Designing Hollywood 2007 Highlights
DESIGNING HOLLYWOOD 2007 took place on June 18th.
Honorees were make-up artist Toy Russell Van Lierop, costume designer Sharen Davis and hair stylist Michelle Johnson — all of whom have left their creative marks on recent popular and critically-acclaimed films and television series. Hits like Dreamgirls, The Nutty Professor and Sex and the City owe much of their distinctive looks to these talented women.
Toy Russell Van Lierop has a remarkable career spanning two decades. Her body of work includes more than 30 films, including The Nutty Professor, Empire Falls, Mr. & Mrs. Bridge, Lean on Me, Beverly Hills Cop 3, Boomerang and I Am Legend, as well as 100 Centre Street for television. She has worked with such talented directors as James Ivory, Sidney Lumet, Wes Craven, Betty Thomas, Alejandro Gomez, Frank Oz and Francis Lawrence. Paul Newman, Halle Berry, Joanne Woodward, Robin Wright Penn, Eddie Murphy, Kevin James and Don Cheadle, to name a few, have counted on Van Lierop to make them camera-ready.
