HOLIDAYS × FREDERICKSBURG, TX

Tenth Annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony set for Friday, November 23, in Fredericksburg

Experience the unique mix of German Christmas traditions and warm Texan hospitality this holiday season in Fredericksburg. In partnership with the City of Fredericksburg, the Fredericksburg Convention & Visitor Bureau will begin the season with the lighting of the Community Christmas Tree and German Christmas Pyramid on the evening of Friday, November 23, at Marktplatz.

The festivities will begin at 6:00 p.m. on the East side of the Vereins Kirche with entertainment throughout the evening by The TubaMeisters, The Low Brass Project band, the Fredericksburg Chorale and the Fredericksburg Akkordeon Klub. The countdown and lighting ceremony will take place at 7:00 p.m.

Following the lighting ceremony, the entertainment will continue until 8:00 p.m. with more holiday favorites as Santa makes his way to the Oktoberfest Halle at Marktplatz, where free cookies, hot chocolate and bottled water will be available.

Cookies will be provided by a number of local businesses and hot chocolate will be prepared by the Fredericksburg Volunteer Fire Department.

Children are invited to take free photos with Santa (bring your own camera or phone), and groups are encouraged to take photos at the holiday selfie station, also at the Oktoberfest Halle.

In case of inclement weather, the entertainment and countdown will be relocated under the Adelsverein Halle at Marktplatz.

Lighting ceremony attendees can also enjoy outdoor ice skating until 10:00 p.m. on Friday, November 23, at Eisbahn in the Kinderhalle Pavilion at Marktplatz (for a fee). All day skating and skate rental is $15 per person, and tickets are available at the gate.

The German holiday spirit is most apparent with Fredericksburg’s 26-foot tall wooden German Christmas Pyramid that was hand-crafted in Germany in 2009 specifically for Fredericksburg. Considered staples in German holiday decorating, Christmas pyramids are wooden carousel-like structures (normally table-top size) that have several levels depicting Christmas motifs, such as angels and manger scenes.

Fredericksburg’s Community Christmas Tree, also part of the lighting ceremony, stands 30 feet tall and dons hand-crafted ornaments donated by Hill Country artisans. The beautifully lit Christmas tree and Christmas pyramid are the centerpiece of the holiday magic in Fredericksburg and will be prominently displayed at Marktplatz through January 6, 2019.

Make plans to attend the lighting ceremony with your family, friends and neighbors. To learn more about all of the holiday events in Fredericksburg and to download a free 2018 Fredericksburg Christmas & Holiday Guide, log on to holidays.VisitFredericksburgTX.com.

2019 PIRELLI CALENDAR

PIRELLI: “DREAMING”, THE 2019 PIRELLI CALENDAR

SHOT BY ALBERT WATSON, UNVEILED IN MILAN

A photographic tale of the aspirations of four women and their determination to achieve their goals, each one pursuing her own dreams and passions. This is “Dreaming”, the 2019 Pirelli Calendar, now in its forty-sixth edition, shot by Albert Watson in April in Miami and New York and unveiled today at Pirelli HangarBicocca in Milan.

A sequence of forty shots tells the stories of characters portrayed by Gigi Hadid with Alexander Wang, Julia Garner, Misty Copeland with Calvin Royal III and Laetitia Casta with Sergei Polunin.  The photographs, in colour and black and white, are in the cinematic 16:9 format, inspired by Albert Watson’s passion for the art of film.

“When I approached this project,” says Watson, “I wanted to do it in a way that was different from other photographers, and I wondered what the best way would be. In the end, I looked for pictures that were of beautiful quality, with depth to them, and that had some kind of narrative. I wanted to create something that was more than just a portrait of somebody – I wanted it to look like a film still. I wanted people looking at the Calendar to see that my aim was photography in its purest form, exploring the women I was photographing and creating a situation that would convey a positive vision of women today.”

Telling the story of how he came to make the Calendar (see the interview below), the photographer talks of his own dreams, and of the efforts and sacrifices that they entailed.

“To make a dream come true, you have to work hard. I’ve always taken it step by step, reaching one goal at a time, without wanting to get immediately to the top of the ladder. Even though I sometimes think this ladder could go on up forever, with the top rung ever-further away, I think it’s always worth giving yourself increasingly ambitious goals and dreams.”

He said that each of the four women focuses on the future and “has her own individuality, her own particular purpose in life, and her own way of doing things. So the underlying theme is that of ‘dreams’, but the basic idea behind the whole project is that of telling a story in four ‘little movies’. What I wanted to convey were the protagonists’ hopes and their way of thinking about the future, in a way that would bring with it the aspect of dreaming.”

