Emily Ratajkowski dropped a stunning trio of black and white images to celebrate the life of legendary fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier, who died on March 21.

The supermodel posed entirely nude in two of the photos lensed by Demarchelier, 78, for a 2017 issue of Love Magazine. In the third, she wears a black leather ensemble

“So honored to have worked with the legend and the most lovely @patrickdemarchelier,” she wrote in the caption. “You will be missed.”

As the Daily Mail points out, fellow Demarchelier subjects Bella Hadid and Cindy Crawford also took to Instagram in reverence.

“I am grateful to have been lucky enough to be in front of your lens,” Hadid captioned her Vogue China cover, which also featured model Chu Wong. “Most gentle , most legendary , soft but full of life. You will be missed Patrick. Rest In Peace.”

Crawford posted a collage of magazine covers and classic portraits. “Rest In Peace, @patrickdemarchelier,” she wrote. “Thanks for so many great memories and beautiful, timeless images.”

Among the most thorough tributes came from the Instagram account of Rizzoli, a renowned publisher of high-end coffee table books, including Demarchelier’s Dior Couture.

“The French-born photographer, one of the most sought-after in his field, created fashion photographs that felt more like effortless, intimate portraits—a look that became a signature of 1990s fashion photography,” Rizzoli captioned a Kate Moss portrait, Dior images and others.

“While his work has appeared in almost every fashion magazine around the world, he worked for years as lead photographer for Harper’s Bazaar, later moving to Condé Nast where he shot exclusively for Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Allure. Demarchelier was also best known as Princess Diana’s personal photographer, producing images that personified her high style and natural beauty.”

Demarchelier is survived by his wife Mia, three sons and three grandchildren.

Hendrick’s Neptunia Gin Channels The Sights, Sounds & Smells Of The Sea

Ever since Hendrick’s rebooted the global palate by infusing its flagship spirit with a crisp cucumber note, the Scottish distiller has grown to become one of the most sought after gins on the planet. From home G&T enthusiasts to skilled mixologists, Hendrick’s high quality spirits now fuel cocktails from Aberdeen, Scotland to Aberdeen, Washington and back.

Always looking to bend the definitions of what’s possible in the category, Hendrick’s Master Distiller Lesley Gracie annually releases limited expressions that offer daring new challenges to the tongue. A couple years ago it was Orbium incorporating flavors traditionally associated with gin cocktails such as quinine found in the iconic G&T, and wormwood from a martini’s dry vermouth. She also blended blue lotus blossom to balance the alchemy.

And while last year’s special edition gin, the aptly named Lunar, was inspired by botanicals that ‘flourish below the light of the moon,’ for 2022 Hendrick’s sinks even deeper into the elements. At the Undersea Imaginarium & Spa popup Hendrick’s created in New York City last week the talented Master Distiller unveiled the latest potion from her Cabinet of Curiosities: Neptunia

As can be inferred from the name, Neptunia aims to capture the esoteric magic of the sea in glass. An oceanic message in the bottle, if you will. 

“I find listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore really therapeutic,” explains Ms. Gracie, who found inspiration for her latest creation wandering the rugged Ayrshire coast near Hendrick’s Gin Palace.

“Looking out onto the horizon and feeling the wind in your hair and the salty sea breeze on your face is just a great feeling – it’s so freeing, invigorating and calming all at the same time. I walk down the beach in Girvan every weekend with my dog and take in the sound of the waves and that particular smell you find no matter what beach you are on.”

Those scents, saline aromas and brisk winds embedded themselves in Gracie’s mind as she returned to Hendrick’s Gin Palace to experiment. Located just a couple miles from southwest Scotland’s crashing waves, its unsurprising Neptunia captures a blend of coastal botanicals and a crisp citrus finish.

To celebrate the limited release Hendrick’s brought the magic of sea to Tribeca last weekend, submersing guests into mysteries of the depth via their Neptunia Undersea Imaginarium & Spa.

The First Undersea Spa Experience, as Hendrick’s dubbed it, featured several unique aquatic-themed treatments such as a Journey to the Bottom of the Sea Hypnosis (with oceanic sounds and guided deep-sea meditation); Scottish Sea Breeze Aromatherapy; Mermaid Sensory Treatment (with sea sponge scrub, cucumber-cryo and sea-inspired hydration remedy); and even Octopus Tarot card readings. It was a fitting, recharging and invigorating way to welcome the new spirit into the world.

“Most of my creations are based on memories – I play around with botanicals and combine them to recreate certain sensations. Hendrick’s Neptunia for me is that freeing feeling of the sea bottled in a gin. You have that distinctive fresh character from coastal herbs, depth of flavor from the sea botanicals and an unmistakably clean, bright citrus finish that lifts in a round, refreshing way that makes it Hendrick’s.”

Look out for Neptunia’s seafoam green label, bottled at 43.4% ABV with a $39.99 SRP.

Tudor Debuts Stunning Trio Of Watches At Watches & Wonders 2022


Tudor isn’t a luxury watch brand to rest on its laurels, and there’s no time of year that exemplifies that much better than Watches & Wonders, the Geneva trade show that serves as a luxury watch bonanza. This year’s event has already allowed heavyweights like Rolex to introduce stunning new timepieces, and Tudor is getting in on the fun with three equally remarkable models.

Pricing runs the gamut from $3,675 to north of $7,000, a far cry from the price tags some Rolex watches fetch these days — and all the more reason to consider adding one of these coveted new watches to your collection.

Better still is the fact that the offering includes the new Black Bay Pro, a more than fair substitute for the Rolex 1655 Explorer II.

Tudor Black Bay Pro

Each watch in its own right is enough to bring some serious competition into the arena of luxury watchmaking, so to speak, from the sporty Black Bay Pro (a nicely sized 39mm stainless steel watch) to the elegantly rugged Black Bay GMT S&G, boasting a steel and yellow gold bracelet and a striking two-tone bezel.


The Black Bay GMT S&G might be our personal favorite, blending the refinement of steel and yellow gold with the sporty nature of a two-tone bezel.

It’s worth noting that each watch is available in at least three customized offerings, whether you prefer the GMT on its original steel and gold bracelet, or offered on a brown leather strap (to name but one example).


The Black Bay Chrono (retail price: $6,000) rounds out the trio in eye-catching fashion, with a 41mm stainless steel case set on a removable bund leather strap. Tudor calls it a blend of aquatic and motorsport heritage.

It’s truly a watch designed for the open road, with dual-chronograph functionality and a bezel that tracks units per hour.

All of the classic Tudor details beloved by watch enthusiasts are on display with these models, including the iconic “snowflake” hands as seen on the Black Bay GMT.


Considering the accessible nature of these timepieces, and their utility in the real world, each is worthy of its rightful place in your watch collection — and most importantly, on your wrist.

If Tudor’s recent launches are any indication, it’s going to be tougher than ever to get your hands on one — so bact quickly, before time runs out.

Wine Of The Week: Tiberio Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo

Tiberio Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo

Spring is here, which means rosé season is on the horizon. (Though if you put your mind to it, rosé season is really a year-round affair.) To prepare your palate for the summer-water, poolside-pink bottles of yacht-chic rosés, consider a rosy bottle fit for the in-between season.

Technically cerasuolo isn’t rosé, but it lives in that rosy realm between red and white. It’s a cherry red wine made in Abruzzo by macerating the juice of Montepulciano grapes with the skins until you get that concentrated deep pink color.

It’s lively, complex and dry— versatile enough to pair with everything from spring’s fresh produce to the last of winter’s stews. Fresh, tannic and perfumed, with notes of dried cherry, rhubarb, and wildflowers. $21
