You may know David Wills from his previous bookAudrey: The 60s. A compilation of stunning, highly glossy photographs of Audrey Hepburn from the 1960s. The cover featured a hypnotic and very mod Audrey photographed by Douglas Kirkland for the film How to Steal a Million. Now, David Wills has published his second Audrey Hepburn book, Audrey: The 50s with beautifully rich photographs of Audrey from her movies throughout the 1950s. Think Roman Holiday, Funny Face, and Love in the Afternoon just to name a few. It combines famous movie stills of Audrey as well as unfamiliar, rarely seen promotional photographs of Audrey from her earlier films (as shown above). This book is like dessert: sumptuous, eye-catching, and truly satisfying. And just like dessert it’ll leave you wanting more!
He’s traveled the world for his work and pleasure — lived in far-flung filming locations and in L.A. for a time — but Eddie Redmayne is a London boy, through and through.
From his earliest days as a nattily uniformed Colet Court schoolboy to an award-winning, world famous actor ceremonially lighting up the iconic London Eye as patron of a favored charity, we look at Eddie Redmayne in the city he calls home.
1. Pupil at Colet Court (a boys-only school which he attended on a choral scholarship before moving on to Eton College in Windsor at the age of 13).
2. Photoset: Performing in Globe Theatre’s 400th anniversary production of Twelfth Night at Middle Temple Hall, his first big acting break, being interviewed at Globe for CBS Sunday Morning in 2016.
3-4-5-6. Photosets: Modeling at iconic London locations.
7. Photoset: Promotional photographs for stage production of Richard II, inside Westminster Abbey. He’s posing with a painting of the king.
8. Photoset: Showing his seasonal London street style out-and-about in favorite neighborhoods.
9. Photoset: In his own Bermondsey neighborhood, waiting on coffee, stopping by his favorite cafe and cleaner, attending a street festival.
10. Photoset: Street shots, courtship of then-girlfriend now-wife Hannah Bagshawe in Borough, fatherhood celebrated in a gleeful stroll with baby Iris Mary.
11. Photoset: At iconic London events — Ballet, Masterpiece London, Wimbledon, Royal Chelsea Flower Show.
12. Photoset: Riding the Tube. Eddie’s love for the London Underground is celebrated in the media as him being “normal,” “salt of the earth,” an “Everyman.” Says Eddie: “How else do you get around in London? I’ve always travelled on the Tube and I love the Tube.”
13. Photoset: Paparazzi frequently catch Eddie as he takes off or arrives home from his travels at Heathrow Airport. He was mobbed upon his arrival from Los Angeles after winning the Oscar in 2015 for The Theory of Everything, and the event was duly noted with a plaque honoring momentous events, installed for the airport’s 70th anniversary.
14. Receiving the Freedom of the City distinction, awarded to London’s most distinguished citizens (and which allows him to drive sheep and cattle across London Bridge once a year, should he choose to do so).
15. Lighting the London Eye blue and orange to mark Motor Neurone Disease Global Awareness Day. Eddie has been a patron of the organization since becoming acquainted with the disease and its sufferers — most notably, Stephen Hawking, whom he portrayed in The Theory of Everything.
Environmental lawyer Derek Hale is determined to stop the planned defacement of his beloved Beacon Hills Preserve by the mammoth Starr Development company. To do so, he makes a deal with the devil himself — Stiles Starr, the brash young scion of the Starr family and COO of Starr Development. Derek hates Stiles at first sight. Mieczysław Stilinski, on the other hand, is someone that Derek could grow to like…or even love.
“Stiles, I’ll clear up your confusion about the position. Derek here needs someone to live with him. He’s a difficult person to live with, so I won’t sugarcoat that. But his responsibilities at the company right now make it impossible for him to actually take care of himself and his home. That would be your job,” Laura explained.
Derek’s been letting his job dictate his life ever since he was promoted from freelance photographer to official travel photographer. In his five years of travel, he’s built relationships in countries all across the globe, yet he still returns home after each job as lonely as ever. When he decides to try out the pen pal site Laura recommends to him, he doesn’t know what to expect. Derek isn’t prepared for Stiles, a small town guy with big dreams of seeing the world. And he certainly isn’t prepared to fall in love with him. He has to remind himself that this is just a pen pal thing and not to get carried away. It’s not like Stiles could ever like him back.
Yes, Scott and Stiles sleep in the same bed. Stiles would rather cut off both of his hands than touch Scott sexually, but he’s no stranger to showing affection, and they cuddle on a pretty regular basis. Their relationship is, in Stiles’ eyes, normal and healthy and exactly what they both need. Then Scott meets Alison, and they fall in love over a fucking pen (which is sickly sweet but so Scott), and Stiles suddenly has a lot more time on his hands.
Cue pottery classes, stargazing, a new friendship, and a lot of (totally platonic) fantasizing.
Stiles is ready to get out of Beacon Hills and start his new life, free of the supernatural. A random discovery in an antique store in Denver proves you can never leave it all behind… and encourages him to find it again. What ensues is four and a half years of pining, self-discovery, personal growth, a whole hell of a lot of love, and a realization that nightmares can still become fairy tales (happily-ever-afters included).
Of all the scents Derek imagined being innately in tune with, applecinnamonoatmeal was not at the top of list. Not the kind that comes from instant packets of oatmeal with dehydrated bits of apple that only need a cup of milk and a minute and a half in the microwave to be ready. Not the floral infused candy apple scent of body mists or oatmeal soaps that Erica favors. The pure, unadulterated scent of fresh baked goods made with pureed apple, steel-cut oats, cinnamon, and just a pinch of allspice.
Stiles is the first and last person Derek has ever wanted to associate with that scent.
It all started with a strange scent in the grocery store, and now Derek can’t imagine his life without the hyperactive little shit that is Stiles Stilinski. He didn’t know why he always felt the need to be close to the boy but his mom’s knowing looks certainly weren’t helping.
