Profiles

Leave it to “Dreamgirls” producer Laurence Mark to reinterpret the Mulholland fantasy. He bought the one-acre property with an aging ranch-style house because he liked the address (“Mulholland is easy to remember”), the location (“It’s as far away from civilization as you can get while still being practical”) and the hint of the East Coast, where he grew up (the original house’s exterior was Cape Cod blue). Here are close-up looks at architects, artists, fashion designers,  models, billionaires, businessmen and designers (such as Philippe Starck and Ron Rezek in photo taken in Milan) and why they want what they want.
