Fashion Fronts (pg. 32)
Transforming people into art is all in a day’s work for stylists Rachel Zoe and Jessica Paster and costume designer Arianne Phillips, so it’s appropriate that they get the same treatment in a new exhibition. With The Stylist Project, a show at Culver City’s Taylor De Cordoba gallery, Venice painter Kimberly Brooks renders 12 fashionistas in oil (that’s Zoe, above), with nods to John Singer Sargent, Henri Matisse, and David Hockney. Additional portraits of other chic personalities (Vogue’s Grace Coddington, Elle’s Joe Zee) will travel to New York. Feb 27 – Apr 3. Go to www.taylordecordoba.com.
