Mert Alas and Mar­cus Pig­gott

Among the lead­ing fash­ion pho­tog­ra­phers of the past

two decades, Alas and Pig­gott have made iconic im­ages of many of the world’s most cel­e­brated women. In their first Esquire

as­sign­ment, they shot Pené­lope Cruz in a Dal­ston town­house. Turk­ish and Welsh re­spec­tively, they have worked for Vogue,

W Mag­a­zine, Gucci, Dior, Louis Vuit­ton and many more, and will cel­e­brate 20 years of part­ner­ship with a Taschen ret­ro­spec­tive pub­lished in Jan­uary 2018.

“I grew up watch­ing Red­ford’s films,” says US

Esquire’s ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of ed­i­to­rial. “My mother loved them, so she took me with her. I told Red­ford I saw all his Sev­en­ties clas­sics in

the theatre (in­clud­ing, strangely for an eight-yearold boy, The Way We Were).

He in­sisted on a photo of

him­self with me and send­ing it to my mother. He’s a kind, thought­ful man. (And, of course, she was thrilled to tears.)” Hainey’s

Af­ter Vis­it­ing Friends

(Scrib­ner) is out now.

“Writ­ing about be­ing dis­in­vited from giv­ing

a TED talk opened a pain­ful emo­tional wound for me,” says Brad­shaw,

who ap­praises the fash­ion­able lec­tures from their best to their woe­fully em­bar­rass­ing worst on page 156. “If they ever change their minds, I will in­sist on only giv­ing my talk on the great Teds from his­tory: Hughes, Kennedy, Nugent, Bundy.” Brad­shaw is a broad­caster, nov­el­ist and film critic for

The Guardian.
