NEW YORK — Instead of looking forward to retirement as most executives would after decades of work in a family business, Anne Cole hopes to steal a few secrets from her storied past.
Over the years, Cole of California, the firm her father founded in 1925, suited up starlets like Esther Williams and Marilyn Monroe. Anne Cole knew Christian Dior as a Parisian hired to design a swimwear line for the company and Ronald Reagan as a judge in one of the company’s swimsuit contests. She knew Sharon Stone and Rene Russo as Cole of California models before they were Hollywood actresses.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
