TL;DR news on Halston at December 19, 2022
Born into humble Midwest beginnings, Roy Halston Frowick would become one of the most widely recognized names in fashion in the '70s and '80s. A new Netflix miniseries out now on the streaming platform, chronicles the rise and eventual fall of Halston, played by Ewan McGregor. Halston's brother, Robert Frowick, told the Associated Press that the designer spent his final months visiting with his siblings and driving the California coast in his beloved Rolls Royce. But David knows how to play Halston. Halston, Joe, and Elsa take her creation to David and his crony at Norton Simon, and the businessmen are not amused. Halston eventually concedes that maybe Victor is right and he should be getting out more, so he decides to meet him at the opening of a new nightclub called Studio 54. Brash and aggressive, Victor is the antithesis to the controlled demeanor that the workaholic Halston wants to project to the world. "Funny thing about that pillbox hat," Halston said during a 1966 interview, per Vogue. Ewan really connected with the pain of Halston and the longing of Halston, and how confusing it is to have to be an artist and a businessman at the same time.
