BEHIND THE SCENES WITH OUR JUNE COVER STARS, THE CAST OF BIG LITTLE LIES
It’s no easy feat to get the Monterey Five, aka the ladies of Big Little Lies, in the same locale. So it took two action-packed days, two venues, and a crew of over 50 people to keep the shoot, inspired by the visual allure of Valley of the Dolls, running on a tight schedule. Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley were the first to step in front of photographer Pamela Hanson’s lens, bringing their retro characters to life in a midcentury-modern Beverly Hills home. The following day, at an equally dreamy house in Pasadena, Nicole Kidman, Zoë Kravitz, and Reese Witherspoon took turns channeling 1960s glamour through a mix of soft pastels, bright prints, and classic pearls. Though the actresses enjoyed playing dress-up, we couldn’t help but turn our attention to their real-life, ultramodern wardrobes once we’d wrapped. Behold, the A-listers’ summer staples.
