street’s iconic charging bull sculpture.

Showtime CEO David Nevins gave a shout-out to co-creators and showrunners Brian Koppelman and David Levien for their deft touch in delivering the “Billions” mix of sudsy drama and heady commentary on the 1% and their discontents. The show’s already large ensemble cast — anchored by Lewis, Paul GiamattiMaggie Siff and Malin Akerman — has been enhanced this year with such notable additions as Eric BogosianChristopher DenhamJames Wolk and Asia Kate Dillon. It took Koppelman and Levien a few minutes to call out all of the actors assembled for the screening — and to give a little good-natured ribbing to Giamatti for missing the event.

Billions, the Showtime series about a billionaire hedge-funder and a hard-charging U.S. Attorney, held its second season premiere in a perfectly apt venue—the ornate Cipriani in the Financial District, opposite the famous bull statue.

At the splashy premiere, where guests supped on Billions-inspired elit Vodka cocktails, Damian Lewis (who was slightly late because he was stuck in traffic after an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers) joined Anna Wintour, Eric Bogosian, Carla Gugino, Robert Kraft, Danny Strong, Jerry O’Connell, Maggie Siff and Malin Akerman.

Malin Akerman admitted that getting to play a billionaire’s wife has one delicious perk.“It’s quite exciting to wear these beautiful clothes,” she explained. “I’m a shoe and purse person, so they come in with these beautiful shoes and bags and we get to borrow them, so I feel pretty fabulous.”

Akerman said her favorite item so far has been a pair of blue suede Balenciaga boots.And as for personal purchases, The Heartbreak Kid actress explained that since she became a mom four years ago to son Sebastian, she doesn’t splurge on pricey items like she used to.

“I did buy a pair of Yves Saint Laurent little boots with fringe because they’re switching designers and I just felt like I wanted to invest in something that I’ll wear a lot,” she confessed. “They’re very expensive and there was a bit of guilty feelings as a mom, but I thought, you know what? I work hard, so every now and then I can give myself something.”
