The opportunity to work with Valentina Zelyaeva, the renowned Ralph Lauren campaign model and muse to Mr. Lauren himself, on our BEST OF FALL cover shoot opened up a ferry-ride-long discussion on “Who’s your muse?” Should everyone have a muse – or – should this eccentricity be reserved only for successful designers, photographers, and musicians? We leave it up to you to contemplate the answer to this question as you peruse Estate of Mind (page 48), featuring Valentina Zelyaeva.
In this issue, Trillionaire talks with American couturier and visionary Ralph Rucci (page 70), who recently launched his first book, Autobiography of a Fashion Designer: Ralph Rucci. We share health and nutrition tips from our gorgeous cover model in Valentina’s Juice Bar (page 40). To view a clip of Valentina Zelyaeva preparing her recipes for fruit and raw vegetable juice drinks, visit www.trillionairemag.com for an exclusive video – then, juice away! If you’re the adventurous type, we suggest a luxurious safari vacation in the eastern African country of Tanzania in Under the Tanzanian Sky (page 92). You’ll find all this and much, much, more with features on rare colored diamonds, the revival of Moynat, beauty and fashion trends for men and women, interior design highlights, the world’s fastest supercar, yachting, and cultural highlights for the season.
After wrapping up this BEST OF FALL issue, we head back to New York City for another season of the Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week. At first we’ll work behind-the-scenes for one client. Later, we’ll take pleasure in viewing the Spring 2013 collections as spectators for Trillionaire Magazine so that we may bring you top trends and exclusive designer interviews.
We hope you enjoy our BEST OF FALL highlights and all the upcoming season has to offer. Your ideas, feedback, and suggestions are always welcome at FTrillionaire Magazine.
