In a love song to the Lone Star State, Vogue Mexico waxes moonstruck in its September issue embracing the high points of Houston, Dallas, Austin, and art-crazed Marfa, dubbing them as “four cities that are showing their total splendor in one state that looks to the future.”
Daniel González penned the article titled “Adios, Cowboys” which provides highlights of each city. He salutes The Joule, The Nasher, Gemma, and bespoke boot maker Miron Crosby in Dallas, while in Houston he gives a nod to The Menil Collection, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston Shop, the Four Seasons Hotel, and the Mishima Wagyu Tomahawk Steak served at Steak 48 in River Oaks District.
No surprises when it comes to focusing on Marfa — the Judd Foundation, 21-acre nomadic hotel ground El Cosmico, and Laventure in Hotel Saint George are highlighted. Austin is saluted for its “cultural underground” and spotlighted are Steak 48, Eberly, the South Congress Hotel, and the Sound on Sound music festival in November.
The grande dame of Houston, Lynn Wyatt, earns a four-page splash in the issue, this said to be her first Latin American feature. Karina González Ulloa profiles the “socialite who became a survivor in the changing theater of life.” The lengthy interview, including several very glamorous photos, covers many aspects of her life from her friendship with designers Karl Lagerfeld, Oscar de la Renta, and Carolina Herrera to her philanthropic causes including her role as cultural ambassador for the Rothko Chapel.
Photos of Wyatt on the Alley Theatre stage, at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar party and with de la Renta and with Herrera give visual testimony to her glamour and her place in the world of high fashion. For the photo shoot on the Alley stage, she wore an Erdem dress from Forty Five Ten Houston and Joyce Echols shoes. Ceron hair studio was responsible for the make-up.
