The Ryan Gosling Issue —

Interview’s November issue gives pride of place to Ryan Gosling, the man whose appeal seems to lie partly in taking the road less travelled within the Hollywood system. Steve Carrell chats with Ryan about his new flavour of movie stardom. Mikael Jansson’s romantic urban blizzard shoot, styled by Karl Templer, only underscores the rebel romanticism that makes Mr Gosling a secret desire for women of all ages.

But the girl talk in this issue hardly comes second: rock goddess Patti Smith interviews Vanessa Paradis. The chanteuse, actress, recurrent face of Chanel and Mrs Johnny Depp chews the fat on the nature of a mutli-faceted career and still finding time to be a mother and keen gardener. If the woman who has it all should, theoretically, inspire rages of jealousy in other women, she once again oozes the charm that explains why more women see her as a role model than wanting to slap her because she’s French.

Being Interview, these are naturally only two of the satisfying items in the regular compendium of fashion, art, fame and unabashed hip put together by the tight team at Andy Warhol’s long-runner.

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.
