It's The Set, The Shoot, a series that takes a look at the fabulous interiors behind fashion editorials and campaigns!
The Set: Dawnridge, The Beverly Hills Home of Designer Tony Duquette
The over-the-top home of Tony Duquette, the late set and costume designer, first caught my eye in the September issue of Lonny Magazine. It's packed to the rafters with glamorous, flamboyant, and, at times, odd decorative touches.
Tony was a known collector of 'things' as well as for his maximalist style. "I have gone on accumulating enough beautiful things, ugly things, curious things – from deer’s antlers to Siamese figures of gilded wood – to fill boxes and boxes, baskets and baskets, houses and houses."
The Shoot: Lea Michele for Flare Magazine January 2013
Glee's Lea Michele sizzles in this cover story for Flare. The mag selected Dawnridge to match Lea's growing stardom, "…when it comes to multi-talented performers accustomed to OTT sets, there couldn’t be a more apt lurking spirit for our star: this generation’s non-conformist beauty with a big voice."
Many of Lea's shots were set in the garden room, with its mirrored ceiling, checkered floor, and leopard prints. Malachite is a prominent theme throughout appearing underfoot, draping the table, and even covering the walls.