An example of this is the character played by Gigi Hadid, he explained. She has recently separated from her partner, lives alone in a glass tower and has Alexander Wang as her only friend and confidant: “I think there’s a degree of angst in these images. With Hadid’s character, I wanted to convey the sense of a woman thinking about her future, but also showing her in a situation of loneliness. We see her thinking about where she is going to go in life, what she will be doing tomorrow. I wanted it to be much more minimalistic than the other women and settings I photographed.”

Julia Garner plays the part of a young photographer who loves nature and solitude. Of her, Watson says; “Julia’s a very, very accomplished actress and she got straight into the character. She played a botanical photographer who dreams of putting on successful exhibitions. We were in a beautiful tropical garden in Miami, which turned out to be the perfect place for us to work.

Misty Copeland, whose partner in the Calendar is Calvin Royal III, also looks to the future, fantasising about making a name for herself in the world of dance. “Trying to be successful is her driving force,” said Watson. “Copeland’s character earns her living by dancing in a club, but at the same time she has also put up a little stage in her garden, where she practices dancing in order to become a star, sometimes with her boyfriend, played by Calvin Royal III.”

Lastly, Laetitia Casta is a painter who lives in a studio apartment with her partner, played by Sergei Polunin. They both dream of success: she as an artist, he as a dancer. “What’s interesting”, says Watson, “is that, in real life, Laetitia really does do a lot of sculpting and creates artwork in her spare time. This worked out very well and helped her get into character. We decided to shoot outside, to give the scenes some added natural brightness. The tropical atmosphere of Miami is a key component in this picture.”

Q&A WITH ALBERT WATSON

How did you approach the Pirelli Calendar project?

The Pirelli Calendar is a unique project for any photographer. When I first took it on, I wanted to do it in a way that would be different from that of other photographers, and I wondered what the best way would be. In the end, I looked for pictures that were of beautiful quality, with depth to them, and that had some kind of narrative. I wanted to create something that was more than just a portrait of somebody – I wanted it to look just like a film still. I wanted people looking at the Calendar to see that my aim was photography in its purest form, exploring the women I was photographing and creating a situation that would convey a positive vision of women today.

How did you formulate the project?

I wanted to ensure there would be a strong narrative, so I thought: “Let’s try and make the shots look like film stills.” Quite a lot of it was shot in widescreen format. And that was quite challenging. Each of the four women has her own individuality, her own particular purpose in life, and her own way of doing things. And they are all focused on their future. So the underlying theme is that of “dreams”, but the basic idea behind the whole project is that of telling a story in four ‘little movies’.

Could you tell us about the stories that bring your Calendar to life?

Each character has a part to play in the 2019 Pirelli Calendar. In some cases, the role was close to what the actress does for a living, but here they were certainly all acting a part. Not themselves. And that’s what I wanted.

The woman played by Gigi Hadid has just split up with her companion. She has a confidant, not a boyfriend, played by the designer Alexander Wang. He is helping her get over this difficult time. I think there’s a degree of angst in these images. With Gigi Hadid’s character, I wanted to convey the sense of a woman thinking about her future, but also showing her in a situation of loneliness. We see her thinking about where she’s going to go in life, what she’ll be doing tomorrow. I wanted her to be much more minimalistic than the other women I photographed, and I wanted her to be reflected in the settings I portrayed her in. The settings of the other protagonists are pretty crowded, and there’s action in almost all of them.”

Julia Garner’s character is a botanical photographer who dreams of putting on successful exhibitions. Julia’s a very, very accomplished actress and she got straight into the character. We were in a beautiful tropical garden in Miami, which turned out to be the perfect place for us to work.

Misty Copeland and Calvin Royal III, on the other hand, play the part of two dancers who want to become famous and live in an Art Deco house. She’s dreaming of dancing in Paris. She is looking to the future and has ambitions. Trying to be successful is her driving force. Copeland’s character earns her living by dancing in a club, but at the same time she has also put up a little stage in her garden, where she practices dancing in order to become a star, sometimes with her boyfriend, played by Calvin Royal III.

The artist played by Laetitia Casta lives in a studio apartment, which she shares with her partner, played by Sergei Polunin. They are both dreaming of success: she as an artist, he as a dancer. We decided to shoot outside, to give the scenes some added natural brightness. The tropical atmosphere of Miami is a key component in this picture. What’s interesting is that Laetitia told me that, in her spare time, she really does do a lot of sculpting and creates artwork. This worked out very well and helped her get into character.

What was the role played by light in this project?

When I was young, the first famous person I photographed was Alfred Hitchcock. He said: “My dear boy, once you’ve finished the storyboard, the movie is finished – all I have to do is shoot it.” There’s a certain amount of his message that has stayed with me. The 2019 Calendar is like a cinematic storyboard. I was very lucky because I trained as a graphic designer for four years and then I went to The Royal College of Art Film School for three years and I came out as a director. I never trained as a photographer and, from that point on, I had to learn to be a photographer and know about lighting. As a photographer, the technical things for me were very difficult, it wasn’t natural. Intuitively, a cinematic aesthetic was quite natural for me to follow. A lot of my work is based on graphics and film or sometimes on a combination of the two. It was quite easy for me to drop into this for the Calendar and produce images like film stills. It was a matter of making all these different elements come together and make a strong narrative. The common denominator is that these people are all active: they’re thinking of their future and they’re dreaming of where they might be in five, ten, twenty years…

Did you like working on the set?

