‘New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of, there’s nothing you can’t do. Let’s hear it for New York, New York, New york!’- from Empire State of Mind by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys
We support powerwomen. And so does V magazine. In their latest issue, the New York-issue (that will hit newsstands September 17 in Europe), Terry Richardson took pictures of notable NYC social women: Barbara Bush, Minnie Mortimer, Maggie Betts, Allison Sarofim, Rachel Roy, Shoshanna Gruss, Dr. Lisa Airan, and Byrdie Bell.
The editorial was inspired by New York city’s notable women in the 70’s; ‘The City in the 70’s had Lauren, Bianca, and Marisa, Who Knew Everyone, Went Everywhere, and Looked Fabulous Doing So. These Days Manhattan is Still a Girl’s Club but Its Members Aren’t Just Sitting Pretty – They’re Producing Films, Launching Fashion Lines, and Making New York a More Beautiful Place One Face at a Time.’
