In fact, with this all-inclusive system, the passenger is situated with drinks and meals included in the package price. In addition to a wide leisure infrastructure with swimming pools, spas, nightclubs, theaters, shops, shows and casinos, the travelers have all they can get to enjoy fun on their sailing days.

Annie Leibovitz: Intimidating and not. She talks about her new photo book ‘Wonderland,’ what celebrities are like and how magazines are less glossy

CHICAGO — Years ago I had a dream that I worked for Annie Leibovitz and she hated me, so she made me work on Thanksgiving and then she fired me because the alligator that I personally wrangled for Nicole Kidman to ride in a photograph for the next issue of Vanity Fair, the poor creature looked tired. I’m not joking about that dream. I think I had just read a biography of Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner and Leibovitz and her legend and herself factor hugely. She very much gave that magazine its look, and later became synonymous with outsized, crazily theatrical celebrity portraiture. That alligator thing, you can imagine it, right? Besides, when you’re Leibovitz, once you’ve suspended Ben Stiller in a bubble above the Seine, dressed Beyonce as Alice in Wonderland and arranged Lena Dunham inside a window display on a busy street — all actual pictures she created, two of those included in her new book, “Wonderland” — what is a dream?

Alumna Serves Families in Crisis. Now She’s in an Ad Campaign With Annie Leibovitz

It had been a long day. Danielle Woodhouse Johnson had just completed another week of long commutes from her home in Woodbridge to Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C., where she works full-time for an international development company. It was a Friday night in February 2020, just one month before COVID-19 shut down the country. It was dark, cold, and raining. Her feet ached in her high heel shoes, but her day was far from over.
