To illustrate our V family values, we revisit some of our most scrapbook-worthy clips. Below, makeup artist extraordinaire Peter Phillips shares tidbits from one of his favorite shoots.

PETER PHILIPS: It’s hard to pick one [favorite shoot]—there are so many exciting ones, all linked to great stories. The first time I saw [my work] in V was when you guys launched V0 and to see my Mickey Mouse makeup, shot by Willy Vanderperre, in print… I was like, OMG. My heart skipped a few beats. I must say that the “alphabet” that we shot with Inez and Vinoodh for V43, where every shot corresponded with a letter, was really special. It was a shooting marathon, where models would just walk in randomly. There were some extreme looks, some body painting, gorgeous still lifes… It was a long and exhausting shoot, but so super exciting to be a part of. I believe we actually shot the whole [story that day]. And still today, the shots look great and contemporary. Working with Inez and Vinoodh is always a pleasure. [With them and V, ] there is space for experimenting and space to make mistakes, so there’s no fear or insecurity. The energy on set is always controlled yet upbeat—no drama, only solutions, and positivity.
