Kevyn Aucoin: Beauty & the Beast in Me

Kevyn Aucoin: Beauty & the Beast in Me

Cindy Crawford at the very start of her career. A giggling young Naomi Campbell doing the hula. Whitney Houston playfully goofs around during a music video shoot. Intense glamour goddess Grace Jones mugs for the camera. On set Jennifer Lopez, Tina Turner and Janet Jackson let their hair down. Linda Evangelista eating a bagel while regaling the makeup room with the furor over her famous quote, “I don’t get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day”. Nothing was off limits. Kevyn also turned the camera on himself. Why did he videotape his life? Perhaps he merely wanted to document his work? He was in awe of his own climb and sought to prove it was real.
