June/July Issue —

 Bombshells have appeared as putting together this issue and have been the most enjoyable part of the job. In an interview with actor Jeff Daniels, the Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, whose new series, The Newsroom, premieres on HBO in June, talks about writing what he calls “Skylab episodes” in television. Sorkin is describes a kind of faith that comes into play when creating things, and the roles that intuition and risk-taking play in that process. Our cover girls, Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart, who both star in the new film Snow White and the Huntsman, are certainly two women whose success is, in many ways, a reflection of their refusal to play it safe—as well as to their commitment to following their intuition, even if it runs against what everyone one is telling them to do. Patrick Demarchelier and Ludivine Poiblanc explore a softer side of femininity in their “Delicacy” fashion story, while Craig McDean and Karl Templer’s “Double Vision” men’s story takes a layered approach to dressing for fall. The issue also contains an exclusive excerpt from Cynthia Carr’s Fire in the Belly, the first major biography of the late artist and activist David Wojnarowicz, which provides a revealing look at the life of a man whose work continues to spark debate nearly two decades after his death.

Our Take —

Interview is in a category all of its own. Originating as Andy Warhol’s ultimate Pop Art gesture –the vehicle through which Andy might provide everyone with those legendary fifteen minutes of fame- Interview has managed to negotiate the tricky responsibility for any magazine originating as an art work. And it has largely prospered and triumphed in its salubrious history since its first appearance in 1969. Understandably tightly controlled by Warhol and his acolytes until nearly the end of the famed artist’s life, Interview has been kept on track by the same publishing house that acquired the title in 1987 shortly after Warhol’s death.

Living up to the singular spirit, flair and visual power of a magazine once produced by an artist famed for his stark, direct portraiture and his equally creative gang of collaborators can never be an easy task. Yet, somehow, even without Warhol, Interview has managed to encapsulate that very specific heady mix of celebrity, art, fashion, film and, needless to say, interviews. Interview continues to read like a who’s who of the hip and cool, a very particular publication built on the long experience of time spent at the coal face of chic.