I know some people work well with a lot of tension on set, and part of their creativity comes from this, but I’m actually the opposite of that. If I’m having fun with people, if I’m enjoying being with them and playing around, I get a lot more out of them. I sometimes say to young photographers that it’s ‘location, location, location’. But in a case like this, it’s more ‘preparation, preparation, preparation’. The more you prep for the job, the more creative it will be. It’s thinking and planning, planning, planning. That’s what’s really important.

I had a tremendous amount of support when creating the vision for the Calendar. Steve Kimmel was the art director, along with Arnold Barros and Belinda Scott, and they did a brilliant job. Thanks to their dedication, it all went perfectly. James Kaliardos did our make-up. He did a fantastic job, beautiful, invisible, but yet there. The hair, by Kerry Warne, was always natural for each of the women. He’s had a lot of experience in film work, so he was perfect for this project.

Julia Von Boehm did the styling and fashion editing. On top of that, I had my own team of assistants and digital editors, Taro Hashimura and Emi Robinson, as well as Adrian Potter. All these people contributed in a great way, so this was definitely much more like a film project than a photography one.

Have you fulfilled your dreams?

To make a dream come true, you need to work hard. I’ve always taken it step by step, reaching one goal at a time, without wanting to get immediately to the top of the ladder. Even though I sometimes think this ladder could go on up forever, with the top rung ever-further away, I think it’s always worth giving yourself increasingly ambitious goals and dreams.

ACQUALINA × ROLLS- ROYCE CULLINAN

MIAMI’S MANSIONS AT ACQUALINA $38 MILLION PENTHOUSE TO INCLUDE ROLLS-ROYCE CULLINAN

The most anticipated motor car of 2018, Cullinan, provides the final luxurious touch to the $38 million penthouse at the Mansions at Acqualina in Miami, Florida. Coming just weeks after its global press debut in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the showcase at Acqualina marks the arrival of Cullinan for Rolls-Royce lovers of luxury in South Florida. Cullinan has quickly become the most sought after motor car in the luxury market today and Acqualina has chosen to make it part of this totally move-in-ready penthouse, ‘Palazzo del Cielo.’ The Rolls-Royce will add to the Acqualina property’s garage that has the honor of holding more personally owned Rolls-Royce Motor Cars than any other in the world.

“No luxury collection is truly complete without a Rolls-Royce Motor Car,” said Martin Fritsches, President of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Americas. “This is especially true at the Acqualina properties, where so many members of our Rolls-Royce family reside. Cullinan is the latest addition to our collection and we are thrilled that the new owner of ‘Palazzo del Cielo’ will enjoy this effortless luxury.” To celebrate the announcement, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is showcasing at the property a stunning Bespoke Cullinan with Magma Red exterior and an interior of Bespoke Tan and Black leatherwork with Open Pore Blackwood veneer.


“The award-winning team at STA Architectural Group has traveled the world to source the most unique and desirable materials to apply to the floors, walls, countertops, vanity tops and even the baseboards of ‘Palazzo del Cielo’,” said Michael Goldstein, President of Sales for Acqualina Realty. “People who buy a $38 million penthouse want to walk in the door and not have to do anything but enjoy it.”

‘Palazzo del Cielo’ comes fully furnished and accessorized with a multi-million dollar custom design by Luxury Living/Fendi Casa and features marble flooring throughout including terraces and ceilings up to 15’ and 30’ in some areas. As the Acqualina brand is home to the largest collection of independently owned Rolls-Royce vehicles in the world and The Mansions at Acqualina’s house car is a Red Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II, it is only fitting that ‘Palazzo del Cielo’ includes the first all-wheel drive Rolls-Royce. 

Rolls-Royce Cullinan is available for Bespoke Commission at any Rolls-Royce Motor Cars authorized dealer. First deliveries of Cullinan have just begun and reach full pace in early 2019. Created using the newly revealed ‘Architecture of Luxury’, Cullinan offers Rolls-Royce patrons extraordinary new opportunities to Bespoke their commission.

“The super-luxury lifestyle is evolving and Rolls-Royce is in the lead. Luxury is no longer an urban concept. More and more it is about embracing and experiencing the wider world. Our customers expect to go everywhere in luxury, effortlessly and without compromise, conquering the most challenging terrain to enjoy life’s most enriching experiences, wherever they may be. For this reason, they have asked us to create a Rolls-Royce that offers uncompromised luxury wherever they dare to venture. Cullinan is that car. It is Effortless, Everywhere.” – Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars
